NYC Cosmetics just launched their Cosmic Metals Lip Creams. There are 10 shades on the Ulta website but I think there is actually more because one of the shades I'm going to talk about isn't on the website anymore. These are lip creams and not at all like liquid lipsticks. So these transfer, they're heavier, and act more like a super pigmented gloss. Which is fine by me because they are very metallic so I don't mind that they fade away and I'd rather them transfer or fade as opposed to rub off or crumble like a liquid lipstick.
These run for $7.49 and if you're lucky sometimes you'll catch it buy one get one 50% off. Plus Ulta always has a $3.50 off coupon. Which is what I done. What I like about this line is that there are odd colors, bright colors, and bold colors. What I don't like so much is that they don't have really good wearable everyday shades too. Like I'd like to see a dark red, a dark berry, a cool toned brown or a taupe maybe. Packaging wise they're really nice and heavy. They're obviously affordable and they don't seem to have any smell to me. They're really pigmented and opaque with lots of shimmer.
This shade is "Speed of Light" which isn't on the Ulta site right now. I got this hoping it would be a bit more bronzey and darker. It's more like a rose gold bronze color that's actually quite bright. Still though it's very pretty and different.
This shade is "Extraterrestrial". Again it wasn't what I expected. I thought it would be like a dark gunmetal. It's close to that but it has some green in it in my opinion. I really like this because it's soooo different from anything I have. I like how dark it is. As you can probably tell these look very glossy and they kinda feel that way too. So once again, if you're looking for a metallic liquid lip then this is not your bag.
So all in all I think these are really nice formula wise and as far as a lip cream goes. I do wish they had some more wearable shades like I said earlier because these aren't something I'm going to wear that often. That's about the only con I can give you on these.
I'm a makeup and skincare lover. I have always enjoyed creating looks but I love to help people with product knowledge and application even more. I've been able to do these things because God has seen fit to bless me with the opportunity.
