NYX – Jumbo Eye Pencils


NYX – Jumbo Eye Pencils

What Nyx says: A radiant eye liner that also doubles as an eye shadow. Made with a blend of mineral oil and powder, our creamy Jumbo Eye Pencils glide on effortlessly—no pulling, tugging or fading—and come in a rainbow of vivid hues. Some call her chubby. We say voluptuous.

Sleek – Eau La La Liner

Sleek Eau La La Liner

I was very excited when Sleek released the Eau La La Liners and immediately bought one in the colour Melba. I was impressed with the swatch, however shortly after I bought it the lead came off. I can still use it, but it is quite annoying, because I have to be careful that the lead stays in the packaging. Though I was dissapointed I thought I give those liners another try and bought one in the colour Cobalt Blue. Unfortunately I have the same issue with it, the lead just fell out immediately after I first opened it. Although I like the idea of the liners that can be used on your eyes and lips and come in a big range of colours, I am not satisfied with the quality of the product.

NewIn: Catrice Geometrix Eyeshadow Palette

Catrice’s latest Limited Edition called Geometrix is obviously inspired by works of Mondrian: “A graphical game with coloured surfaces. The master of neo plasticism: Piet Mondrian. As demonstrated by the Spring/Summer 2013 catwalk trends, his geometric austerity of black grids on a white background with colourful squares inside continues to inspire numerous designers to this day. The Limited Edition “Geometrix” by CATRICE offers the ideal make-up styles to go with this trend in April and May 2013. Extremely authentic with geometric designs and a colour scheme comprising classic primary colours and contrasting bright shades. Neo-plasticism by CATRICE.” I could not resist buying the eyeshadow palette. To get some inspiration how to use it, check Anni’s blog or Beautymango.

Sleek – Aqua Collection

Got to love the new Sleek Limited Edition called ‘Aqua Collection’! The blush is a lovely pink blush with a little bit of golden shimmer. I read very different descriptions of the blush, some saying it is a very cold pink, other saying it is a very warm pink. I think it is worth comparing a couple of swatches to make up your mind about it before you buy it.

The eyeshadow palette has some very lovely, mostly shimmery, shades that remind me of vacation and summer. Thus, I would have probably expected the edition to be released in summer instead of now, where at least in Europe we still have Winter pretty much. 😉

See more swatches of the Lagoon Palette on the blogs of MissXtraVaganz  and LetzMakeup. More swatches of the ‘Mirrored Pink’ Blush can be found at GetGawjus and RosesOfBeauty.

NYX Blush in #11 Taupe

NikkiTutorials compares her favorite blusher NYX Taupe with MAC Taupe. She uses this blush for contouring, which is why I decided to give it a go as well. Absolutely love it, especially during winter when I am extra pale.

NYX Lipliner in (from top to bottom) #817 Hot Red, #836 Bloom, #838 Purple Rain and #54 Pale Pink

Interesting comparison of NYX Lipliners with the ones by Mac at Crueltyfree Kit.
