NYX Love You So Mochi Eyeshadow Palettes – Review & Swatches

Affiliate

Today I am bringing you another new NYX review. I have SO many products to review so be on the lookout every day.

I have both NYX Love You So Mochi Eyeshadow Palettes. These came out earlier this year, I believe. I have reviewed many NYX palettes before and I am amazed every time. Click here to see my past reviews.

Details:

Explore a rainbow of color with NYX Professional Makeup’s Love You So Mochi Eyeshadow Palettes! Available in gorgeous color combinations, this striking set features ten bouncy, silky-to-the-touch, eyeshadows in a range of matte and shimmer finishes. Spoiler alert: You are going to freak out when you feel these soft and pillowy shades for the first time – the marshmallow-like texture reminds us of our fave Japanese treat – mochi!

 

NYX Love You So Mochi Sleek and Chic Eyeshadow Palette

 

NYX Love You So Mochi Electric Pastels Eyeshadow Palette

 

Review:

Both of these palettes are available on Ulta.com and the NYX Cosmetics website.

These palettes didn’t really WOW me, partly because I LOVE matte shadows and these are all shimmery shadows. If you love shimmery shadows or the colors of these shadows then you will love these palettes.

The eyeshadow formula is good. It is nice, creamy, and blends well. They work better with your finger rather than a brush, but they still work with a brush, the pigmentation isn’t as great though. Both eyeshadow formulas perform the same, but I prefer the Sleek and Chic eyeshadow palette because of the shade selection. I will say that the one shade that disappointed me from that palette is the dark black shade. The pigmentation is really sheer for that one, as you can see from the swatches.

Another downfall is the price. I feel like $20 is too much for this palette. It think it should be priced closer to $12-$15. Ulta always has sales on NYX products so wait for a sale to pick one up.

NYX Faux Marble Lipsticks – Review & Swatches (all 9 shades)

Affiliate

 

If you know me then you should know that I LOVE reviewing NYX products, especially lip products! Click here to see all of my past NYX reviews.

NYX always kills it when it comes to their spring launches. Each year it gets better and better. This spring killed it as well. Be on the lookout for my future reviews because I pretty much bought everything!

Today I am reviewing and searching the new NYX Faux Marble Lipsticks. These came out earlier in the year and they must have been a hit because there are slim pickins’ left on the Ulta site. I hope they restock soon!

Cost: $8.99

Where to buy: click here

 

 

Details:

Brilliant hues artfully swirled together in just one lippie. Yep, the limited-edition NYX Professional Makeup Faux Marble Lipstick is a thing of beauty. Each color combination blends together as you swipe and becomes a seriously stunning shade of its very own, revealing that no two lipsticks are the same. Choose from four gorgeous colors that glide on soft and smooth while leaving lips with a satin finish.

Shades:

  • Berry
  • So Anti
  • Chill Chill
  • Primrose
  • As if
  • Bless
  • Dayum
  • Periwinkle
  • Lilac

 

Review:

To sum it up, I really love these Faux Marble Lipsticks! I feel like they are really innovative and there isn’t really anything else on the market like these.

They have kind of a duo chrome affect and they look really cool on the lips. I really like to use the lighter shades as a lipstick topper, just to give your lips more dimension.

I will say that the lighter shades don’t give as much pigmentation, but they give a nice shimmery color shift to the lips. The darker shades have the perfect amount of pigmentation and they all go on the lips smoothly and feel comfortable.

You will have to reapply this throughout the day because the lasting power isn’t as long because it’s a  lipstick.

One more not, these do not have any sort of fragrance. They almost smell like crayons. It doesn’t bother me and the smell doesn’t linger.

Overall these are amazing lipsticks and totally worth the buy!!

Are you guys ready for this? There is finally an amazing high-end looking matte drugstore palette! The first time I saw this palette I thought it was a Stila eyeshadow palette. The packaging and layout looks very similar. I cannot wait!!

I loved the Milani Everyday Eyes Eyeshadow Palettes. They are hands down the best drugstore eyeshadow palettes. Click here to see my reviews.

Been the lookout because I just bought this and will definitely do a review.
