ACCIDENTAL NYX HAUL: SHADOWS, SWATCHES, AND MY FACE 4
And so continues the saga of reviewing my accidental Nyx haul, and let me say that this was the first time I was just overjoyed. All of the shadows I chose went on beautifully and had wonderful color payoff. These are three shadows I would ABSOLUTELY recommend.
I will say that I used my LORAC Pro palette for a highlight under my browbone, for my liner, and for my brows, but I do that for literally all of my makeup looks so like well there’s that.
Metallic shimmer blueish silver
This, um, I was expecting to go on much lighter, so when it went on my upper lid, I was all, “OH WOAH WOWZA YOU ARE NOT A HIGHLIGHT SHADE, YOU ARE A BASE SHADE” but I think it worked out in the end. This shadow went on smooth as a dream, and the metallic finish is just great. It seriously looks like a perfect mix between pure silver and smoke. I absolutely adore it.
Metallic shimmer slate purple
This shade goes on a bit more purple than comes across in the pictures, but only just. This is the one I used on the base of my eyelid. Again, I just absolutely adore this one. It’s fantastic. The color payoff is great. I had to layer a little, but not enough to annoy me—maybe passing over my lid two or three times. I will say it didn’t stuck to my brush very well, but mostly I think it’s because the brush I use for that is garbage. I really need to buy some decent eyeshadow brushes sometime soon.
Dark metallic gray with green shimmer
Okay, so if the Evil Queen from Snow White had a shade, this would be it. Enchanted is the perfect name—it feels like some evil ominous forest with horrifying trees that come out and grab you, and that is literally all I could ask for in a smoky eye crease shade. I will say that this shadow has a LOT of fallout and blended away really fast, but those are quick fixes. This shadow is, basically, the shit.
