Influenster Beauty Blogger Vox Box: NYC New York Color IndividualEyes

Hey guys!

Longest name ever, right? This is one of the items I received in my Beauty Blogger VoxBox from Influenster.

I'm going to use the information that came on the info card:

The NYC New York Color IndividualEyes Custom Compact is an all-in-one compact that comes with everything you need for a complete eye look: primer, illumnator, applicator, and complementing shadows. With 4 colors, specially coordinated to intensify and enhance your eye color, you can create a look as individual as you are. Make you eyes pop!

I was a little bummed that this was how my compact arrived: the silver eyeshadow is completely smashed to bits and therefore leaked a silvery film over everything else in the VoxBox. This was due to the fact that there was zero protective packaging in the box. Eek! That's not good.

Anyway, I managed to clean it off and use it (yes, this picture is the clean version). I left the plastic cover in this picture so you can see how the shadows come labeled.

This is the look I wore with this palette. I used the primer on my lid, then applied the silver (the smashed shade) all over my lid. Then I used the lighter of the Crease/Contour shades on my lower lid and the crease. Lastly, I used the highlighter up to my eyebrow. Well, not all the way up because I just can't get my head around putting eyeshadow all the way up to my eyebrow. It weirds me out, lol. 

I didn't use the illuminator or the darkest Crease/Contour colors. 

This wore very well and there wasn't a lot of fallout from the shadow. The only thing I did notice was a little bit of eye irritation but I have sensitive eyes to certain eyeshadows, so that was probably just me. 

For $4.99, I would definitely try a different colored palette.

Talk to you soon!
