Not too long ago I became a part of Influenster and recently received my first VoxBox. This is a box of goodies sent to me complimentary for testing and review. My first box contained, a lip gloss, some eye-shadow, a travel size pack of puffs, a mini roll of duck tape and some skinny cow candy. I will have separate reviews on each of these things…up first: The NYC HD Color Trio. Here’s the one I was sent:
I tried so hard to like it. The colors are gorgeous and are colors I wear often. The problem is I just don’t like it. Not even one little bit. First, the colors are very poorly pigmented. I knew as soon as I swatched these colors I’d need use them with a primer or cream shadow base. Even doing that though, there was still very little color pay-off. I had to pack color on over and over and over (so much packing it took about 4 to 6 cotton balls to get all the eye shadow off and yet it barely looked like I was wearing makeup). The shadow is chalky and has tons of fall out. I have two teen girls who are just not learning/experimenting with makeup and even they recognize this product for what’s it worth…nothing.
I’m glad I was able to try this before purchasing it though. Now I know what not to invest in for sure.
