Product Review: N.Y.C. Blushable Creme Sticks in Urban Spice and South St. Seashell

Ever since I first purchased the N.Y.C. Blushable Creme Stick in Plaza Pink, I instantly fell in love, and decided to try some more shades from this fab line of creme blushes.This time around I purchased two more creme blushes in Urban Spice and South St. Seashell ($3.99 each).

Urban Spice is a beautiful gold and bronze that contains a frosty shimmer. I initially purchased this shade because it seemed like it would be a great contouring shade for me, but when I tried to contour with it, it did not look as nice as if I would contour with a powdered bronzer or blush. This creme blush does not seem to show up much on my skin tone, when I put it on my cheeks I just see a soft wash of color with loads of shimmer. So, if you are a fan of shimmer then this is the product for you. I don't dislike Urban Spice, I am sure using it as a highlight on my cheekbones or anywhere else I want some shimmer would work great. But for me, this does not work as a contouring color or a cheek color.

South St. Seashell is a pretty dusty rose color that contains a hint of brown in it. It looks brown in the swatch picture above, but in real life, it has a dusty rose color to it. I like how natural this color looks on my cheeks and shimmer does not show up on me. For me, when it comes to cream blushes, I prefer them to be shimmer-less. I think they look more natural that way. This color would look amazing paired with a smokey eye and nude lips.

What do you all think of these creme blushes by N.Y.C.? Let me know in the comments!
