Earlier today, I found a new NYC collection at Rite Aid, called the Let’s Paint The Town collection. Since none of the products are listed on NYC’s website, I think every product in this display is limited edition – however, if you have different information, please let me know in the comments!
The display contains two bronzers, four lip glosses, two eyeshadow trios, two sparkle eye dusts and polishes (from the $2 quick dry line). This post has information and photos about the collection; I purchased several items, and I’ll have swatches for you tomorrow.
NYC Big Bold Bronzing Powder: ManhanTan, MetropoliTan
The bronzers are a new item; they’re named the Big Bold Bronzing powders, and I love the design embossed on them. The lighter one is named ManhanTan and the darker MetropoliTan. As you can see, I purchased both.
Water Lily, Dewy Rose, Pink Flamingo, Spring Meadow
There are four Kiss lip glosses. Water Lily appears to be a shimmery pink, Dewy Rose to be a pink creme, Pink Flamingo a coral creme, and Spring Meadow to be a shimmery green (which I am guessing applies clear from the translucency). I believe the Kiss Glosses are fairly sheer glosses, so I didn’t purchase any of them.
Crystal Springs, Water Colors
The eyeshadow trios have lovely colors – I especially love the peach in Water Colors and the blue in Water Colors. But, given my recent disappointing experience with NYC eyeshadow trios, I didn’t purchase either.
Golden Splash, Precious Pink
Oddly, the pink-appearing Sparkle Eye Dust is called Golden Splash (perhaps it reflects gold?) and the sandy gold Sparkle Eye Dust is called Precious Pink. I checked all of the labels on all of the eye dusts (each is labeled twice) in case something was mislabeled, but that appears not to be the case. I purchased Precious Pink & will have swatches of that for you tomorrow.
Spring Tulip, Apple Fizz, Raindrop, Shimmer Blast
The nail polishes are really lovely – Spring Tulip is a hot pink creme, which is a great color, but not really my style, so I didn’t get it. I purchased the other three – Apple Fizz, sort of a neon pastel green, Raindrop, a pastel blue (also not really my color, but I’ve been getting more into blue lately), and Shimmer Blast, which I am SO excited to swatch.
Will you be keeping an eye out for this collection?
