NYX 'Love in Paris' Palette

Thursday, 17 September 2015



 Hello Beauties! I hope you're all well and looking forward to the weekend - I know I am! This week has been crazy busy for me at work, but I have my bestie coming down tomorrow night which I'm so looking forward to, I haven't seen her since I moved to London a couple of months ago now, so it will be lovely to finally see each other again and catch up! Anyway, today I'm back again with yet another eyeshadow palette...I know, it's a problem. 

I've mentioned a couple of times on here that apart from neutrals, greens and purples are my 'go-to' eyeshadow colours, particularly for nights out. During the day I'm normally more drawn to neutrals (mainly as I'm always in a rush and they're the safest option), however when it comes to a night out with my girls, I love to play around with colour a bit and incorporate a few different shades into my look. Recently my dear friend Alyson sent me a little birthday package all the way from the States, which included this gorgeous palette from NYX. NYX is another brand which is fairly hard to get your hands on in the UK now that they've pulled out of Next, so I was over the moon to receive this palette, and the colour selection is perfect for me! 

'Love in Paris' contains 9 shades which range from your standard light neutrals, to some more smokey green shades, perfect for creating a different take on the standard smokey eye. When I think NYX I don't immediately remember them for their eyeshadows, however I really do think that the quality of these is great for a drugstore brand. Some of the shades were a little more pigmented than others, particularly the darker shades, and some were also a little more powdery (again, the darker shades), however on the whole, the formula is pretty decent. It provides just enough pigmentation to create the desired looks, and blends out perfectly well - not too shabby. 

Overall, I really do love this palette as a cute little drugstore palette. The palette is fairly small so would be perfect for travelling or for someone who is just getting into makeup and doesn't want to invest in any higher end pieces. 

What do you think of this palette?

Lots of Love,

  1. beautiful shades indeed. I'm just like you, neutrals all the way.

    I so wish NYX was easier to find here, their lipsticks are so great.

  5. How cute! I love the colour selection there. I reach for purples and greens when I want to mix things up as well. It is a fun way to add in a little bit of colour - without going too crazy.

  9. NYX do great products, I like them a lot! This palette probably won't be for me though, I find the colours are a little too... dull? I can't find the right word, but I probably wouldn't get much wear out of it :)
