NYX Holiday Set Review, Photos and Swatches
I picked up this set at Target for $9.99.
After posting about the NYX Holiday sets recently I’ve been getting loads of questions and comments regarding the set that I picked up so I figured it was about time for a review hehe.
Sorry for making you wait 🙂
As I’ve mentioned numerous times before I love NYX products.
In fact they’re one of my favorite drugstore makeup lines.
Having said that though I wasn’t thrilled with this set *insert sad face here*.
I’ll explain more later, but first lets look at what comes in the set.
1. A black pencil liner
2. A brown pencil liner
3. The NYX Paris in Love shadow palette in Madeleines and Macaroons
4.Mascara in Faux Lashes
How pretty is the shadow palette?
I love the case with the little bow and I love the colors of the shadows so what don’t I love about it?
Sorry for the bad photo, but I hope it shows you what I’m talking about.
This is 2 swipes of the shadow and as you can see the darker shades showed up decently, but the lighter ones barely show up at all.
I don’t know if they’ve just changed their formula or if it’s because it’s a holiday palette, but it’s just not up NYX standards in my opinion.
When I think of NYX shadows I think of creamy/buttery shades and this palette just doesn’t measure up in my opinion.
So what about the other products?
The liners are ok, but I prefer liners like Urban Decay’s 24/7 pencils which are as smooth as silk while these are more on the hard side.
I don’t really have an opinion on the mascara yet as I haven’t worn it, but I hear it’s an ok mascara.
So is this set a buy or a pass?
I’d say pass….unless you’re new to makeup or on a very tight budget then this set may make sense for you since it’s a such a great deal.
But if you’re someone who’s obsessed with makeup or looking for a great set of products I think you’d probably be disappointed.
Oh and to all my NYX fans out there the next NYX review I have coming up in the next few weeks is a good one I promise haha.
Have you tried any of these products?
What’s your favorite NYX product?
