NYC – Appleicious Glossy Lip Balms
This post may contain affiliate links.
I have just discovered these Applelicious Glossy Lip Balms from budget beauty brand NYC (New York Color). They are great value and give just a hint of colour making them perfect for those ‘no make-up days’.
I went for Pink Lady which is a bright pink colour and Blushing Golden which is a pale creamy beige colour. The moisturising lip balm is the apple-shaped centre section, while the outer portion gives the creamy hint of colour. They have a pleasant, if somewhat chemical-ly, apple scent. The packaging is ok for a budget beauty brand and fairly sturdy.
You can see from the swatch on my arm that the colours are extremely sheer, the pink one is my favourite as it is really nice and creamy. The creamy beige one is a little too frosted and shimmery for my liking and shows up any dry skin or creases on the lips, so be sure to exfoliate and moisturise your lips before wearing it (kind of defeats the point of wearing a lip balm really).
After taking photos of my lips I have just realised how pale my face looks…. need to stock up on some facial fake tan!
These NYC Applelicious Glossy Lip Balms are available from Superdrug at just £2.49 each. What’s more, at the time of writing this they are currently on 2 for £3, well worth the money I’d say! I will be trying more products from the NYC range soon.
