When I saw these NYC BB cream blush sticks over on one of my fave blogs (Amelia Liana) I instantly wanted to try them out. Blush in a stick form is something you never see in Drugstore brands, and these beautifully blushable cream sticks were only £2.99 a piece. Having not tried that many things from the NYC line, I wasn't sure what to expect.
Well, let me tell you - they are fabulous! They have a creamy, buttery formula that gives immense colour pay off with one swipe - especially the brighter colour of the two (never sleeping pink) which is a gorgeous bright pink with a hint of coral. Soho pink is more of a subtle shade with a little bit of sheen and shimmer to it, which is a beautiful colour for all year through but especially this time of year when all of the berries and nudes come into play.
They are surprisingly easy to apply, just pop them straight onto your cheeks (just a little) and blend them out with your finger or using a small stippling brush. I personally find using my hands the easiest way but it works well both ways. Unlike other cream formulas, they don't cling to the foundation underneath and drag it around - they just blend so well. They are a cream to powder product, so don't leave your face feeling sticky but they do give you a lovely, sheen to your cheeks that you just can't get with powder blush products. The only downside to these blushes that I can see is that they only come in 2 shades -- I want more!
You can find NYC BB cream blush sticks in Superdrug for £2.99 each (link, regularly on offer too).
P.s It's the 1st of October. When did that happen?!
