Mini NYX Eyeshadow Haul :)

4/8/11

Hey Beauties,
A few days ago I went to my handy little "Uniprix" Pharmacy and picked up a couple NYX eyeshadows. My very first NYX shadows-so exciting!! Unfortunately Uniprix doesn't carry the whole NYX line so they only have nailpolishes, some lipgloss and some eyeshadows :( Do any of you ladies from Montreal know where I can find more NYX stuff here?? Would be much appreciated!
I ended up buying 11 Iced Mocha and 112 Fahrenheit.

Here are some swatches :)

The texture of Iced Mocha feels so finely milled whereas Fahrenheit is a little more rough to the touch. Unlike Iced Mocha, Fahrenheit also contains some gold-toned sparkles which add to the roughness. I find iced mocha to be a taupe with a bit of a gold undertone and fahrenheit is like a very rusted antiqued rose with containing (cool) gold undertones as well (I know cool gold undertones doesn't make much sense, but the undertone isn't quite silver either...). I'm going to do a look with these two-I figured out when they're slightly blended it gives a beautiful taupey-rose! 

My friend came over later that night and brought me Juliette et Chocolat goodness. If you live in Montreal and have never tried it before I HIGHLY recommend going!! I got a delicious brownie with their special salty signature caramel to dip it in :)


What do you ladies think of these shadows? What are you favourite NYX eyeshadows? I'd love some recommendations for further purchases.
