“ Brand: NYC / Type: Eyeshadows / Suitable for: Eye „
I received my NYC City duet eyeshadow in Tribecca Toast (the colour in the picture) as a gift from an american friend. I'd never heard of this brand before but I have since found out that they stock it in Superdrug.
The Duet eyeshadows come in 5 colour duo's which are Eastside Brownstone, Tribeca Toast, New York City Skyline, SoHo Spice, Manhattan Mist.
The Tribeca Toast has a pale pink highlight shadow and a dark brown Contour shadow, the case comes with a double ended brush with a brush and sponge.
I usually start with a creme base then apply the pink highight using the sponge to my eye from my lashes to just below my brow bone, I then apply the brown with the brush to just above the crease. The colour in this duo is suitable for day time use and If I was wearing it on a night out I would just build up the brown to achieve a smoky look.
I think the because of the colours Tribeca Toast would suit every skin colour as you can use less or more as needed, it would be a great first purchase if you have never tried NYC products before. As I said before I received mine as a gift so I've not had to purchase one yet but as they retail for $2.99 on the US website I figure they can not be very expensive to purchase in the UK.
I personally find that this eyeshadow does not crease but that could be due to the fact I use a base before using, the colour lasts from morning until night however I would have to top up to wear on a night out. I find the shadows blend very well.
NYC make up is produced by COTY and is not tested on animals. Each Duo eyeshadow has a Net weight of 1.9g and can be kept for up to 12months.
