NYC BB Creme & BB Radiance powder review

Hey guys! Today I'm bring you a review on the NYC BB Creme Instant Matte in the shade 02 medium and BB Radiance powder in Naturally Beige. NYC also brought out a bb creme bronzed radiance but I skipped using that for this days make up. I wasn't feeling too great but hey sometimes I just want to wear make up and I wanted to try these out!

This bb creme is said to be hydrating while at the same time being matte. I wore one layer and it has a light but decent coverage. It has a very light feel and dried nicely. Definitely matte without being overwhelmingly matte. 

*warning* this next photo is many HOURS later including a trip to the urgent care.... The look on my face is because I have strep throat and a super bad ear ache... Smudged mascara and all, I'm still going to share it because.... My face make up was still looking mostly decent! 
Aren't you glad I warned you lol. Well let's move on from that and get into how well this bb creme and powder held up!

I didn't end up super oily like I have with other bb cremes. It did break down some  but this was like 12 hours after the first pic was taken. I can't believe how much I like this to be honest. I'm glad I got to try these because they're great for day to day wear and they're price friendly.  I also think these would be great to give any young girl who is just starting to get into make up and doesn't want a heavy full coverage foundation. 

The only downfall I can find is the range of colors is very, very limited. Like 2 shades limited... for each of the bb cremes and the powder. I hope they add more to this line because for the inexpensive price, they're well worth it. 

The NYC BB Cremes & Powders retail for $3.99 and can be found at drugstores and mass retailers nationwide. 

I hope you enjoyed today's post! Thanks for hanging out with me. Until next time...
Xo, Lo
