A quick drive-by to share my newest acquisition, the New York Color Cheek Glow blush in the color Chelsea Coral ($2.99) from the limited edition City Sweets collection.
Chelsea Coral is a coral color that leans orange with fine microshimmer that imparts a subtle glow to the skin. If you’re looking for something totally matte this blush probably isn’t for you.
The texture feels a little dry compared to the smoother, more finely milled consistencies of Milani and Jordana powder blushes. As for pigmentation, it’s really good compared to NYC’s other rectangular Cheek Glow blushes, but only average if you measure it against more strongly pigmented drugstore brands such as Wet n Wild, Milani and Jordana.
