So the pic above is todays FOTD (more pics of it down the page) and its created using 2 new N.Y.C (New York Color) products, it was quite warm today and I was just having a day out shopping so didn't want to be too overdone, anyway the products - First is this eyeshadow quad which is shade 'LEXINGTON LUXURY' a natural smokey set of colours, It has a handy little sheet to tell you which colour is for doing what with as you can see -
The colours are very pigmented (swatched with no primer and one swipe) for a bargain brand like NYC and I think I will get alot of wear out of this, they last quite a while even without primer and I definatley want to pick up some more shades the little quad is perfect for shoving in your bag on a night out and you can create different looks with it, I love the highlight (last swatch) and all over lid colour (first swatch) especially, these were swatched just with my finger and no base. These are available in Superdrug currentley reduced from £4.09 to £2.99.
Next up is this NYC lip slider in 'Sugar Kiss' I wanted something I could use as a lipbalm but with a tint so it's not too plain and these are quite similar to Sleek's 'Pout Polish' but they are abit stickier, I do love these though they are very sheer and im guessing most shades are like this but they do tone down quite red lips and give a nice subtle bit of colour, they smell soooo nice just like sugar and sweets plus they are really moistourising and good for just applying in between lipstick applications to keep lips looking glossy and nice these RRP at around £2.99 also.
Whos tried these or what other NYC products do you rate apparentley theres some NYC products and bronzer in poundland (UK) so im going to hunt them down!
