My Custom NYX Pro Palette

Sunday, 8 May 2016

NYX is a brand I've always adored from afar as it's not available in my local Boots and I prefer not to buy makeup online as I like to play with them them in person (yes, I'm one of those girls who walks out of a shop with swatches all down my arms.) 

So when I spotted the brand new NYX stand in Meadowhall, I was so excited to do something I've never done before and create my own eyeshadow palette. 

Straight into the colours, I chose three Hot Single shadows, which are £2.50 each,and one Prismatic metallic shadow which was £4.20.
I absolutely adore all the shades I've chosen for my palette and was amazed at what great value they were.

In the palette, the colours from left to right are Pink Cloud, Punk Heart, Illusion and Own The Night.

- Pink Cloud is a delicious, sugary pink described as an iridescent light pink.

- Punk Heart is dee plum with purple shimmer.

- Illusion is a fabulous shimmery golden brown which is super pigmented.

- Own The Night is a matte violet-brown which is a little more powdery than the rest of the shades.

I don't have much more to say about the eye shadows except for I love how creamy and sexy they feel on my lids and I already have my own on a couple more shades to fill my palette (Mermaid and Sin) so keep your eyes peeled for the next palette update.

Lastly, I apologise for the inconsistent photo style - I couldn't find my own camera and had to experiment with using my dad's for the first time.  

What do you think to my custom shades?

  1. Gorgeous shades! I'm so jealous that NYX counters seem to be popping up everywhere at the moment but none of of Boots near me have them. Think I might have to give into an online order after seeing this! Love your photos too :)
