NYC Ultra Moist Lip Wear 301B Cafe'

Here's another NYC lipstick review on Ultra Moist Lip Wear 301B Cafe'. I loved the Violet Shine shade I've had for months now so I decided to try this one as well because the shade is a very pretty nude. It's a bronze-y, pinkish, peach-y shade lip color which I heard is comparable to MAC's Viva Glam V, Loreal's Carmel Latte and Revlon's Champagne on Ice, so if you're looking for a dupe of these more pricey lipsticks, you may want to try this one first :). 

It's a very creamy and easy to apply balm-like lipstick. I have no issues with staying power because it lasts pretty good. You can certainly build it up but you won't need to because it's extremely pigmented.

This lipstick is quite frosty and may put you off if you're not into pearly lip colors. I already expected it before I got it since Violet Shine is also very metallic. However, you can soften it by adding a nude gloss on top. This is the lipstick I used on the Plum Eyes FOTD that I did yesterday and it looked good. You can check the pictures by clicking on the link. I have to say that the pearls are not too noticeable unless you look closer. I'm not too crazy about it when worn alone but adding a lip gloss or a lip balm makes it look pretty nice. You can wear it alone if you're going for a matte face to add drama to the look as it adds attitude to the lips. This shade will suit fair skin more, but could look too frosty if you have tanned skin.

 I really like the effect this lipstick gives on the look. It's a great shade to wear if you're sporting a dramatic smokey eye. It's not an ideal shade to wear during day time because of the frost but you certainly can if you want to!

My verdict: 4.5 STARS!!! The quality is good for the price which you can get for $0.99 and is worth the try if you're into collecting lipsticks and like to try different brands. 



  1. i like the color! but i'm not so into the frosty type.

  2. Yeah it's a little too frosty but the color is so amazing that I just have to make it work :D.
