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!
*available to purchase at: Rite Aid, CVS, Walmart, Duane Reade, Target, Kmart, Family Dollar
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.
