Creamy Mauve, a light pastel pink:



Smooth Beige, a sheer nude:



I’ve tried NYC before, but I’m not sure I’d ever tried their lipsticks, so this was an interesting experience. The company claims that they are satin matte, but I felt they were extremely sheer and glossy. They felt great on the lips, though – moisturizing and light! There was no taste and they glided onto the lips. They last about as long as lipgloss because of the glossy feel and because they do not stick to the lips. For $1.99, I feel they were definitely worthwhile. For the price, I was not disappointed with the packaging, either, but I would prefer a better looking one. Creamy Mauve was sadly not the color I expected, especially since Mauve is a deeper tone. I would definitely try the other colors out simply because they were really comfortable and moisturizing!

Press sample. All opinions are honest and my own.


  1. I am in love with Smooth Beige! I’m so used to you in bright, bold or deep tones and even the beige looks incredible on you!

  2. These are both gorgeous shades that I would definitely wear. Even though the Mauve, like you stated, is a light pastel pink– I find it really lovely! As with every single lippie that you have worn, these two look gorgeous on you!

  3. Is Creamy Mauve the tube on the top in the photos? The color on your lips looks nothing like the shade of the tube and nothing like mauve! It is pretty though, and as always, you look fabulous in absolutely every shade! I thought the tube of the Creamy Mauve might be something I could wear, but not so. Nevertheless, for $1.99, I’ll take a look next time I’m at CVS or Ulta!

    • You are so sweet, Allison! ? Yes, the tube on the top that looks mid-tone pink, but was in reality, bubblegum pastel pink. For $1.99, it’s definitely worth a shot! 🙂

  4. You’re right. I can’t see a tint of matte-ness from your photos

  5. Okay, so they’re not very matte, but I love the shades (even the not so mauve, mauve.)

  6. Very pretty colors!

  7. The beige is very flattering on you!

  8. I like the sheer nude on you <3

  9. I really love smooth beige! Gorgeous!
