NYC Color Individual Eyes Custom Compacts are designed for variety of eye colors & effects. They contain four co-ordinating shades for the respective eye color accompanied with a primer, illuminator & dual sided sponge applicator. You have complete instructions for usage, looks creation & the other information related to product on the back of packaging which is extremely useful especially if you are a makeup beginner.
The packaging is sleek & light with a rectangular black case embedded with four completing shades along with a primer & illuminator. There’s a sturdy plastic protection labelled for the shades usage. The complete assortment is sealed in with transparent plastic flap cap. Overall packaging is chic & sturdy.
I picked up SMOKIN’ Palette created for brown eyes which contains:
- A Light Ashy highlighter which works extremely well for inner corner rather than on brow bones.
- A Taupe Brown as an all over lid shade
- A Mauvish Brown as a Crease/Contour Shade
- & A Shimmery Black again meant for Crease/Contour.
All the shades contain shimmers. While the rest of the shades have minute shimmers giving a slight sheen, Black contains somewhat chunkier shimmers comparatively. Nevertheless the texture is very smooth & soft with nil fall out for all the shades. They apply smoothly & evenly without any issues. Having said that the pigmentation is pretty average & some layering is required to show off the shades well on lids. They perform much better with a primer with slightly higher intensity enough for a day wear on my dry lids. The black shade has the weakest pigmentation & is pretty much invisible if used without a primer. The rest of the shade also comes out weak but are wearable for few hours even without a primer. They wear easily for 7-8 hours with a primer on my dry lids before starting to show up fading edges & without a primer I can see them diminishing in 3 hours. All the shades weared together gives a nice sultry smoky look.
The primer provided with the quad is quite good for daily wear. Its light, creamy (though not much as other drugstore brands)& easily blendable. The illuminator I felt is too light or ashy for Indian skintones.
Overall looking at the price tag this custom compact performs quiet well. The involvement of primer & illuminator makes it a complete eye makeup kit especially for beginners without any hassle of carrying around different shades & primer & an assortment of complementing shades makes it easier to wear & create variety of looks.

- Makes a nice eye makeup kit especially for beginners.

- Easy & even hassle free application.
- Nil fall out.
- Wear time is decent with a primer.
- SMOKIN’ for Brown eyes gives a nice smoky/hazy look to eyes.
- The pigmentation is very average. They definitely need a primer to perform.
- The black shade is very sluggish & barely shows up without a primer.
- The shades don’t long much without a primer! (Yes primer is the lifeline of this compact).
SMOKIN’ is designed for Brown eyes for that sexy sultry look but unfortunately the very ordinary pigmentation kills the excitement especially with the Black shade being lifeless without a primer. Primer is lifeline of this compact though I am not sure how other palettes perform from this range. The range will be a good pick for beginners as being milder in pigmentation will help to rework on the errors easily.
