Beauty Post: NYC New York Color Lovatics by Demi Lovato

Hello dears!  I have a makeup post for you today!  I KNOW RIGHT?!  I don't do very many of these but it was fun and I hope I can do more in the future.  So hang in there with me while I venture through this post sharing eyeshadow, eyebrow liner and lip/cheek tint!  These are some of the products from NYC New York Color Lovatics, the collection by Demi Lovato.  Demi is super cute and always looks on point with her fashions and makeup, so heck yes I am down to try out some cosmetics designed/approved by her!  So I've got a natural eyeshadow set, which is perfect for anyone.  A brown brow pencil, I'm having a whirl-wind affair with filling in my brows and this product is awesome.  And finally a lip and cheek tint that give just the perfect hint of color!  You can find these products at your local drug store.  So let's jump in and check out some Lovatics!

Up first I have the 020 Natural eyeshadow palette for you to view. These colors are fantastic!  You get 12 shades, a blend of shimmery and matte, ranging from a shell pink to a charcoal grey.  I found the shadow to be silky and smooth.  I applied swatches to my arm (over an eyeshadow primer) to show the color - both in indoor and sunlight.

You can see the colors are separated out into 3 groups: Discreet Nude, Glamour Nude and Smokey Nude.

Here are some of the lighters shades that make up Discreet Nude.  Perfect for the barely there, hint of shimmer or matte look.  Also great for brow bone highlighters.

Here are most of the Glamour Nude shades - these are my jam!  I love shimmery sandy colors like this.  So effortless to wear.

And finally, the Smokey Nude.  I find that I hardly wear grey, but the lighter one is very nice and wold be perfect with a light sweep over the lid.  #11, the darker grey is the only one that seemed to have a very slight application issue.  It didn't glide on as easily as the other colors.  You'll be able to see from the indoor swatch picture that the application wasn't fully even.

The set comes with 2 double sided application brushes, so 8 applicators in all.  They have a nice section that they click in to and don't float around loose in the palette container.

Inside lighting of the entire palette.  Lightest (#1) at the bottom of my arm and #12 at the top.

Same order, but in direct sunlight.

Moving along to the eyebrow pencil.  This was 001 Medium Brown.  It's pretty basic as far as brow pencils go.  A bit harder than an eye or lip liner, but I suppose it need to be to actually blend in with hair.  It also comes with this great grooming brush to bend the liner in and smooth your browns into place.

The bristles are nice and stiff.  Also very short so you have great control using the brush.

Here I'm using the grooming brush to lightly blend the liner line I drew.  I got a nice soft blend that will definitely work great on actual brows.

And last but not least, the world's greatest beauty invention...lip and cheek tint.  This is a liquid tint in a soft red shade, 003 Cheeky Strawberry.  I love that it's multipurpose and you can use it to color both areas.  The flush it gives off is soft and natural.  I only wish it was scented and or flavored like strawberries!  Yeah, I'm an 8 year old at heart and want everything to smell like Strawberry Shortcake toys.

Direct sun.  See how natural it looks?  Like a nice rose flush after a workout but without the sweat.

And a picture of it on my lips.  You don't need to rub it in on your lips, it just absorbs on it's own.  Again, nice and natural look.  Not overdone.  I love the soft tint of color.
