Beautiful color is important, but keeping lips drenched with moisture is especially crucial in harsh winter weather.  In fact, I just discovered a great way to do both inexpensively with NYC New York Color's Applelicious Glossy Lip Balms that I got to try.

These little tubes are amazing finds for color delivery and hours of lip comfort.  The reason they hydrate exceptionally well is due to vitamin E, shea butter and two oils, jojoba and avocado.  

I was sent five of the ten available shades in this line for this review.  These included consist of: Applecious Pink (355), Apple Blossom (354), Garnet Gala  (358), Apple Plum Pie (359), and Chocolate Apple (352).

Each has color on the outside with a pale apple-shaped inner core stored with moisture.  Your first thought may be the color might be too sheer.  However, you would be mistaken because these shades can pass as a lipstick without disappointing you.  They also smell deliciously of an apple, which I liked as well.

Starting on the left is Applecious Pink (a gorgeous medium pink), then Garnet Gala (a bronze-red), Apple Blossom (a berry-pink), Chocolate Apple (a bronze with pink), and ending with Apple Plum Pie (a deep plum-wine) on the right.

You simply can't miss with these lip balms.  As to my favorite, how can you decide when they all are so pretty? 

They retail for $2.99 a piece.  The line also has Big Apple Red, Blushing Golden, Caramel Apple, and Pink Lady.  I am definitely picking up more on my next shopping trip.

I highly recommend stopping at the drug store or where you normally shop for NYC New York Color and load up on these Applelicious Glossy Lip Balms because your lips will thank you!
