The neutrals in the NYX Book of Eye Shadows is thrilling me.


About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Hi Muse! I bought this a few days ago from a local seller here in the Philippines. It arrived today. This picture, I think, does not justify the beauty of the item in person. I was so happy when I got mine! The eyeshadows are pigmented and, I believe, are a great bargain for the price. So I decided to wear this for my hospital shift for 8 hours… Thing is, I didn’t have a decent eye primer. My NYX HD Eye Shadow Base is still on the way to me from there in the US so… I decided to use my NYX Concealer in a Jar in Beige as an eye primer.

    Surprise, surprise… I arrived home just now and the color did not fade. I don’t know if I could say the same thing had I done a dramatic look or anything as I just applied a brown-gold shade at my lower lid. It’s almost unnoticeable and still neutral even though it has shimmer in it and… I cannot express how happy I am with this palette. I also got more intensified colors by wetting my brush with water.

    I really really love this palette because it organized colors for me already. The bold, vibrant shades are at the bottom sliding tray and the neutral colors I can use for work or daytime or just a natural casual look are there when I open it.

    I <3 this. I believe I've already found my HG Brand. It's NYX.
