Winning Prize form Nicka K New York


As some of you who follows me on Instagram, knows I was one of the 8 winners in Nicka K New York #nickagenie contest. As a part of the prize I could spent $50 on their website.

I known Nicka K New York and Absolute New York ( sister brands) for a about 4-5 years. I came across them one day during my Christmas shopping. If you live and know NYC the best place for shopping is Broadway. Lots of wholesale stores offering; bags, perfumes, jewelry (silver and custom). And one time I saw a nice display with a lots of makeup and hair stuff. Yes that particular store carried a whole line of Nicka K product. All of it was new to me. I bought few things and following week I went back for more. that's my short story on how I came across them. I hope the store is STILL there hehe haven't been there in a while.

But anyways here is what I got ;

Oil Absorbing Sheets 

Absolute NY Primer

Nicka K New York Makeup Brushes :
Blending Brush
Eyeshadow Round Brush
Stippling Brush

EyeLight Crayon in Champagne ~ Great as a all over lid color or as an eyeshadow base.

Eye Shadow Base in NUDE

Nicka K New York Lip Liner in Mink ~ Its goes great with Rimmel Celestial Lip Lacquer 

Nicka K New York Eye Shadow Quad in Thema ~ Beautiful pink quad. I love the top two colors:)

Absolute NY Lip Crayons ~ Review and Swatches :)

Hi ,

I just came across of an amazing lip product! and of curse I am in LOVE :)
two weeks ago while shopping, these babies pop out out of nowhere and since the price was great I decided to take them home with me. After I first apply it was like WOW! 
The Absolute NEW YORK LIP CRAYON  3-piece set came in following colors :

*RED (Curvy Candy)
*PINK (Strawberry)
*PINKY NUDE (Cherry)

the texture is super soft, smooth  and buttery. You don't even need to press hard to get that intense color! and you will after ONE swipe, yes just one. don't have to go over and over on your lips like with other lipsticks and other crayons. 
What I did was just outline my lips (like with lip liner) and then filled the bottom lip with the color and press them together. Done. 
The texture reminds me a bit of NYX Butter Lipstick but this one is more creamier and much more softer. And the pigmentation of these babies is awesome! Leave a glossy finish and after long lasting stain.
Plus On top of that they moisturize.
The crayon tube is plastic , very well made. The cap not so good. It a bit loose and it easily comes off. Like most of the crayons there are twist able.
I saw them on Nicka K website a while back  for $9.99, but don't think they sell it anymore. (?)

Here are some swatches on Meh :) Sorry the pictures might be a bit bright.... The sun was hiding and my flash was on , so yep i will be shiny hahah :) but don't ya look at mah face just mah lips :) hehe 
let me know what you ladies think!

this one is color STRAWBERRY

This one in color CHERRY

This one in color CURVY CANDY.
