I decided to review some NYX palettes that I had gotten about a month ago but have used quite a bit and in general have really liked. I know the Love In Paris palettes aren't really new but I hadn't really had a chance to pick them up since NYX isn't sold anywhere near me. During the end of summer NYX was on Hautelook and I decided to pick up a few things. Among my little NYX haul was 3 of the Love In Paris Palettes.
Each palette has 9 eyeshadow colors that are a good size, about the size of a postage stamp. There are 12 palettes in total but I only picked up 3. Since I knew we were going into fall I picked out three that were neutral/fall colors that I thought I would get a lot of use out of. There are some palettes that are brighter and more colorful in the collection, if that is more your style.
The packaging is really nice. I like that the front is see through so you can see exactly what colors you are getting in the palette. I also think the little bow that clasps the palette shut is adorable. Even the smaller palettes in this line have that little bow. It is pretty solid packaging so I think it would be safe to bring this palette in a makeup bag or to take it with you when you are traveling. You can see the little bows in the picture above.
Each palette costs $10 which I think is reasonable for the quantity and quality of the shadows. I got mine in sets so there were other products with my palettes but they were still very reasonable. You can purchase them at Ulta.com of on the NYX website.
Now let's dig a little deeper and talk about the palettes specifically.
The Palette above is C'est La Vie which is a wonderful little palette for fall. It is perfect with a nice mixture of greens, neutrals, and cranberry colors.
These are the next to rows. The 3 on the right are in the middle row. First you have an off white matte highlight color. Perfect for the brow bone. Next you have a warm brown shimmer shade. Lastly you have a grayish taupe with a satin finish. That shade is a dream. It is so smooth and rich. The bottom row starts with a bright blue satin. It is almost matte but there is a little bit of a sheen to it though on the lid it is unnoticeable. Next you have a warm toned shimmer shade. Lastly you have a dark grey glitter shadow. The glitter produces no fall out.
Overall, I also really like this palette. All of the shades are good quality and go on even and smooth. I would call this the day to night palette. It gives you all the colors for a neutral natural day look but gives you the perfect colors to amp is up at night. To create a little POW!!
I would really like to get a few more of the palettes because almost all of them were more than worth the money. Have you guys tried any of the other palettes in this line? Let me know below! Also don't forget to follow me on Facebook and Instagram!
