HauteLook has NYX on sale this Thursday. You have to sign up to use the site if you aren't already a member, but the deals are worth it. So I thought this would be the perfect time to swatch their loose eye shadows. I also have swatches of NYX Glitter Mania loose glitter.
Here are the Ultra Pearl Mania loose shadows. The top row has no base, middle is Elf Studio Eye Primer, and bottom is a white cream base. Some of these colours work well without any base, but most do need a primer to help them stick. As always, click any picture to enlarge it.
|L to R: White, Pearl, Nude, Baby Blue, Baby Pink, Lilac, Fanta, Grass|
White is actually a true white, even though it looks more cream here. Pearl is a very soft pink-beige. All the others are colour accurate.
|L to R: Lime, Very Pink, Yellow, Orange, Mink, Sky Pink, Yellow Gold|
|L to R: Turquoise, Purple, Ocean Blue, True Purple, Jade, Oro, Orange Zest|
Purple is much more of a pink purple. And True Purple is a medium violet--not too red or blue. My camera hates purples and tries to make them as blue as possible.
|L to R: Space, Penny, Rust, Silver, Mocha, Walnut, Black|
Walnut is richer and a bit darker than it looks here. Black is the only one I had trouble swatching. It seemed a little patchy and isn't quite black enough.
The only one I'm missing is Charcoal, so I'll probably be picking that up on Thursday. And I hope there's a good selection of lashes. Are you planning to buy anything during the HauteLook NYX sale? What are you most looking forward to?
