Mini Review: NYC New York Color IndividualEyes Custom Compact

Hello again beauties!! My Beauty Blogger VoxBox has been getting a lot of love since I have been writing reviews on all the products from that box. This is my review for the NYC New York Color IndividualEyes Custom Compact. This was sent to me from Influenster, completely complimentary for the purpose of reviewing. Time to get into it!
This compact was made for brown eyes. It comes with two matte colors, two slightly shimmery colors, a primer base, and an illuminator.

The back of the compact even has suggestions on how to apply the eyeshadows. This custom compact retails for about $4.99.

This is the completed look. It did take a bit to achieve this look, because the purple eyeshadow was a difficult consistency to apply and blend. I made it work by masking the creased imperfections with the brown shimmer color. I applied it heavily in my crease after applying the purple, and it came out quite nicely. The little brush wasn't very useful, but I'm never a fan of those types of applicators anyways. The primer base had a really smooth and creamy texture, and it was easy to blend. However, the lasting power is not great. It creased a couple hours into my day, which I was disappointed about. I did find that packing extra on the lid and crease did help it last longer.
Other than that, I really enjoy the colors of the palette. I think the colors really do compliment my eye color, especially for Fall and Winter.
This is a look I will definitely be recreating over and over, because I really love the blend of purple and shimmer brown. It's almost like a purple smokey eye, but it isn't too dark at all.
Overall, I really enjoyed this palette. The purple color is not my favorite texture in powder, but it's very easy to hide the purple imperfections with the brown shimmer. I think for the price, this is definitely a fun palette to have, especially since it is catered toward the different eye colors. I hope this review was helpful!

Thank you so much for the support!! 'Til next time loves, MUAH!
