Review: City Color Multi-Shade Eye Shadow Palette

I was given the opportunity to review some products from

City Color Cosmetics

.  It is an affordable brand with many products to choose from.  What's great about this brand is that the quality is great! I always like to be on the lookout for quality products that are affordable for everyone.  Please don't always think that expensive makeup will always get you better results.  In my opinion you can achieve great looks even on a budget - it is the way you apply it that makes a difference.

The first review is the

City Color Multi-Shade Eye Shadow Palettes.

  I received 3 of them

 Browns and Greens

Grays and Blues

 Blues and Purples

The eye shadows are placed in an acrylic palette, it is very sturdy.  Is also comes with a applicator but I usually toss these and use makeup brushes for more detailed application.  The variety of colors in each of the palettes really give you a lot of creativity to explore different looks from natural to dramatic. My favorite palette is the Blues and Purples, just because I love wearing purple eye shadows.  The two purple shades in the palette are gorgeous and are very different from each other. One is more warm and the other is more cool.  Great variety! 

I will be posting looks featuring these palettes so please check back! Working on them now :)

When I was swatching the colors I found that using a primer is a must have to capture the intensity of the shadow. I used the

City Color Shadow Primer

in Nude.  The primer was easy to apply - very creamy and non drying.   I find that some eye primers out there are so drying on the eye lids but this one was nothing like the others.
