Salt New York is a small, indie makeup brand based out of – you guessed it – New York City. The brand first caught my eye after seeing it on my Instagram explore page, and after scrolling through their photos I knew I had to try some products.
The brand produces two types of products: a chic magnetic palette encased in leather, and the Crème Tint Pro, which is a metal pan hand-filled with cream cheek product that fits into any empty magnetic palette.
For my first purchase I decided to pick up the mini palette, which holds four Crème Tint Pro pans or can also be used to hold single eyeshadows from any other brand. After trying the creams, I immediately knew I should’ve purchased the larger palette size – they’re that good.
I picked up four Crème Tint Pro shades: the Lip + Cheek in Rose, the Lip + Cheek in Peach, the Sculpt + Bronze in Light/Medium, and the Sculpt + Bronze in Contour. These seem sheer at first, but do not be fooled – these cream products pack a pigmented punch. They are 100% dupes for the Fenty Beauty Cheeks Out Cream Blushes and Bronzers. In fact, as much as I love the Fenty products (they are some of my favorite cheek products by far), I find myself reaching for my Salt New York palette more often because it’s so easy to have everything in one place.
I didn’t pick up any highlighters because I figured I had enough in my collection already, but now that I’ve fallen in love with the formula I definitely plan on buying some soon enough. I have my eye on the Crème Tint Pro in Radiant Beige and Radiant Pearl. I also think Radiant Bronze and Radiant Rust would be excellent dupes for the Tower28 Bronzino Illuminating Bronzer, a product that I love to use in the summer months. The Crème Tint Pro retails for $16 while Tower28’s bronzers cost $20 each.
