Personally I loved putting these on for quick trips and even for filming because they have great impact on camera. But while they do have a decent wear time of around 3 hours, I find these a little heavy and reapplication isn’t as comfortable as I’d like. Ideally, you’re better off removing the lipstick all together and putting it on again fresh.
The New York Color Get It All Lipsticks make excellent beginners products and are excellent colour payoff at a drugstore price point. Though not a first choice for dry lips, these can take on a photo-shoot or big event in a pinch and no one would know the difference by how pretty they look. The heart of the N.Y.C. brand has always been young, fun,
vibrant and these lipsticks fit right in. Despite them not being perfect, I still find myself reaching for them quite often and I might even pick up a lighter colour or two.
