I Love NYC Cosmetics (or New York Colour) for two rather non cosmetic related reasons
1. The very first time that I tried NYC Cosmetics was in 1999 in New York City (with Redser the Half) this is also the visit where we went to see Footloose the Musical (oh yes we did) the whole trip was wonderful and NYC Cosmetics will always remind me of New York (and Footloose)
2. The Liquid Lipshine tastes like sweets
Last week we had the pleasure of being invited to a showcase of NYC Cosmetics Autumn launches (and to celebrate the fact that NYC is now available in Penney's) as you can probably tell I have a real soft spot for NYC Cosmetics and just to make the spot softer (that sounds wrong doesn't it) all the products are under €4.00 (Four Euro... four hundred cents...you get the drift).
The lovely ladies that are in charge of NYC here in Ireland are pretty "Awesome" (I am being American in honour of NYC) they are really excited about the brand and that helps us the consumer because they strive to get us the best products available from the brand. Some of the new launches are only available in America and Ireland, they know that if they love the products so will we. I count the lovely Fiona personally responsible for bringing the Blushable Creme Sticks to our shores.
Sarah Jane Wai O'Flynn was on hand to talk us through some of the looks that she created with the new products and also chatted away giving us tips and tricks and telling us her favourite products. The models (who are two gorgeous girls from Fade Street) are wearing clothes from Penney's and how amazing do they look.
The always fabulous Art Donatella please if you have not checked out her Black Swan look check it out here it is amazing, Paula from Cornflakegirls Musings (check her out here) and moi.
Next up is our Irish exclusive. The girls fought hard to get this product on our shores and it is genius... NYC Individuals eyes Custom Compact. The compact have four eye shadows, an eye primer and a highlighter. Isn't it brill? Makeup hoarders like myself will have a separate primer and highlighter but I think it is genius that they are included in these palettes bringing a perfect face to the masses. The palettes are also set out in shades that complement different eye colours (green eye palette, blue eye palette). I think you will agree shows that NYC are geniuses that will one day take over the world.
NYC Individual Eyes Custom Compacts are available in 3 colour combos (Union Square (Brown Eyes), Central Park (Green Eyes), Bryant Park (Blue Eyes) priced at €3.99. Don't worry the Beauty Police won't come and get you if you have blue eyes and want a brown eyed palette, the colours are universally flattering -they are just taking the guess work out- (besides I have been chased by the Beauty Police on a number of occasions and like Zombies they have no upper body strength so if you climb onto the top of beauty stands you can escape them)
I will be keeping my favourite for last, its no secret that I have been yearning for the Blushable Creme Sticks (read about it here) I love this product it does exactly what it says on the tube, If you have oily skin do not worry because the sticks are oil-free which dries down to a silky powder finish with Vitamins A, C and E. The colours are light and build able but in my opinion they are more than just a blush, they give a highlighted glow to the cheeks. Beautifully complex cheeks in just one swipe.NYC Blushable Creme Stick is available in two shades (Plaza Pink, Big Apple Blush) priced at €3.49
All products available mid October 2011 from selected pharmacies and department stores nationwide. I highly recommend checking them out.
