NYX Madeleines And Macaroons Eyeshadow Palette Review

When NYX first arrived at Target I went crazy and bought so many things before they went out the window...Madeleines and Macaroons from Love in Paris Collection by NYX inspired by the city of love Paris was one of the palette I have always wanted to get so as soon as I saw this I wasted no time and grabbed it without even swatching the shades,,,

The palette comes with 9 gorgeous shades and the packaging is super simple and sleek with a little bow sitting at the opening,,It also comes with a little eyeshadow brush but I don't use these kind of brushes,,,too small for me to work with...

Moving on to the shades the palette is more on a neutral side containing light,dark and shimmery shades to create smokey eye or even just a natural and day look.

Three of the shades are slightly shimmery and the rest are all matte.Most of the shadows included in this palette are nicely pigmented except the two which is the lightest pink and almost white requiring a base I use eyeshadow base by NYX when using this palette.

First 3 shades are from upper row of the palette starting from left sorry my camera would not pick the first almost white shade and next 3 shades are from the 2nd row and rest belongs to the bottom row.

The staying power is great and lasted me all day during my recent trip to the city,,The only thing I want to point out is the fallout of shimmers but using a wet brush this problem was solved too.

Price $16.95

It's a great travel friendly palette for everyday use and also comes in Merci Beaucoup,Be Our Guest Maurice,Parisan Church,Je Ne Sais Quoi.
