N.Y.C. City Sweets LE Extended Wear Lip Gloss in Tangerine Crush

N.Y.C. is really hitting it out of the park with me as far as their lip glosses go!  I saw the City Sweets Limited Edition display at my Rite Aid and everything in it was 50% off, so I picked up the Extended Wear Lip Gloss in Tangerine Crush. 

Here is a shot of the display from N.Y.C's Facebook page.  I'm a sucker for coral, and the ingredients in this drug store brand lip gloss actually looked pretty good - Kokum butter, jojoba oil, grapefruit, vitamins A and E.

These claim to wear up to 8 hours, condition your lips, have high color and shine, and not be sticky.  Nothing wears for 8 hours on me, but Tangerine Crush did last a good 3-4 hours.  I'm constantly sipping on a drink or eating every 3-4 hours, so that's about the duration of anything on my lips.  

Also a plus, my lips did feel hydrated and comfortable without an overly sticky texture.  These do have some tackiness, but nothing excessive.  As far as color payoff, Tangerine Crush is more of a sheer coral gloss with no sparkles, just a wash of color.  

I believe the regular retail was $3.49 at Rite Aid, so I paid $1.75.  Steal!  I'm going to have to look more closely at the two other LE shades, Nude at Night (light bronze) and Always Sweet (pink), if any are still available.
