ABAD Day 10: NYC Blushable Creme Stick in Big Apple Blush //"每日一胭脂"系列 第10天: NYC Big Apple Blush 胭脂膏

A-Blush-A-Day has come to one-third by today! I got this NYC Blushable Creme Stick in Big Apple Blush from Diane, who sent me the same stick in Plaza Pink which I'll review later as well. I have heard about NYC cream blush sticks for a while and thought they should be pretty tiny but they turned out to be pretty huge, containing 8g each!

"每日一胭脂"系列今天已經過了三分一了! Diane不久前寄了這個NYC Big Apple Blush 的胭脂膏給我, 還有同款的 Plaza Pink顏色. 以前聽聞過很多人讚好, 亦以為很細小吧, 怎知一收到便很驚訝, 體積頗大之餘, 還要有8克那麼多!

The cream blush can be twisted upwards.

As you can see from the swatch on arm, application is easy breezy, most importantly, it shows up in just one swipe! The color leans towards a deep rose shade.

下面試色圖可看到掃上這個顏色是多麼的容易和顯色, 顏色偏深玫瑰紅.

Applied on cheeks. It's extremely pigmented yet easy to blend. I'm impressed. I seldom use such bright/dark rosey shades as I thought they would make me look like I have a rash.

在面上推開很容易, 非常上色, 很impressed. 我甚少用這麼深的紅色, 怕出來的效果很像皮膚敏感般.

Intensity: Highly pigmented
Finish: Matte, easy to blend
Price: A few US Dollars, cheap with 8g of product
Lasting power: Starts to fade after 3-4 hours >_<, could do much better in terms of longevity
Repurchase: I'd love to try #Wild Berry and #Pink Flash, but those are LE shades.../_\
Overall thoughts: NYC Blushable Creme Sticks are impressive, it was love-at-first-swatch. I wish it come with more color variety and the lasting power is longer.

上色度: 很高
效果: 啞光, 容易推勻
價錢: 數元美金
持久度: 3-4小時之後開始脫色 >_<, 有莫大改善空間
回購: 想試 #Pink Flash 和 #Wild Berry 2色, 但都是限量色來的 /_\
總評: NYC 胭脂膏非常好, 一試鍾情的那種. 如果有更多顏色選擇和持久度高些便好了.

What is A-Blush-A-Day (ABAD) Project?
Project ABAD was started by Elaine, Jolyn and I. On each day, each of us will present a different blush (old or new) we used each day (so that's 3 x 30 = 90 blushes), with swatches done either on face or on hand, and a short review. For my list of 30 blushes to be used in this project, click here. Don't forget to head to Elaine's and Jolyn's blogs for daily blush surprises!

我們三個(Elaine, Jolyn 和我)每天會介紹當日使用的胭脂, 3人 x 30 = 會介紹總共 90 個胭脂 (新與舊), 配以試色圖(於手上或面上), 再加短短的用評. 本人於未來30天會使用這些胭脂. 去Elaine, Jolyn的blogs看看她們在用那個胭脂吧!!


  1. That's really pigmented.. Being a blusher lover, I'm enjoying ur posts xP

  2. Wow, I love how pigmented the blush is! The colour is beautiful! Thanks so much for sharing with us x

  3. Congrats! 1/3 through, and I am still struggling to get the 3rd one up.

    I don't think I own any cream blush.

    Perhaps, to make it stay longer, try to set it with a similar shade powder blush, and just some translucent powder.

    I would recommend that you try one of MAC MSFs the next time they come out with one in their future collection(s). :)

  4. HAHAHA xD Oh wow.. I don't like cream blushes (as you know), but it looks nice on you! : D I actually saw this one in a youtube video... -pnders-

  5. I have this in South Plaza..the color almost the same as my Stila Cream blush. But as you know, I love my Stila better :)

  6. OH I've been looking for a really nice matte cream blush, this would be perfect! too bad though it's not availabe here in Phils.

  7. Seeing how saturated the colour was, I'm quite surprised it looks very natural on you!

  8. I have heard so many good things about these NYC cream sticks.. I wanna try these because they seem so inexpensive!

  9. I have this blush. Speak of the devil, I should use it... lol~ It looks really good on you. Very blended out. :)

    How come only one Armani ETK? :/

  10. this shade can easily be overdone and make you look bruised, but it still looks good! HEY ALL BLUSHERS look good on you! no fair! :P

  11. Hi Jennifer, it's me again! Forgot to answer your question; yes Zuneta is an online store. They have free international delivery on orders over £65. i don't think you can find RBR on Asos.

    Am really loving your blush collection so far!!


LOVE to hear what you think <3 I'll try my best to respond to every comment!
