The last time you saw me write about NYC Lovatics by Demi I was raving about the Natural palette that has been created in the Demi Lovato collection from NYC. My raves have continued since I use this palette all the time. It hits the right buttons for the looks that I love. Plus it’s a total dupe for the original Urban Decay Naked palette. It’s spot on. Whenever I see dupes I wonder about quality but there’s no wondering with this palette since the quality is there 100%.
There are no names on this palette but NYC numbered them and then gathered them into groups depending on the look you are interested in: Discreet Nude, Glamour Nude and Smokey Nude. The numbers are in the order of the palette seen above.
There’s a mix of finishes in the palette making it great for whatever look you want.
My favorite shades are always metallic and lightly shimmered like #4, 6, and 9. I like pigment and brightness in my shadows and Natural has that along with the everyday shades that you need like the matte shades. This is a total steal at $6.99 or $4.99 (Walmart) and I really hope that NYC brings out more palettes in this line.
In addition to the palette NYC came out with a few more fun items including four Lip & Cheek Tints that are only $3.99. These are liquid stains and they really do stain. If you are looking for a very natural lip tint that will not dry out your lips at all and yet will impart some color, these are for you. They come packaged like a nail polish and the brush is easy to use for applying but you need to work fast with these.
I have Cheeky Pink and Cheeky Strawberry and there’s also Cheeky Red and Cheeky Berry. As much as I love cream blushes I’m really too old for these liquids as cheek shades so I personally use them on my lips. Cheeky Pink is bright and has a longer lasting stain to it than Cheeky Strawberry which is darker but subtler.
If you have a daughter who does something like dance competitions or cheerleading, these would be perfect. They give that fresh from the cold appearance but won’t disappear, especially Cheeky Pink. According to NYC these are kiss proof and smudge proof. A great substitute for Benefit’s Lip and Cheek Tints!
I think Demi Lovato is a great spokeswoman for NYC. She’s on a career comeback, she’s bright and cheery, and she’s a fresh face beauty. With different packaging you could sell these for much more and no one would know the difference. — Marcia
