NYX Parallel Worlds Makeup Collection Inspired by The Mortal Instruments

NYX Parallel Worlds Makeup Collection Inspired by The Mortal Instruments

To celebrate the release of The Mortal Instruments City of Bones, NYX has created the Parallel Worlds Box a selection of products inspired by the The Mortal Instruments. The NYX Cosmetics Parallel Worlds Box is filled with six full size NYX products for $24.99.

Seriously, Jamie Campbell Bower and Jonathan Rhys Meyers in a movie? Together? My heart be still! I really adore the novels so I’m quite excited to see this, let’s just hope it isn’t as bad as Beautiful Creatures, cringe!

But…the story for now is NYX Cosmetics Parallel Worlds Box.

Take a peek!

NYX Parallel Worlds Box promises a dark, mysterious, dangerous (and possibly cute guy overload) of products inspired by The Mortal Instruments and Clary’s look.

You get:

  • NYX Smoky Palette
  • NYX Blush
  • NYX Matte Lip Cream
  • NYX Black Liquid Liner
  • NYX Jumbo Pencil
  • NYX Volumizing Mascara

I believe JRM is sold separately…sorry ladies (and lads).

Speaking of which he’s been picked up for a series here in the US, Dracula. Um it kinda excites me to think of JRM in a vampire role…nothing can top Velvet Goldmine but I can get on board with a little Dracula come the Fall.

Enough perving for today!

This set is available now at Ulta.com and sure to follow at Ulta locations I’m sure.


Share ’em here!

  • 5/24/13 11:08 Littlecreek:

    Nice little set, I think it will do nicely as a mommy present. :) I’m assuming the movie is based on a book (seems like everything is anymore) have you or anyone else reason this read it? Thoughts?


    • 5/24/13 11:30 the Muse:

      movie is indeed based on the book :) it’s actually a series of books, quite good YA reading! 😀


  • 5/24/13 11:48 Michelle:

    You enabler you! :) You’ve dangled the proverbial carrot in front of my eyes, and I must Watch Velvet Goldmine now! (Although it has been sitting in my Netflix cue for ages and I just haven’t gotten around to seeing it yet.)


    • 5/24/13 11:52 the Muse:

      omg you never watched it? shut the hell up and get off my comment box and go watch it ;-D hehe! JRM is such a sexy beast!


  • 5/24/13 11:54 Misato-san:

    • 5/24/13 12:08 the Muse:

      • 5/24/13 12:09 the Muse:

  • 5/24/13 12:13 Emma:

    Oh this is so cool!! I love those books, and I was also super excited the JRM was Valentine. He’s going to be awesome. 😀


    • 5/24/13 12:13 the Muse:

      i sure hope so ;D


  • 5/24/13 12:19 Misato-san:

    I’ve got them on my own blog!
    The first one was for a collaboration I’ve got with some friends and beauty bloggers (it’s a series, we do a themed make up every month), we had to do something about a movie we love… so I choose Velvet (Brian look ^^)

    I did also a Maxwell Demone tribute here:

    Next step: a Mandy look. Because she’s my favourite character ^^


    • 5/24/13 12:23 the Muse:

      SO FUN! ;-D love it! :-D!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  • 5/24/13 12:27 Misato-san:

    thank you <3


    • 5/24/13 12:30 the Muse:

      i wish I could pull off the blue ;-D


  • 5/24/13 13:17 TrippyPixie:

    Trying to resist the urge to buy. This collection better be as fabulous as Magnus Bane!

    I really hope that the movie turns out well, since I loved the book series.


  • 5/24/13 14:12 Icequeen81:



  • 5/24/13 14:18 Misato-san:

    blue is one of my best friends when comes to colours… I recently did a blue smokey with an Inglot eyeshadow and MAC’s Prussian that was pure love…


    • 5/24/13 14:28 the Muse:

      i wish I can say the same, I looked bad with blue lately :( my eyes are aging now and blue isn’t my BFF :(


  • 5/24/13 15:05 Miss D:

    For Misato-san: Oh great idea to do makeup from Velvet Goldmine! You are all sorts of crazy cool! :)

    For Muse: My favorite parts in the movie are ALL scenes that include that wonderful Jack Fairy character (Micko Westmoreland)…OMG. He got me at the very first scene in the movie- yes, I’d like a super-sized order of that, please! XD


    • 5/24/13 15:07 the Muse:

      Micko Westmoreland is incredible period ;-D he’s an outstanding composer and has done some great indie film work.


  • 5/24/13 15:49 charlotte:

    Kind of disappointing that it is just a collection of regular product vs. a nice collectors palette like they did for Dark Shadows. The smokey palette is not very good quality. Bummer.


