Hi Divas! Happy Saturday!
I wanted to do a quick blog entry on a palette I absolutely LOVE! It can definitely be an inexpensive alternative to the Naked Palette by Urban Decay with a little less colors on it. With this palette you can do so many makeup looks to daytime neutral eye to a dark smoldering smokey eye.
Nyx The Runway Collection – 10 Color Eyeshadow Palette
“Bohemian Rhapsody” – I picked this up on http://www.nyxcosmetics.com for $10! However I am not seeing it being sold anymore. I am sure you can find it sold on other sites.
The colors are amazing! The bottom 5 colors are matte. The top 5 colors are shimmery/glittery. The specific names for each color are not mentioned on the packaging. The nice thing about it is you can mix the matte and shimmer for ultimate depth and contrast. These colors look amazing and are very pigmented. The colors are packed in the pan very tightly which is FABULOUS! The matte colors can be a little chalky but you can calm them down with some good eye primer like Urban Decay Primer Potion or MAC Paint in Bare Canvas.
Top Row: (Shimmer) Left to Right
Glittery Blue: this color is amazing. It is not scrub blue (it’s almost like a heavenly lighter color of periwinkle but classier w/ glitter) – it has the perfect sparkle and will light up ANYONE’S eyes.
Soft Glittery Taupe: this color is similar to SideCar in the Naked Palette. Has beautiful shimmer/sparkle but not heavy.
Soft Brown Shimmer: gorgeous neutral color
Dark Taupe Shimmer: gorgeous color
Soft Copper Shimmer: this is a nice shimmery light copper. Beautiful for any color eyes!
Bottom Row: (Matte) Left to Right
Tan Peach: this color is a mix of matte tan, beige and peach.
Soft Ocre or Brule: this is a bone color or a color to match fair/light skin tones. Perfect as a base from lid to brow. Perfect dupe to MAC Brulee eyeshadow.
Matte Brown: this color is a mix between light and dark brown. Meets right in the middle.
Dark Taupe Grey: this color is a dark smoldering matte color.
Dark Black/Charcoal: very pigmented black.
Packaging is nice. A large mirror lets you utilize this to do eyeshadow on the go or travel. It comes with a sponge applicator (which I hate…but in case of emergency!) The packaging is slim and chic and can fit in your purse perfectly. It is not a heavy palette.
Hope you enjoyed! I recommend this palette and would buy again and again! XO!
XO! Until next time, have a diva style weekend! Stay gorgeous!
