When I first received the shade New York I was hesitant, as it had a very orange base, however it has become one of my favorite colors. Unfortunately, it comes off my lips all day long. It doesn't really feather, but I have to be very careful as it transfers easily on to whatever my lips touch. It also has a staining quality which means the color does last on my lips, but whatever it gets on, it is hard to remove. Oddly enough I feel like it comes off my lips all day where as a lipstick is usually gone within a couple hours. It is both a good thing and a very frustrating thing. I have a very love hate relationship with my New york but, I wear it multiple times a week.
