New York Color Expert Last Lipstick in Peach Fizz

I pick up one of these just to try a new shade every now and again. The last time I was in the store looking for them I couldn't find them-until I realized they changed the packaging. And they did a great job. This packaging looks so much better than the old packaging.

New York Color claims:

You’ll find perfect plummy shades standing alongside true reds, next to creamy peaches. There’s one here for every look, outfit and situation you could dream of.
The all-new Expert Last Lipstick . Who knew you could feel this way about a lipstick?

I keep buying these because of the price- who can beat $1.99 for a lip color? 

So like I said I am really digging the new packaging. I'm all for a little improvement. They seemed to have kept a lot of the same colors as the other line which is pretty cool. 

Another thing I noticed is they changed the scent on these. I used to really hate the chemical scent these had. The one I have is more fruity and doesn't seem to dry my lips as much. Go NYC. 

Anyway, I just grabbed the first color in the display an
d then when I was checking out I had second thoughts. It really didn't look like a color that could suit my skin tone. But I like a challenge so I took it home with me anyway.

The actual color is a super pale pink with a little peach in it. It has a metallic finish which I like because it makes some colors not as intimidating as they could be. 

This particular color is wearable for me-if I use it with lip liner. 

One thing I notice is it can go on a little streaky but smacking my lips together seems to help.

As for lasting power, I think they are average. But I can't complain too much because of the price. 

Overall I like it. It was good for trying a new shade that I otherwise would not have bought. I think it would suit women with pale skin the best though.
