N.Y.C. Color Cosmetics Blushable Creme Stick in Gold Radiance Review

July 9, 2011

 I went to Rite-Aid recently and was excited to see that they had the new limited edition N.Y.C. Bronze Bliss collection. Once I saw Nouveau Cheap review this blushable creme stick, I knew I wanted to find it. This is definitely a highlighter because it's so light and has lots of shimmer. I've been looking for a new highlighter, so I was very curious to see how it would work for me. 
This is how the Blushable Creme Sticks are described: 
This lightweight formula provides sheer, all-over color as well as subtle, shimmering accents, and dynamic highlights to your cheeks. Quick, on-the-go and extremely easy to apply.
Here is a swatch of Gold Radiance:
It was kind of hard to capture it on my cheeks, but you can see some of it here:
Excuse my eyes, but if you make the pic bigger you can see the gold shimmer :)
My Review:
I'm actually really happy with purchasing this. I thought it would be a big glittery mess all over my face. But it wasn't, which was great. I applied it to my cheeks and blended it in with my fingers. Super easy to use and gave a really healthy glow to my skin. I feel like a few swipes of this on each cheek is enough. You could definitely go "shimmer overboard" with this, so just be mindful of that. It's only going to give you shimmer though. If you want something with color or not a lot of shimmer, you should skip this for sure. Overall, I really like it. I will be wearing this most of the Summer now. For the price, $3.99, it's a great product.

Have you tried this or any products from the N.Y.C. limited edition collection?

  1. great review. I think this looks really nice. Subtle yet pretty, Thanks for sharing. http://pandorasssbox.blogspot.com/

  2. I really cant see it :(

  3. Aw, sorry about that. I know, it was super hard to photograph. It's more noticeable in person.

  4. I can't find it in Yuma, AZ yet :(

  5. I like the shade and it completely matches your skin tone! I just had my diamond peel. Is this product safe for me to use?
