Today's products are so new to the UK that I don't have any prices to hand but I wouldn't worry
as NYC is fairly budget friendly with nothing in the entire NYC collection being more expensive than £5.
Spring 2013 sees NYC launch Expert Wear Lip Colours, new shades of the City Mono Eyeshadows
and one of the chunkiest mascaras I have ever encountered thus far - NYC Big Bold Curl Mascara.
I was sent three of the new NYC Expert Wear Lip Colours and found them to be mostly well pigmented with the excpetion of the lighest shade - Candy Rush which gives more of a pearl finish than colour to the lips but the other two provide wonderful colour pay off with Air Kiss being a pretty close dupe for MAC's
Girl About Town for a fraction of the price.
The third shade I have is Red Rapture which is a pretty original red, it has blue undertones
but can translate slightly plum on the lips, very different to anything I own.
The NYC Expert Wear Lip Colour formula is light, creamy with a candy type scent and I found
the deeper shades to wear for just over two hours.
As mentioned two new shades of the City Mono Eyeshadows by NYC will launch very soon:
Pink Whisper - a light. metallic pearlescent pink that makes a great highlight shade and is very appropriate for the romantic trends we see every Spring.
The other shade is Guess Who? which is a matte black scattered with silver glitter and is not all that dissimilar to MAC's Blacktied only this is slightly weaker in pigmentation.
Truthfully NYC do lip products a little better than they do eyeshadows but if you use a decent primer
they are passable but with all make-up ranges some products are always better than others.
In terms of wear with a primer I find they crease around the 5 hour mark on my oily eye lids.
For £1.79 each it really is a case of you get what you pay for in this case.
Perhaps my favourite product from the new releases has to be the huge chunk of a mascara that is
NYC Big Bold Curl Mascara, in all honesty I am a little snobbish when it comes to mascara
and don't tend to buy that many drugstore mascaras as they often disappoint.
NYC Big Bold Curl Mascara despite appearing a little daunting due to it's huge wand is actually
a rather great mascara, not too wet nor dry, it lengthens and adds volume without smudging or smearing
throughout the day and reminds me of a typical Maybelline mascara only much cheaper.
NYC Spring 2013* will roll out nationwide in the coming weeks.
