N.Y.C. Blushable Creme Stick

I bought this around May and haven't been able to review until now... hehe~ :X
Product Review: N.Y.C. Blushable Creme Stick in #0150-05 Pink Flash (limited edition)

Where can you purchase this: drugstores, mass retailers, and online
Price: $3.99 for 0.28 oz/8g (I believe it's cheaper at CVS for $3.59, but not too sure on that and I had a discount. I got it for a lot cheaper).

Information on the website: Give a natural flush to your cheeks in one quick step! This lightweight formular blends effortlessly to provide sheer, all-over color as well as subtle, shimmering accents, contours and dynamic highlights to your cheeks.

My thoughts: I first heard about this on YouTube and it intrigued me. The makeup guru mentioned great things about this product. I knew I had to snatch one up when I heard about the limited edition one. My first initial reaction is the color of the packaging. How cute is the color! I have been into coral/peachy stuff including the packaging even though the blush is pink... lol~ :P The next thing I noticed is the blush doesn't go all the way down and you can swipe it with the plastic, clear top. If it went all the way down, it would be so much better... hehe~

I swatched the color on my hand and fell in love. It's so vibrant!
It reminds me of Barbie pink. I love it! :) I start off slow on my cheeks and build the color as I apply it. It's better to start light to brighter than brighter to light. ;)

As the days go on, I was pretty impressed the colored stayed on my cheeks. It might be because I have dry skin. I would think with oily skin the blush will wear off since it's cream.

The last thing that went through my head is would I reach for this blush often. In all honesty, this is my second stick blush. The first one I have from Smashbox and I have to admit I hardly reach for it. I don't know why since it would be easy since you can use your fingertips. :/ I have to admit I hardly reach for the N.Y.C. blush as well. I guess you can say I don't like the feeling of using my hands when it comes to applying blush. I need to change my mentality... lol~ :P

Pros:
* N.Y.C.; some products are good especially their lip tint in a tin.
* Pretty color packaging.
* Pretty color blush choices.
* Cream base; good for dry skin.

Cons:
* N.Y.C.; I tend to not like their products or hardly buy them.
* Hate the blush doesn't go all the way down.
* Cream base; wouldn't last long on oily skin.

Would I buy this again: Yes.

Thanks for this review! I've been eyeing this product but I absolutely can't allow me to buy it as I have way to much blushses (that I don't even use) already -_-

Such a pretty color! I've heard so much about these blush sticks. Good thins of course. ^.^ Yea, I have a few items that requires the use of my hand, but I find that I don't reach for them as often. Wonder why...hahah

You are a bad influence because of you I just left CVS with 2 of these blush sticks! LOL. Great review, thanks!

the color is really vibrant! I love using cream blush recently, they last longer than powder blush on me :D

I bought two N.Y.C creme sticks during a BOGO sale but still find myself reaching for my powder blush more so you're not alone. ^_^ Definitely need to change my mentality too!

(The event unfortunately ended already but I'll ask my friend for the URL. :) Good to hear your weekend went nicely! I was in Vegas :P )

I agree - even though I like the product, I don't really reach for it as often as I thought I would. It's probably because I like using cream blushes as base for my blush and since I'm rushing out the door every morning, it's an extra step that I don't need.

Hey girl, my friend says she doesn't have the URL b/c it was random. =\ Sorry! If I hear of another event, will let you know! =D
