Cheeky cheeky with New York Colour

A couple of weeks ago I went to see what new products New York Colour had in store for us and was excited to get to play with the Blushable Creme Sticks.

All I can say ladies is these are so worth the €3.49!  I've been wearing this one, Big Apple Blush, every day to work for the last three weeks and I can't see myself stopping any time soon.  I am a messy person and like to apply this with my MAC 109.  The reason being is when I use my fingers to apply products, I forget to wipe my hands and I inevitably get them all over my clothes before I've left for work, so this is my fool proof way to stay clean (until break time, then all bets are off, spilling things a plenty).  I either dab my brush onto the top of the product and work it into the skin, or apply a big strip on the back of my hand and dip the brush into that and then work it on to my cheeks.

The blush is contained in a tube that you twist up to reveal the product.  It blends like a dream and is buildable, giving both a flush of colour to the cheeks and a beautiful sheen.  I'm all about glowy cheeks these days and if that's what you like, then these are the products for you.  Below is a comparison photo showing the Blushable Cream Stick on one cheek and nothing on the other cheek.

I love these little sticks and can't wait for more shades to be released here.  They last about six hours on me and that's without setting them with any powder.  I usually set my foundation with powder but just on my t-zone, leaving my cheeks to glow away.  If you wanted them to stay put for the day, then I'd set them with a powder blush and they won't go anywhere.  What do you think girls?  Cheap as chips and gorgeous, that's my boxes ticked!
