NYX Eyeshadows

Have you been curious about NYX's new product that has been spotted around in stores? I sure have! I picked up a few items not too long ago. I already owned a few of the trio palettes, but these new, cute, little quilted print shadows in their sleek black pots were calling my name.

In true Kia fashion, I picked up these little minis. Adorable and great colors for the collection!

Pictured below (l-r) Gypsy, Fahrenheit, and Lime Juice.



Of course I liked these colors because they already existed in my collection! I swatched some colors that I felt the shadows were complete dupes of:
(top) Gypsy, (bottom) my fav Twinks by MAC


(top) Lime Juice, (bottom) Bitter by MAC (I think Eyepopping from the C Shock collection would have been a better match, but I didn't buy that because I already had Bitter! lol)


(top)Fahrenheit, (bottom) Expensive Pink by MAC
I know the flash washed out the swatch but you can see that they are close. Expensive Pink has a bit more gold.


These shadows are velvety with a bit more fall out or maybe I should call it "color pick up" lol, a good buy nonetheless, especially because of the color payoff. If you don't have the MAC colors, definitely pick up the NYX. Each one has a $3.99 price tag.


And from yours truly.. an fotd (umm not using the NYX colors) =)
p.s. don't mind the date stamp! lol

hey karen! yes i'm wearing false lashes. i don't think he noticed or he was sleep.

i will tell you a story though (there's always a story when you bring up babyyum lol). he drew a pic of his dad and told me that his dad has 2 eyes. then he drew me, but i had about 8. i asked him to draw me a pic with just 2 eyes. he said, "you want 2 eyes? with makeups mommy?" "oh yes, please!" i said, lol. gotta love the kids!
