NYX Single Eyeliner Set Swatches

Hey everyone! So here are the swatches of what I received in my eyeliner set.

This photo is a little dull. I tried to fix it up a little. So keep in mind that the colors are a little bit different

*Ocean is a little more of a royal blue compared to this photograph. But as you can see it is very opaque.
*Baby Green is pretty much true to color but it is just slightly brighter.
*Dark Brown looks black in this picture. It pretty much is that, but with a brown/red undertone.
*White is exactly that...  white.
*Blue eyes isn't that opaque which really upsets me, but if you make it thick you can really see it's gorgeous color.
*Pink looks kind of on the Violet side. Just look at the font color of the word "pink" and tone it down slightly and that is the color. 

I hope you enjoyed this post!

NYX Over the Rainbow Single Eyeshadow Collection Swatches

Hey everyone! So I finally got a good picture of swatches of the NYX eyeshadows. Here they are!

As you can see they have pretty good color payoff.
*The swatch of "Seafoam Green" is not true to color in this photograph. It is more of an emerald color.
*As you can see "Hot Yellow" is not that pigmented but it would be a very nice highlight color.

I really like all of these colors and I can't wait to use them.

Swatches for the eyeliners that I got will be in another post. 

I hope you enjoyed!

NYX Single Eyeliner Set

Hey everyone! So I got another package from Hautelook today and it was the NYX Single Eyeliner set.
As you can see in the above photograph it also came with a white eyeshadow. I will have the swatches of these liner and the white eyeshadow in another blogpost. I am also doing that with the Over the Rainbow collection.



This bright, blue eyeliner is very metallic. The true color of it is a little paler than the packaging shows, but only by the slightest bit. Blue eyeliner is very popular for this fall. Just a light wash of color and then a blue cat eye is gorgeous and super trendy.


This baby, blue is a very pretty pastel with a subtle green undertone. If you want to keep some summer pastels with you this fall then this is the eyeliner for you. 


This pale, pink is such a girly color and I absolutely love it. It is very metallic and shiny. It is the perfect eyeliner for you if you are going for just a light look with some pale color.


This eyeliner is pretty much self-explanatory. It is white. It is the perfect snow, white that you can use with any other colors. You might, however, have to do two coats to make it really white.


This pastel, green has a really pretty sheen to it. I, personally, am really pleased with the color payoff. It is a lot better than I expected. Green is also a really great color to make brown eyes "pop." 


This is the perfect liner if you are looking to do the perfect, classic cat eye but not have it so... black. It may not look as different to you, but but brown makeup (eyeliner, mascara, etc.) can really make a classic look stay classic but not as dramatic. 

The set also came with a shimmery, white eyeshadow:


This is just your classic shimmery, white. It has very good pigmentation for a white, so it would be the perfect highlight. It isn't so pigmented that is looks like white-out but it isn't so sheer that you can't even see it. 

Swatches for the eyeliner and eyeshadow will be in another post. 

I hope you enjoyed!

NYX Over the Rainbow Single Eyeshadow Collection

Hey everyone! So yesterday I got a package in the mail from Hautelook. If you don't know what Hautelook is, it's basically a site where makeup, clothing, furniture, baby toys and even getaways go on sale for 50% - 75% off! A couple of weeks ago NYX cosmetics went on sale. I ordered the "Over the Rainbow" single eyeshadow collection and an eyeliner set. (though that isn't arriving until tomorrow.) I really wanted to get swatches of these but i can't find a good spot with the perfect lighting to pick up the colors. But you will definitely see these in tutorials to come. For now I will give you a general review of the colors.



This color is very sheer although it still has a pretty good color payoff. When it is applied wet it has a slightly better pigmentation. I would probably use this color as an inner corner highlight when wet and a brow highlight, very softly, when dry. This could also be a really pretty "all over the lid" color when wet.


This color is color is definitely sheer. Applied wet or dry, it is just yellow shimmer. regardless the fact that it is just yellow shimmer it is still a gorgeous color for a highlight.


This color is called "seafoam green" though I think it is more on the emerald side. Now aside from that it is a gorgeous color. It has amazing shimmer and great pigmentation wet and dry. I can not wait to wear this color.


This is the only matte color in this collection and it is probably my favorite. It is a very soft color with pretty good pigmentation. When applied wet it is a more vivid blue as opposed to dry when it is more of a sky blue. I love matte shadows because sometimes shimmery shadows can be overpowering.


This is probably the prettiest navy blue I have ever seen. The pigmentation is not as good as I anticipated but I feel if you pack it on enough you could get the color you want. There doesn't seem to be that dramatic of a difference when applied wet.


Purple is a color that is flattering on all skin tones and can make any eye color pop. It's pretty sheer when dry, but again you can just pack it on to make it vivid. When it's wet it is pretty intense compared to the dry application.

When I receive the eyeliners that I purchased I will review those as well. Hopefully I can get good swatches of these colors. When I do I will post them as soon as possible.

I hope you enjoyed this post! If you would like to see me review this in a video just let me know. If I do that I would probably be able to get better swatches than a photograph. Just let me know what you want and I would be happy to do it.
