New York Color Compact
The pigmentation is amazing!! It’s really pigmented and the colors are very long-lasting. I found the eye shadows to be really smooth and soft. I was a little hesitant when I saw the black shade because it had glitter in it, so I was expecting it to be gritty. So it was a nice surprise when I swatches it and felt how soft they all are.
There was not a lot of fallout, I only noticed a tiny amount of fallout but that was easy to fix with a little bit of foundation.
I also, liked the primer and the cream illuminator that came with it. Once I put the primer on, it dried to a nice matte finish. The illuminator is so versatile. Not only can you use it on your eyes but also it can be used as a highlighter for your nose, cheekbones, etc. It would be great if they sold these products alone.
I really love this palette, and it’s such a steal for $4.99. You will defiantly get your moneys worth and then some. I will be going to the store to pick up the other shades that they have.NYC New York Color IndividualEyes Custom Compact | NYC New York Color’s all-in-one compact gives you everything you need for a complete eye look: primer, illuminator, applicator and complementing shadows.
