NYC New York Color Liquid Lipshine & Goody QuikStyle Brush Reviews

Yesterday, I posted a Quaker Real Medleys Oatmeal product review as part of a box I received from Influenster. Today I want to talk a little bit about two more items from that box (pictured below): NYC New York Color Liquid Lipshine and the Goody QuikStyle Brush.

I should mention that these items were sent to me free of charge in exchange for my review.

NYC New York Color Liquid Lipshine (Estimated cost: $2.49)

“Keep your lips soft as ever with the NYC New York Color Liquid Lipshine. It’s pure pigment ingredients create a 3-D gloss effect while Vitamin E provides shine and moisture. The non-sticky formula creates the ultimate creamy and soft textured feel. Available in 10 on-trend shades from neutral nudes, to berries & fuschias.”

I will be the first to admit that before I tried this product I would never, not in a million years, have picked this color for myself. I’ve also never tried NYC New York Color products. But guess what?! I love this product and I really dig the color. Here’s what my lips look like naturally (sans makeup):

And here’s what the shade looks like on my lips:

Aside from my lips being glossy, you really can’t tell that I’m wearing color (which is, perhaps, what I like best about it). It doesn’t feel heavy, it really isn’t sticky, and it goes on smooth. At under three dollars per tube, it’s a product I know I can afford to use every day and I definitely recommend it if you’re in search of something new.

The next product I want to talk about from my review box is the half round style brush I got.

Goody QuikStyle Brush Half Round Styler (estimated cost: $11.99)

“Once again, Goody brings innovation to your hair routine! Go from wet to beautifully styled hair faster than ever! Super absorbent microfiber bristles removes up to 30% of water as you style. It’s like a towel and a brush in one.”

Goody QuikStyle Brush

Allow me to admit something to you: I’m somewhat ignorant when it comes to fashion knowledge. Until I received this in the mail, I honestly had no idea that half round brushes existed. Imagine my excitement when I took it out of the package. This brush is cool and unlike my other round brushes (which is what I normally use to style my hair), I really like the flat back that doesn’t get hot as I’m using it with a blow dryer.

These aren’t the best before and after pictures (forgive me?) but here’s what my hair looked like before I used the product:

Dry Hair

The brush really does help to dry your hair more quickly and, because of the design, I didn’t have to spend as much time flat ironing it after I was done (which was an added bonus). Overall, I really like this brush. A lot so if you’re in the market for a new one…why not give it a try?

On Saturday, I’ll go over the final three products from the Influenster HolidayVox Box. Until then…
