|#942 Smoky Blues |
An undeniable aura of mystery is what I find so sexy about the look of smoky eyes. Yet, pulling off that effect can take some doing unless you have the right shades of shadows and technique to do the trick. I received two NYC New York Color Individual Eyes Custom Compacts in #941 Smokey Browns and #942 Smokey Blues that just simplify the task.
Although I do not have blue eyes as #942 Smokey Blues are intended for, but dark brown, these basic colors were striking on me and would probably work beautifully for all. The deepest shade is a dark plum along with a medium brown and a lighter beige-brown and a golden-apricot highlight.
Below is a photo of #942 Smokey Blues. I also swatched the shades. Starting on the right, the dark plum is nearest my wrist, then medium warm brown, beige-brown, and ending with the golden-apricot.

#941 Smokey Browns is another pretty palette of gray-taupe shadows that is basic and quite versatile to compliment practically all eye colors with its beauty. The darkest color is a soft shimmering charcoal black, medium brown-purple, medium beige-brown, and a silver highlight.
Next, I am holding #941 Smokey Browns for you below and swatched the shades. Closest to my wrist and working down my arm is the charcoal color, brown-plum, beige-brown, and ending with the silver.

These compacts also come with a primer and illuminator to use over the highlight color. In addition, you still get an applicator, which many companies have been skimping out on these days.
Furthermore, the shadows themselves go on smoothly, blend nicely, and last for hours. You can expect at least five hours without problems.
Another thing I want to mention is these are wonderful and matte for daytime. However, if you want more than a subtle shimmer, you can wet the applicator and it will give it more of that smoldering gleam you might be after for evening.
Best of all, these two NYC New York Color Individual Eyes Custom Compacts were so affordable at $4.99 each. If you need some new dazzling smoky shadows, I suggest you visit your drugstore and pick up both.
