Product Review Featuring NYC New York Color Sparkle Eye Dust in Brilliant Sapphire!
I first heard about this product when I seen it featured on Influenster, as part of the Paradise Voxbox. The shade everyone seemed to be reviewing was in Smokey Topaz, which is one of the original shades. I decided that I needed to hunt down the Sparkle Eye Dust in Brilliant Sapphire A.S.A.P! I went to several stores before I happened to snag the last one in stock. I love trying out new things!
However, I soon realized that this is an old product with revamped packaging. It will be familiar to you, if you frequent the NYC displays.
I have to say the new packaging is 100% improvement compared to the old packaging. I don't care for products with those horrible brush tip applicators. The product gets everywhere and it makes applying the product in a clean, precise manner impossible. Kudos to NYC brilliant product revamp!
These are the currently available colors, as listed on the NYC website:
The lighter shades tend to be more on the sheer side, so I recommend using those as inner corner or brow bone highlights. They even make a great all-over lid color.
The new packaging comes with a doe-foot applicator, which I happen to be very partial to when it comes to products in a tube. It makes applying the product a breeze! As you can tell from the swatches, the sparkle eye dust is very pigmented by itself without a primer or a base. I always use a primer or a base, when applying any eyeshadow on my eyes though and recommend it to help keep the product from budging. It lasts a really long time I wore this product all day, and it didn't crease at all.
Since this is a loose shadow, you can use it dry or wet to take it to a new level of bold. When using the product wet you can turn it into an eyeliner. They have a shade for everyone whether you're a neutral lover or addicted to color.
Sprinkle a little New York magic into your world! These super sparkly shades of NYC Sparkle Eye Dust add light and life to your look. A light touch gives you an alluring halo of illumination around the eye.

All-in-all I think this is a brilliant product, especially for the price point. To get a loose pigment eyeshadow for under $10 is almost unheard of! If you're in the market for something versatile and season appropriate, then stop by your local drugstore & give this a try. A special thank you, to Influenster for the wonderful product suggestion!
I purchased this product myself in order to test and review. The product was recommended by Influenster. My opinions are 100% my own!
