Huge N.Y.C Cosmetics Haul,Review and Swatches!!!!!

Hey girls,

Sorry I havent been posting anything on my blog for a while Ive been on holidays but I have a huge haul coming up and a few tutorials aswell so watch out for them :)!
So today I have a huge NYC haul and review for you.


N.Y.C stands for NEW YORK COLOR this brand was made to capture the vibe, energy, and style of the the big apple at very small affordable prices.

ok so the first thing i got was:
Powder Blush in 652 west side wine
retails at 2.99 in euro

I adore the packaging and also the mini brush that comes with it.
 The bristles are super soft and the brush doesnt shed.
 I love the colour of this blush its very very natural its almost like your not wearing any but this blush is great for very pale skin or for people who dont like to wear much blush

2 eyeshadows
baby blue: 913 high street (matte)
purple: 910 in vogue (slight shimmer in light)
retail at 1.99 euro each

this picture is taken without a flash and as you can see the colors are so pigmented i cant believe how good/pigmented these shadows are and they cost so little.

with flash

kiss gloss (tube) 532 park Ave punch
retails at 1.49 euro

liquid lipshine:
 575 brighton beach peach (sheer shimmery pink)
574 city's clear (clear)
retails at 2.29 euro

what i love about all of these lipglosses is that they smell fruity but they are not over powering and
there not in any way heavy or sticky on your lips.
it just feels like im wearing vaseline on my lips
and the wands are very flexible which makes application easier.

The red lipgloss is very red on your lips it made my lips look like they were irratated and sore :(
The sheer pink lipgloss is very shimmery so if your not a fan of glitter or shimmer this product isnt for you.
The clear lipgloss is perfect over a matte lipstick to add a bit of shine :)

ultra last lipstick in 407b smooch
retails at 2.49 euro

this picture is taken without a flash
it is a reddish pink colour

but with the flash it appears to be a pink colour with gold under tones.
Im not a huge fan of this colour but i do like the packaging and the feel of the lipstick on my lips its not too heavy and it stays on well.

color wheel mosaic
724A all over bronze glow
retails at 3.49 euro

I love love this this product the packaging is so pretty and the mosaic look is gorgeous
the bronzer is the perfect shade for me and its completely matte (I hate shimmer on my face)
im so happy with this product.

skin matching foundation
686 light
contains vitamins A,C,E
retails at 3.99 euro

Now im a very hard person to please when it comes to foundation
Even though this foundation is meant to adapt to your skins colour and texture I found the colour was to light for me and washed me out and the coverage wasnt great.
It bends easily and the foundation is like velvet
It gives you dewy glow but very sheer coverage.
If you like a very light natural foundation you will love this but if your like me and want something with a bit more coverage you probably wont be happy with this product but it only costs 3.99 so its well worth a try :)

Automatic eye pencil
plum perfect
retails at 2.99 euro

This picture is taken without a flash and as you can see the colour is so pigmented
 I dont own a purple eyeliner so im excited so try out some looks out with this eyeliner!! 

with flash

lipping large
strawberry mousse
retails at 2.49 euro

Again this is a very sheer pink lipgloss with gold shimmer
It smells minty and tingles your lips to make them "plump"
I personally dont like the tingling sensation but I loved the colour on my lips and the minty smell.

Expert last nail polish
155 gramercy glitz
111 perpetual peony
both retail at 1.99 euro

new york color in a minute
208B little italy
224B times square
221B1 spring street
retail at 1.29 euro

I love this barbie pink colour its my favourite!

I added the clear glitter colour to it and it looks amazing!!!!!!

All the polishes dried instantly painting my nails was totally effortless
and all the colours are gorgeous and vibrant
 I will defo be adding more of these to my collection :)

You can purchase nyc products at

FTC disclaimer : These products were sent to me by NYC cosmetics but im not getting paid in any way to blog about these products. This is my honest opinion!

Love Saz

Maybe you will want to put a twitter button to your blog. I just bookmarked the site, although I had to do this manually. Just my advice.

Do you have a YouTube channel? If not your should and be one of the "Makeup Gurus" they have all over youtube. They are quite popular. Tutorials are easier to follow (for me) in video form rather than in picture form and a lot of other people too. Good Luck!!
