I recently purchased these NYC Lip Sliders Tinted Lip Balm in Sugar Kiss and Sugar Coated at Wal-Mart for around $2.56. I’ve read so many reviews about these and decided to give them a try. I have heard that Sugar Coated is similar to MAC Cremesheen BoyBait, which is around $18. Knowing how much I love pink colours so I thought that I can’t go wrong with these.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Delivers a sheer pop of color with an intense gloss finish. Hydrating and conditioning formula with rich botanical oils & vitamins leaves lips extra soft. Sweet flavor makes this a yummy treat!

FOR BEST RESULT
Apply a thin layer of balm to lips as often as desired.

INGREDIENTS
Rich emollient oils and butters, infused with vitamins

WHY I LOVE THIS PRODUCT
Hydrating and conditioning formula protects lips and gives lips a sheer pop of color and intense shine. I can’t say that I’m absolutely in love with this product, but it’s decent for its price. However, I still like the MAC Cremesheen BoyBait better because the colour looks a lot richer and it has an applicator. I really don’t like to get my hands all messy and dirty from lip balm.

Naturally, I have really dark/red lips, so the Sugar Coated was hardly visible on me. However, the Sugar Kiss looked a lot better and it was a lot more buildable than the other colour. This product also have a very sweet taste, which I really like. It taste and smell like candy, which I really enjoy. The slider also looks really cool. Overall, I think it’s worth buying this product to give it a try. I’ve checked around 3 Wal-Marts around my area and most of them had already sold out of the Sugar Coated. I bought the last one that I could find. So if you want to try that shade specifically, either go quickly go to Wal-Mart or try a drug store instead.

RATING
Product (4/5) – Sugar Coated wasn’t visible on my lips.
Cost (5/5)
Ease of Use (4/5) – It would be a lot easier if it had an applicator. I hate using my fingers to apply lip products.
Packaging (5/5)

  • Thanks for visiting my blog ^__^

    This is perfect!! I was trying to find reviews of these two sliders all day yesterday and only ended up finding reviews and swatches for sugar coated. I also have naturally pigmented lips so I guess I’ll opt for the sugar kiss. Is it very pink though because it’s somewhat hard to pull of cool or frosty pinks with my skintone?

    And yayy, a fellow Canadian! I get a better sense of prices and availability of products whereas usually in reviews, I think something is such a bargain only to find the price goes up $5+ in Canadian stores.

    P.S. Sorry Sorry has been my favourite Korean song for I think the past 2 months and I still love it >.< *follows*

  • These clrs are soooo pretty!!! I love the packaging much!

  • Do you only prefer these colors over the other colors they have? CVS has a bogo sale so I wanna know if it’s worth it to try the other colors :)
