NYC New York Color Spring 2015 Collection: #NYCBeautyPro January Challenge

Disclaimer: Product featured was provided for review.
Hey guys, happy Sunday, hope your weekend is going well! Today I have a #NYCBeautyPro post for you, showcasing some of the new New York Color Spring 2015 releases. As you may or may not have heard, Demi Lovato has joined NYC as the brands first Brand Ambassador and the new spring collection very well represents Demi's adventurous makeup choices.

Big Bold Bronzer in "602 MetropoliTan" ($5.99 CAD):
At a whopping 17.7g size, this is a huge bronzer! In fact, I noticed that bronzers from all brands tend to be huge, even bigger than setting powders, which is curious as I can't imagine anyone using more bronzer than setting powders. Anyhow, this Big Bold Bronzer from NYC in "MetropoliTan is a terracotta brown with very subtle shimmers. The formulation is surprisingly pigmented and smooth, definitely a winner!

City Proof 24Hr Waterproof Eyeshadow ($4.99 CAD):
Twist up eyeshadow with a long lasting formulation, these crayons are available in a variety of shades. Below I have swatches of "Brooklyn Mocha", a light sparkly brown, "Tribeca Taupe", a matte smoky taupe, and "East River Romance", a pretty shimmery blue. The formulation of all three is creamy, with "Tribeca Taupe" being the most pigmented. As the name suggests, the crayons are quite long lasting. The cream formulation sets after application and remains mostly smudge and waterproof.

Expert Last Satin Matte Lip Color in "Velvety Fuchsia" ($1.99 CAD):
These new matte finish Expert Last Lip Colors feature some new shades and a modern satin matte finish. I have below a gorgeous bright summery reddish pink. The formulation is pigmented, smooth, and long lasting. For $1.99, these Expert Last lipsticks are simply amazing!

And finally, here is my look for January. Inspired by Demi's daring makeup choices, I paired the bright blue eye crayon with a bold lip and the result is very summery and fun.
