NYX Eyeshadows | Review & Swatches | EmmyWritesAbout

Hello lovelies, how was your weekend? Do anything interesting? Friday night me and the other half went to the cinema to watch “The Drop” if you haven’t heard of it, it only came out on Friday but its basically a film about mobsters and crime but its really interesting and has a good twist. Saturday we went into town did a little Christmas shopping. Im pretty much finished already! Im so impressed with myself, usually I leave it until last minute. I recently placed an order with NYX online and got quite a few bits so I will do a post for each rather than all in one. Todays post is about a few eyeshadows I picked up. I picked up two matte shades and one glitter. I find it really hard to get a good matte shade. So here we go…

Underneath it all | Lap Dance | Boost

Underneath it all | £5.00

This is a pretty shade which I find works best to use in the crease. It’s a simple shade but not like any of my others I have. I always use a eye primer before shadows and I find it helps this last most of the day.

Lap Dance | £5.00

I ordered this as I do have the naked basics palette and find the nude/natural shades aren’t that great and don’t impress me. This shade is perfect and exactly what I wanted. I use this all over my lid either on its own for the natural look or use it as a base to apply other shadows.

Boost | £5.50

One of my new favourites. This is from there Glam Shadow Range. The shade is stunning. Im loving gold and bronze tones as they make my blue eyes pop. I love applying this one all over my lid and use a dark shade in the crease to create the smokey look. Id go as far as saying this is as good as Mac eye shadows.

Boost | Underneath it all | Lap Dance

I love these shadows so much. I will definitely be buying more. I will admit there is one downfall with boost…I do hold a piece of tissue under my eye whilst I apply this shade as you do get a little fallout but not much. Overall these are amazing. They have so many shades.
