I bought this today. The LE one called Pink Flash. I always wanted something coral for a blush, and this one has no shimmer so its great for my oily acne prone skin with huge pores & scars. I use a matte powder blush over it but I think they are wearable on their own. I did buy it however for 3-4 dollars not the deal that some people got on them because of sales. But I just grabbed it since I wanted this particular color & there were only 2 left.

Thanks to all the amazing reviews on here, I went out to walmart and got both plaza pink and big apple blush. It goes on smoothly and blends easily with a blush brush. The lasting power I would say maybe isn't 12 hours or anything like that, but I am still very impressed with this product for under $4! These two colors are very pretty and very wearable for day or night. Definitley a must have for any makeup collection. Thanks to these I am interested in trying more and more creme blushes!

I have this in South St. Seashell, which suits my NC43 skintone. I personally feel like most of the other ones are too light for me (Plaza Pink etc) and the ones that aren't are not my colors. I'm really interested in the LE shades but can't find them.
Anyways, this a great product at a great price. Provides a nice wash of color for the cheeks and a great drugstore cream blush! I also like the packaging. I swipe across each cheekbone then blend with my fingertips, also great if you are in a rush.
NYC, please release more bright pigmented shades! Make the LE colors perm! :)

I LOVE THESE! I own every color that will work with my fair skin well some are very bright (the LE ones) but it is all in how you apply them!!
I have 2 videos on my youtube channel if you want to see swatches (goldenappleoferis) Anywho....
The color range of these a FAB! The LE ones were far brighter then the normal range but if you apply a bit and use a duo fiber brush to buff it out you get a beautiful cheek :-)
I normally always top these with something and it makes my blush last ALL DAY!
These are VERY good for traveling! I taken them to pop on after I have gone swimming cause they are easy and I know they wont let me down.
They were hard to find when they first were releasesd but now I am seeing them EVERYWHERE!! :-)
The price is FANTASTIC for the amount of product that you get! I will never run out thankfully cause I like them that much <3
Some of my fav colors have to be
Pink Flash (LE)- Not pink very much its more like a pinkish coral but looks fantastic on!!
South St Seashell- I use this on days where I dont want much on the cheeks it is like a bronzie peachy color I put Hard Candy Pin Up blush over it and it looks amazing
Big Apple Blush- now this one is more pinky on me kinda like the name an apple color but not too red so dont be scared!!
Plaza Pink- The most popular one LOL I like this a lot for a not to over the top look it is NOT pink at all! This color is peach all the way! I use a peach colored blush over or something like NARS orgasm or ELF contour blush palette.
I hope this helps someone wondering about these cause they are AMAZING and I am so glad that I have them. Great deal great makeup lasts well GREAT colors you get a lot of product and most of all it looks GREAT!!

I own it in South St. Seashell and it is nicely pigmented and goes on smooth,since im dark skinned,this color dosent show up to its full ability,but layered with a powder blush it is pretty.

Yes, I would buy again...and yes I bought again and again (I have three now). These are wonderful and cheap and beautiful and fun. For oily acne prone skin, these are great because they have a powdery like finish and go on sheer so they are easy to work with and perfect for the summer (I hate wearing heavy colors and heavy make-up during the summer). For some reason, I am totally feeling creamy products this summer, my powdery products feel too heavy in this humid heat. These blushers are amazing for everyday weekend wear. Also, they serve as perfect bases to set powdery blush. I am currently loving the south street seashell under mac mineralized blush happy together...absolutely beautiful bronzey pinky browney tone. I would recommend these to anyone!!

i have the limited edition color called Pink Flash and i absolutely love it. it looks super bright in the tube but if you use it the right way it gives you a beautiful healthy flush. First, i dampen a cosmetic triangle sponge and dab it on the blush. then i dab it on my face that i have allready put foundation on. (NOT POWDER YET!!). Then i blend the blush out, after that i set all my makeup with powder. (Maybelline dream matte powder). If you try to put the blush over powder it wont blend nicely and it will look cakey. Overall i LOVE this blush! Get it while you can!!! :)

AWEOSME AWESOME AWESOME!!! blends beautifully, GREAT pigmentation, feels like silk on the skin, lasts all day, CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP only about $3.50 at cvs :) I am thrilled to have found a wonderful blush stick and it is so dirt cheap!! THANK YOU NYC!!

