NYX Cosmetics Love in Paris Eye Shadow Palettes - Photos, Swatches, and Review

March 6, 2013

Today I have a review on two of the NYX Cosmetics Love in Paris Eye Shadow palettes. There are 12 palettes available that each have 9 eye shadow colors. The two I will be reviewing today are called Madeleines And Macaroons (on the left) and C'est La Vie. See more photos and swatches below!

NYX Cosmetics Madeleines And Macaroons Love in Paris Eye Shadow Palette
This one was pretty in the palette but the pigmentation was not really there. Three shadows were good and the others were not great. When applying them on the eyes, I had to use a lot of the eye shadow and a few were still chalky and color payoff was poor. I will still use a few of the shades, but the palette as a whole is a miss. You can skip this one.

NYX Cosmetics C'est La Vie Love in Paris Eye Shadow Palette
In this palette, all of the eye shadows have shimmer in them. Definitely better pigmentation in these shadows than the other palette. Getting the color to show was not difficult and they were easy to work with. I really love the colors in this palette, especially the green, blue and rust colors.

With these kind of palettes, there is going to be some that are good and some that are not that great. I ended up buying one of each so I'm not that disappointed. C'est La Vie palette makes up for what Madeleines And Macaroons lacks.

NYX Cosmetics Love in Paris Eye Shadow Palettes retail for $10 each and can be found on the NYX website.

Hope these swatches were helpful! Let me know what you think!
