Since I’ve now been getting more and more into neutrals , especially matte shades I recently picked up the NYX I Dream of St Kitt’s Palette , a 5 eyeshadow set from their Caribbean Collection. It’s really not like to continually use the same colour combinations and techniques for weeks at a time , but I think I;ve found one of the few palettes , alongside the Stila in the Light Palette that I’d happily use for the rest of my life and still be happy!
What I love about this palette is not only how easy they are to blend , but the mixture of colours and tones that work perfectly together. The palette contains 2 mattes which I’d class as make up essentials – a matte white and medium toned brown that blends beautifully. The other three shades are shimmery shades that feel buttery in texture and and I particulary love the middle shimmery eyeshadow in the palette that gives this neutral palette a warm toned twist.
In the photos above I’ve used all the colours with a base of the NYX Jumbo Eye Penicl in Milk with the two darker shades blended on the lid and a mixture of the lightest shades blended for a gradiant effect on the lids.
I’ve also fallen in love with how creamy the Nyx Round Lipsticks are , courtesy of the brilliant buy one get one free deal they have on their website for Round Lipsticks at the moment. The shade photographed above is Thalia , a my lips but better shade with a purple berry toned twist. They have great staying power and I’m excited to share my growing collection in the coming weeks!
Have any of your tried NYX Palettes or their Round Lipsticks?
