playing w/ my new NYX palette

my first NYX palette. $9.99 @ cheap accessory stores @ the mall. the ORANGE is brilliant -- super pigmented. the other colors are OK.

here are some pix:

ok i really need to get a better camera. i'm still using my macbook webcam. the colors get a bit muted, so in person, the colors pop a bit more. you can't tell in these pics, but i'm wearing a lot of PINK on my cheeks.

eyes: NYX pencil shadow - white (used as base); k-palette 1-day tattoo - black; NYX eyeshadows pink, yellow, blue, orange from the "Caribbean Collection" palette; MUFE aqua eyes - black

my new HG liner: Milani Liquif'Eye

goes on like BUTTTTTTTA. put it on, let it set for 7 seconds. it will stay on all day!

one minor annoyance... depending on the batch you get, some liners might be extra soft. my black one goes on fine but my brown one is breaking apart when i apply. boo~ either way, this liner gets 5 stars from me.

thnx Lillian for sharing your discovery!

i promise

to make a video before summer ends! =X
