N.Y.C. Custom Compacts

Rating: ♥♥ (Like it)


I usually don't buy many eyeshadows or eyeshadow palettes from the drugstore. I never know how good the quality or color pay off is going to be so most of the time I don't bother. These NYC palettes were actually discovered by my mom. She picked one up for me at RiteAid awhile back and after trying one I had to check out the others.


About the product...
These palettes are great for traveling and taking your makeup on-the-go. They come with 4 shadows, a primer, and an illuminator. The colors were created to coordinate with your eye color but I just buy the ones I like regardless of who they're meant for.

I have Union Square (for brown eyes), Bryant Park (for blue eyes), and Smokey Browns (for brown eyes).

What I think...
The shadows have good color pay off. The primer has a waxy texture to it and it works as a good basic primer. The only thing I'm on the fence about is the illuminator. It has a clumpy texture and looks very frosty so you have to be careful with how much you apply. 

Overall...
I think these are great all-in-one products. They fit easily in your purse and work well enough for quick makeup looks. Best of all, they're very inexpensive!
