♥ NYC Everyday Palette My Eyeshadow Palette

I have shown this eye shadow quartet before , here, but I didn't do a thorough review and I didn't show a lot of pictures. After that I discovered how great the dark shade was for filling in my eyebrows with my Real Techniques eye brow brush (link)

NYC New York Color 815A "The Best Of Broadway" Metro Quartet Eye Shadow Review

The packaging is tiny, which I love. It really is a travel essential, especially for me since I can use the dark shade for my eyebrows. 

This is my every day smokey eye look using the first and second shadow (more pics of the shades below) The colours are pigmented and easy to blend, and they definitely last for a long time!

I've only used my Real Techniques eyebrow brush and the dark shade to do my eyebrows in these pictures, great results right?

Here is a pic with no flash, I'd say the colours look more like in this picture.

 These are all the shades, as you can see the ones to the left are more used. For some reason I don't really like the brown one, and the yellow one is just a highlighter so I don't use a lot at once.

I also like that it comes with "instructions", although for this look I didn't do it that way.

Here is a look at the ingredients.

(/ ) Silicone Free

Have you tried these quartets? I believe the American versions come with an eyelid primer as well, which is great, has anyone tried those?