EDIT (04/11/2012): I swapped away Plaza Pink because I didn't really care for the frosty-ness of it, so that one is out of the picture, haha. I still own Pink Flash and it's something that I keep in my purse with my travel makeup, more than anything. I also do not apply this straight on my cheeks anymore...I find that it's quite too pigmented if you apply it that way and it'll seem like someone has just slapped you on your cheeks, lol. I find that putting a bit of product on the back of your hand and using a blush brush, THEN applying it to your face makes the color a bit more subtle and easier to apply. It's not as intense (as the color is a hot pink) if you use it with a brush and it's likely to last you a long time :)
I own two of these (at the moment), Pink Flash and Plaza Pink (swapping). Although it is a LE item, Pink Flash is amazing! I don't really understand why people say that it's a coral shade because it absolutely isn't. It's pretty much a hot pink color, but you can blend it out to a beautiful shade. You don't have to use that much product (apply it on your finger and blend it on the apples of your cheeks), so it should last foreverrrrrr. Plaza Pink, just wasn't my favorite because it just seems to "pink" for me; frosty, shimmery blushes aren't my thing, but it is pretty despite the fact that I don't like it on me. These are $4 a piece where I live and they are quite difficult to find here but I think they are definitely worth it. If you can get your hands on the LE ones, you really should when you can because they are awesome!

I have this in Big Apple Blush, and the color is soo gorgeous; its a peachy coral color. This will stay on your cheeks like all day, this depends on your skin type. I've heard it doesn't stay on oily skin. This is my first creme blush and I love this!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Dry, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
I have this in Plaza Pink and I love it! It's a great blush for summer, somewhere between pink and coral, so it goes well under a lot of blushes. It also wears very nicely on its own. I put it on before I set my foundation and it still shows through without piling the color. It stays on all day through work as well. I apply it with a synthetic blush brush.
The only downer I can think of is that I can only find it at Ulta, which is already far from my mom's and I'm moving in September so it'll be even further away.

I have these in Wild Berry, Plaza Pink, Berry New Yorker and South St. Seashell. Like most here, Plaza Pink is my favorite. I have never used cream type blushes before as I have quite oily skin and I really didn't think that they would work for me. These are so cheap and I heard good things about them so I decided to give them a shot. These, for the price, are really amazing. They are very well pigmented and they blend beautifully. Used with a powder over top they will stay on all day, even on my oily skin. There is a lot of product (.28 oz) and you need so little that they will last a long time. I have never paid much attention to N.Y.C. but I'm very impressed with these and will be trying out other things from their line.

**Background info**: So I purchased this in plaza pink (one of the creme blushes in the permanent line) and for all you Canadian girls hunting for this, I found mine at Walmart (for $3.57 CDN) and I''m pretty sure it's available at Rexall and Zellers as well :)
**Description**: A pretty and cute corally pink with a tiny amount of shimmer but not too much or overwhelming at all. I would compare plaza pink to the limited edition pink flash as a more toned down and more natural verson of the pink flash (though the pink flash is more matte) as they are both almost the same color? A very summery kind of corally pink.
**Pros**: Very good color payoff. The color is absolutely beautiful and perfect for everyday use! The formula is actually extremely creamy and definitely easy to blend. It's also very buildable and the look you can achieve with blush can range from a natural flush for everyday to a vibrant pink coral color in your face kind of nighttime look. I'm also extremely sensitive (my face is prone to breakouts, stinging, irritation, redness, clogged pores etc. etc. ) so I'm always very cautious before trying a new product and this product HAPPILY does not clog my pores or break me out at all whatsover and it doesn't emphasize any blemishes I have either! ++ oh and one more thing, DIRT CHEAP! ($3.57 CDN)
**Cons**: Staying power is not a great as I would like, it's decent I guess..but what do you expect for a $3 blush? After 3-4 hours the color was half as vibrant compared to when I first applied it in the morning. I used my HG setting powder and oil control stuff E.L.F. High definition powder and it was one of the hottest days of a Canadian summer! (30C outside) Also, I was really hoping to get my hands on one of the limited edition colors PINK FLASH but I couldn't find it! I don't know if it's available in Canada. Does anyone know? It would be really helpful because I'm dying to get my hands on this before I move to Saudi in 3 weeks!!!
**What I think**: I heard the limited edition colors are creamier, have better staying powder, and are more matte but I have yet to find them :( it was kind of embarassing while I was at Walmart staring at the NYC makeup section in disbelief with my jaw dropped for clearly 5 minutes or so and then bugging the sales clerk "are you 100% absolutely positively SURE you don't have the LE colors?!?!?" Oh and she was unpacking these new boxes of arrivals onto the shelves too so I was sitting on the floor literally like staring at her unpack the boxes waiting and praying to the makeup gods that she might have the LEs for like 15 freaking minutes but nooooo!!! T.T
**In the future**: I'm going to try layering on a wetnwild blush in berry shimmer which I've always wanted just to make the blush last longer and be more vibrant. I think the combo would be good because they're both pinks with gold undertones. AND I'll NEVER stop until I find those LEs!! ^.^

