|This is NYC Smooth Skin BB Radiance Perfecting Powder. Notice the pale beige tone in 001 Naturally Beige in the compact.|
Since I really loved NYC New York Color Smooth Skin BB Cream for the quality of its glowing, dewy coverage, I just had to see how their newly launched Smooth Skin BB Radiance Perfecting Powder compared. I was sent the lightest shade of this compact in 001 Naturally Beige instead of the darker, 002 Warm Beige to review.
You can use this powder alone for evening out your complexion. It does give a smooth finish without looking powdery even with dry skin. I liked how well it hid flaws and gave a decent amount of coverage using this one product. If you want longer lasting coverage than a few hours, you can use this powder over your BB Cream or foundation and be quite happy with it–-that is, if you have the coloring to wear it.
In the compact, 001 Naturally Beige appeared a paler beige. What I did not like was the unnatural orange color of the shade once it went on the face. After it touched the skin, the beige seemed to turn into something darker and quite orange. This is the lightest choice and hardly one suitable for fair to light complexions.

I do not know how the 002 Warm Beige shade will perform. Perhaps, it will stay fairly close to the color in the compact. Then again, it may also change color depending on your skin as it did mine.
NYC New York Color Smooth BB Cream is fantastic and a real steal at $3.99. However, the company needs to add a pale shade and a lighter shade without letting it become so orange. Other than that, Smooth Skin BB Radiance Perfecting Powder ($3.99) is a wonderful drugstore product.
