Hi there, my darlings! So, today is the big day! PROM! Our graduating seniors will be partying the night away to celebrate getting through 4 rigorous years at our high school/early college and I am...going to miss out on the festivities. Because of my crazy long commute home. Whomp. But I know I'll be there with them in spirit and I'm hoping that some of my tech babies will be blowing up my phone with pics! Right about now, they'll be getting ready--doing their hair, getting their makeup done or starting to do it themselves and generally getting READY! Now, I know when I have a big event planned and I have to plan my outfit, my hair, my accessories AND my makeup, sometimes things slip through the cracks. I'll forget to buy safety pins or not have as many razors as I thought I did or forget to buy the right deodorant or worse yet, think that I have the right shade of eyeshadow but it's way off. I can't be the only one, right?! At times like that, you can run to Sephora, if you happen to live in some impossibly awesome area, or you can make a drugstore run. I usually choose the latter cos I know I can find some amazing, affordable makeup finds, thanks to NYC New York Color. Today, I'll be sharing a few of those finds...but we'll be concentrating on eye makeup! They say a picture is worth a thousand words so I'm going to let the swatches do most of the talking...for a change! ;)

Plus, with clearly indicated step-by-step instructions, the Individual Eyes Eye Shadows Palette give you tips for easy application and professional results!

Available in 8 different palettes, I have 2 to share with you today :

  • All Eye Colors 

Universal shades in grays, whites and blacks make this a great starter palette for the new makeup enthusiast.

FROM LEFT TO RIGHT : Primer, Illuminator, Highlighter, All Over Lid, Crease/Contour x 2

  • Blue Eyes Basics

I don't know about you but I would get this palette just for the gorgeous plum shade and the shimmery peach-gold!

FROM LEFT TO RIGHT : Primer, Illuminator, Gel Liner, Highlighter, Crease, Outline, All Over Lid

  • Beige Nudes

With muted nudes and subtle shades, this palette would be perfect for every day wear, either to the office or to a more professional setting.

FROM LEFT TO RIGHT : Primer, Illuminator, Gel Liner, Highlighter, Outline, Crease, All Over Lid

  • Bronze Nudes

One of my faves, I love the warm, shimmery shades in this palette! So perfect for a natural, glowing daytime look!

  • Green Eyes Basics

I don't even care that I have hazel and not even remotely green eyes--the purples in this palette are beautiful and totally calling my name!

  • Smokey Charcoals

Filled with pristine whites and shimmery grays and stark blacks, this palette will help you create a smokey eye in a flash--I'm particularly obsessed with that black gel liner! Just look at how pigmented it is!

BROWSER BRUSH-ON BROW KIT in Dark Brown($3.99):

Make the most of your eyebrows... with better than natural results!

Breakfast in TriBeCa, shopping on Canal Street then Art Gallery opening on 57th street, cool New York babes always have to look their best. NYC New York Color Browser Brush-On Brow Powder is your complete kit for beautiful brows! Long-lasting, the grooming wax holds hairs neatly in place for all day perfection... powder fills in bare spots... who can ask for more?

First of all, how cool is it that this little kit has a little pair of tweezers included? Genius! I'm always going to touch up my brows and there it is...an annoying stray hair and my tweezers nowhere to be found!

The primer took a bit of getting used to because it's just so WHITE but I really like the soft shade of brown of the brow powder--it looks much more natural. I still prefer a pencil rather than a powder but if you like powders, this is a good one to try!


Incredible staying power inspired by the city that never sleeps!

Want round the clock color that never fades or creases? This chubby, waterproof eye shadow delivers vibrant color for up to 24HR wear! In eleven on trend shades perfect for any look, just twist, glide and go!

I love these chubby crayons! Yes, you can totally use them as eyeshadow all over the lid but they are soft enough and pigmented enough that you can also use them as liners. And hey! Wouldn't the champagne gold be a great on-the-go highlighter?!

Uptown, midtown or downtown. Get your lash game visibly going with an all in one mascara that curves faster, lengthens longer, and gives bolder volume.
Featuring a best-in-class formula, Get It All Mascara contains candelilla wax to enhance film formulation and stiffness, yielding better curl. This mascara also glides on easily, won’t smudge, and won’t irritate sensitive eyes, making it ideal for contact-lens wearers. Get It All Mascara’s brush is easy to control, facilitating lavish lash lengthening for both top and bottom lashes.

For less than 4 bucks, this mascara is a steal! I like the fat brush that really gets the product layered onto your lashes and I LOVE the pigmentation of the black. Trust me, a watered down black, in a liner or mascara, is my biggest pet peeve! Stay tuned for social media selfies!