These were really difficult to find in my area, but once found, I didn't hesitate to pick up a few in different shades, as they're cheap enough ($3.99 CDN).
My current favourite shade is Plaza Pink, and like others have said, it is creamy, blendable and highly pigmented. I brought this on a recent trip to a hot place, and it held up incredibly well through water activities in both salt and fresh water and sweat. Rather than applying directly onto my face from the stick, or using fingers, I use a sponge and swipe the blush twice before dabbing the color onto my cheeks. It applies evenly and smoothly, without any harsh lines or too much color concentration in one area. It is easy to remove and my only worry is that if I run out (a little goes a long way) I won't be able to find it again!

I Love love love these!!! I use them with my Mac 187se brush, I just rub the brush over the top to pick up the color, then blend onto my cheeks, and it is the most amazing easy to blend, natural looking blush, and it lasts ALL DAY!! I can't say enough about them, I like them all but I think my favorite shade is South St. Seashell!!! It's just perfect for every day wear and goes with every look! =)

I lovelovelove this product! I love wearing blush because I love feeling fresh and glowy, but I can never find any product that does what I want - gives me a glow, blends easily, and works with my skin tone. I found all of that in this blush.
The colour that I have is Big Apple Blush and like a few others have said, it seems to be a universally flattering shade. It makes me glow and application is a breeze. I just glide the stick over my cheeks to my temples and blend wih my fingers. It looks so natural and stays on the whole day, so I never have to worry about if it's still on. I get many complements on how nice I look when I wear this! And it's a simple enough colour that I can wear it everyday. I can't wait to try more from this line. The colour, application, and price are fantastic. Thank you NYC!

WOW!!! I saw the MUA reviews and a few gurus on YouTube raved about these too, so when I saw them at Walmart for $3.98, I just had to get a couple. I got Plaza Pink and Big Apple Blush, the other colors they had looked brown and too bronzy for my fair skin. Just like everyone says, these are really great cream blushes. Texture is very creamy, very pigmented but also blend out really well, I use my fingers or a blush brush. Staying power is great too, lasted all day, even in 100+ heat and humidity! The Plaza Pink is a nice, peachy/pink color, not as coral-y as the Pink Splash that was an LE color but really nice for summer (looks great with NYC bronzer in Sunny). The Big Apple Blush is more of a pinky, berry color which I think would be better for cooler months, as I like the peaches and light pinks for summer and the berry look more for fall/winter. All in all, a great product at a great price!

My Favorites so far are Plaza Pink and Big Apple Blush

Excellent blushes for such a great price. I got mine for $3.99 at my local Rite-Aid and i got it in 4 colors. My favorite is Plaza Pink. I use either my fingers or a MAC 130 brush to apply and blend the blush onto my cheeks. It gives a very nice and natural color and lasts a long time if you set it with translucent powder. I love it and probably won't run out anytime soon since it comes with so much product.
