Big Apple Blush is a pink creme blush. Although the name says Big "Apple", it is not much of an apple shade, but a lot pinker (almost like the inside of strawberries). It has a semi-matte finish, so it is not completely matte. It has a subtle sheen to it, but unlike Berry New Yorker, this does not have shimmer in it compared to Berry New Yorker. After using Berry New Yorker for a while, I finally decided to start using another one of the NYC creme blushes that I purchased. As of now, I believe they're still available at some Dollar Tree stores since I saw some this past week. The application of the Big Apple Blush is incredibly smooth. I thought the Berry New Yorker one had a smooth application, but this is way smoother & it blends a lot easier to me. When I first apply it, it looks like it can be a harsh pink, but after blending it out, it is a very wearable pink, which I like!
If you have a chance to still get this blush, I totally recommend it. The only downside to me is the smell. It smells like lipsticks that my mom used to buy when I was 5, which is kind of gross, but the scent does not transfer onto your skin after applying it. When compared to Berry New Yorker, this is definitely a brighter color, whereas Berry New Yorker is more brown-ish. What are your thoughts on the NYC Creme Blushes?
