|#942 Smoky Blues|
An undeniable aura of mystery is what I find so
sexy about the look of smoky eyes. Yet, pulling off that effect can take
some doing unless you have the right shades of shadows and technique to do the
trick. I received two NYC New York Color Individual Eyes Custom
Compacts in #941 Smokey Browns and #942 Smokey Blues that just
simplify the task.
Although I do not have blue eyes as #942
Smokey Blues are intended for, but dark brown, these basic colors were
striking on me and would probably work beautifully for all. The deepest shade is a dark
plum along with a medium brown and a lighter beige-brown and a golden-apricot
Below is a photo of #942 Smokey Blues. I also swatched the shades. Starting on the right, the dark plum is nearest my wrist, then medium warm brown, beige-brown, and ending with the golden-apricot.

These compacts also come with a primer and
illuminator to use over the highlight color. In addition, you still get an
applicator, which many companies have been skimping out on these days.
Furthermore, the shadows themselves go on
smoothly, blend nicely, and last for hours. You can expect at least five
hours without problems.
Another thing I want to mention is these are
wonderful and matte for daytime. However, if you want more than a subtle
shimmer, you can wet the applicator and it will give it more of that smoldering
gleam you might be after for evening.
Best of all, these two NYC New York Color Individual Eyes Custom Compacts were so affordable at $4.99 each. If you need
some new dazzling smoky shadows, I suggest you visit your drugstore and pick up
