Quick N.Y.C. Haul

I went to the drugstore the other day for a birthday card and of course I had to leave with some cosmetics. Usually I'm not a big fan of N.Y.C cosmetics but I was pleasantly surprised when I glanced in their direction. They have revamped their line and now it looks more professional. They are like super cheap (I'm talking dirt cheap!) and I picked up a few items that I'm really happy with.
Here is what I bought:
From top (all from the N.Y.C. line):
Eye 2 Eye Color & Contour Shadows in Ink
In a New York Color Minute Quick Dry Nail Polish in Chinatown
Color Wheel Mosaic Bronzing Powder in Island Spice

I really needed a brow highlighter because all the whites I have at home seem to be dull. This pearly white is really pigmented so it deposits a lot of color. The black contour shadow is your basic black with a hint of shimmer, so it blends easily. I really love this duo because it's small and compact and easy to travel with. Plus it was a dollar! Can't beat that!

I am obsessed with the Quick Dry Nail Polish in Chinatown! I had been looking around for a dark purple almost black color and this is it!! I recently bought a nail polish from Forever21 called Black/Silver which looked really nice in the bottle but then when I put it on, it was almost matte. It had no shine to it. Then I found this one! It's exactly the color I was looking for! It's great for fall!! The picture doesn't really give the color any justice because it looks almost black here because of the flash. In reality the color is a really, really dark purple.

The bronzer is a little overwhelming to wear alone since it is a darker shade (for me anyways) but it's really nice to wear over your every day bronzer or foundation. If you lightly dust your face with a round powder brush, then it gives a subtle warm glow that reminds me of a summer tan!
I spent a total of $4.50 for these three items which is totally worth my trip to the drugstore! Do you have any other N.Y.C. products that are some of your faves that I should take a look at?

Hugs and Kisses!
