N.Y.C. Sun Soaked Collection for Summer 2010 Review

So, yesterday I went to the Rite Aid 6 blocks away from me (I have one 2 blocks away from me) because they were having a BOGO on Revlon lippies because they just opened. I checked out all the new displays and I’ve got to say that I love what I’m seeing. Sinful colors and Wet ‘n’ Wild came out with fall collections for nail polishes. They polishes were perfect for Halloween and for the fall. I was going to take pictures of the displays, but I just wanted to concentrate this post on amazing products from N.Y.C. So as all of you probably know, New York Color (N.Y.C.) is our most affordable drugstore brand. With products from cream blushes to mosaic face powders, their entire line ranges from $.99 to about $4.99. Recently, they are collaborating with a lot of makeup artists from New York City and creating these amazing limited edition collections that can beat Urban Decay or Makeup Forever any day. Recently they came out with a collection called Color Pop and that consisted of several dramatic shades of eye shadow duos and neon colored lip glosses which came out to be really sheer on the lips. When I went in yesterday, this new collection called Sun Soaked caught my eye. Today I went in again with a wallet and the iPhone and took a nice picture of the display. Here it is:

This collection has many new products for the summer time. They have their quick dry nail polishes in two shades: Pink Paradise and Coral Reefe. They both retail for $1.99 each. Then they had 2 new shades of their Waterproof eyeliner pencil in the colors Bronze and Turquoise. They retail for $3.99. They also have 2 lip glosses that retailed for $2.99 each with the same shade names as the nail polishes. They also came out with 2 matte bronzers retailing for $4.99 each. There are also new eye shadow quads and color wheel face powders for $4.99. I got so excited just by looking at the collection. I only purchased the eye pencil in Turquoise and the lip gloss in Coral Reefe. I will have pictures and a review down below.

N.Y.C. Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil in Turquoise
I love this so much. As the name suggests, this is a frosty turquoise shade. It’s creamy and smooth. Its greatly pigmented and wont rub off easily. It’s waterproof because it stayed on my waterline for about 6 hours. It seemed very comparable to Makeup Forever Aqua Liners and the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencils. Go grab this while you can since it’s a limited edition shade.

N.Y.C Kiss Gloss in Coral Reefe
I love this just as much as I love the eyeliner pencil. It’s a pinky coral shade that looks intensely pigmented, but when used on lips provided the perfect summer-y tint. It glides on easily. It’s not as sticky or thick as the kiss gloss from the Color Pop collection and this actually tastes sweet.

I just love these two products to death and I think I might get a nail polishes and the other eye liner because all of the products in this collection are limited edition and the collection is just too awesome to miss. Thanks for reading and I hope all of you enjoyed!
