NYX – In Your Element Earth Palette
I’ve been looking for an affordable everyday make up palette for some time and I think I may have found it!
NYX Cosmetics have been smashing the game recently, from amazing liquid lipsticks to the beautiful eyeshadow palettes. I can across the ‘ In Your Element” range whilst randomly surfing the standard make up sites and this caught my eye.
The packaging is so funky. It looks like the inside of a kaleidoscope! It’s so compact and perfect for your on the go makeup bag. It’s pretty sturdy to….I’ve already dropped it once and so far no damage!
In all of the In Your Element palettes, there is a mix of 12 beautiful matte and shimmer shades. Would you believe it all the shade coincides with the theme I chose the earth palette because I have brown eyes and as soon as I saw this I knew I’d be able to make this work and it really does make my eyes pop!
My only criticism would be that it takes a bit of work for colour pay off, I have to dip into it a few times until I get a colour I’m completely satisfied with. I also suggest using a primer underneath for maximum payoff. Once on it’s super easy to blend with other shades.
I got my palette from the Nyx Cosmetics site directly for £25. It’s not that bad however I think I’d rather save and buy the Urban Decay palettes. It’s nice to have in the collection but for something that’s £25, I’d expect a little better colour pay off.
As much as I did like the palette and the mix of shades, I don’t think I’d go back to NYX Cosmetics for the eyeshadows….but I’ll still be loyal to their lip products because those are most definitely worth the money and I certainly have my eye on the Lippie Countdown Advent Calendar!
