City Color Cosmetics

I recently had the pleasure of meeting a few ladies from the City Color Cosmetics team. After talking for a bit, they agreed to send over a few products so I could try and review. I expressed my obsession with bold eyes and lips so they provided me with a few items they thought i'd love. Spoiler alert: they did not disappoint!

City Color says: Add some kick to your neutral eye with the Spice Me Up Palette. Featuring 10 lightly-shimmered shades inspired by the rich hues of the spices to add just that "something extra" to our every day. Live life with a little spice!

I am not lying to you when I say that I have used the Spice Me Up Palette every single day since I got it (as you can tell by the photos). The pigment is UNREAL. Seriously, I haven't found this kind of pigment and staying power in other inexpensive brands. This goes without saying BUT it goes on even better with primer. 

Harvest Moon Palette - $10.99

City Color says: Harvest Moon Palette features 16 full-size, newly reformulated City Color shadows in complimentary shades of peaches, corals and warm neutrals. Great for every-day wear, these highly pigmented shades glide on smoothly and blend with ease.

Again, seriously floored by how amazing the pigment is for this palette. It contains a few colors I wouldn't generally use but i've tried a million different combinations and have been pleasantly surprised with the outcome! I love to pick and choose colors from both palettes to make a great smokey eye. 

Ticked Pink Cosmo & Blackberry Mojito - $4.99

City Color says: With true opaque color, City Color Creamy Lips is a lip paint that just won't quit! A little goes a long way with this ultra pigmented formula - only a light touch is needed for full coverage with only one layer. Sets to a lightweight, semi matte finish that doesn't dry out and keeps your lips natural moisture preserved. Available in 12 sweet and sultry shades. Pro-tip: Wipe excess product off wand before applying to ensure the best application and staying power.

When I first met the City Color team, I told them how I love to keep my lip game strong. They assured me that City Color Creamy Lips was exactly what I needed. I've only worn them a few times so far but have received a ton of compliments. Generally, I like to go with a bright lip in the Spring and Summer so I know I will get a lot of wear out of these in the coming months.
