As an eyeshadow addict I admit I’m a bit of a snob. I usually spend my time perusing Ulta and Sephora rather than CVS and Walmart. It’s almost always eyeshadows that attract me first. My rather large collection has price points that include $1 shadows, $5 shadows, $12 palettes, $25 + single eyeshadows, and $45 and up eyeshadow palettes. So why am I stuck on two NYC IndividualEYES Eyeshadow Palettes?
First reason is that I am crazy about the NYC Lovatics by Demi Nude Palette and wear it all the time. Since I received that palette my opinion about NYC Cosmetics has dramatically changed. When I was offered other NYC products to test I happily agreed. And of course I started with the two eyeshadow palettes: Pink Nudes and Bronze Nudes.
These palettes have everything you need for a complete eye look: 4 eyeshadows, eyeshadow primer, gel eyeliner, and highlighter. The eyeshadows include an All Over Lid matte shade, Crease shade, Outline color, and a Highlighter shadow. I don’t necessarily use these in that order though. I like to use the crease shade on my eyelid, the outline shade in the crease, and the highlight color on my browbone.
There are 3 IndividualEYES Eye Shadow Palettes in the nude shades (along with 5 more colorful choices): Pink Nudes, Bronze Nudes, and Beige Nudes. Wearing Pink or Bronzes Nudes gives me a very soft eye yet there’s enough pigment to the colors that they don’t disappear. I’m over the smokey eye right now, it just doesn’t feel right to me with warm weather clothes. These palettes fit the bill perfectly.
Pink Nudes is a cooler palette with matte pinky brown, lightly shimmered pink brown, taupe, and a slightly darker brown that blends beautifully with the shades. It’s a seamless look. The 3 shadows are satiny without shimmer.
The right side of all these palettes has a great eyeshadow primer, a brown gel cream eyeliner, and a highlighter that is frosty. I’m very impressed with the primer and use it with these shadows and others. The gel liner is very creamy and can smear. My advice with it is to let it set before you curl your lashes or apply mascara. Once set it lasts well, especially on the top lash line. The illuminator is very creamy and blends well. It adds a touch of shimmer to your look.
Bronze Nudes has a similar configuration with warmer shades that are neutral. I tend to skip the matte shade in both of these but I do prefer the one in Bronze Nudes over the Pink Nudes one. The highlight shade is a shiny cream, the crease color is a light golden taupe while the outline shade is a golden bronze. None of these apply dark but you can build them up if you want more color.
