Last-Minute Luxury Gifts for Her

We are getting down to the wire here, with just a little over a week before Christmas. It can be hard to find the perfect gift, but it doesn't have to be. With online shopping, you can find some really great items she'll love, and ones that  don't cost a fortune either.

Etsy can be a great place to find something beautiful and unique. Some items on Etsy have a longer processing time, but some, particularly the jewelry and candle shops, tend to have things ready-made. Thus you're bound to find some very beautiful and unique gifts. You just have to check the deadline for Christmas in each shop's announcements. Some will even work with you on rush orders, so it never hurts to ask!

NYC Big Bold Plumping Lip Gloss Review


I'm a sucker for lip gloss; you could find one in every purse I own. But sometimes poor quality in the end can make a less expensive product not worth the money at all. That is definitely the case with the NYC Big Bold Plumping Lip Gloss.

Don't get me wrong, NYC New York Color is a budget makeup brand that I have liked for a very long time, hence I was willing to give their new plumping lips gloss a try. The slightly shimmery gloss is an average between $3.00 and $4.00 a piece and comes in several pretty shades of pink.


PROs
  • pretty colors
  • nice shimmer
  • affordable 
CONs
  • not a good plumping lip gloss
  • doesn't stay on very long (despite that being a promise in the product description)

BOTTOM LINE

It's a nice cheap lips gloss, so if you really love the colors, go ahead and pick up one or two. It's a nice lip gloss to keep in your summer purse for a quick touch up. Though as you can see in the before and after pics, this lip gloss simply does not plump one little bit. I'm a firm believer that a product above anything should live up to its name; if a plumping gloss has the words "Big Bold" in the name, it had better plump at least a little bit.

If this were someone's first encounter with the NYC New York Color makeup brand, I'd bet they wouldn't become a returning customer. Though I have to say this is one super-affordable makeup brand that I have used and been happy with in the past. I love their Smooth Skin facial powder and especially both their quick-dry and long-wearing nail polishes.

Have you used any plumping lip products that worked really well? Please let me know in the comments below.
