N.Y.C. Blushable Creme Sticks

Yesterday at Rite Aid, I spotted an N.Y.C. display with the new blushable creme sticks. Lately, I've been feeling blah about makeup, but surprisingly I actually wanted to try these out.

As usual I was unprepared because I didn't have all of my coupons, except for one measley $0.50 off coupon any N.Y.C. product. There were only three blushes left and I knew if I left them they wouldn't be there tomorrow. Luckily, Rite Aid currently has bogo 50% off, so I figured why not.

Gold Radiance is a semi shimmery gold that can be used as a highlighter from someone my complexion. Bronze Radiance is a super pigmented bronze. When I swatched this color I only needed one swipe as opposed to the gold which took four to get a decent swatch. I feel in love with Bronze Radiance right after swatching it.

N.Y.C. Blushable Creme Sticks retail for $3.99 and you can find them at your local drugstore. Do you own either one of these blush sticks? Leave a comment and let me know what you think of them.

Fourth of July FOTD

I know, I know, I'm late as usual, but since it is such a simple face of the day I figured why not.  There is no red, white and blue going on here.  I did however, decide to finally break out my MAC Petals & Peacocks lipstick which matched perfectly with my dress.  

 Here's what I used:

E.L.F. Tinted Moisturizer in Almond
Revlon Colorstay Mineral Finishing Powder Sunkiss (on cheeks and across forehead)
Revlon Colorstay Mineral Finishing Powder Brighten (as a highlight)
My Paradise cheek powder (blush)

Victorious Opulash mascara (Wonder Woman Collection)

EOS lip balm in Summer Fruit (my fave)
MAC Petals & Peacocks lipstick (Give Me Liberty of London Collection)

How did you spend your Fourth of July?  Did you wear any patriotic makeup looks?  Leave a comment and let me know??
