NEW EYE MAKEUP SHADES FROM NYX COSMETICS!




Hi there, my darlings! I have just noticed that all my recent posts had an over-riding theme--SPRING! I hope you, my wonderful readers, aren't tired of the season yet. I mean, it's just begun and I can't be more excited. My first winter in Canada was no joke and I have never been so happy to bask in the sunshine. And get out of boots! And the return of a bit of color to the world! So, with the theme of what's turning out to be my life lately in mind, let's talk about a few new additions from one of my fave brands, NYX Cosmetics. Today, we focus on the latest in eye makeup!


OFF TROPIC PRO LINER ($5.00 USD/$7.00 CAD)

Bring your wildest artistry dreams to life with our all-new Off Tropic Pro Liner! Available in nine vibrant shades ranging from pink and red to yellow, green and blue, this water-resistant formula is perfect for creating bold, beautiful looks. Each creamy shade is rich with bright pigments and dries down to a matte finish that always stands out.

WHAT IT IS: Nine playful professional liners for creating endless editorial looks.

WHAT IT DOES: Makes it easy for the pro-in-training to draw imaginative designs with expert precision.

WHY WE LOVE IT: The water-resistant formula makes it perfect for festival season!

HOW TO USE: Twist each retractable pencil and apply to skin.

Available in 9 shades, I have Crushin' It (left) and Pool Boy shown below.




Part of the brand new Off Tropic collection, these are some beautiful shades! I love the soft tips and the rich pigmentation. Bold colors, especially when applied directly to the lower waterline, bring an unexpected pop of color to your look and that's what I go for, when I play with liners that are not your usual black or brown. The blue, in particular, is so gorgeous!




ULTIMATE SHADOW PALETTE ($18.00 USD/$22.00 CAD)

We named this collection the Ultimate Shadow Palette because that’s exactly what it is—a pro-level palette packed with 16 high-performance eyeshadows and pressed pigments in a rainbow of tone-inspired shades. Available in four striking color combinations—Neutral-Cool, Neutral-Warm, Bright and Smokey/Highlight—each set features a vivid mix of velvety-rich textures and mesmerizing finishes that range from mattes and satins to shimmers and metallics.

Available in 6 themes, I have Ash shown below.



If I had to categorize this particular, I'd put it in the Neutral-Cool category with its moody grays and dusky blues. Yeah, this would be a great palette for Winter but I also think these shades would work for Spring. Now, I'm a fan of both the color pay-off and the pigmentation of the shimmers but this palette has a few great, super pigmented matte shades too. I did find the mattes a little more of a challenge to work with in that they need a heavier hand and would probably be best applied wet. That being said, the dark blue and the black was pigmented enough to make up for any issues with the other mattes!




ULTIMATE EDIT PETITE SHADOW PALETTE ($7.00 USD/$12.00 CAD)

Don’t be fooled by its adorable size—the Ultimate Edit Petite Shadow Palette is small but mighty! Choose from our two best-selling assortments (Brights and Warm Neutrals) and two new shade combinations (Ash and Phoenix). Each travel-friendly palette is packed with six handpicked hues in a vivid mix of velvety-rich textures and mesmerizing finishes.

WHAT IT IS: A trimmed-down version of our best-selling Ultimate Shadow Palette.

WHAT IT DOES: Each creamy-rich shade glides on and delivers the ultimate color payoff.

WHY WE LOVE IT: Perfect for travel or touch-ups on the go.

HOW TO USE: Smooth on primer. Apply base color all over with our Tapered All Over Shadow Brush. Then use the Buffing Brush to apply the darkest color. Blend well.
Available in 4 themes, I have Phoenix shown below.


I saved my favorite for last! Now, these shades totally scream Spring (and yes, probably, Summer) to me! 2 matte shades and 4 shimmers make up this travel-friendly palette. Once again, I found the shimmers much easier to work with, both in terms of pigmentation and color-payoff. They even applied better. That bright matte red? Yeah, it's gorgeous but a bear to work with--I really had to layer it on to get the color to swatch evenly. That being said, I do believe the use of a primer or applying wet would take care of these issues. I love the colors so much that I'm still going to be reaching for it. Just look at that gold!
