More NYX Eye Shadows – Swatches

Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 13 - 2010

My latest NYX eye shadow acquisitions for your viewing pleasure!

Sparkle Cedar is a weird one, it really is as ‘gritty’ as it appears in the photo.  It’s the only disappointment in the bunch though.

These are such great value for money, but I’m a bit NYX’ed out now and can’t decide if I want any more…  Have you made any NYX purchases recently?  Re-inspire me to buy some more!

    I ordered two NYX Runway palettes around New Year, haven’t got them in my hands yet but they have been delivered. Also got a round lipstick and a round lipgloss (Sorbet, because I saw it on here and it looked lovely!).

    They will be up on my blog as soon as I get them here.

    What lovely names they all have! Where do you buy your NYX stuff?

  3. ndoodles says:

    NOPE, haven’t made any NYX stuff. I’m not crazy about their round lipsticks – there was A LOT of hype about them. I might pick up a blush and maybe 2 more shadows… but I’m pretty much NYX’ed out too 😀

    i only have one nyx trio palette..can’t really remember what it’s called..but i wouldn’t say they were very pigmented..

    I can’t seem to make the plunge and buy anything from NYX, although the prices are INSANELY awesome. Just trying save money ’round here. Stop tempting me with your awesome shadows and their lovely pigmentation, hehe (j/k) :)

    I love NYX for quality and affordability, but I haven’t made any purchases as of late. There’s so much to try but… errr… I really don’t know what holding me back.

    Those eye shadows seem great, and the swatches, too. Thank you

    I ordered some new colors of the nyx singles. They’re in the mail :) I hope I didn’t ordered Sparkle Cedar O_O

    Oh no, i ordered sparkle cedar the other day!!! Also ordered dune, herb, root beer, champagne, rust, and iced mocha, together with 2 lipliners (in mauve and toast), a round lipstick (in tea rose), 2 lipglosses in True Red and Strawberry, and some blotting sheets- all for under £28, from Cherry Culture!!
