NYC City Proof 24 Hr Eye Crayons

Hey guys!

Press Sample

Fun fact: today is my birthday!! Whoo! Happy birthday to me! Haha.

Today I bring you a review of the new NYC City Proof 24hr Eyeshadow crayons. These claim to be waterproof and last for 24 hours. I'm not even going to pretend that I tested these for 24 hours, lol. I'm an old lady now, I never wear makeup for that long! :-p

There are 12 shades in the line and I have 8 to share with you! Let's get to it! These are a twist up crayon product with clear plastic lids. The lids click on so you know they won't get dislodged. As you can see, the color of the shadow is the color of the barrel.

I swatched all of these with no primer, and all the swatches are one swipe of color, with one exception. They are nicely pigmented!

Brooklyn Mocha, Murray Hill Champagne Rockefeller Center Snowflakes, Empire State Building.

New York At Night, Central Park Tulips (two swipes to build color), East River Romance, Madison Square Park.

These do set fairly quickly so I would recommend putting the color exactly where you want, as there is little time for blending.

For this look, I used Madison Square Park and some Milani eyeshadows:
- Milani Eye Primer
- NYC Madison Square Park
- Milani Bella Taupe
- Milani Bella Ivory
- Milani Belly Diamond
- Kat Von D Autograph Eyeliner
- Mally Volumizing Mascara
- Milani Coral Cove blush
- Milani Matte Naked lipstick

I love green eyeshadow so I very excited to see this beautiful green shadow stick in the press samples that I received! Upon swatching all of the colors, I am very happy with how they all look and cannot wait to use these for more looks! They will be great liners as well, for those days in the summer that I just want to do something quick but still have some color on my lids.

You can purchase NYC cosmetics at chain drugstores and mass merchandisers nationwide and these retail for $2.99 each (MSRP).

Talk to you soon!
