NYC (New York Colour) has released a range of new Smoky Eye products for Autumn 2012 in a range of bright, yet soft and wearable tones. It’s not a brand I have encountered often, but is extremely well priced and includes some little gems.
“This A/W’s smoky eye trend: less Karashian black, all about earthy muted tones of mosses and aubergine.”
My favourite of these four palettes is Best of Broadway, not just because these are my kind of colours, but the quality is particularly good in this set - it’s really well pigmented, particularly the two darker shades - and the texture is soft and creamy with not too much fallout. The tones are just as sophisticated as much pricier products, particularly the bitter brown with aubergine undertones (2nd from top) which I love.
I’ve been wearing this Peach Fizz lipstick a lot this week - a pretty pink which feels nice and creamy on. The eye pencils are slightly harder in texture than I’d like, but the colours are spot on.
Here are some of the colours modelled, with a deeper berry lip. The nail polish collection is amazing - I’m totally in love with the Boundless Berry shade and will be back with more on that soon!
- Metro Quartet Smoky Eyeshadow palettes: £2.99
- Ultra Last Lipstick: £1.49
- Kohl Kajal Eyeliner Pencils: £1.99
- City Curls Curling Mascara: £2.49
You can find more info and check for local stockists at NYC Colour - the brand is also stocked at Superdrug but these items don’t appear to be on the website yet - it might be worth checking instore.
