NYC is a brand that wasn’t really on my radar until earlier this year. Back in 2010 I discovered their nail polish and tried a few but as far as makeup goes I never gave the brand a second thought.
But then I tried the much talked about Sunny Bronzer. I fell in love instantly! It’s a perfect matte bronzer to use for contouring. Since I had such good luck with the bronzer I also gave their Smooth Skin Liquid Makeup a whirl. Again, I was impressed. It’s not an everyday foundation, and it wouldn’t be good for those with oily skin, but I have normal to dry skin and this is the perfect foundation for those light makeup days.
This week Rite Aid has all NYC cosmetics 40% off so I figured it was a perfect time to stock up on foundation and bronzer as well as try a couple new items. I picked up the Show Time volumizing mascara in Extreme Black. I’m a bit of a mascara snob (Clinqiue High Impact is my HG mascara) but I’m going out of town for Thanksgiving and wanted a less expensive mascara to take with me. I’m looking forward to giving this one a try!
The only other items I picked up were 2 nail polishes from the NYC Long Wearing Nail Enamel line; Starry Silver and Broadway Burgundy. Both look super pretty in the bottle!
It’s worth pointing out that all of this cost me a whopping $7.15 thanks to Rite Aid’s 40% off sale. If you’ve yet to try anything from NYC this week is a good time to give it a shot!
I’d love to know if you have any favorite NYC products. I’m always up to trying new beauty products
