I’ve done it again. You may remember a post I did a few weeks back about the NYC Individual Eyes palette. I was super impressed with the ease of use and the wearable shades. So, when I saw a display jam packed with their newest Individual Eyes palette….well, I couldn't resist. (How many times have I said that? And how many times will I say it again in the future? So many questions!)
Yes, I bought another NYC palette. This one is called “Best of Broadway” and was created for Brown Eyes. Okay, so I don’t have brown eyes, but I certainly love the eyeshadow shades! There was something about the earthy tones that stood out to me.
Like the other NYC palette, this one includes a shimmery cream illuminator and a neutral eyeshadow primer. Defintely a fan of these. It’s not that they're the best ever, but it’s nice to have them in the palette. So handy!
Now onto the shadows. There are four here: a highlighter, all over lid, crease, and contour shade. The highlighter is a shimmery champagne, the all over lid colour is a shimmery goldish peach, the crease shade is rust, and the contour is an olive green. The pigmentation is similar to the other palette I tried – quite good. Not incredible but there is definitely some good colour payoff. (Using the primer really helps to make them pop!)
The colours themselves are gorgeous. I love how the shades work together to create a dramatic but wearable makeup look. In general, I am a big fan of browns and bronzes, so these earth toned shades are definitely within my comfort zone. There is just something about the colours that makes me happy!
Overall, I am quite happy with this palette. I knew what to expect going in, so that helped. I just love these pretty shades. In fact, I think I prefer this eyeshadow quad to the first one I tried! It is definitely great when you’re on the go or need to get ready quickly. What can I say…..I love NYC!
Have you tried this makeup palette? What do you think of the colours?
