A few days back, I updated my Gosh Army population, and today it’s NYX’s turn. I don’t mean to brag about this, this is more for my personal reference of what I already have – in case I’m tempted to order some more, and for your reference if you need any swatches 🙂
These eyeshadows are from one of the bulk sales NYX did on their website. As shipping to Canada would cost $60 (I checked), I asked a friend in the US helped and he gave them to my sis when he went home for vacation. I just got them back from her. Mom and sis picked out a few that they liked, 4 broke on the way here (*sad face*), so this is what I have left.
First row, from L-R: Skin, Shimmer, Peach, Jazzy Bronze and 24 Karet (exactly what it said on the label).
Second row: Toffee, Cedar Wood, Walnut Bronze, Slate, Beanie and Egg White.
I didn’t use flash, but the light in my room wasn’t the perfect natural light, so the colours appeared a bit differently.
First row, from L-R: October Sky, Navy, Red Bean and Ballerina.
Second row: Algae, Jade, Marrakesh, Aqua Marine and Sweet Lagoon.
It’s interesting that green seemed to be the dominant colour in the whole bunch.
Olive Green, Khaki on the top.
Alaska, Earthy at the bottom.
I could probably put the first 2 in the green group, but somehow I didn’t. The last 2 are for smoky effect or crease colours, don’t fit to any group.
From the left, clockwise:
First trio: Princess Pink/ Flamenco/ Violet
Second: Velvet Blue/ Ocean Frost/ Space
Third: White/ Tropical/ Silver.
I am so glad that NYX now have 5-colour palettes (Caribbean Collection) and 10-colour palettes (Runway & For Your Eyes Collection), and kits to satisfy makeup lovers. I so hope they would do a big sale on these or the nail polishes 🙂
What’s your experience with NYX eyeshadows? Do you like them?
