Who doesn't love a good (and affordable) lipstick? Well, this is what NYC New York Color has to offer with their new Get It All lipsticks range! Available in 12 highly pigmented shades, the formula is supposed to be creamy and long-lasting.

The formula is creamy and a bit thick, in a good way! It doesn't slide around, yet it's not sticky. They really offer intense pigmentation in one swipe! The shade #200 PINKtastic was a bit more sheer, but all the other shades were fully opaque. That's pretty impressive for a $6 lipstick!
I've been loving the slightly glossy finish! They weren't particularly hydrating, but they didn't feel drying on my lips either.
The staying power was great, the dark shades (#202 and #302) last more than 6 hours on me! I noticed some minimal feathering around the 4 hours mark with these two shades, but nothing a good lip pencil can't solve. The light shades (#101 and #200) last 3 hours on me.
Just a word of caution if you are sensitive to fragrance though, these lipsticks have a strong cherry scent. I love the scent but I think that it can be overpowering if you have a sensitive nose.
101 ExceptioNUDE is a mauvey nude with a creamy and slightly glossy finish.
MAC Satin Lipstick in Faux is slightly lighter, less mauve. BITE Beauty Amuse Bouche lipstick in Chai is darker and warmer, more brown. MAC Frost Lipstick in Angel is much lighter, less mauve. MAC Matte Lipstick in Nouvelle Vogue is brighter and pinker.
