Hello Lovelies… While strolling around Westfield shopping centre I popped into NYX store and made my first unplanned purchase from the brand.
They had a section where you can customise your own palette, I’ve never done my own customised palette so I had to try. They had two sizes of palettes you could choice from, a palette of 4 or a palette of 9. The price difference was only a pound and it’s worth getting the 9 for £5. You had a whole range of colours to choice from, which was awesome and exciting. They had mattes for £4 and shimmery shades for £4.50.
I only wanted to get 3 colours for my first purchase then slowly build the palette. I’ve been struggling to find the perfect nude skin tone as a bace for my eyeshadow or days when I want a more natural eye look and I always found that they are too shimmery and not matte, so I was excited when I saw NYX had this gorgeous pale nude in the shade Naked Truth.
While looking around for what other colours to get I came across Sex Kitten and fell in love with it. A gorgeous nude pink glitter. Works great with the other 2 shades.
I knew straight away that I wanted to find a nice matte orange, when I saw LOL I knew it was the right shade I was looking for. As you see from the image below I only swatch it once and it came our very pigmented.
In total I spent £17.50 for the 3 eyeshadows and the palette. I like the idea of customising your own palette the way you like. I will keep this palette more neutral with nude and warms shades and I will properly get another palette that I can have more vibrant shades in.
While trying to find the shades online, I found that the UK website didn’t have them but the USA did. I do know that in store they have the shades I purchased but I will still link the shades for the Matte refills –link-, the shimmery refill –link– and the palette I did purchase –link– if you did want to customise your own palette.
