I was passing a fragrance outlet store when something caught my eye. They had a table displayed with makeup in the window. I could of sworn the nail polish bottles were NYX. Granted, this was before I had ever seen NYX products in person and I had just placed my first ever NYX order online just days before.
My sister asked if I wanted to go see and I said yes, of course. And it was NYX. They were having a huge sale on NYX. The sales woman could see my excitement and brought over a little basket for all the goodies I was grabbing. I ended up with 3 nail polishes, 3 lip glosses, 2 lipsticks, and 2 eyeshadow singles. I believe the sale was 5 for $9.99. (I forgot to do a haul post on these. I'll try and get around to that soon.)
When I was heading to the register to pay, the sales woman told me that she had some eyeshadows in the back for $1.00 and told me to wait. So I did.
She came out with 3 different palettes. One held NYX eyeshadow singles, one held NYX eyeshadow trios, and the other one held NYX blushes. I'm an eyeshadow person so I was studying the single shadows looking at which ones I wanted. Then she proceeds to tell me that the whole palette was $1.00! What the what??
The palettes she brought out were the ones they put on display and because the store was no longer going to carry NYX (hence the great sale) they were getting rid of the testers as well. I was really excited. So, of course, I bought them all. Even if they were testers, I'd clean them up!
OK, now I'm finally getting to the point of this post. I needed to clean up the palettes and the pans were no longer sticking to the palette anymore. I want to get a Z Palette or something like that but for now, I'll have to keep them the way they came. This is just a quick fix.
|Items I need to do this project.|
NYX Eyeshadow Singles: $1.00
NYX Blushes: $3.00
Alcohol (not pictured)
Felt (not pictured)
Wet rag (not pictured)
|NYX Blusher Tester for $3.00|
|Turn palette over upside down with the lid still on.|
|Remove the black plastic palette.|
|All dirty. I am very anal with my makeup.|
It has to be clean!
|Clean the palette with a wet rag.|
|I cleaned the backs of the pans too.|
Be careful not to mix up the pans because they are in order.
|Get some alcohol and a piece of felt.|
|Wipe down the backs of the pans and the palette.|
|Add a piece of double-sided tape.|
|Remove the backing.|
|Stick back on to the palette.|
|Now I used the Sharpie to write the names on the labels.|
Each blush had a number underneath it so I looked up
the names online using these numbers.
|I stuck the labels to the back of the palette.|
|Repeat the process for the eyeshadow trios...|
|...and the eyeshadow singles.|
While each palette had the number stuck on to a corresponding eyeshadow/blush, I don't know if they are all correct. I compared them to the ones online and some are wrong for a fact! And some I just couldn't find anything that resembled it. So...yeah....
I'm going to need help from all of you that are more familiar with NYX because I certainly am not. I will do a future post enlarging the eyeshadows and blushes so that you can tell me if they are correct or not.
Will you help me, please?
Luv & Luk,
