NYX Bronze Smokey Look Kit Review and Swatches
Gather rather recessionista beauty junkies. Some of you may be saving your hard earned cash for a Summer holiday, or for the upcoming school year, or maybe some of you just can’t shell out out $30 or more on makeup.
Want a Summer palette that’s utterly affordable with some warm shades of color?
You NEED the NYX Bronze Smokey Look Kit.
An eye and lip palette filled with warm, Summer shades housed in a super slick compact for a mere $11 bucks!
Well…go on, count me impressed.
The NYX Bronze Smokey Look Kit is simply darling! I absolutely love this little palette and think it’s well worth a pick up this Summer particularly if you’re lemming hard on palettes from Urban Decay and the likes, as this is a mere $11 bucks! Money saved if you can’t afford to dish out for something more expensive.
Although it looks large the palette is actually a little bit bigger than a Givenchy blush. It’s a small square box with a flip up design and a hidden draw which houses the lip colors. Flip it open to reveal nine shades of bronzes, golds, and browns in various finishes of matte shimmer, and velvet. Pull out the stealthy little draw on the bottom to reveal a bronze lip color and a popping pink one plus two dual sided applicators one for lips and one for eyes.
The shadows are actually really awesome. They blend beautifully without creating a muddy mess with zero fall out and a smooth, velvety formula. Even the mattes in the palette are very easy to work with!
The shades are all touches of warm that can be used together in a contrasting eye look or separately for a dash of Sun on lids. The box has some easy to follow step by step instructions for contrasting if you’re at a lost but I think pretty much all the shades compliment each other so it’s easy enough to create a really simple, flattering look quickly!
I didn’t love the lip colors included. They just didn’t look so fabulous on me. Warmer shades of coral or peach would have complimented the shadows much better in my opinion.
- Anyone wanting more for less (nine shades of shadow, two lip colors, applicators, mirror, cute palette for $11 bucks dude!)
- Anyone who favors warm, Summer-y shades of bronze, gold, or brown.
- Anyone who’s sporting a tan (these shades will compliment it well)!
- Anyone who likes small, easy to travel palettes that can create an array of looks!
- Anyone who isn’t keen on smaller size palettes.
- Anyone who doesn’t work bronzes, golds, or browns well (no worries NYX has a shade for you! The Smokey Look Kits are available in a few shades including purple!)
If you’re traveling this Summer, this will make an ideal kit to take with you as it has plenty of product without causing a stir at the airport. It’s tiny and travels easily and offers a range of beautiful Summer colors. If you fall into the realms of beauty on a budget, this is an ideal little palette to fill your makeup sweet tooth without weighting downing your wallet. The shades all worth beautifully together and have a really great formula although I didn’t make proper use of the lip products, I still enjoyed the overall cuteness of the product. I loved the size and shades! The palette is ideal for Summer looks but will work well into the Fall for a warm look.
