NYC Smoke

I’m totally, completely in love with this little eyeshadow set from NYC, they sent me a bunch of products to try recently as I have agreed to become an “ambassador” for the brand (more on that when I understand a little more about it) and I have completely rediscovered my love for Showtime mascara. When I was first on YouTube I tried about a gizillion drugstore mascaras and to keep costs down I looked to brands like NYC to review as their prices are super affordable. I loved Showtime and mascara is a really tricky product for me so to find one that costs a whopping £1.99 is nothing short of a miracle. I am now entirely as enamoured by their quads and smokey eye kits too. The one I’m wearing here is actually for blue eyes but the plum shade attracted me and I think it brings out the green tones in my hazel browns. I will be doing lots more NYC reviews soon and having looked at the prices I am very excited to find more products to recommend that are so affordable but if you only take one thing away from this post go out and by this mascara, for the money it will blow you away! It’s not some fancy Dior Show but it is very almost as good as the L’Oreal I love for less than 20% of the cost!

NYC is available online and in Superdrug stores Nationwide (probably why I forgot all about it – I’m a Boots girl – it’s all about the advantage points!)

    I have tried theor Nail polishes & love those. Great value for money. The eyeshadows look right up my street. I love neutral colours & wear them the most by far. I will keep my eyes open for these.

    You have to try the NYC nail polishes they are so nice. My favourite is New York Color Minute in Canal Street.

    That looks good, I really need to get experimenting with my makeup again! You can get points in superdrug too 🙂 and sometimes they have deals like 10 points on every £1 if you spend over £10 in store

    I went out and bought the custom eye palette for blue eyes as soon as I saw your video the other day! I have to say, the plum colour is what attracted me also, but when I applied it to the eyes, it comes out more of a dark grey colour. The creme that is supposed to be the primer didn’t work very well on me, and by the end of the day, the eye shadows had creased horribly (worn for 10 hours). I tried the next day with the highlighter creme as a base, and so far, no creasing! (8 hours of wear) I love the eye shadows though!

    Why spend loads on a ud naked basics when you can have this little number. Bought a smilar quad from revlon and gosh and was totally disappointed. This one looks much better. I need this in my life!

      I would agree but I know I will buy the basics. I LOVE my UD shadows, they’re me one higher end makeup vice and the fact they’re all matte.. well!! Must have!
