So once again, I fell into the never-ending circle of buying makeup that I do not need, especially after going to IMATS last weekend. While shopping for storage compartments to now store all my new makeup in, one of my girlfriends and I decided to go to Marshall’s. With already knowing my specific intentions inside of this store, I forced myself to not get distracted, however that only worked for a couple of minutes. While shopping around, I saw this NYX Cosmetics set which came with 11 different goodies, for only $15. If I were to buy each individually, I would have easily spent close to $100. So in this package came the following:
1) NYX Triple eye shadow “17” with colors Frosted Flake, Slate and Luster
2)NYX Fabulous Lashes and glue in “102 Diva”
3) NYX single eye shadows in Asphalt and Eggplant.
4) NYX lipsticks in Silk and Uberchic
5) NYX liquid liner in Copper
6) NYX Jumbo lip pencil in Cocoa
7) NYX Mega shine lip gloss in Gold
8) NYX brush on glosses in Sunrise and Taupe
Above is a picture of my swatches of everything except the eye shadow trio. Starting from the bottom are the two individual shadows, above that are the liquid liner and jumbo pencil. To the left are swatches of the two lipsticks and at the top of my hand are the swatches of the three lip products (you can barely see Taupe).
Above are both of the lipstick swatches. Both of these are a creme lipstick with soft shimmer in them. Silk is a mauve-purple with shimmer whereas Uberchic is a soft tan creme with shimmer.
These are the lip gloss swatches, going from top to botton, Sunrise, Gold and Taupe. Taupe is the only lip gloss without shimmer. I was so happy to see how pigmented these glosses were when I swatched them. Super excited to try out Taupe over a natural lip color. I can’t wait to wear these colors!! Also a big perk on the NYX Mega shine lip gloss in gold for super cute packaging, has a bow on the top of the handle.
Above are the swatches of the liquid liner in Copper (left) and the jumbo lip pencil in Cocoa. Both have a satin finish and glided on my hand very easily.
Last but certainly not least is the eye shadow trio. When I swatched these colors, with no base/primer, I immediately noticed that these colors are dupes for other eye shadows that I own. The soft silver shade at the bottom is very similar to Urban Decay Verve, found in the Naked 2 palette. The middle brown color is similar to Snake bite also from the Naked 2 palette. Looking at the pan this color isn’t identical, but the swatch proves differently. Lastly, the taupe shade at the top is very similar to MAC’s Satin Taupe.
Thanks so much for reading and talk to you all soon!!
