When I saw that they were having a sale on NYX products on Cherryculture, I jumped at the chance to pick up a few things that I’d been wanting for a while.
The first thing I had to get was some of the Single Eye shadows. The colours (from left to right) are: Luxor, Purple, Golden, Hawaiian Coffee, Silver, Golden Dune and Greyish Brown.
I’ve never used the single eye shadows before, so the first thing I did was swatch them – without a base of course!

Silver, Golden Dune, Greyish Brown
Wow. The colour payoff is amazing on all of them except for the Purple. Purple, you’re really letting the team down!
I would have to say that Golden Dune and Hawaiian Coffee are my favourites so far. Golden Dune really reminds me of the MAC Pigment in Blonde’s Gold. Beautiful!
I am a sucker for eye shadow palettes, so next I chose The Runway Collection in Caviar & Bubbles:
Swatches: (again, without a base!)
The lighter colours don’t show up so well in photos, but they are really nicely pigmented! Even though the Black is a little chalky – this is a really nice palette and would be absolutely perfect for travel!
Lastly I decided to grab a couple of Butter Lip Glosses. The colours I got are Peaches And Cream and Vanilla Cream Pie

They smell so damn good, and that is coming from someone who hates anything that smells sweet – but for some reason, I love the smell of these! Shaaanxo said they remind her of the Bavarian crème donuts from Dunkin’ Donuts, and I totally agree. Delicious!
They actually have pretty decent colour payoff for a lip gloss, and don’t feel too sticky and gross either which is really nice!
Once again I am impressed by NYX products, they really are a brand worth checking out.
Thanks for viewing!
