NYC Cosmetics Review!

nyc color

Makeup and me are like two peas in a pod! I am addicted to any and all cosmetics! When I had the chance to review some of the great NYC cosmetics, I was thrilled! NYC is not only an affordable brand, but vibrant and easy to use for any diva!


The first product I want to talk about is the HD Trio Eye Shadow. The HD Trio Eye Shadow comes in so many great shades and combinations! The few that I tried, in order from left to right, were the Urban Spice palette, The Liberty Lilacs palette and Concrete Jungle palette. All three were spectacular at just $2.99 for one palette! The Urban Spice palette was my favorite of the three. I love the natural colors and they are gorgeous together! The Liberty Lilacs are also great with my green eyes!


The next product I had the chance to try were the Individual Eyes Custom Compact. These palettes   are $4.99 and are great for creating an eye look that is perfect for your eye color! My eyes are green so I got the Smokey Greens and Central Park for Green Eyes. (left to right) Both compacts come with four great shadows that are listed with the part of eye it should go on. Perfect for beginners or makeup newbies! Both compacts also come with a primer and illuminator! I loved the primer, it really works well. Not as good as Urban Decay, but for the price… a great addition!

The last few products I had the chance to try were the Sun N Bronze Powder in Fire Island Tan and the Automatic Eyeliner Pencils. The Eyeliner pencils were just OK. They seem to be a great price at $2.99 a pencil. However when I first opened the purple one, the eyeliner fell out of the casing and when I tried to put it on it really pulled my eyelids because it wasn’t very smooth. It really needed some hydration. I also think that they are not as pigmented as other liners I have used in the past.  The Sun N Bronze Powder however is remarkable! At just $4.99 I know I will be buying this bronzer again and again! Not that I will need to anytime soon, because this will last and last! The three tones in this bronzer really help to not diminish your face and make it one dimensional. I love that when I swirl the colors together I can get this gorgeous tone that really contours my face so well! I can’t wait to be able to use it more and more in the summer!

Over all, the NYC Products get a 4 out of 5 stars. They have a great value for what you get and they, for the most part, have great cosmetics! The only bad thing I tried were the eyeliners.. I would skip on those.
