As promised, here is my review of NYC’s Sweet Splash Gloss Sticks! These are from the Rooftop Party display and they are a new product. According to NYC’s facebook page, they are limited edition. They were $3.99 each at my CVS.
First: packaging. These are twist-up gloss sticks, which is good, since they’re far too soft to be able to sharpen. You can twist them up and back down again easily. They come shrinkwrapped (yay!) and have the color name printed on the plastic wrapping, but the name is unfortunately not printed anywhere on the actual permanent packaging – so you’ll need to label them yourself if you care about the name.
There are three colors available and I purchased all of them. They all have a mild fruity smell and feel somewhat slick, but not uncomfortably slippery. None have any sparkle or shimmer.
Mango Punch is a sheer peach – it doesn’t show up very well on me (it’s actually more noticeable in the photo than in person).
Pink Spark gives a sheer hint of pink – it’s a very natural and easy to wear color.
Revived Berry is a sheer berry – and is of course my favorite!
Note that unlike the Revlon Kissable Balm Stains, these do not leave a stain – they really are a lip gloss stick, just as advertised. If that’s what you’re looking for, I would recommend them – especially the pink and berry.
