NYC Cosmetics returns to (some) CVS locations!

Huge news here, NYC cosmetics fans! But let me back up a moment for a recap:

Last year, NYC cosmetics disappeared from some CVS locations. In its place, CVS put up new Wet n Wild displays. So for months now, it's been an either/or situation. Some regions have full Wet n Wild displays, while others have full NYC displays. I have never heard from a single person who has both a full WnW display and a full NYC display at their local CVS.

But yesterday, longtime reader Tammie told me that her CVS was in the midst of putting up a brand new NYC display, in addition to the existing Wet n Wild display. In other words, she now has both brands at her CVS!

If you live in a region where your CVS locations only carry Wet n Wild, I really hope this means that you'll soon have a full NYC display too! I'm in San Diego and the CVS locations here only carry Wet n Wild (the NYC displays were taken down last year as mentioned above) so you can be sure I'll be on the hunt for these new NYC displays--I'll let you know if/when I find them!

Thanks so much for the great heads-up and pic, Tammie!


  1. I really hope they will. I hate having to go to another store just to get the one NYC thing that I want -.-

  2. I saw the same empty display at my CVS yesterday!

  3. Yes! PLEASE NYC AND CVS! Hate going all the way to Rite-Aid when CVS is only a few blocks from where I live.

  4. I'm near Sacramento and I also saw one of the CVS's here setting up a big new NYC display on Sunday!

  5. Oh yay! More brands at more places is always a plus :)

  6. My area's the total opposite! I have to go two towns over to Walgreens just to find Wet & Wild. Every CVS and Rite Aid within a 10 mile radius is NYC all the way. I really hope this new display trend works the other way as well! 😄

  7. The CVS stores in my area do carry NYC. They do carry the Spoiled nail polihes and I will occasionally see Wet and Wild nail polishes (like those buckets of polish) or kits. But when I was there a couple of weeks ago, I found the Cover All Cream Foundation and the powder, and a display of WnW mascaras. So I'm wondering if we will be getting more WnW, which would be great.

  8. I'm in San Diego too. They have NYC and WnW now at the CVS in Loma Portal (off Rosecrans and Midway). That was the best surprise last week.

  9. Mine has wet n wild and today had a partially stocked NYC display aaaaaaand a Physicians Formula display.

  10. *hmm* That must be a city or regional thing.... here, my CVSes carry NYC, but not Wet n' Wild. If I want Wet n' Wild, I need to go to Walgreens.

  11. Oh, I hope Walgreens will do the same. We have a CVS (actually, I think we have two), but it's a much farther walk.

  12. Here in Atl my CVS carries both, but I have noticed the WNW is always trashed out. So I hardly step foot in seems lately Walgreens carries all the new products. but the good thing They are right across the street from each other. So will def take a peek today! But then again Ulta is only 1/4 of a mile up the road, and they are fully stocked on NYX, either way exciting news!!!

  13. I'm in San Diego and I saw a totally empty NYC display just like the one in the photo at the CVS at Pomerado and Poway Road yesterday. I wasn't sure what was up, but this sounds like good news!

  14. I'm really looking forward to this! I just hope my CVS joins in, but I won't get my hopes since I live in the country :/

  15. LUCKY! ALL the cvs'saround me ONLY have nyc! i was never really interested because i don't think nyc i s a really good brand.. RECOMMENDATIONS TO TRY??!?!

  16. Mine has been up for about 2 weeks now!
