NYX Perfect Filter Shadow Palette

Hi beauties!

How is the New Year going for you so far? I hope you’re keeping warm!

We had an Arctic cold front come through Vancouver last week, but it’s warmed up (phew!). Since I’m originally from Winnipeg, I know we’re pretty lucky out here on the West coast, so I’ll stop now.

I always like to keep my eye on what’s new in makeup (although I usually don’t go hard-core). For the last few months, I’ve noticed that burgundy or maroon shades are trending.

One of the best palettes for trying out this range of shades is the NYX Perfect Filter Shadow Palette in Rustic Antique.

This palette comes with 10 shades in matte and shimmer finishes. The colors are highly pigmented, super soft, and blend well.

Here’s a rundown of the shades (starting in the upper left corner):

  1. This is a matte ivory-white shade.
  2. This is a matte maroon shade.
  3. This is a matte nude shade.
  4. This is a shimmery gold shade.
  5. This ia a shimmery peachy beige shade.
  6. This is a matte dark peach shade with a hint of gold.
  7. This is a matte orange shade.
  8. This is a shimmery copper shade on the red side.
  9. This is a shimmery dark plum shade.
  10. This is a semi-matte cranberry shade.

The only drawback for this palette is that it doesn’t come with a mirror. However, the quality and quantity of the shades makes it worth picking up if you want to explore burgundy shades!

Happy 2018 everyone. 🎉🍸💋

NYX Velvet Matte Lipstick Collection

3 Dec

Matte lips have been really popular this year with a lot of brands getting in on the trend.

If you want to toss your gloss and give matte lips a try, NYX has an update to their matte lipsticks with the Velvet Matte Lipstick line.

The texture of the NYX Matte Velvet Lipstick is a creamy formula that easily glides on a thin coat of color. The velvety finish makes this matte lipstick a comfortable wear.

The color is richly pigmented and has long-lasting capability. After a cup of coffee (or two), the color faded only slightly. I did notice that when I applied my favorite lip primer before the lipstick, it lasted longer.

Now, let’s talk about the shades in the collection. There are 12 of them, and they’re exactly what you’d expect for fall 2016: pinks, nudes, reds, and a few “out there” shades like blue and purple đź’ś.

If you’re looking for an affordable matte look, check out these stunning shades in the collection (starting with the four bold shades in the photo):

  • Volcano–Deep Red
  • Effervescent–Coral Pink
  • Beach Casual–Sandy Nude
  • Unicorn Fur–Purply Pink
  • Blood Love–Traditional Red
  • Charmed–Brick Red
  • Disorderly–Bright Blue
  • Duchess–Deep Purple
  • Miami Nights–Hot Pink
  • Midnight Muse–Navy Blue
  • Soft Femme–Mauvy Red
  • Violet Voltage–Purple with blue undertones
