Lucky me – I won another baking-themed palette! This is the NYX Love In Paris 02 – Madeleines and Macaroons palette which I won in a competition on Beauty Bliss’s Facebook Page. I’ve swatched them all and will also be showing how it looks on my face!
NYX Love in Paris 02 – Madeleines and Macaroons palette is a small palette in a sturdy plastic casing with 9 different shadows – shimmery and matte nudes, beiges and pink. It comes with a standard double ended foam applicator which is good in a pinch but I prefer to use brushes. I swatched them all, so let’s have a look. They go from top left along and down each of the three row – the shades don’t have names.
I really like these shades, the gold and shimmery brown especially. The pink is slightly chalky but I think it would blend well with other colours.
I wore some of the brown shadows in the look below, including the matte brown on a wet brush as an eyeliner. I couldn’t capture it very well in the not-great lighting, but the shimmer from the left of the above swatch was along my brow bone and looked really nice. On a side note, isn’t it strange how on one eye you can see more of the lid than the other?
The lipstick above is Karen Murrell Coral Dawn*, by the way – It’s a beauty.
The shadows didn’t wear terrrrrribly well over the course of the night but they weren’t too bad, and it would be better over primer. I just wore it without because I wanted to see how well they lasted on their own. I think this is a pretty good little palette, a nice variety of shades, and it would travel well because it has a secure closure. NYX doesn’t test on animals but they are now owned by L’Oreal so that may be a concern for some cruelty-free shoppers.
NYX Love in Paris 02 – Madeleines and Macaroons palette is available on Beauty Bliss for $18. I think this is a really good price considering you get nearly twice as much shadow as you do for similarly priced quads from other brands. To purchase, go to BeautyBliss.co.nz
