NYC Blushable Creme Sticks

Hey chicas!

Happy hump day! This is more of a rave than a review, well a little bit of both! Ever since I saw these 'blushable sticks' on YT, I have wanted them or more like craved them! I initially thought they only came in two colors. How would I have known that there are more? I have been to numerous Walgreens, CVS and Target throughout the entire Chicagoland and couldn't find a single one. I was getting frustrated (I know, getting frustrated because you can't find a blush is insane, but I am crazy when it comes to make up and even crazier when I can't find something I want! lol) and I even tweeted about it. Then my lovely friend who you may know as






Plaza Pink







This shade is pink but to be more specific I would say it's dusty rose type of color. I personally don't wear this layered with anything else. It's beautiful as it is.

South St. Shell









My thoughts and notes...




Considering the price you pay for these blushes, you get quite a bit of product, great color pay off and pigmentation in one sweep. Because of their creamy consistency, application and blending these are a breeze. While they do end up being sheer after blending, they are pretty buildable to your liking. I personally don't like sheer blushes that much, if I don't see some color on my cheek then what's the point of wearing it in the first place? (But that's just me) When it comes to finish, they are neither matte nor shimmery, so you get the best of both worlds and for that reason they give off a healthy and dewy glow to your cheeks! They are not sticky or greasy after drying, in fact they are pretty light after application. It takes about half a minute for them to dry, keep in mind they are creamy so you don't have to rush to blend them in. On my combination skin, I do have drier cheeks, they last a long time and even longer if I set them with powder blushes. These have quickly become my favorites. They are of very good quality being from the drugstore. I wish they came in more colors/shades though. I am sure they would have attracted  more people if they had a bigger color selection. As far as I know there are a total of 6 colors, the one I don't have is called Berry Newyorker. They also had two other LE shades called, Pink Flash and Wild Berry.

  1. I could never find those LE shades at any store. None of the CVS, ULTA OR RITE-AID had them...makes me wonder did they made only 100 of those??
    I love these creme sticks,...n wth this price tag...wow!

  11. @resham, I was going crazy looking for them! You're right, it feels like they only made a certain number of them or something! For some reason they are not sold online either, I checked Ulta's website but nope. I guess they will get to all the stores at one point but when, I have no idea!
    @Muhsine, they really are pretty! I'm sure you will get it in UK, if not I'll send you some! :)
    @NYCSh0paholic, I hope your ULTA will have them, you should not be deprived of these beauties!! :)
    @Andee Layne, thanks girlie! the first one is my favorite, so pretty! :)
    @Becky, yep they are all over the place! I saw them first on YT and wanted them ever since. Definitely get Plaza Pink! ;)
    @Caitlin, you lucky girl! I've wanted the LE ones too, but with my luck...lol not gonna happen!
    @TheStalling Danke! :) I love your blog too, just checked it now! NYC brand is even limited in the U.S., not all stores carry their products so I am sure it's even harder to find in Germany. But who knows, maybe you can find them online on ebay or amazon?
    @StacyNicole, thanks for letting me know! I never tried their lip products besides the tinted lip balm which I love! I'll check them out next time I'm at Target :)
    @Jackie, they are a hassle to find, I hear ya girl! Thanks for following, I hope you find them at your Ulta. They are pretty good products!
    @Cherokee, thanks so much girl :) I'm glad you enjoy my post and blog. I try to mix it up both because not everyone can afford high end products and also you don't have to spend a fortune for good products :)
