NYX Lid Lingerie

A few weeks ago I was sent one of the relatively new to the market NYX Lid Lingerie cream eyeshadows. I was sent the shade Morning Sky, it was one of the pieces they were highlighting as part of their St Patrick’s Day celebrations.

I’m not going to lie, I was a bit tentative about using this product at first because at 37 years old I am quite afraid of cream eye shadows especially teal ones!! I decided that I wanted to base an entire makeup look around just this one product, but making sure that it was the star of the show.

You can clearly see the Metallic finish here

I used it in conjunction with a beautiful jewel colour palette that I have from Sleek Makeup called Arabian Nights because I thought it suited it perfectly. I applied the NYX eye shadow using the wand that comes with it, little by little and then blended it in to the lid using a fluffy blender brush. I found the eye shadow blended beautifully, it was so soft and didn’t go a bit dry on the lid which I think was my biggest fear with it.
As I thought the Sleek palette matched it beautifully, accentuating the stunning teal colour of this shade. It has a bit of a metallic finish to it which you will see from the photos but again that wasn’t an issue on my eye, it didn’t look garish or over the top and I was complemented continuously yesterday about my makeup so that’s always good!!

So happy with the finished result

The best part of all for me though was that the eye shadow was still 100% in tact when I was going to take it off last night, there wasn’t even a sign of a crease in it and personally I find that absolutely incredible. They come in a variety of shades too just in case green really isn’t your thing and you can find them on here on Boots.ie priced at €9.00 each.
