NYC New York Color Applelicious Lip Balm

Just a quick review of the New York Color Appleicious Glossy Lip Balm ($2.99; Press Samples), launched back in January as part of the brand's spring lineup! The balm itself has a nice tint and the apple core moisturizes with a hint of shine. These come in ten shades ranging from reds & pinks to nude browns!

L-R : Blushing Golden, Big Apple Red, Chocolate Apple, Applelicious Pink 

The packaging is like a regular, twist up tube - pretty sturdy for the price. The colors are mostly shimmery, the lighter ones a tad frostier than the darker shades that seem more wearable on my skintone. The moisture core adds a touch of shine and a little bit of glossiness too that wears off sooner than the color does, after about 2 hours. I only needed a swipe for the darker colors to show up and the shimmer isn't very obvious once on the lips. The lighter shades though have quite obviously chunky shimmer. Now, these are a lip balm, but they are neither too moisturizing, nor drying. I find them to be good this time of the year and they would definitely wear better over another lip balm in the winter.

L-R : Applelicious Pink, Blushing Golden, Big Apple Red, Chocolate Apple 

If you have very dry lips, try to stick with the pinks or anything with a little more color as there's not much shimmer to emphasize dryness. As for the scent, there's a slight fruity scent that doesn't bother me much and fades pretty quickly. Overall, its a nice little budget buy, good to toss into your bag for a quick wash of color!
