Review: NYC New York Color Individual Eyes Custom Compact

Hi my loves! How goes it? 

    I have to start off by saying I'm not a huge fan of the NYC IndividualEyes palettes. I used to have the one for brown eyes (Union Square) before I really got into makeup and understood things like: pigmentation, creasing, and lasting power. I do think these palettes are a good idea for beginners because they are pretty fool-proof, but they just don't do it for me. 

You can see the whole line of compacts at the NYC New York Color website, and they are available in basically every drugstore around. These palettes retail for $4.99 each. 

via NYC New York Color:
NYC New York Color's all-in-one compact gives you everything you need for a complete eye look: primer, illuminator, applicator and complementing shadows. With four vibrant colors designed for your eye color, you can create a look as individual as you are!

As stated; these palettes come with 4 shades: lid, crease, definer and brow. It also comes with a primer and illuminator, which are cream products. While in theory it's nice having an all-in-one compact, powder gets into the cream products. The cream products themselves are basically junk. They don't work. The primer creases like crazy. The shadows themselves are not overly powdery, but they lack in pigmentation. I received the compact in Dark Shadows, and I think the other palette I owned (Union Square) had better color payoff. 

    This particular palette, called Dark Shadows, is LE so I'm not sure when it came out or if it's even still available. This palette contains all shimmery shades. There is a white, silver, grey and a black.

    These compacts are not a bad deal for what you get, but like I said before: they just don't turn my crank. I much prefer my Wet n Wild palettes. I do have a NYC duo called Brighton Peach that I absolutely love, but these compacts just aren't at the same level. Have you tried these before? What did you think about them?
