NYC Colors- Holiday Eye

NYC New York Colors- Individual Eyes Dark
with Stila, Maybelline, N.Y.C.

  In the 2012 Beauty Blogger VoxBox from Influenster was the above Individual Eyes from NYC Colors.  You've probably seen this drugstore brand at Target, Walgreens, etc and I have a couple of items from the line (12hr lip stain is AMAZING) but, I am always a little leery of drugstore eye shadows because they tend to be very powdery and not long lasting.  I was very, very surprised by the pigment of this shadow and the length of wear.  The kit is essentially a do-it-yourself for the eye.  It comes with an cream eye primer (I would compare this to NYX eye primer) and a cream illuminate (NOT.A.CLUE!) The shadow quad includes a very nice highlighter, all over shade, and two crease contour shades.  I was able to create a subtle day look with this, but just by using the darkest contour shade you can go from day to night!

As you saw in an earlier post- I am a long time fan of Falsies by Maybelline and the Stila eye liner marker is a super fast way to line your eyes.

Can YOU believe we are already into the holiday season? What's your favorite way to dress up your make-up routine?
