NYC New York Color 16H Lip Stain Swatch And Review

 Hi y'all! Today I have something a little different for you. I'm not really a make up blogger, so I have no idea how to really do these, but I was offered to try these out by NYC New York Color and I couldn't turn them down. Maybe if this turns out, I could do these more often, but lets not get too ahead of ourselves just yet, haha. 

 I was sent three of the NYC 16H Lip Stains and I really like the colors of these that I got. I might actually use them quite a bit whenever I actually wear make up. This is what the lip stains look like without the lid, it's like a little lip marker. The tips are pretty stiff but after using them a couple times they loosen up. So if you have these and don't like te stiffness of the tip, just use them a few more times and it'll soften up. 

 Arm Swatches. THe swatch part is the part I'm not too sure about so hopefully these look okay. These are listed from left-right.
Rock On Ruby, Persistent Pink, and Unstoppable Red

And now we're gonna see some lip swatches
The first one is Persistent Pink, which is a much more subtle color than the other two. Keep in mind that these color may be different depending on the natural color of your lips as they're slightly sheer. Some more so than others it seems. This one in particular looked a lot different on the lip than I expected. But I really like it! It went on easy, and this is my first experience with a stain so I don't know if all of them are the same, but with this one, when it goes one, you have to wait a few seconds for it to dry and kind of set. 
This one is Rock On Ruby which is a red on the lips. It looks like a darker red in the tube and on the arm swatch, but on my lips it was a much more true red and i loved it! I really think it was the perfect red for me, which I've been looking for for a LONG time. I'm not even kidding. 
Last but not least we have Unstoppable Red, which in the tube looks much more like a coral-y orange-y pinkish red color but on the lip it's just a straight up pink. I really like the color of it and the color pay off of it, but it's definitely much different than I was expecting. 

I have no idea on the wear of all of these as I didn't test that, I just put them on and wiped them right back off to get the swatches. They did clean off easily enough though, much easier than some lipsticks I've tried, and they don't smear around all over your face while you're trying to clean them off like some lipsticks can, either. I really like these over all though. and hope you enjoyed this post! 

**These were sent to me free of charge in exchange for my honest review**
