Grey Smoke featuring NYC Individualeyes Palette Dark Shadows

Remember that NYC palette I showed you in the video for the Influenster Beauty Bloggers VoxBox?

Here is a look that I wore recently using that palette.

I really liked this look.  A bit of drama, a bit of glam, and alot of smoke!

I did not use the primer in the palette for this look.  I tried that primer a few days ago and it did not work for me at all.  Bummer.  But I have really oily eyelids, so it may work better for others.  The cream highlighter is nice, it blends well and lasts all day, especially with the white shadow layered on top.

For this look I used:

Lauren Brooke Cream Foundation in N3

Lauren Brooke Cream Concealer in Warm Light – under eyes

Lauren Brooke Loose Powder foundation in Natural – lightly applied to set creams

Everyday Minerals Blush in Salon Fun (Discontinued 😦 )

Real Purity Eyeshadow Duo in Vanilla/Mocha – Mocha color – to fill brows

NYC Individualeyes Palette in Dark Shadows for eyes

essence liquid liner in Black  from my swap with lifeofbun – LOVE!

NYC Big Bold Ultra Volume Mascara in Black

Catrice Ultimate Color Lipstick in Frozen Rose  another product I love from lifeofbun

I got about 6 hours of wear before I noticed that the shadows were creasing.  I did  a quick touch-up.  About 3 hours later, I noticed that there was quite a bit of creasing but I was washing my face by that point anyway.

This was a fun palette to try.  The shadows have decent pigmentation and blend nicely.  They are pretty shimmery, but alot of that blends away to leave a nice sheen.

Thanks for stopping by!

Have a great day!
