New Love for NYX Cosmetics

I'm a creature of habit and usually wear MAC eyeshadow then I came across NYX.  I purchased two colors (Wild Orchard and Ultra Violet) for the first time from the Hot Singles Eye Shadow collection.  Wild Orchard is a bright fuchsia eyeshadow and reminds me of the colors magenta and pink from the TV series Jem and the Holograms.  Whereas, Ultra Violet is a matte, dark, and very bold purple.  I love these because they are highly pigmented and super affordable.  The Hot Singles have a round packaging similar to MAC with a cute little bow on the lid.  They are also similar to MAC in size, so I'm sure they would fit into a palette.

When applying the shadow to my lid, I immediately noticed that the shadow goes on super smooth and the color payoff is amazing!  The color is buildable, and long wearing.  I decided to create a colorful smokey eye, using Wild Orchard as a transition shade right above the crease.  I packed Ultra Violet on the lid and slowly blended the color into the crease.  I hope you guys like the look I created below.

I was really impressed with the Hot Singles Collection.  I highly recommend NYX eyeshadows to anyone who wants high quality eye shadow without the steep price tag.  For the price of $4.50 each, your can't go wrong!  I'll be purchasing a few more colors from this collection, so check back for more posts!
