NYC New York Color Extreme Lip Glider Lip Gloss in Plaza Punch
Just another shiny drugstore gloss? Not hardly. These NYC New York Color Extreme Glider Lip Glosses feel way more expensive than they should for $3 each. Smooth, thin and slick on my lips, they could almost pass for melted butter if it wasn’t for one little thing…
Butter tastes good.
I’ve tried three of the 10 shades, and all of them taste and smell like a strong blend of children’s cough syrup and fruit punch concentrate; luckily, it dissipates after a few minutes of wear.
Coverage varies widely among the colors, with some of them, like Downtown Brown and Metro Mauve, applying so sheer that I can barely see any pigment on my lips, while others, like Plaza Punch, have plenty of pigment to spare.
The three I have contain glitter, which looks kinda chunky in the tube, so I expected them to feel gritty, but they don’t. In fact, they could probably pass for MAC Lipgelées (LOVE) if not for the flavor and scent…

I get about two hours of wear time from these, which isn’t bad considering the price. If you like smooth, non-sticky, glittery glosses that won’t break the bank (and can get over the questionable combination of flavor and scent), consider giving these Extreme Lip Gliders a try.
AVAILABILITY: At select drugstores (I found them at Target)
