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!

Does Your Makeup Have An Inappropriate Name?

Inappropriatemakeup names

I was reading an interesting article today referencing Kat Von D’s Lipstick being named Underage Red as causing some controversy and uproar. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen makeup dubbed with inappropriate names.

Does your makeup have an inappropriate name? I know I have several Urban Decay Eyeshadow that make laugh slightly like a teenage boy, ahem…Gash. And of course, we have NARS Orgasm and Deep Throat…

Of course, we’ve had collections that have really crossed the line like MAC Rodarte Collection from Fall 2010.

Names such as Underage Red are a bit of a trigger and they raise questions and arguments and of course, they cause a bit of controversy! Actually the name didn’t shock but the fact that just now this is an issue as that shade has been around for a while, why is it suddenly becoming a hot topic?
