Review & Swatchfest: NYC New York Color IndividualEyes Custom Palette in Dark Shadows

NYC Individual Eyes Palette in Dark Shadows
 NYC New York Color IndividualEyes Custom Compact in Dark Shadows isn't your typical drugstore quad. In addition to having four shadows, three shades of grey and one frosted white, it also includes an eye primer and cream highlight. What's more is that while some quads retail for upwards of $10, this is only $4.99.

Each of the shadows is pretty pigmented, although the darkest grey left a little something to be desired. Still, the textures were smooth, and they applied evenly. This particular palette will appeal to those who love a traditional grey and black smoky eye, but those who typically shy away from them shouldn't hesitate to check this palette out. Each shade can be worn sheered out or built up to get anything from a subtly highlighted eye to an extreme smoky eye. Those who prefer warm neutrals shouldn't nix this palette either. Personally, I prefer warmer, brown-toned smoky eyes because blacks and greys tend to look harsh on my skin. However, I was pleasantly surprised with the way this looked on my skin.

The primer does its job as a tacky medium to blend shadows over for more pigmentation, but it does crease within 4-5 hours of wear. I don't consider my eyes to be particularly greasy, so those that have oilier lids will want to keep an extra base around. The highlighter, on the other hand is great not only on brow bones, but as a face highlight as well! Still, it has the same consistency as the primer, so I wouldn't count on it to stay crease-free when using it under shadows.

While I recently received this in an Influenster VoxBox to test and review, I've had this palette for a few months and have even done a $20 makeup challenge using it. I love the results and, moreover, loved the price considering the amount of product you get. Get more information on the New York Color Website, or find your own at drugstores!