  • 5/24/13 17:03 Miss D:

    Say what?! He composes? Gotta look him up- thanks and have a great weekend and Memorial Day! Hugs!


    • 6/10/13 16:22 the Muse:

      he does indeed 😀 you too hun sorry delayed reply but hope yours was lovely 😀 hugs!


  • 5/24/13 17:45 Clio:

    I believe that you are trying to be inclusive when you direct many of your comments towards both women and men, but your frequent choice to put the male audience in parentheses destroys any illusion of inclusiveness you were trying to build in the first place, as you did with the example, “I believe JRM is sold separately…sorry ladies (and lads).” Why the parentheses? If you are sincere in your acknowledgement that many men desire Jonathan Rhys Meyers as well as women, you wouldn’t put them in parentheses, as doing so perpetuates the notion that for men to desire men (or to wear makeup, as is often the case when you write this way) is abnormal. It suggests that you think you’re doing men some sort of favor by including them, but you won’t go so far as to give them as much respect and attention as the women you obviously think your blog caters to.

    Pick one or the other, Muse — be inclusive or don’t be. Straddling the line in between is just sad.

    You don’t have to approve this comment if it offends or embarrasses you, but I really hope you read it and take it to heart.


    • 5/24/13 23:34 the Muse:

      actually i just think you read too much into the parentheses….if I somehow insulted you I apologize lord knows that isn’t my intention at all. just take parentheses with a grain of salt they don’t mean what you seem to think they mean…I’m in the middle, I think men wearing makeup is abnormal, etc…etc…how you got all that from parentheses boggles my mind but props for taking something simple and making it into something super dramatic. relax, it’s only makeup, I swear the parentheses do not have any hidden meaning aside from I plan to take over the world….shoot…I gave my master plans away…try to forget that last part, it’s top secret. or at least don’t share it with anyone else, that’s between you and I. shhh…! try to have a good weekend and don’t stress over parentheses. apologies for any spelling errors i made, typing on iphone, and if there are any, they don’t MEAN what you think they mean 😀


  • 5/24/13 17:48 Jess:

    I actually thought the Beautiful Creatures movie was better than the books lol But this set looks amazing!

    And JRM…mmm…yes. This and Dracula.


    • 6/11/13 16:34 the Muse:

      REALLY? not me ;-D I liked the books! JRM as dracula makes me drool!


  • 5/24/13 23:46 Cj:

    Damn girl calm down. I have no idea how you got all that from parenthesis… I feel as if I need you to do my taxes or something. Shit.


    • 5/24/13 23:54 the Muse:

      lol cj you’re a guy, do you feel excluded somehow? curious minds because I simply adore you and would feel terrible if I somehow hurt you by throwing around parentheses all willy nilly…i’m going to start dubbing you “hubby” and “boy who wears makeup” “cutie twink” hell I’m going to start dubbing Jai “gay BFF” but knowing Jai he’d want an exclamation mark with the parentheses after his title. Clio, you could be onto something here :) i’m just joking around…seriously, it’s late, I’m in a cab headed downtown and your comment kinda made me go “WHaaa?!” so I had to reply.


    • 5/24/13 23:57 the Muse:

      ps wish you were here….! :( long weekend=no cj to have fun with. get your ass to new york mister!


      • 5/24/13 23:57 the Muse:

        and out on your best lipgloss ;D


        • 5/24/13 23:58 the Muse:

          quote…unqoute…damn that one glass of wine with dinner and I’m all kinds of crazy ;-D


  • 5/25/13 0:00 Cj:

    Muse – no not at all your a darling! I seriously have no idea how she came up to that conclusion from parenthesis… I guess some people just look for drama lol. My comment was directed at Clio, I still can’t reply for some stupid reason >.> Now what the heck are you doing out so late?? You better not be clubbing without me! Your “cute twink hubby” lmao I love you!


    • 5/25/13 0:10 the Muse:

      i swear no clubbing without you, ever so slightly tipsy…just getting back from a friend’s bday now headed to see the hangover III at the loews on 34th with some friends, why did I agree to see the hangover? groan. it was good drama though ;-D It seriously never crossed my mind that my parentheses were someone excluding a group of people, I think I just use them because I don’t have a ton of guys reading the site..!? who the hell knows why I use them but it def isn’t because I find men in makeup abnormal, lord knows men wear makeup and apply it better than I do! 😀 hehe….you’re MY cute little twink. love you too have lots of fun this weekend. i talk to you tuesday <3! don’t kiss any guys that I wouldn’t and mark your calender off for the return of teen wolf, we’ll drool over Colton and Dylan together ah screw it you can have colton I’m cool with dylan all my own.


