My fantastic older sister sent me a huge NYX haul from cherry culture for my upcoming birthday on the 14th. I think she got me more than I asked for... Yay for lovely sisters! :D
From L to R:
NYX Girls Special Glitter Nail Polish in 229 and 251
NYX Eyeshadow Trio in Team Spirit
NYX Mosaic Powder Blush in Paradise
NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil in Pots and Pans, Oyster, and Cottage Cheese
Free Cherry Culture lip gloss
NYX Single Eyeshadows in:
-Hot Pink (matte)
NYX Round Lipstick in Circe
Here are the shadows with flash:
Swatches were taken with NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil in Cottage Cheese as a base, without and with flash. Aren't plum and morocco gorgeous with flash?
Mosaic blush in Paradise and Jumbo eyeshadow pencils in cottage cheese, oyster, and pots and pans. These all have more sheen than the photo shows, and Paradise is redder.
Team Spirit Eyeshadow trio without and with base. I love these colors!
I really love some of the colors I got this time, especially the eyeshadows. There are some great shades for the holidays like plum and mermaid green. Lime juice is this amazing acid yellow-green color that I wore as a highlighter today on a green look, which turned out really cool. Morocco is also a surprise as it looks blue in the pot but turns a beautiful, indigo purple when swatched.
All were smooth and highly pigmented as usual, although Golden Dune was a bit crumbly with its shimmer. Luster in my last haul was similarly crumbly and Herb is the smoother and more pigmented cousin of Luster. They look almost the same in the pot but SO different in real life. I'll have to do comparison swatches of my olives, browns, and greens soon.
Anyway, just wanted to leave you all with my salute. This is the real Jen! Wonky eyebrows and all. ;)
