Review: City Color Eyeshadow Trio in Falling Leaves

*Some links are affiliate links*
Hey guys! Today I'm going to be reviewing the City Color Trio I received in my Ipsy bag last month called Falling Leaves. I thought the colors were really pretty, and I was excited to see how the shadows worked for me. 

Here is just a little info of the product from Ipsy:

City Color Eyeshadow Trio features three complimentary shades in one travel-friendly palette. Trio includes neutral shades in matte burnt orange, metallic bronze and champagne highlight. 

There are only two trios, and the City Color website says that there are limited quantities and only available to subscribers of the Ipsy Glam Bag for January 2016. I find that a little odd, and I haven't tried ordering the other one, which is called Blooming Flowers. 

Anyway, I think the colors are really beautiful. Looking at them in the package, they really do remind me of the Fall, which threw me off considering we're heading into Spring. The burnt orange and champagne shade are pretty warm-toned, and I feel the bronze shade is pretty neutral. They compliment each other, so that made my OCD happy. 

I did a very simple look where I first took the burnt orange shade and blended that all through my crease. I then took the champagne shade and placed that on the inner half of my eye, then used the bronze shade on the outer half of my eye. The shadows go on nicely and blend well, and the look was nice and simple to do. I feel like the colors aren't that pigmented though. 

The initial swatches were fairly impressive but a little patchy, and on the eye they look nice as well. After just a few hours though, they faded like crazy and it barely looked like I had eyeshadow on. For $5.99, I feel like these are an okay product, but I would never buy one for myself. The colors are beautiful, but that's where it stops for me. I'll probably get a little use out of this trio, but I don't see myself reaching for it often.

Be sure to subscribe to Ipsy for $10 a month, plus shipping for some, if you want to receive 4-5 beauty products in a cute makeup bag every month!
