NYX Love In Paris Palette Madeleines and Macarons Review & Swatches

11:16 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. 



PACKAGING:

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!


COLORS:

The NYX website describes this palette as having:
Shimmery & matte nudes, beiges & pink 



PIGMENTATION:

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! 

TEXTURE:

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!

BLENDABLE?:

Yeah they're pretty blendable! Even the powdery shades, if you tap off the excess and apply, they blend very easily!

FINAL THOUGHTS:

      ❤      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~
