Face of the Day: THAT IS MAHOGANY!


    Would you believe me if I told you this lipstick I’m wearing today was 99 cents? That’s right, this is my first run trying NYC’s Ultra Moist LipWear lipstick in Mahogany. I’m actually extremely surprised about how pigmented the color is, and that it’s not drying at all (yet). It’s been two hours and the color is still very bold… although I haven’t eaten anything yet so we’ll see how it holds up after lunch! I might pick up a few more while NYC is 40% off at Rite Aid this week (and they just gave me a $2 off coupon last night… it’s a vicious cycle). I have a feeling I’m going to get a lot of wear out of this color in the coming months. It’s a great, affordable choice if you want to try the oxblood trend at little risk!

    Update 2014: This line of lipsticks has been discontinued by NYC, but you can still find this shade online at Amazon.

    BTW… who else is excited for Catching Fire? I’m giddy just thinking about it! Last year I waited hours in line for a good seat, but I think I’m going to wait until the Sunday of opening weekend to see it so I don’t have to deal with annoying people who talk in the theater. Those are the worst!


    1. Wow, that is the most beautiful color on you!! I am definitely going to pick up an NYC UltraMoist lip color the next time I’m out.

      • So after wearing this for a day, I found that you’ll definitely need a lip liner or lip balm underneath as it tends to slip into the lines of your lips. Also it stayed smoother for longer when I applied with a lip brush as opposed to with the stick itself. Still, for 99 cents I’m impressed and would buy more!

    2. Impressive pigment for under a dollar! I know exactly what you mean with the sales and coupons being a vicious cycle. I always find more to buy when I have a coupon and there is a sale going on.
