New NYC CityProof 24HR Eyeshadow and Primer



Howdy gals and guys!!!

A few days ago I was walking around CVS checking out the makeup. I noticed the NYC display was getting updated. They had loads of new stuff and I was super excited.
What really got my attention was the shadow sticks and the primer.

CVS I paid $2.99 for each

CityProof 24HR Eye Primer

001 Universal

From website:
- Ultimate prep for creaseless, more vibrant shadow.
- Primes the eye lid for more intense eye shadow color & better eyeshadow wear : extends the wear of eye shadow by up to 4 hours longer

Having an eye primer in stick form that you don't have to sharpen is smart. I just love the packaging. As for the product its not one of my favs. It goes on easy and blends out well but you have to be fast because it dries quick. The formula is on the dry side and you need to warm it up with your fingers. I did use a brush to blend it out but I felt like it left the product looking patchy. I felt that I got more of even application using my finger. This does give a nice base to shadows and to the shadow pencils if you can get an even coat but I did only get 4 hours of wear before it started creasing. It also has a strange smell.

I tried these on top of the primer and without. Either way it didn't apply super smooth. Again I tried applying it with a brush and with my finger. Applying it with my fingers does give it a better look but not much. I tried it as a base for eyeshadow and also just as a cream shadow. It did an ok job as a base for shadows but nothing amazing. I just wanted these to go on smooth and creamy but they didn't. They were dry and creased and had a bad smell. 

Over all I am disappointed with both of these products. They weren't creamy or smooth and they didn't last. I had extremely high hopes for these but we can't win them all.


Have y'all seen these yet? Let me know what you think.

Thanks for reading and until next time!!
