NYC Applelicious Glossy Lip Balm - Big Apple Red

I'm a huge fan of tinted lip balms, some of my favourites are Covergirl's Smoochies & Maybelline's Baby Lips. I've been trying out one of NYC Applelicious Glossy Lip Balm in the shade Big Apple Red* ($2.99/3.5g), and I have to say that I'm really impressed! I used to own a lot of products from NYC when I first started wearing makeup, and I'm happy to be reunited with the brand!



"Big City! Big Apple! Big Care! Need a touch of cushiony sweetness in the daily grind of NYC? Only NYC New York Color could find the city’s soft spot with their new deliciously ‘feel good’ APPLELICIOUS lip balm that will deliver color, shine and moisture in one single swipe! Just like the Big Apple itself it’s juicy, shiny and colorfully loud but also reveals a softer and more caring side. Color is fun and fruity and with a hidden apple core of care it’s also delightfully moist. This ‘oh so cute!’ apple-shaped core reinforces the moisturizing properties of the rest of the balm and gives your lips a healthier look! The apple on the cake? A fruity apple scent that will make your lips irresistibly kissable!" - NYC


The packaging of NYC's Applelicious Glossy Lip Balms is so cute - I love the apple shaped core in the balm! This balm also has a very fruity scent to it, I find it to be a mix of apples and cherries, and I really like it. Since this is a tinted lip balm, you won't get full coverage colour from this product - just a light wash of colour. The shade Big Apple Red gives a beautiful light red shade to my lips which can be built up a little bit. I personally really like sheer colours like this one, because they're so easy to apply. I can apply this on the go, without a mirror. That's something that I wouldn't be able to do with a traditional red lipstick! I also really like how hydrating this formula is without feeling thick. This balm just glides onto my lips, and it actually lasts throughout light eating and drinking. I find that I have to reapply every 3-4 hours, which I find to be pretty good. For $2.99, I don't think that you can go wrong!



I highly recommend checking out NYC's Applelicious Glossy Lip Balms if you're a fan of sheer lip colours. The shade Big Apple Red is a beautiful red with pink undertones that gives a sheer wash of colour to my lips. I absolutely love how glossy this balm is, it almost looks like I'm wearing a lip gloss at times! Have you tried this formula from New York Colour? What are your favourite products from this brand?

  4. I enjoy mine but at the same time, I don't find myself reaching for it that often. I guess I just consider it more of a product that's geared towards a younger audience.
