NYC New York Color Smooth Skin BB Radiance Perfecting Powder Review & Swatches

New York Color Smooth Skin BB Radiance Perfecting Powder

NYC New York Color Smooth Skin BB Radiance Perfecting Powder ($3.99) just recently launched in two shades selections for Spring 2015 that will be available permanently at drugstores. I absolutely adore NYC New York Color Smooth Skin BB Creme and I thought that NYC New York Color Smooth Skin BB Radiance Perfecting Powder would be something nice to set it to in the Summer when the weather is warmer.

As you now I have drier skin and I rarely set my makeup with powder or wear powder foundations, etc…! However, in the Summer I do reach for powder more often than not. Since I do NYC’s BB Creme formula I thought paired up with this powder I could get a nice, sheer natural look that would wear all day as lord knows on a humid Manhattan day there’s no way the BB Creme along will stick around without setting with powder.

Let’s take a look!

wet n wild thrift store chic

The Wet n Wild Thrift Store Chic Coloricon Eyeshadow Palette ($4.99) is one of five, limited edition Wet n Wild Silver Lake Spring 2015 Coloricon Eyeshadow Palettes that recently launched at drugstores.

I have a love hate relationship with Coloricon Eyeshadow Palettes. The first round were amazing and to this day I cherish them but there have been many variations since that time and they can prove hit or miss but none the less I continue hauling them because when you do get a hit, well, it’s a cheap kinda thrill that makes your makeup day!

The Wet n Wild Thrift Store Chic Coloricon Eyeshadow Palette is one of those cheap thrills!
