FOTD: Dark Shadows

Hey Beauties,

If you can recall I posted and did a video on an influenster Voxbox for Beauty Bloggers that I received.  Now one particular beauty item that I wanted to try was the N.Y.C. Individual Eyes palette namely Dark Shadows. It is a limited edition item and of course knowing this is a beauty blog, I had to give my take in using this palette.

However, I have to review this item for you beauties. The N.Y.C. Dark Shadows palette is limited edition palette so if you see it at your local drugstore and would love to purchase it, definitely do.
The palette has four colors that are great for any glitz and glam makeup look, especially for a date night, smokey eye, club look; not a palette for your everyday wear kinda look. The palette also contains a primer so this saves you money on purchasing a eye primer and some eyeshadows separately. With that it come with an extra which is an illuminator that can be used as an eye highlight color along with being used as a face highlighter (which in the latter case looks absolutely awesome). Nonetheless, this palette has it cons; couple of the shadows are chalky and it definitely gives fallout but on the rating scale this gets a 7 out 10.

So beauties here is my look using the NYC Individual Eyes; Dark Shadows palette
