NYC New York Color Applelicious Glossy Lip Balm - Influenster Product Review

**received complimentary for testing purposes

I'm ready to do my first review for a product that came in my Influenster Spring VoxBox!  I'm going to be reviewing the NYC Applelicious Glossy Lip Balm.  The color I received is Big Apple Red.  This is a product that I've seen in stores, but I hadn't gotten around to trying it yet.  But that's all changed now.  I've been wearing this lip balm every day I've left the house since receiving it.

right side, NYC Applelicious Glossy Lip Balm in Big Apple Red - built up to about 4 layers

Essential facts (from Influenster's page):
"Hydrating core is formulated with a trio of Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil, and Avocado Oil • Lightweight lip balm keeps lips kissable with soft shine and come-hither color"

My thoughts ~
I'm in love with this product! It smells like an apple (but it's definitely not overwhelmingly so); I didn't notice any taste, but I'm not one to lick my lips, especially once a product is applied...  It feels great on and it gives a pretty, soft layer of color.  I find this to be moisturizing and it does look glossy, especially when first applied.  I don't find this to be sticky at all.  This does have to be built up to get a more opaque look.  
left swatch is 1 swipe; right swatch is 4 swipes

I noticed I can get about 2-3 hours of color, but even after the color disappears, my lips still feel hydrated.  If worn sheer, it fades away evenly.  But if you build it up (about 4 layers) to get the color to show well, it does leave a bit of a ring around the lips when the color fades.

This retails for approximately $3 where ever NYC is sold.  There are currently 10 colors in this line (and I'll probably be picking up more of them).  You can see NYC's full line up of products at their site: New York Color.

Have you tried a Applelicious Glossy Lip Balm?  Did you like like it?
