Review: N.Y.C. Lip Sliders "Sugar Collection"

Today at the market I spotted these darling little tins. I was going to buy just 1 but I landed up leaving with 5! They were $2.99 each and I just adore them!

So the packaging :) A cute .32oz slide-tin. There’s a handy dandy clear plastic “window” on the cover, allowing you to see inside at the color of the tinted balm. Slides easily, closes securely (some slide-tins don’t close well). The “N.Y.C. New York Color” logo is embossed on the lid underneath the window, and a label on the bottom lists the ingredients. All of them are a very pretty shade of purple.

Not a lot of people like these because you may have to stick your finger in for application. I throw them in my purse and I have a travel lip brush... so that's what I use to apply the balm. The formula is fairly thick, it’ll last awhile, about two hours or so. Just like any other balm it all depends on if you decide to eat or drink.... It is thick when taking from the tin but smooths out on the lips nicely.

They are a bit sheer but they are labeled as "tints" Thats just what they do add a tint to the lips :)

All of the tins carry the same smell,sweet,like sugar.All of the colors have "sugar" in the name of them. Sugar Coated, Sugar Angel, Sugar Kiss, Sugar Baby, Sugar Fairy, Sugar Rush... See the pattern?! The only one I don't have is Sugar Rush :( Hopefully I'll find it some place.
