Jolly VoxBox | NYC New York Color HD Color Trio Eye Shadow

I received the Jolly VoxBox from Influenster a few weeks ago. (You can see my "unveiling" post here.) Over the next couple of weeks, I'm going to review each of the products I received. I'd love to hear your thoughts on these products too!






About
HD Color Trio Eye Shadow delivers high intensity color with a silky soft texture. This lightweight formula blends effortlessly for the ultimate smoky eye look. Check out more products from NYC New York Color here. (Suggested Retail Price: $2.99)

My Thoughts
I have used the same eye shadow for about ten years. I try new brands or shades and inevitably go back to buying the same color as before. However, I think that's about to change.

Yep: The HD Color Trio Eye Shadow is a great, inexpensive eye shadow! I received the trio in the color "Long Beach Sands" ... a great trio of brown/taupe colors. It tells you on the packaging exactly where to put each color (crease, lid, etc.), so there's no guessing at what to do if you're in need of a little makeup instruction. The color looked great once I put it on and lasted a long time. (Note, I do use a makeup primer, so that probably helped.)

Nope: The only negative is that I did NOT like the applicator that came with it. It's really small! I had to work a little harder to get the colors smoothed in, since the small applicator initially made "stripes" of color on my eyelid. I generally use makeup brushes and thought the color went on much better when using those. If you don't already have a set of brushes, swiping an applicator from another shadow that you have on hand could be an option.

The Verdict: At only $2.99, the price is right for me, and I'll be buying other shades of this eye shadow so I'll have options when I'm getting ready!

Overall Score: A

I received this product free from Influenster for testing purposes. I was asked to give my fair and honest opinion, which I have done. 

Have you ever used the HD Color Trio Eye Shadow? Or any other products by NYC New York Color? What did you think?
