A Week of Swatches - Day 4: NYX
I've recently become quite addicted to NYX products. I don't know why it took me so long and what exactly made me jump on the bandwagon but, man, I am so glad I did. I am in love with their concealer and mascara and recently began liking SOME of their eyeshadows.
I say some because not all their palettes are pigmented or long lasting. I am very lucky to say that the two palettes I bought recently are both of these and more. The top palette is called Bon Voyage and the bottom one is called Wanderlust. (Based on the names, I'll give you one guess why I bought them...ha).
Bon Voyage is the darker of the two palettes with more jewel tones and colors needed to make a crisp, smoky eye. I am completely taken with the green and purple colors.
As you can see, the pigmentation is actually quite good. Some of the shadows are a bit flaky but again, what can you expect for the price.
Wanderlust is gorgeous but definitely not my favorite of the two. It's more of a nude meets shimmer kind of palette.
I think these colors really pop, though, once on. The second color (reminds me of a pair of my ballet slippers) is just stunning.
Not swatching these two BUT wanted to show you what I picked up for less than $10 a piece. The top palette is called Wicked Dreams and the second is called Boheme Chic. I am addicted to these bidding sites on facebook and I scored big time on these two beauties. I am in NYX heaven!!
What is your favorite NYX palette? Have you ever used either of these ones before?
