N.Y.C. New York Color Blushable Creme Stick Review and Swatches
N.Y.C. New York Color Summer Collection 2010 should be hitting your drugstores shortly. Let me tell you, they have a killer new gloss (tell ya about it soon), that you so NEED to get.
The collection also includes new Color Blushable Creme Sticks.
What Is It?
A cream stick blush for quickie application on the go!
Well…for $3.99 you can’t complain too much about these little guys. They have a super creamy formula, are incredibly pigmented, and currently have won my sister’s heart over (she loves these things with a passion).
The formula is quite creamy making it a breeze to blend without feeling greasy or sticky. The twist up design makes them a snap to tote around with as you can twist quickly, apply, and go.
I tried four shades which are Plaza Pink (Nude Peach), Mauvin’ Uptown (Bronzy Mauve), South Street Seashell (Reddish Tan), and Urban Spice (Beige Bronz-y Brown).
The newer shades that I tried aren’t too flattering on my skin tone. My sister is considerably darker than I am and she likes how pigmented these look on her face but on me they come across as very muddy even Plaza Pink which is a nude peach casts a strange glow on my face.
Who Might Like Them?
- Clinique Blushwear Cream Stick users!
- Anyone who wants a super cheap blendable cream blush that’s pigmented and cheap!
- Anyone who likes deeper, richer shades of color blush.
Who Might Not Like Them?
- Fairer skin types may find they apply a bit too muddy.
I didn’t love these to be honest as the shades just aren’t great for me but maybe with a release of more flattering colors I might consider looking at them again in the future. These have gotten some serious raves on MUA so obviously alot of folks are lovin’ them so they may be worth a look at during your next drugstore trip.