      • 5/25/13 0:12 the Muse:

        oh ps it’s the permalink structure in my yoast plugin that’s prob causing your problem with direct replies…sorry about that. such drama with the website lately…woe is me. trying to fix it.


  • 5/25/13 0:18 Cj:

    Oh good I was this close to banding my ipad with a hammer lmao. Nu uh I want my share of Dylan!! 😛 omg I forgot its a 3day weekend, I don’t know how I’m gonna handle 3 whole days without you :( Have fun at the movies!


    • 6/10/13 16:17 the Muse:

      we don’t have a choice now since Colton is gone and the double mint twins replaced him lol! 😀 did you see the internship? dylan+dorky glasses=LOVE


  • 5/25/13 0:19 Cj:

    Banding? FFS banging* and now I’m thinking of doing it again -.- stupid autocorrect


  • 5/25/13 3:08 Danii:

    I do believe the Lip Cream is Tokyo; looks like Tokyo from the color of the tube. Could be one of the other pinky colors so I’ll pass. Already have the Jumbo Pencil is 612A Pure Gold and I’m iffy on the Smoky palette (I’ll snag it when there’s another BOGO on NYX at Ulta).


  • 5/25/13 3:21 Littlecreek:

    It is 2 a.m. and after reading about parenthesis I have “Conjunction Junction” stuck in my head. Ah School House Rock.

    CJ, your reply was as hilarious as I thought it would be. This sleep deprived mama needed that giggle.

    Muse, an entire glass of wine my dear?! I will have to start calling you a lush if you aren’t careful. :p


    • 6/10/13 16:14 the Muse:

      what’s your functionnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn! lol jeepers that’s vintage. I was a little tipsy when I replied here and had to re-read what was happening lol..a glass of wine and a half and I’m out, I’m a complete lightweight with liquor of any kind ;-D give me two glasses and I’ll likely take my clothes off and run around!


  • 5/25/13 3:48 Littlecreek:

    And to anyone thinking “Parenthesis aren’t conjunctions.” I say to you…2am…newborn. I’m just excited it could put together that both parenthesis and conjunctions are things I learned about in English class. :)


  • 5/25/13 10:51 Misato-san:

    @ Michelle
    go watch Velvet Goldmine NOW, it’s amazing!
    And not only for JRM… there is also an awesome Ewan McGregor in it <3
    (I'm biased, that Scottish guy is my main man from ages XD)

    @ Miss D
    thank you… to me make up is about having fun so trying a look like that one was a pleasure! Plus I wanted to try blue lips on me from ages XD
    (I have also a Bowie's Starman inspired look on the blog with teal lips because I had to celebrate its anniversary last year! XD
    Thin White Duke = LOVE)

    @ Muse
    I'm not that young sadly but I can pull of sort of cold colours, I love them and they love me in return ^^
    Hope you'll be able to fix the reply problem soon ^^


    • 6/11/13 16:33 the Muse:

      hey misato sorry delayed reply 😀 you look young to me misses ;-D and the comment is finally fixed FEW!


      • 6/11/13 17:01 Misato-san:

        oh finally it’s fixed! XD

        aside from this wonderful thing… I’m curious to know how old I seem to you, I admit XD


        • 6/12/13 10:08 the Muse:

          25 Misato? and yes thank god was driving me BONKERS sorry about that ;D


          • 6/12/13 19:41 Misato-san:

            older, older, sadly.
            (+ 7… in August)

          • 6/13/13 9:39 the Muse:

            ahhh it’s only a number 😀

  • 5/25/13 20:17 Alishia:

    I can’t tell – but are all of these products sold separately? I’m really interested in the blush – but I can’t tell which one it is. It kinda looks like pinched.


    • 6/10/13 16:11 the Muse:

      probably but I don’t know the exact shade names hun!


  • 6/4/13 13:28 Tanja:


    I got a little question. Is there a way to get the Make-up-collection if you don´t live in the USA? We got no Ulta shops here.

    Lg Tanja


    • 6/4/13 13:30 the Muse:

      depends where you live tanja….there are a variety of shops like cherryculture and nyx directly who might ship to your location or ebay.


  • 6/4/13 13:37 Tanja:

    In Europe (or exactly Germany)^^
    I can´t find it on the pages of the nyx and cherryculture shops. (Maybe it´s not here, but i don´t think so)


    • 6/4/13 13:46 the Muse:

      your best bet is makeup forums for a swap or ebay as I’m unsure how ships NYX to europe :(


  • 6/4/13 13:55 Tanja:

    Okay, thank you,^^ i can´t find it on the german page, maybe they sell it not in germany.


  • 6/19/14 15:08 Rachel:

    have they stopped selling/making these boxes?
    I’ve been looking for this box, and everything has said that it’s sold out.
