Beauty on a Budget: NYC Color Sparkle Eye Dust

I love a good beauty splurge as much as the next product junkie, but with 3 daughters who appear to be following closely in my cosmetics loving footsteps, finding budget friendly items is definitely a must! Plus, I'm always on the look out for products that are age appropriate and suitable for Peyton's burgeoning foray into the world of wearing makeup. NYC New York Color's newly revamped Sparkle Eye Dust {retail for $2.99 each; sent for the purpose of review} are the perfect product for her {and I'll admit they make a cameo appearance in my makeup bag from time to time as well}!

The newly revamped Sparkle Eye Dusts enhance your eyes with sparkle, shine, and a beautiful pearlescent finish. The pigmentation on most of them is stellar {I find a bit of an issue with sheerness and fallout with the darker shades} and I find them to be quite versatile. I prefer to use them to highlight my browbone and inner tear duct, while Peyton uses them sheered out for a light wash of all over lid color. Featuring a new, improved formula that delivers more intense color and luminescent pearl shimmer, this radiant eye dust makes it easy to achieve a stunning eye look. The revamped applicator ensures effortless, precise application for a truly eye-opening effect.

AVAILABLE SHADES: Amber Glitz, Amethyst Dazzle, Aquamarine Sparkle, Brilliant Sapphire, Bronze Shimmer, Diamond Dust, Golden Champagne, Opal Sparkle, Pink Topaz, Smokey Topaz

What's your favorite "beauty on a budget" buy? What products do you recommend for Peyton? My inquiring mind wants to know! Leave a comment below and let me know what you think! Until next time...


  1. Isn't it nice that you ladies get to share your fondness for makeups? That's so fun! For makeup beginners, I do highly recommend Wet n Wild eyeshadows and lippies. They are very affordable with commendable quality.

  2. Wow these are beautiful and so affordable! I would have to say my budget buy are NYX lipsticks. xo Kelly http://chicnstylishblog.blogspot.com/
