N.Y.C. New York Color’s super pretty palettes

Brands like N.Y.C. New York Color are reasons why I love drugstore beauty buys. Wait for it…

Yes, I know. Let’s all sigh in admiration together. These darling limited-edition for Fall 2010 palettes are just too cute. The question is, how do they show up on brown skin? And just how much do they cost? We know N.Y.C. New York Color is an affordable brand, but are these kids overpriced?

Brown and Blushin’ Series: N.Y.C. Chroma Face Glow


Lately I’ve been all over highlighters. For the longest I didn’t even know what a “highlighter” was. I would constantly annoy fellow beauty blogger/buddy Kia with the “What’s a highlighter again?” question.

I get it! Highlighters add a little “pop” to the cheeks. More specifically, N.Y.C. New York Color says that their Chroma Face glow is a “luxurious velvet-soft powder with a metallic finish that smoothes on to highlight cheeks, brows, chin and forehead”. This product comes from the Metro Metals collection. Ohhh, loves the name!

I have been finding myself rocking N.Y.C.’s Chroma Face glow in Sunset just about every day. I love how it gives me a touch of definition without adding a bunch of heavy make-up on my face. I can wear this over concealer for a flawless look! I don’t even feel like I have to wear blush! Which is shocking since I have this crazy love affair with blush. Look at the marbleized goodness…

Here I am wearing it as a highlighter…


And the best part?

It’s only $4.99. *does the bankhead bounce* Aww yeah….that’s ridiculously affordable! And I give the staying power a thumbs up too. N.Y.C. has been impressing me a lot lately. Have you tried this product? Interested in trying? I think you should….run to your local Rite-Aid, Walgreens, Target, Wal-Mart, CVS or Longs, like….now. I would say that this product is a fantastic dupe to MAC’s MSFs…..which will run you $25.

Stay beautiful, fam!
