NYC New York Color New Year's Eve Makeup: #NYCBeautyPro December Challenge

Disclaimer: Product featured was provided for review.
Hey hey hey! Today I am back with my monthly New York Color #NYCBeautyPro Challenge. The December challenge is to create a look for New Year's Eve and the lips are the focus! To see what products I used, click......
For the lips, I used a brownish wine red Ultra Moist Lipstick in Mahogany ($2.99 CAD) topped with the Big Bold Plumping Lipgloss in "Big Is Beautiful" ($4.99). As the name suggests, the lipstick formulation is super rich and creamy. The color is very pigmented as well, and for $2.99 CAD? Yes, yes and yes!
For the eyes, I used the Liquid Eyeliner ($3.99 CAD) which features a thin brush tip. The formulation is incredibly dark and rich but the drying time is long and the wear isn't the best. For the cheeks I opted for a subtle bronzer called the Sun n Bronze Bronzing Powder in "Coney Island Glow"($5.99). The bronzer has two different colors, one shimmery champagne and another soft brown. The pigmentation is fairly sheer so it's easy to control how much you apply.
Finally, for the nails I opted for a milk chocolate brown New York Minute Quick Dry Nail Polish in "Park Avenue" ($1.99 CAD). The formulation is a tad runny but opaque in two coats.
Two coats with no top coat.
Here is a close-up of the final look, I am so in love with the lip color!
And there you have it, my New Year's Eve look for 2014/2015. How will you be celebrating New Years Eve this year? What look will you be sporting? Let me know in the comments below!
