NYC-Individual Eyes eyeshadow palette-review

*If you saw my Beauty Blogger voxbox post, you'll know I received this product free to test out and review. I'm not required to review it and I'm not being compensated for my review. All opinions are honest and my own. * 

NYC Individual Eyes eyeshadow palette in Dark Shadows.

I was pretty excited to receive this product to test out because what girl doesn't love to play with make-up? 

This palette is an all-in-one including four eyeshadows, a primer, and an illuminator.

The primer is more of a concealer consistency and it almost matched my skin tone perfectly. It's a little on the thick creamy/oily side.
The illuminator was less thick and glided on easily.  

The shadows swatched over the primer

The quick look I came up with as soon as I got the palette. 

I blended, blended, blended.

My overall thoughts:

The shadows were nicely pigmented and you can create a smoky night time look or you could blend like a mad women and make this work for the day time as well.

This palette is available at most drug stores or super markets and it's only $4.99 .
With that being said, the quality for the price is pretty amazing.
I wouldn't recommend the primer if you have oily eyelids. I don't know if I would recommend it even if you didn't. I wasn't in love with it and would use my own primer. It wasn't horrible by any means, I just prefer my own to it. 

This palette is a great starter kit if you're new to the make-up world, or if you're traveling and don't want to take multiple products. 
They also have palettes customized for the color of your eyes. So if you're interested check that out as well.
