This is the first New York Color (NYC) product that I'm trying. This color wheel is available in more colors. I bought the 723A Pink Cheek Glow, they also have 722 Translucent Highlighter Glow, 724 All Over Bronze Glow and the 725 Rose Glow. The one that I bought rather looks like a blush than a face powder to me xD.
Description on the packaging
Accents cheeks with a rosy glow and helps to reduce shine. Oil absorbing. Fragrance free. TO USE: Apply with brush and blend. Wear alone or over make-up.
The packaging looks simple, but still nice. One thing that I don't like is the cap. The cap can easily go off when you have this in your makeup bag =.=".
One face powder costs €4,99 in The Netherlands. I don't think it's expensive, it's affordable ;). (Net Wt. 0.32 oz/ 9.0 g.)
It stayed on my cheeks for 4-5 hours or so.
Awesome pattern ^^. I like the cool mosaic pattern on this face powder, so that's the main reason why I bought it ^__^. Besides, it also has a bit shimmer on it, but that's not noticeable when it's on your cheeks.
This color wheel has 4 different colors. When you swirl your brush on it, you will combine the colors and notice a dusty rose pink color.
I swatched the 4 colors without a base. Number 2 and 4 are very pigmented. Number 1 and 3 is less pigmented than the rest.
In the picture below you will see the colors combined. I applied a base beforehand, otherwise you wouldn't be able to see the color in the picture. It's easy to apply and easy to blend. The color is a bit too pink to me, but it looks ok when I apply a very very sheer layer on my cheeks ^^. I think that it will be more suitable for people with a darker skin tone. I look like a doll with very pink cheeks if I apply too much xD lol I'm too pale for this color.
- Affordable price
- Lovely pattern
- Wear time is quite long
- Easy to blend
- NYC doesn't tests on animals
- Too pink on my pale skin
- Cap can go off easily
Overall I think it's a good blush for its price. I wouldn't recommend this blush to people with a pale skin like me though >.<".
