NYC City Duet Lip Color- Review & Swatches

August 2, 2013, 1 Comment

Hello everyone!!

Those who know me, know that I’m not much for wearing lipstick. But I’ve been trying to be a bit more adventurous and try to dress my lips. I was hanging out with my sister in CVS not too long ago and we were checking out the makeup area (of course!). While looking at the NYC Makeup display I saw this lipstick and thought it was curious. Why? ‘Cause it has two shades!!! You’re probably thinking, “so what?” Well, for someone who doesn’t wear lipstick and is trying to get into it but not even sure which shade to purchase having two options in one was like a genius moment, duh! Why didn’t I think of that before? jajajaja Anyways, I purchased “The Rock A Fellas” which is a coral shade and completely fell in love with it! I went the week after and took advantage of a CVS sale (buy one get one 50% off) and got the other four shades. These lipsticks retail for $2.99, but with the sale you can get it anywhere between $1.50 and $2- awesome!

NYC City Duet Lip Color

Alright, so let me share some swatches and opinions on each, maybe make it easier for you to choose your shade! 😉

 So how cool is it that out of 5 lipsticks you get 10 shades?! Scratch that, 15+ shades!! (you get a different shade when you  mix the two of them!) So on to the individual shades…

NYC City Duet Lip Color The Hot Pinks

The Hot Pinks

They really live up to the name! These are two shades of very hot bright pinks. They have a shimmery texture. They’re more cool tone. Not my favorite…very 80’s feel! But it could be something fun to wear, just not an every day shade.

 

 

NYC City Duet Lip Color The Vintage Pinks

The Vintage Pinks

These are very similar to the hot pinks but toned down a bit. Again, also shimmery. The lighter shade I feel it’s too light. Also not of my favorites. I’m just not into the shimmer on my lips.

 

 

 

NYC City Duet Lip Color The Red Hots

The Red Hots

I love red. It’s one of my favorite colors. Also, a bold red lip I just find it to be so pretty and sassy! I really like that this shade is not shimmery! They are more creamy. The shade is a more cool tone than the photo portrays. I like this one a lot, specially if I’m feeling a bit more adventurous!! jajaja 😉

 

 

NYC City Duet Lip Color The Rock A Fellas

The Rock A Fellas

This has got to be my favorite of all five!! One of the shades is like a bright coral and the other is like a light salmon, both beautiful shades!! I feel the picture doesn’t do it justice! Again, no shimmer, it’s a creamy finish. I just love it. It has been my go to these past few weeks!

 

 

NYC City Duet Lip Color The Waldorf Roses

The Waldorf Roses

On this one the darker shade is a bit more shimmery but not as shimmery as the first two lipsticks I mentioned! I really like these shades of pink. The light shade feels almost as if you could use it as a nude shade. Overall very pretty pinks.

 

 

All in all for $2.99 I think they’re a steal! They go on smoothly, and have good pigmentation. Also, something neat you could do with these is create an “ombre” look on your lips! Great value! If you’re on the lookout for some new lip products definitely give these a try. There are other shades available so go check your local CVS or Walmart for these!

Have you guys tried these? If so, what shades? What’s your opinion about it? Is it a hit or miss for you?

Thanks for reading! Catch you next time! ♥

 

 

P.S. All photos were taken and edited by me. Please do not use them without permission. Also, these were purchased by me, I don’t get paid to say what I do. All I said is my own personal opinion and experience. 😉

    I have been using NYC since I was in highschool. Their lipsticks are oh so soft! Snowcone is one I have gone back to again and again and again. I have been on a red kick and now I have Nyc’s Ruby and Red Flame lipsticks. Lovely review!
