NYC New York Color - Go big or Go home!

I recently received two NYC (New York Color) products, courtesy of Influenster. I've seen the brand at Shoppers on several occasions, but the display never drew me in so I've never tried it.

Like essence cosmetics, NYC has it's own little display, usually at the end of an aisle (not the end cap) and I believe their products range from $0.99 to $4.99.

I received their Big Bold Curl Mascara and Big Bold Shine Lipgloss.

The names of these products give the impression of "Go Big or Go Home". The packaging carries that as well!

NYC New York Color Big Bold Curl Mascara - $4.99
Big Bold Curl Mascara's oversized curved brush is the ultimate way to get outrageously thick and super sexy lashes. One stroke gives your lashes up to 12x more colume and 99% more lift

The mascara wand is like a big furry caterpillar for your eyes. I wasn't sure if I was going to like the wand as I've become so accustomed to the smaller ones. But it did surprise me. It did help to curl them a bit and it also added some extra volume. It also coated my lashes quite nicely.

NYC New York Color Big Bold Plumping Lip Gloss in Big City Blush- $4.99
Big Bold Plumping Lip Gloss makes lips look up to 50% fuller with a high gloss shine that lasts up to 4 hours. The ultra-soft, mega applicator gives full and even coverage for beautiful, perfectly plump lips.

Size Comparison: NYC, Eye Pencil, MAC lipgloss

This truly is a Mega applicator! While this doe foot applicator is very soft (but honestly, how many doe foot applicators are not soft?) the size of it grabs too much product for my lips. I have to wipe a little off on the edge of the package. It doesn't offer much colour, instead giving your lips more of a frosted look or a bit of s sheen (depending on how much/thick you apply). Depending on your natural lip colour, this may look a little different on you.

In terms of plumping, I didn't see any difference (however I have never seen any difference regardless of the plumping product). It does leave your lips with the tingly feeling that lasts for a few short minutes.

While I'm not sold on the lipgloss, the mascara may have me convinced that I don't have to pay$15+ for a good mascara.
