City Color Cosmetics Collection 4 All Occasion Eye Shadow Palette

This was my first time trying the City Color Cosmetics brand and I have to say I am very impressed! The Collection 4 All Occasion Eye Shadow Palette features 12 vibrant shades that are great to play around with to create more colorful eye looks.

These eye shadows are nicely pigmented and have a slight shimmer to them. I like how they included a white shadow which is great for highlighting under the brow bone and the inner corner as well as a black shadow which comes in handy when going for a more dramatic, smoky look. Although they are a little chalky, they still blend easily and do not flake throughout the day. To get the most out of the colors, I would recommend using a white eye shadow primer (such as the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk) to make the shades stand out even more. If you are like me and normally stick to neutrals, this is a great palette to start off if you are looking to venture out of your comfort zone.

What is your favorite colorful palette? Let me know in the comments below, I love reading your recommendations! :)

  2. I love the Urban Decay Naked and Naked2 palettes! They're not nearly as colorful, but their shades are amazing for creating smokey eyes and everyday looks. Hope you had a great weekend!
