I'm pretty new to Nyx eyeshadow. Aside from the one I received a few months back from Ipsy, this is really all I own. It has it's pros and cons from what I can see. Pros would be, they're fairly cheap ($14.99 but Ulta always has coupons, I paid about $12), tons of colors, and seem to have long lasting power with no visible creasing. Cons would be some of the colors in this palette I want to love, but they go on kind of weird. Who's ready for some swatches!!!!?
Here it is when I first purchased it. It's a really nice little neutral palette. There is only one gold color, so I don't really know why it's called "Golden Horizons" but whatever. The color in the top left and the one directly next to the white on the bottom row are my favorites.
Here's the best picture I could get with my phone tonight of all the colors. This is dry, applied with a brush. The first color that I love so much is really shimmery, and reminds me of Urban Decay's Midnight Cowboy Rides Again. Lots of glitter. A little fallout. Just like it.
Here is a photo of both dry (on the top) and wet (bottom) application. I prefer this eyeshadow wet, as it is MUCH more pigmented. The color that I was talking about earlier that is a little weird is the 2nd color, the purple one. When you first apply it... it's kind of clumpy like and you have to reallllly work it in, but then it turns into a really nice purple color. I also really like the gold/bronze color and the one right next to the white.
Here is a really crummy picture of what it looks like on. The colors are very easily blended. I used the pink shade, the brown shimmery one, the shimmer dark grey, and the light shimmery one for highlight.
FYI Starlooks Kohl eyeliner is the worst. Someone remind me not to use it when I'm going to be taking blog photos.
& here's all my makeup just so you guys don't think I'm a total hot mess.
Happy New Year everyone!
Is there anything you'd like to see on the blog this year?
