NYC Blushable Creme Sticks (Makeup excitement that gives you Heart Failure)

The Internet can be a weird and wonderful place. Last week when I had a chest infection my friend decided to diagnose me using her iPhone, symptoms she asked... terrible cough, temperature, feel generally crap I replied.  Up came the result "Heart Failure".... OK Internet lesson learned never ever look up symptoms of an illness on the Internet.  Besides the fact the Internet can be the Harold Shipman of diagnosis it can in fairness lead you to some brilliant finds.
Last summer NYC Cosmetics launched Blushable Creme Sticks. I was obsessed, to me they basically looked like Nars Multiples but at a fraction of the cost. I Love Nars Multiples, they are soft and pigmented creme blushes in a stick that are convenient to use and leave the prettiest colour but since they are about €42.00 each I wouldn't be rushing out every week to buy one. NYC Blushable Creme Sticks have been raved about on YouTube and on blogs since their release.  They get nothing but good reviews; they are said to be soft and creamy (not like Catrice's version which is lumpy and inconsistent). I was going mad to try them out.  They are always on must have "drug store" lists. Unfortunately they were not released on this side of the Atlantic (why companies do this is beyond me).  Cue pouting by Mags.  I was going to pick them up from Ebay but I resisted (but still browsed Ebay frequently for them).  This however is not a sad story as I recently discovered that NYC are launching the Creme Sticks in Ireland and the UK. To make this news even better NYC cosmetics are all under a fiver (A FIVER I shout).     The Blushable Creme Sticks will be released in or around October and I am excited (are we there yet? are we there yet?) I wish NYC could have released these for the summer (ahem cause we have had a wonderful summer) because they will be perfect for the summer.

The shade I really want to try is called Plaza Pink isn't it pretty.
