I have already reviewed 3 blushes from NYC from the Blushable Cream sticks Range in Urban Spice, Mauvin Uptown and Berry New Yorker. The 2 shades I’ll be showing you today are the 2 shades I bought recently. Where the previous shades were more bronze, mauve or berry in nature, these 2 that I will be showing you today are from the Pink family.

Â My take on the NYC Blushable Cream sticks in Plaza Pink and Big Apple Blush:
- Color: Plaza Pink is an unadulterated pale pink shade with a tiny bit of shimmer. It is quite satiny and gives off a nice sheen when applied. Big Apple Blush on the other hand is a warmer rosey pink which is also just as creamy but looks almost matte once it sets.
- Price: Â $3.99/ INR 350
- Quantity: Â 8g
- Pigmentation & Texture: These blushes are insanely creamy.Â Only god knows how long it will last.,..Probably my grand kids may also be able to use these :)Texture-wise I prefer Big Apple Blush more because of the finish. Plaza Pink looks too shiny on my face and after a short duration tends to look a bit oily.
- Staying Power: Plaza Pink has a low staying power on me of about 2-2.5hrs. Big Apple Blush however stays on for about 5hrs easily.
I am not too fond of Pink Plaza I admit…It doesn’t make me look pale or anything but the sheen is just too much for me. Maybe it would fare better during winters when my skin gets super dry..But in summers, this doesn’t look too favourable on me. Big Apple blush on the other hand is a total winner. It adds a rosey warmth to my cheeks and looks matte after setting. But at no point does this make my skin look dry. Another huge plus point is that this is the kind of shade that one can wear anytime regardless of whether day or night. It will flatter any skintone and look super pretty 🙂
