I was lucky enough to receive these *NEW* City Proof Matte Long Lasting Blur Lip Color products from New York Color Canada! They are a new formula, and when I originally saw them I thought that they were felt tipped. However, don't let the sponge tip fool you. When you twist off the lid they actually have a small retractable crayon type tip one one end, with a blending sponge on the other end.
I have tried other products similar to this minus the blending sponge, and I found that I had to apply a sheer application otherwise they would look uneven or streaky. The sponge tip is a great way to smooth out the base creating an almost airbrushed effect. It enables you to layer as many times as you want to get your desired thickness and opaqueness. They also state that you can create ombre looks with them which I did not do here, but I did try it after reading more about them and it turned out great! I applied a light color all over my entire lips and then used a darker color on the other corners. I used to the sponge tip to blend both colors together. The sponge is not to firm and has quite a nice bounce to it so it is really easy to work with!
They also claim that the look will last "all night long." I can definitely vouch that it stains the lips and is long wearing. However, it is still transferable. If you eat or take a drink you will leave your mark. I found that when the product is initially applied it has a vibrant rich lipstick type finish, and throughout the day it sheers down to more of a thin matte stain. The color is still there, but again the lips do have a different finish.
These lip products currently retail for only about $4.99 at most Canadian retailers that cary New York Color Canada. If you are looking for a long lasting color, and are on a budget, I definitely think they are a steal. I don't own every color that they came out with, but I have provided lip swatches of the four colors they sent me so that you can see what they look like on the lips! All of the colors are also labeled below.
