NYX Love in Paris

 

nyxMy first experience with NYX eye-shadows was not a very fortunate one as I was in search of a dupe after a MAC taupe single eye-shadow. But this is a story for other time. Bottom line, I gave NYX another chance with their palettes and I was not disappointed.

This is a palette from NYX Spring 2013 collection so it’s not new but I had a chance to buy it recently at a discounted price and I’ve been using it ever since in different occasions: at work, at different parties or clubs and even at a baptism party.

Pro’s:

  • out of the 9 shades that the palette contains the size of a post stamp, you have many possibilities for different natural or smokey eyes makeup looks
  • blended properly, these color will resist flawlessly up to 12 hours of hard conditions (yes, there was such a party)
  • smooth and pigmented
  • great for travelling, but mostly for short weekends

Con’s:

  • being limited to only 9 nude colors (out of which only 2 grays, the rest are brown nude-ish variations) you can easily get bored

My rating: 7.5/10. If you come across this palette just give it a try and let me tell you how was your personal experience.

Until the next time, wear red lipstick and glitter all the way:-)
