Mini Eye Shadow Haul + Face of The Day

So in keeping with the spirit of playing with colors; I purchased a few NYX eye shadows over the weekend [$1.99ea], and I am extremely pleased with them all! I was eager to try the NYX eye shadows [after falling in love with those pencils mentioned in this post.], and I am glad I did!

I really wanted to do a youtube video of this look, but the lighting was all types of crazy.  So I just resorted to doing this face of the day instead. I am going to have to do my makeup videos during the day. Duly noted.

I used the following to achieve this look:
- Urban Decay Primer Potion
- NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil in Gold [as a base all over lid]
- NYX Yellow Pearl [inner lid]
- NYX Charcoal [outer "v"]
- Ulta Lip Liner in Flesh
- Nars Lipgloss in Giza
- MAC Blush in Love Rush
- Stila Bad Gal Mascara [my fav for more of a natural dark lash]

Here are the shadows I purchased over the weekend; All of them go on smooth, and are highly pigmented!

Princess Pink [Dupe for MAC Expensive Pink]


Charcoal [Dupe for MAC Knight Divine]

Yellow Pearl [Dupe for MAC Going Bananas]

Swatched Colors [Left to Right]: Yellow Pearl, Charcoal, Princess Pink, Navy
