If you need a great basic black to take this year's Halloween Costume Look to the next level, I've found 2 great products that won't even break the bank (and you'll love them so much you'll use them the rest of the year too!)
NYC New York Color Long Wearing Nail Enamel in Black Lace Crème (only 99 cents!) is perfect to top off your nails for classic Halloween beauty looks like Witches, Black Cats, Superheros (or Villains), Vampires, etc. I was very impressed that such an inexpensive polish could be so creamy and smooth. With just one coat the polish is a rich black and two just takes it up a notch with great shine. And it is long wearing. With a top coat, I got 5+ days of wear before any real wear and tear. This is also the perfect price point for teens/tweens who want to do nail art to create spiders, monsters, etc.
All Halloween looks can be played up by great eye makeup. And NYC New York Color City Proof 24 Hr Waterproof Eye shadow in New York At Night ($2.99) is perfect for that classic cat eye, leopard spots, cat whiskers, as well as more dramatic, creative effects. The pencil is retractable with an impressive creamy, smooth texture. It can be used for both shadow on the lids, as well as an eyeliner, drawing lines and other shapes.
It's a long wear product that will get you though all your Halloween parties in tact! There was no creasing, smudging, flaking and the rich, dark black did not fade all day for me.
When Halloween is over, these two products will continue to be in rotation in my makeup kit for great smoky eyes and dark dramatic nails too! - RLB
