NYX Glitter Cream Pallet Review

After seeing these new palettes around at various stores I finally decided to try it out. The specific one I purchased was 09 sweet chocolate browns. I chose this one because it was the most neutral out of all of them and I figured I’d get he most use out of it. There are many different ones!

Each one comes with 5 glitters that are highly concentrated. 4 out of the 5 are chunkier and one is a finer glitter. At first when swatching the colors with my finger it was hard to get a concentrated glitter swatch. I found it actually very useful to use the applicators that they supply.

Since this is a cream product I made sure when using it on my eyes to apply a primer and an eyeshadow over the primer to provide a good base reasonably free of oil to prevent creasing. I wore it twice. Once was before heading to work and once was before a day off where I ran random errands and so on so I could see how it held up.

My verdict: there is creasing that occurs but I found that if you apply the primer and eyeshadow then the glitter THEN apply again the eyeshadow over the glitter or a translucent powder over it, it can aid in preventing creasing. When removing makeup the glitter is very hard to completely take away. You will notice a few left over glitter specs for a day. What I liked was the glitter payoff. It is very buildable or you can apply just a little.

I wouldn’t necessaryily purchase another pallet for a few reasons. One being that I don’t have many occasions where is want to have glitter eyes. Two, the other colors available are very vibrant and I probably wouldn’t utilize them as often except a gold pallet I saw.

Overall I like the product and would recommend it to you. Just try different application techniques to find what works with your skin and oil scale.

Thanks for reading

Tired? Partied Too Hard? Look Awake INSTANTLY!

We all have those long nights here and there. Either we work long hours, have unusually early mornings or maybe you were lucky enough to have a night out with friends and some Jack Daniels 😉

This is my GO TO look for when I feel like my face is showing my mental drag.

Plus ill share some awesome tips to enhance any look even if you feel awake!

First tip:
Always use light colored eyeshadows, dark ones can close up the eyes.

Focus a shimmer eyeshadow near the tear duct to open up the eyes.

When doing mascara make sure to get every eyelash and position them to go up and away, making your eyes look bigger.
Under the eye use a pink toned concealed, it will cancel out dark circles. A good one that works is Benefit’s Erase Paste. Perfect tone, be sure to cover with powder since it is super creamy. You don’t want it falling off 🙂

A tip I always use is putting a white cream under the eyebrow arch and the inner corner. For this I use NYX jumbo pencil in white and blend it in with my finger. This is so good and helping your eyebrows look more defined, lifted, and helping you look awake.

Tight line the lower lash line with white or nude eye liner.

My two pictures should help to see where to place these products. If requested enough ill make a video for you all.

Hope this helps!
