NYC Lippies Swatch + NOTD

By  | 

Since I have been religiously sharing Fashion Ensemble inspiration and Sponsored product reviews, I have decided to take a break today and share a lipstick swatch and nail art [Nail of the Day]. It’s been a while now since I have added this lipstick swatch/review in my upcoming post and had I have been meaning to scratch it off my list. Finally today is the day. LOL.


NYC New York Color Ultra Last LipWear is wearable, ultra lasting and stays on up to 6 hours. Perfect for your morning meetings and all-night parties. The rich, silky formula is so creamy and comfortable. It’s super-affordable too. Great for women on the go.

Verdict: The lipstick is very easy to apply and at the same time last for a long time. I really love the shade but I could barely see much difference between 407 and 411 when applied already to my lips. I will taking pictures for it soon and I’ll post it here when I get the chance. I just hope I don’t forget. 😛 I really love the hint of shimmer and makes my lips kind of stand out. I would say this lippies are best for parties and social gathering. Not for a typical day out. It leans more towards glam and high fashion style.

Overall: 7/10 I love it and adore both lipstick to bits except —they broke and cracked 🙁 Both are new and have never been exposed to heat so I don’t see a reason for it to break. If not I would totally give it a 10/10 rating. Tsk! But that’s okay I’ll just depot them and will try to film it so I can show y’all how I do it. It retails from $1.99 + shipping depending on where you’ll be buying it.

FTC: FTC: All products were bought with my own money. I’m not affiliated with any of the companies/brands mentioned. This is my honest opinion.

Now for the NOTD, I have been seeing tons of stars [singers, actresses, etc.] sporting a solid nail polish with one nail on both hands with nail art. Obviously, I am eager to try out the latest craze. So I have chosen bright red for my main nail color and used peach as my base color for my nail art and black for the design. I have the placed the nail art on both my ring finger and have used Leopard and Zebra print. Here’s a few snaps on how my NOTD turned out.

Personally I like how it looks. It’s different and bold and says so much of the person wearing it. After all our manicure does leave an impression of our character. Mine simply says I am fashionable, a risk taker, and I am not afraid to flaunt it. 🙂 Yay or Nay? Let me know what you think. xox

My name is Angela Ricardo Bethea and I am the founder and editor behind ( and many other online publications ) ... I love the finer things in life, I'm quite a shop-a-holic and a certified jet-setter. So if I am not behind my laptop to blog, I'd probably be shopping if not traveling.

    The lippies look gorgeous! Too bad they broke.. 🙁 I’m excited to see how you’ll depot them. I personally haven’t tried depotting anything yet.. >.< Anyway, love your nails. I don't think I can sport something that bold though.. ^^ I'm not as fierce and brave as you are.

    Lippies look nice.  I too, find they lean more on the glam side and for parties.  The colours are really fun and flirty 🙂
