NYX Palettes

So I started writing this post with the intention of sharing with you the NYX Winter in Moscow palette.  Then I thought I’d head over to the NYX site to see if it was a one-off special and it….is not.  There are loads of them; all reasonably priced, all beautifully presented and all quietly whispering “buy me Sascha….just think of all the fun we could have…” 🙁

Here are the ones whispering the loudest:

Winter in Moscow
Starting off with the reason behind this post, here’s the Winter in Moscow which contains lots of various takes on smoky greys, paired with two blushes, five lip shades and three applicators.  This is £20 here.
Butt Naked Eye Palette 

Sorry for the crappy cropped image but other than the Winter in Moscow image I’ve had to grab the rest from the site.  This is a palette that’ll inevitably speak to me as it’s built around neutral nudes.  It contains 15 eyeshadows, 4 blushes, 2 highlighters and 1 bronzer as well as a couple of applicators.  It’s £25 here.

Bronze Smokey Look 

I always favour a bronze smoky eye over anything darker as I think it’s much more flattering against my colourings.  This is a fab little kit that’ll no doubt travel well, and it contains 9 eye shadows and 2 lip colours as well as a couple of brushes.  It very much reminds me of the Bobbi Brown party kits that tend to arrive around the party season, but at a much more purse friendly price of £12 here.

Nude on Nude 

This one is quite similar to the Bronze Smokey Eye kit, but with less focus on smokiness and more on neutral shading.  This again contains 9 eyeshadows, 2 lip colours and brushes and is also priced at £12 here.

Beauty To Go

Lastly we have the mother of all palettes that contains a staggering 47 eye shadows, 5 face colours (whatever that may mean….foundation maybe?), 2 eyeshadow bases, 2 face powders, 6 blushers, 4 concealers, 6 lipglosses, 6 lip lacquer pots, 2 lip pencils, 2 eye liners and 1 mascara making this one helluva’ palette! I think this would make the most phenomenal gift for any make-up lover and it’s priced at a very reasonable £40 here.

So my NYX obsession continues.  I’ve now had a good play around with quite a few of their offerings which I’ll be reviewing soon.

    Hi there, I generally love NYX for all kinds of makeup but I have to say I am not a fan of their palettes. The quality of the eye shadows in the palettes is far less superior to the quality of their single shadows. I find the ones in the palettes to be chalky and difficult to blend and not as pigmented. I don’t know why there is a difference but I found this to be the case in both the Moscow Palette and the Nude on Nude.
    Do you find its the same for you or not?
    Many thanks

      Thanks so much for the heads-up Grace! I haven’t tried any of the NYX palettes yet but I haven’t heard that the texture is different; I’ll definitely keep that in mind before I buy any of them though! xx
