Now, I am going to say something here that might sound a little snooty, but I am going to come clean and admit that when I went to the NICKA K New York website and saw their lipsticks retailed from $1.49 - $4.99, my expectations for this lipstick were pretty low. The NICKA K New York Hydro Lipstick in Daring is on their higher end at $4.99, but my mind still screamed "watch out for bad cheap lipstick!" Fortunately for me though, that was not the case at all!
While this lipstick looks a little weird and bumpy in the tube because mine melted in my mailbox, it feels amazingggggg on! I swear this glides on like a super premium lip balm, but this lipstick still has a ton of pigment. The color is gorgeous, and while it did transfer onto my coffee cup, I didn't mind reapplying after awhile because the NICKA K New York Hydro Lipstick feels so good to put on! I believe this is because the lipstick is formulated with Jojoba Oil. It's also paraben free.
I am pretty sad I had some meltage on mine, because I honestly would love to order more of 24 available shades of this lipstick! I've got my eye on "Euphoria" (the one circled in red) and pretty much all of the bright pinks.
