Last week, I attended NYX Cosmetics' store opening at Queens Center Mall in Elmhurst, Queens. I was able to check out NYX's new stand alone store and play around with the products. I had been asked by their PR company to submit a list of items that caught my eye at the launch event. With that said, I received a generous package from NYX.
It was quite hard to really get to look at everything in the store because it was sensory overload but when I saw these, I knew I had to include them in my wish list. These are the newly launched NYX Lid Lingerie. NYX came out with their Lip Lingerie some time ago and they were a big hit with makeup geeks and now, they have these. They looked so pretty in the store and I couldn't stop staring at them. I ended up swatching a shade on my hand and fell in love instantly! Although, on the product tube itself, it has the words "eye tint" written on it, make no mistake, a little goes a long way! These are highly saturated and the colors are absolutely gorgeous!
I've only had them for a couple of days and I've used Rose Pearl and Whimsy so far. I've been using Rose Pearl on my lids and today I have Whimsy on my crease. They are beautiful on the eyes. They have a creamy texture and they blend well. When the product sets, it doesn't move. It doesn't crease at all (I apply a primer prior to applying the eyeshadows) and lasts a long time. I've worn it to work and I've come home with my eye makeup still intact (and it's been sweltering here in NYC!). I am most likely going to get more colors because I love them so much!
By the way, I've been hearing some folks saying that they use the NYX Lid Lingerie on their lips! I tried using Whimsy as lipstick and it didn't quite work out for me. The color isn't as pigmented on my lips and when I swiped the product on my lips, the color moved around. But, if you successfully do this, let me know (tag me on Instagram @eatdressgo) and tell me how it works out.
