Spotted: NYC Spring 2015 Limited Edition Makeup Your Spring Collection (PS: the Blushable Creme Sticks are Back!)

I've got some VERY exciting news for you today, if you are still mourning the loss of the NYC Blushable Creme Sticks (discontinued in early 2012). If you're a longtime reader of this blog, then you know that I LOVED the Blushable Creme Sticks and I was so sad to see them go (I wasn't the only one who loved them--they have an average rating of 4.4 out of 5 stars over on Makeup Alley).

So when reader @macah0lick on Instagram told me that some Blushable Creme Sticks are in the new NYC Spring 2015 collection, I just couldn't believe it! Luckily, she also shared lots of great pics with us, so you can see for youself. Take a look!

Oh, and in case you missed the announcment back in September, Demi Lovato is the first-ever Global Brand Amabassador for NYC. I think this is the first display we've seen her on so far--please correct me if I'm wrong!

Keep reading for a look at this new collection...


@macah0lick spotted this collection at Kmart this week:

NYC Spring 2015 Limited Edition Makeup Your Spring Collection at Kmart

Notice the $1 off tear-pad coupons on the display (good through June 6).

Naturally, I want to start with the blush sticks. Notice the packaging (size, shape) is identical to the original Blushable Creme Sticks. However, they have a different name:

NYC BB Beautifying Blushable Creme Sticks
002 Never Sleeping Pink, 001 Soho Pink

@macah0lick said she did NOT see the words "limited edition" anywhere on the packaging (usually NYC indicates when something is limited edition on the packaging, like they did with these Blushable Creme Sticks back in 2012). BUT, the display itself says "Limited Edition," so I'm not quite sure what to make of these. Are they introducing a whole new, permanent line via these two shades, or are these the only two we'll get? Only time will tell...

NYC City Proof Twistable Intense Lip Colors

Next up, we have three new shades of City Proof Twistable Intense Lip Colors:

003 Raspberry Juice, 002 Dragon Fruit, 001 Peach Smoothie

These are definitely new shades, but I don't know if they're limited edition (no indication on the packaging, but again, the display itself says "Limited Edition").

NYC In a Minute Quick Dry Nail Polish

These are definitely new shades but, again, no indication as to whether or not they're limited edition. I'm guessing they are limited edition based on the numbering (see below), since the permenent shades are all numbered in the 200s, but you never know.

003 Volcanic Orange, 001 Blue Lagoon , 002 Pink Moon

NYC Limited Edition IndividualEyes Palette in 001 Pastel Rainbow

No question with these IndividualEyes palettes--they are definitely limited edition and say so right on the packaging.

NYC City Proof Color Mascara
(blue shade: name unknown; purple shade: 003 Purple Breeze)

And last but not least, we have two City Proof Color Mascaras. Again, I have no idea  if these are limited edition or new additions to the permanent line. We'll have to wait and see!

Have you spotted this display in your area yet? Thoughts? Now that Rite Aid is no longer carrying NYC, it's become more challenging to find the limited edition collections. I know that CVS sometimes get the LE collections, so if you don't live near a Kmart (where @macah0lick found this display), try CVS and hopefully you'll be able to find it there.

Thanks again, @macah0lick, for the great sighting, pics and info. I really appreciate it!

  3. Yay! I love me some NYC. I can't wait to get those twistable lip colors! I'm in love with that product but the existing shades lineup doesn't have much I like. I'll probably snap up the Pastel Rainbow eyeshadow quad, as well as a couple of the nail polishes.

    1. I'd love to know what you think of those lip shades when you find them! I have my eye on the raspberry one. :)

  4. It says Limited Edition at the top right of the display...I wonder if that means it's all limited edition? That would be a shame if so!

    1. Yep, I mentioned that in my blurb about the cheek sticks, but I'm so confused because the older LE cheek sticks clearly said LE on the wrappers. I don't want to assume these are permanent, but only the shadow palettes actually say LE. BUT, again, the polishes are numbered differently than the core line, which makes me think those are LE even though they don't say LE. I just don't know what to think! Lol.

  5. But I don't have a Kmart near me! They all closed. Will this be at CVS also??? I always wanted to try one of the blush cream sticks.

    1. Yep, I mentioned that sometimes CVS gets the LE collections, so HOPEFULLY they get this one. My fingers are crossed for you!

    2. I found these at a CVS near me- I bought the blushes, the eye shadows as well as a Raspberry Juice lip color (the other two were gone).

  6. Pink Moon looks a lot like the shade Moma, which i don't know if it's discontinued but I can't find it anywhere :/. It's my favorite and I only have like a little bit left! Definitely checking out it this week!

  8. I heard through the grapevine that NYC is being discontinued at Rite Aid, if that's true I'm bummed :(

    1. Yes, I mentioned this previously and again in this post. It's true--they no longer are going to carry NYC. So sad!! :(

  9. I didn't know NYC had the spring collection already! ! Thanks for the heads up! I missed the Halloween one, so hopefully I can spot this in my local area! It's too bad Rite-Aid doesn't carry this brand anymore. It's going to be hard finding the limited edition displays now. :(

  10. I'm loving those polish and eyeshadow colors! Even better that the nail polish is quick-dry and the shadow sets include primer and liner!

    1. Nannies... meant jammies.


      Found display. Bought nail polishes. Left the rest. Wasn't sure if I should use the blushes. Would they break me out?

  12. My Kmart had it!! I got the blush sticks, and already used Never Sleeping Pink and OHMIGOD!!!! Love it :) They're very pigmented :)

  13. I'm hoping to find this display somewhere other than K-Mart, since we don't have any around here. I'm really excited about the lip colors. I'll buy anything with the name dragonfruit!

  14. They've had these NYC BB blush sticks in the UK since maybe last year, and they are the exact same colors too! I think they are finally re-releasing these here again, yay! :)
