NYC New York Color Crystal Couture: Blue Majesty, Queen's Jewels & Rule the City

Good afternoon dearies!  Are you ready for some bling?  I mean some seriously serious bling?  I am! So let's talk about the NYC New York Colors Fall 2014 Limited Edition Fashion Queen Collection.  The collection consists of 6 glitters, called Crystal Couture.  It also has a creme and 2 shimmers from the In a New York Minute formula.  I love that this brand is easily available at local drug and super stores AND that they are only $1.99!   Let me say that I was very impressed with the formula of all 3 of these shades, they were all easy to use and had great coverage.  They are more than worth their affordable price!  I have 3 of the Crystal Couture glitters to share so let's jump in and check them out!

The first one I have to share is Blue Majesty.  This is a beautiful blue based jelly full of blue and green metallic glitters.  Blue Majesty had a great formula that was easy to work with.  The glitter payoff was great, so much glitter!  I reached full coverage in 3 coats (you could easily do 2 but I always err on the side of more is better than less).  I finished with 1 layer of topcoat for a perfectly glossy and smooth to the touch look.  *my pictures are showing Blue Majesty as a bit darker than it actually is.

Queen's Jewels is a stunning shade of emerald green.  It's a green jelly base full of green glitters.  GAH it's so pretty!  Such a perfect jewel tone for the Fall.  Queen's Jewels had a fabulous formula, it built up very nicely.  The glitters came out easily and in abundance.  I used 3 coats of Queen's Jewels and 1 layer of topcoat for a shiny finish.

I saved my favorite for last...Rule the City.  This is an amazing gunmetal shimmer base with red glitters.  WOW, what a combination!  It's glamorous yet perfect for every day.  Again, perfect formula and application here.  Plenty of glitter came out and it's dispersed evenly in the base.  I used 2 coats of Rule the City and 2 layer of topcoat.
