Today, I bring to you my most favorite lipstick from the drugstore - Buff by NYC. The day I bought this lipstick and tried it, I fell in love. I couldn't stop looking at the mirror. It was the color I was looking for high and low across the ocean....LOL!

Seriously, it is a lovely color and has multiple uses. On its own its a wonderful sheer coral/peach color with a hint of gold. Puuuuuuuuurrfect for the summer. It is almost always out of stock at my local CVS and the reviewers at MUA also love it!

I haven't told you the best part yet....it costs only 99 cents!!!!! Not even a dollar !!!!!!!!!!!!
Having told you all the good stuff , I must also tell you that the staying power is not the greatest. It stays put on very well for at least 2 to 3 hours. But then I would say, this is the deal with any sheer lipstick...be it Dior or NYC.

Please go try this on. It looks great even when layered over any other brown/ pink/ red shade....very versatile! I usually layer it over my Estee Lauder lipstick in Dream and it gives me a beautiful juicy brown color.

Here are the pics below. Somehow, my camera is not picking up the coral color well, but it does look peachy corally on my lips.

If you do buy it, lemme know how you like it. I hope you like it just as much as I do!

It's a gorgeous lipstick, but then again, you have beautiful full lips!
You didn't mention what lipstick it was...or are you trying to keep us guessing :)

Hey girl, the colour's really pretty on you, reminds of sweet pink roses. The best thing's the price, isn't it? Nothing beats less than dollar, and anyway, we need to reapply anytime we eat/drink, so just another excuse to whip it out and reapply!

Hey Girl! Thank you! Yeah for a dollar we really dont mind reapplying 3 or 4 times, do we? About my quirks, I thought out 6 last night, but now I forgot 3 of em...I even made an acronym of SSHHC ( i forgot the 6th one by the time I made the acronym ...LOL!)
Now I dont remember what the second S is :(
