The Two Sides of NYC’s The Rock A Fellas Lipstick
There are two sides to NYC’s The Rock A Fellas lipstick. Literally. The lipstick is 2-in-1 lip colour with one side featuring a light coral pink and the other a brighter and bold coral pink. You can even mix the two to create a third colour. Guess which side I liked best?
I like the versatility of a 2-in-1 lipstick. It makes it convenient for packing and it’s actually quite economical to get such variety in one tube. The NYC 2-in-1s are priced under $5, which is definitely a bargain if you’re looking for one.
I haven’t tried any lipsticks in this price point before and I found both positive and negative points.
On the negative side, it smells like cheap makeup you played with as a kid, almost like plastic.
As for application, this does not apply that smoothly. It goes on kind of streaky at first. You have to swipe a few times to get this on evenly.
If you can get past these two things, you will find its saving grace. The colour. Very very beautiful. When I put on the brighter side, I was in love with how the colour added such brightness to my face.
I’m thinking this might be a lipstick to try if you want to venture into brighter lipsticks and don’t want to pay big bucks.
How do you feel about price points and makeup?
