Stick it to your lips with NYC, Rimmel, Revlon and CoverGirl - with swatches!

I'm a lazy lip product applier so I love the jumbo crayon format that so many companies are coming out with now - the smaller applicator surface means colour goes on a lot more precisely without any work! Here are a few gracing my lips now:

NYC CityProof Twistable Intense Lip Color - $4.99 - in 12 shades: Nolita Neutral, Brooklyn Brown Stone, Riverside Rose, Parsons Pink, Fulton St Fuchsia, Metropolitan Mauve, Gramercy Park Plum, South Ferry Berry, Ballroom Blush, Park Slope Peach, Canal St Coral and Roosevelt Island Red - with intense, high-density colour pay-off and a shiny, medium-gloss finish.
Fulton St Fuchsia- I must admit out of all the ones I tried this is my fave, not only is the colour great, it smells like Sweet Tarts, and who doesn't like Sweet Tart lips?!
Rimmel Lasting Finish Colour Rush Long Lasting Intense Colour Balm - $6.99 - in 14 shades: Give Me A Cuddle, Make Me Blush, All You Need Is Pink, I Want Candy, Keep Mauving, Boom Chic A Boom, Rumour Has It, Viva Violet, The Redder, The Better, On Fire, Sun Kissed, Lady Marmalade, Not An Illusion, Drive Me Nude - that offer long-lasting and intense colour in a handy jumbo pencil format to leave lips looking great and feeling soft.
Give Me A Cuddle
Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm - $9.95 - in 10 shades: Ingenue, Coy, Demure, Coquette, Vivacious, Flirtatious, Whimsical, Tease, Provocateur, Enticing - that offer high shine, shimmering lacquer and balm-like moisture. Infused with a triple butter complex make up of shea, mango and coconut butter and a peppermint fragrance that makes your lips smell like a candy cane!
CoverGirl LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balm - $7.99 - in 16 shades: Toffee Twist, Ballet Twist, Blush Twist, Watermelon Twist, Haute Pink Twist, Rose Twist, Berry Twist, Coral Twist, Apricot Twist, Ruby Twist, Scarlet Twist, Jam Twist, Plum Twist, Mocha Twist, Cocoa Twist, Mauve Twist - fortifies with shea and mango butters for a soft shine without a sticky feel.

  1. Where did you purchase the NYC CityProof Twistable Intense Lip Colors? I can't find them anywhere!

    1. There was a big display at the Walmart in Toronto - it's a new products so it might not have made it's way to Calgary yet, keep looking out for it!

  2. I have a debate on buying them but now I'll definitely get rimmel or NYC ones ! ^__^

  3. I had a reaction to the NYC ones. Totally dried my lips up after one use.

  4. I have a few of these, except any from Cover girl, and I find the colour they leave behind is completely different from when I first apply it. Rimmels Drive Me Nude leaves a really bright pinky red colour on my lips. Still looks good but definitely not a nude.

    1. All of this should be a good indicator that you have defective lips! I'll see if I can find a telethon for this... ;-)
