NYX Love in Florence "Prima Donna" Palette

Friday, September 6, 2013
Hi folks! Two posts for you tonight and this is the first. NYX has quite a few of these little palettes in fun coordinating color schemes. This is actually my second, I just haven't had time yet to review the first one I picked up a few months ago!

Prima Donna contains a frosty beige, a matte black with sparkle, one satiny plum, a shimmery aubergine and a dusty light taupe. Swatched with primer.

The quality is just ok, nothing to write home about but these are shadows that you absolutely NEED primer to wear. Without them, they do not show up very well and look rather muddy when you try to blend with them. You can sort of see on the bottom half of my swatches where the primer was blended out and how patchy they look over bare skin. I like the shimmery white beige quite a bit, ti's so pretty!

I think the colors photographed a bit more red than they are in real life. Definitely looks more pink eye in the picture.  I used the two plummy shades all over the lid, lightly dusted the beige in my inner corer and smudged the black into the lash line.

The nice thing is that NYX products are very affordable so it's easy to pick a few new palettes up just to play with color you might normally shy away from. 

Have you tried any of the newer NYX products lately?
