I don’t buy makeup too often because I just like and very contented with my makeup-less look. However, there are times when I do buy because I like the shimmery effect, the creaminess and softness it feels on my face. NYC New York Color HD Color Trio Eye Shadow is like that.
I received this NYC HD Color Trio (Long Beach Sands) from Influenster as part of the JollyVoxBox campaign. I tried it several times to gauge the velvety texture when applied on the lids. I honestly like it. It is smooth and has that shimmer effect which I love in eyeshadows.
I also like the fact that it is a great makeup for achieving that smoky eyes effect. I love the look of smoky eyes and it makes my eyes mysterious and yet glam at the same time.
The NYC New York Color HD Color Trio Eye Shadow (Long Beach Sands) is the perfect color of choice. I love neutrals and earthy tones and this makeup palette is just fabulous.
Now, for the nitty-gritty details, here are my findings:
What I like:
Color! I just love neutrals so much. It blends well with my skin tone.
The velvety texture when applied either with a sponge applicator (as provided in the makeup palette) or with small eyeshadow brush.
It has the shimmer effect I like in eyeshadows.
It does stay a bit longer than usual. I applied mine around noon today and by 5 p.m., the eyeshadow was still very visible.
It is easily removed with a makeup remover.
It is fragrant-free. I try my best to not use makeups with overpowering scent. I stick with the non-scented ones most of the time.
What I don’t like:
It tends to get loose and powdery so you can’t take it anywhere because the palette may break.
The makeup container does not have a mirror. You have to grab one if you want to apply this makeup eyeshadow.
Comes in 3 colors for highlighting, balancing and for the crease in earthy tones with a 2-sided sponge applicator and plastic/transparent cover.
Pegged at $2.99 in most retail outlets, pharmacies, department stores
Yes. This is a good product except for the minor set backs. I do recommend this product.
I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
