Hi loves β™₯ I just came back from New York City and I had such a great time! I had a list of things I wanted to do while in the city and of course that involved makeup! I always heard of Ricky’s NYC and I follow them on instagram. I knew it was a beauty store but I wasn’t aware of all the brands they carried. I was on a budget so I had to pick some key items I’ve been wanting. Swatches and reviews will follow. 

The first item I knew I needed to get was the Forbidden Fruits Palette by Sauce Box Cosmetics. I’ve heard great things about this brand and the palette did not disappoint, I love how the shades compliment green eyes well.

Very pigmented and creamy ($40.00)
I was very excited to see that the store carried Gerard Cosmetics Hydra-Matte Liquid Lipsticks since their one of my favorite formulas. They had one color in stock called Aphrodite (peachy nude) I also picked up two of Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tars in the colors Structure (greige taupe) and Synth (metallic pink peachy gold) This formula is amazing and last all day. I want to try more colors.

The last item I picked up was for fun because it’s a Korean brand, Pure Smile Lip Scrub in Peach Milk. I have been using this every night and so far really enjoy it. My lips feel smoother and softer in the morning.
