When it comes to budget brands you really can't go more budget-y than with NYC Cosmetics, and cheap doesn't always mean poor quality by all means, and I have two brilliant products today to demonstrate you (and me!) just that.
I was sent these products by the brand on Thursday and I was quite delighted to have received their Color Instinct quad in the shade that I've been looking for ages, shade 967 'Picnic in Central Park' which was always sold out from the NYC stands I came across in my endless quest. This costs 3.49 Euro and it's bleedin' gorgeous if you ask me, if you're on a budget and love shimmery neutrals, then you'll love this palette. The formula of these is identical between them, soft and creamy and very pigmented. I wish the darker shade would come in a bigger size, but I guess these were created in a clever 'light, medium, dark' kind of way, knowing that the medium shades would be mostly used all over the eyelids, and the rest will be used in smaller amounts on the outer and inner corners of the eyes respectively.
