When the lovely Hayley sent me the new NYX Love in Paris Eyeshadow palette* to try, I was excited to say the least. I have been a fan of NYX products for as long as I can remember so it's lovely seeing how big their range has grown over the years! The palette I have been using for the past few weeks is called Love in Paris 01 A La Mode. This little kit is everything you need for creating a range of different smokey eye looks. Whether you prefer warm brown shadows, soft greys or intense black smokey eyes, this palette lets you create all three! I tend to stick with brown tones when it comes to my eyeshadow, but I really like how versatile this palette is. The size of the NYX palette is ideal for fitting in your make-up bag and it's even better that you can take it with you for a night out.
Focusing on the pigmentation, I have to say I was really impressed. The shades blended really well and there was hardly any fall out when I used the darker colours. As you can see from my swatches, the shades are really easy to build up. There are a few shimmery tones which I think goes really well for the winter time! Out of all the shades, I was really impressed with how strong and pigmented the white powder is - it's perfect for highlighting your brow bone and even highlighting your cupids bow and centre of your nose. I can't rave enough about this palette - it is definitely replacing my Naked 3 dupe that I've been using recently! What NYX products are you using at the moment?
