bright idea

I've said before that I'm not a huge lipstick fan. I feel like the shape of my lips is all off, and lipstick tends to move or crease in my lip lines throughout the day. I used to think my dislike of lipstick was tied more to color than performance, since lipsticks usually, you know, are colored. And I tend to enjoy a certain look of nothingness on my lips. But I've been trying out several nude shades lately, and I retain my general dislike of lipstick.

Enter another Influenster product. I received NYC Expert Last lip color in Forever Fuchsia. I'll tell you upfront that NYC is not a brand I typically grab, and bright pink is definitely a shade I keep far from my pucker. However, I have been pleasantly surprised by this product.
I'm still too afraid to use this bright of a color on a regular basis, but remember all  those things I said I dislike about lipstick? Yeah, they're not a problem with this one. I don't need to line my lips to keep them looking a normal shape. The color isn't sticky but it stays put. Lines have not been a problem.

I put this lip color on out of an obligation to try out the free product I received, but I have surprised myself by kind of loving it.
While I received this product complimentary, I will never share opinions on this blog that are not entirely my own.
