The NYC sparkling eye dusts are ok, they don't really thrill me....but I saw this color on one of the Limited Edition displays and thought it looked pretty, and similar to a rosey nude color from BE that I just ran out of.
First of all, the packaging is awful. Its a roller top. Who actually rolls these things on their eyelids I would love to know. I tried it just for fun and got the shadow all over the place. So, after wiping it off, I tried rolling it on my fingertip...that didn't work very well, so I tried banging it really hard on my finger tip, that did work, only not only did the shadow come out and onto my fingers, it went everywhere else as well. Anyway, got enough out to dip a brush into.
The color at first is pretty, a soft shimmery neutral rosey shade - though I was disappointed to see a lot of glitter...fine glitter, but glitter nevertheless. You don't notice any glitter thru the container, I wouldn't have bought it if I had. Glitter shadow is not something for wearing everyday...but still, it is pretty. I did both eyes, then lined with a little brown shimmery shadow. So far so good. Definitely need a primer, by the way, because this won't stick without it. But that's ok too, cause I always wear primer.
Checked in the mirror an hour later, all the glitter is gone. Not on my face, so I am not sure where it went exactly...a mystery. And, since I didn't actually WANT the glitter, nothing to cry about...but if I HAD wanted the glitter, and lets face it, it DID look pretty, then it would be something to cry about.
Later in the day checked again and the color had gone sort of orangey on me. NOT GOOD. Not good at all.
I know, I know, this is an awfully long review with a lot of blah blah blah for such a cheap product, and a limited edition product too...! But, it is what it is. May be a good one to save for the Halloween makeup bag, or for play makeup for my nieces.
