Spotted: New NYC HD Color Trios Eyeshadows, Big Bold Curl Mascara and more

If I had a dime for every time I heard someone say that they wanted to see more affordable, pigmented, neutral eyeshadows at the drugstore, I'd surely be rich by now. Well it seems that NYC might be granting our wishes with their new HD Color Trios that promise "high intensity color" and come in lovely neutral shades (which don't appear to be big on shimmer or sparkle). 

And that's not all: for those of you who are fans of what's probably going to be My Favorite New Drugstore Mascara of 2012 (NYC Big Bold Mascara), you'll be happy to know that NYC has also just released a new Big Bold Curl Mascara. And they've released some new Sparkle Eye Dusts and a High Definition Felt Tip Eyeliner (I think I've seen this promoted in another recent display, so I don't think this one's brand new).

NOTE: these are new 2013 additions to the permanent NYC line. These are not limited edition. I do not have pricing at this time, but I know that the regular Big Bold Mascara retails for $4.99. I'm guessing that the eyeshadow trios are probably $3.99 each.

A huge thanks to reader Amber of Sweet Pea in the Snow for this display pic, which she spotted at CVS:

Tara confirmed that in this display there are the following:

Six shades of HD Color Trio Eyeshadows
Six shades of Sparkle Eye Dusts
One shade of Big Bold Curl Mascara (black)
One shade of High Definition Felt Tip Eyeliner (black)

You can be sure that as soon as I get my hands on these new eyeshadow trios and mascara, I will buy them and review them ASAP. As with the new lip colors and new nail polishes, this new NYC display is now surfacing at CVS, which probably means we'll spot them at Rite Aid and Kmart pretty soon.

Thanks so much, Tara and Amber, for the great pics and info! I really appreciate it!

    1. OMG, tell me about it! LOL!! I'm just now wrapping up my testing period on the Revlon Photoready BB Cream (review to come next week) and that product already seems "old" to me after posting about all of this brand new stuff! The good thing is that I can test different eyeshadows, liners, mascaras and lip colors all at once, so that cuts down on time a bit. :)

    2. I was about to type that! So much stuff to review! :p

      And I do have to say...only us beauty bloggers walk around the house with 2 different eye looks, 2 different cheek colors and maybe even 2 different lipsticks at once <3

    1. Darn. I was hoping that somehow they'd be like $6 so I could convince myself I didn't need them.

      $3? That's a freakin $1 per shadow :( I can't possibly say no to that!!

  3. Boy, I hope this is the sign of a trend to NOT make all eye shadows so shimmer- and sparkle-heavy. I'm sick of not being able to find stylish colors that aren't loaded with glitter/shimmer. Will definitely look for these, thanks!

  4. The trios are gorgeous! I'm already thinking of looks using those <3

  5. I love the new mascara they have in this collection. The only difference between this one and the one
    In the pink tube is the brush. This one is curved. I passed on all the rest of the items. I saw the display at Kmart along with the Maybelline vibrant lipstick collection. I use both mascaras and love them!

  6. Not that I will be able to wear them (contact lenses and all) but I really want to see the Sparkle Eye Dust in person!

  7. The trios remind me of WetnWild. Only good thing about these are they are more matte not so much shimmer.

  8. found the display at HEB, got the mascara and it was ok but the pink tube works much better for me.

  9. I purchased the late night latte trio and I am sooo disappointed in it! I thought they would be very pigmented and the only color that the pigmentation was ok oas the highlight color. I bought one of the eye dusts and a lip product also but I haven't tried them yet! If I still had my receipt I would return the shadows and try another set to see if maybe the colors I choose we're just duds.

  11. I am getting one of these totally free in my jolly voxbox, I hope they are as good as wet and wild trios, but Ive read some reviews that say they aren't very pigmented and that there is a lot of fallout. Hope it isn't true!
