Just a quickie to whet your appetite whilst I’m busy. Six of my favourite NYX trios. All are pearl except TS13 – the two pinks and the blue. Purple/Deep Purple/Prune is possibly my absolute favourite – it does fantastic smokey purple eyes.

Available from: Cherryculture.com, Ebay, various drugstores in US and Canada

I first saw these palettes on Nessasary Makeup when the lovely Vanessa did a look using the ‘Tease’ set (which was also called Pixie at some point). Inspired by the colours, the price, and Vanessa’s reviews, I ordered 6 sets – Tease, Enchanted, Wildflower, Fabulous, Unforgettable, and Tea Time.

I lurve lurve lurve my eyeshadow pencils, and NYX Jumbos are some of the best.

Creamy, pigmented and overall fab, they are great for both lining and colouring the whole lid. Lemon, a fizzy green with golden sparkles, is one of my favourites at the moment, whilst Oyster and Purple are also both iridecent (Oyster is cool pinky lilac with blue iridescence, and Purple is a cool two-tone blue-purple). Because they are quite waxy my tip for getting these babies to last and last is to apply a good base first, such as Benefit Lemonaid, or MAD Minerals Eyeshadow Primer Base. With both products I apply two thin layers, blotting it well into my skin, then allow to set for a few minutes before continuing with colour. Afterwards, set the Jumbo Pencil with a light dusting of transluscent powder or a mineral finishing or setting powder.
