NYC New York Color Big Bold Gloss Review

A few weeks ago I received this NYC Big Bold Lip Gloss from Influenster which I have been interested in trying for a little while! This lip gloss is pretty large and priced at only $3.99, and it has a pretty good shade range (12 shades). The shade I got is called 467 Pleasantly Plumped Pink.

I already mentioned the large size of this gloss, but the applicator is also pretty huge! It's almost the size of my lips! I put it next to the NYC Liquid Lipshine Lip Gloss below (it's on the right). I would say the Liquid Lipshine has a normal sized applicator, so you can get a good size comparison.

I'm really happy with this shade as well. This color is really nice for everyday wear, and the color looks nice on a lot of different lipstick shades. Here's a swatch of it:

This gloss applies very smoothly, and it does not feel sticky at all! It's also claims to give up to 4 hours of shine which is definitely true! Usually I don't get much lasting power if a gloss isn't sticky, but I'm happy with how long this one wears. 

This does claim to be a plumping gloss, however, I don't notice a large difference in the size of my lips. It tingles when first applied, so I think there is slight plumping action. Also I'm not a huge fan of the smell. I can't really describe it, but has some sort of chemical smell. It don't notice it after I apply it to my lips though, so it doesn't bother me much.

Even though it doesn't plump my lips that much and the smell isn't the best, I really like this product. I use it daily because it feels very comfortable on my lips. The amount of product is also great too, especially for the price! I'm really glad I got the opportunity to try this, and I do plan on purchasing more shades. 

*disclaimer: Although I received this product complimentary from Influenster, my opinions are honest!* 


  1. Thank you for the info. The color is pretty, specially around winter time.

  2. I have seen these in the store and have considered getting them on numerous occasions, they seem okay for a simple gloss.

  3. I can't lie, NYC is normally a brand I skip right over in the drug store. I might take a look at these next time though.

  4. It looks like a pretty color and good that it's comfortable <3
