NYX Love In Paris Palette Madeleines and Macarons Review & Swatches11:16 AM
Greetings from a very snowy Boston!
There is a storm brewing ONCE AGAIN in the North East (surprise suprise [sarcasm]) and I am very ill.
Not as in super awesomely cool but actually sick. I've been terribly sick since Tuesday and haven't been this sick since I was 9. My body seems to be having a hard time fending off this flu thang!
Anyhoo, back to some fun and less germy matters. I am writing this post today to share my review and swatches of one of the new NYX Love In Paris palettes! YAY! I was really looking forward to these palettes and so glad I was able to grab the one I wanted!
You guys know I love neutral colors and figured this would be a more smaller, more budget friendly version of the UD Naked Palette. Although there is another that is much more similar I just like the colors in this palette particularly.
The packaging is ADORABLE and reminds me a lot of my beloved Etude House packaging.
It has a cute bow at the opening. Doesn't feel super cheap or anything. Very decently made!
The NYX website describes this palette as having:
Shimmery & matte nudes, beiges & pink
Ehhh. It's not super amazing but put them over a base and BAM! Much better! I will say that the lighter colors (the white and pink in particular) are not very pigmented when used by themselves. The swatches I did are all without base which really isn't bad at all for a $10 palette!
Some of the colors are a bit powdery and chalky (especially the lighter matte colors). I really like the darker browns because they are very smoothhhhh. I've been using the darkest brown as my brow color and it is perfect!
Yeah they're pretty blendable! Even the powdery shades, if you tap off the excess and apply, they blend very easily!
❤ ADORABLE packaging
❤ Affordable price point
❤ Nice neutral colors for everyday/travel
❤ Decent pigmentation. Much better w. primer
I'd recommend it if you guys are in the market for a decently priced palette with good pigmentation!
Hope you liked my review! Bye for now~
LETS BE FRIENDS :D
