Name: Couture Eyeshadow in New York
From N.6’s website:
If offers both a satin and a pearly finish thanks to the mix of two innovative formulas. The very pearly highlighter provides a soft and luminously wash of colour; the colour, one shade darker, has a satiny finish easy to blend.
What I liked:
– good colour payoff
– the pearly shade has a very luminous finish
– can be used to create natural day to night time looks
– soft texture, easy to blend
– good staying power, when used with a primer
– pretty packaging
– the price
What I didn’t like:
– colour payoff may be too soft for some people
– if you have oily lids, you need to use a primer with it
New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made, oh
There’s nothing you can’t do, now you’re in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you, let’s hear it for New York
Empire State Of Mind by Jay-z pops into my head every time I use N.6 Couture Eyeshadow in New York, an eyeshadow duo inspired by The Big Apple. I’m not sure N.6 has got the concrete part right (the duo features brown, not gray shades), but they definitely got the “big lights” bit covered.
The lighter shade in the duo, a delicate and warm taupe, has a beautiful pearly finish. One swipe provides a soft, but opaque, wash of colour on the lids that beautifully illuminates the eyes, giving them a radiant and fresh look.
The darker brown, which I use to define the crease, has a satin finish. It has good colour payoff and can be both easily built up or sheered out, depending on how intense you want it to be. Together, these shades create a natural day to night time look that can be worn for any occasion, be it school, work, or play.
Both eyeshadows have a lovely texture. Soft to the touch, they both blend easily and, with the help of a good primer, they can last up 10 hours on the lids without creasing or fading. I just wish they were more easily available. N.6 has recently opened an online shop, but, at the moment, they only ship within Italy.
