I received this beautiful NYC eyeshadow compact from influenster, for free, to give an honest review. It sells for $4.99 at chain drugstores nationwide

My opinion: I have used this compact for several different applications. I used the black to set my son's zombie makeup for Halloween and it did a fantastic job. I have used the illuminator as a highlighter on my cheeks. It does a fabulous job giving you the "glow."
My only complaint about this little compact is the eyeshadow primer. For me, it caused my shadow to crease almost immediately. It stayed very greasy on my lid and never really dried. I think maybe that is the reason for the creasing.
Overall, I really like this product. It is a great little palette to give you that smoky eye effect.
