NY Bae Lipstick, Creamy Matte – Review and Swatches

Hello Everyone

If you want to experiment with a wide variety of lip colours which are affordable and would give good results, then you should give a try to these lipsticks. I am reviewing the very affordable lipstick from NY Bae, which is available on Purplle. I have 2 of the shades.

  1.        Tangarine at Time square 6.
  2.        Manhattan Maiden 12.

Rs. 125 for 4.2 grams of product. Paying Rs. 125 for 4.2 grams of product is quite a deal.

It comes in a unique black coloured packaging and NY bae is mentioned in silver coloured. It has got a sturdy packaging, meaning it is not of low quality plastic. It has got some part of the cap transparent so that you can easily identify the shade.

It has got a creamy finish. It does not give a super dry matte finish. It is more of a butter lipstick. It gives a gloss like finish, as can be seen in the lip swatches.

The shade code and the shade name is also mentioned at the bottom of the lipstick.

This is how the hand swatch looks like:
1) The Tangarine At Times Square 6 : it is a beautiful orange shade, in the below image I had to rub it multiple times to get the opacity. Else it is a very light shade.

2) Manhattan Maiden 12: It is a pink shade, which is ideal for daily use, may it be college or work. It is more pigmented then the orange shade.

This is how the lipstick looks on my lips:

What is my opinion about NY Bae Lipstick, Creamy Matte: 
First I was hesitant in buying the lipsticks because I never heard the brand name. Then I thought why not give it a try, since the lipstick were very affordable RS. 125 only and on top there was even further discount and I got the lipstick for Rs. 99 only. So I went ahead and got these 2 shades. On the site, The orange shade looked extremely pigmented, creamy and gorgeous, but when I got I had to swipe it multiple times to get the opacity, but however it does not look the same as that on the site. The image on the site is a little deceptive.

But the Manhattan Maiden i.e. the pink shade is far more pigmented then the previous shade. You get the opacity with 2 swipes and it is a daily use colour.

The ingredient list is not mentioned on the product, nor it comes with a box, so basically no claims mentioned on the lipstick. But on the site the product claims the following
Benefits: Intense Pigmentation, High Color Payoff, Waterproof, Transfer Resistant, Fuller Lips, Consistent Shade
But it is not true all the claims. Basically high color payoff is not true to all shades, but for the price paid, I feel quite justified.


  • It is the most affordable lipstick only for Rs. 125, and there be further discounts on the site.
  • For this price range it has impressive staying power of around 3-4 plus hours.
  • The Manhattan Maiden i.e. the pink shade, leaves a beautiful stain when it starts fading.
  • It does not transfer like crazy.
  • Colour identification is quite easy because of its see through cover.
  • Large number of shade choice available
  • Glides on smoothly


  • Ingredients list not mentioned.
  • The Tangarine colour requires multiple swipes for it to become opaque
  • These lipsticks  do not survive meals.

Overall great product for the price. It has a variety of shades available , should definitely give a try. I would try other products like the lip liner etc from this brand.
