Big Bold NYC

By Wednesday, January 01, 2014 , , , , , ,

I recently received some NYC products in my Influenster Maple VoxBox. I was excited since it had been years since I tried anything of theirs. What I got was Big Bold Plumping Lip Gloss in Big City Blush - a soft and sheer pink and Big Bold Curl Mascara.

Both items seemed deceivingly normal in the tubes, but once opened I could see they certainly were BIG!

Both the mascara's wand and the lip glosses doe foot are gigantic! Just to show you how big I am join got compare them to normal sized products from other brands

 Above is the NYC next to a Mac lipgloss, and below is the doe foots.

So now you see how gigantic they are in comparison. 
I used both the lip gloss in Big City Blush and the mascara in the look below.
I find the big products interesting and really good quality. The gloss is smooth and not too sticky, the large doe foot surprisingly doesn't add too much product. The gloss even has a minty ting to it that I quite enjoy. I will be buying more of them, maybe in a  shade with more tint to it though.

As for the mascara I found it quite good. I actually could get to the roots easily despite the size. My only issue is that I on more then one occasion hit upper eye area and left a big mark. It just took some getting used to. I really do like the formal, minimal flaking and great definition from the wand.

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
