Swatches: NYX Blush and Eyeshadow Base

Aww, we have come to the end of my fabulous, at lease to me!, NYX haul. I am so, so happy to have been able to purchase these items. I love NYX now!

But I am sad as well. I have not purchased any makeup in about a month. My NYX order was placed last month on 5/25 and it arrived on 6/13. I promised myself that my NYX order would be the last makeup purchase for a long time. I am banning myself!

It's going to be hard, it has been hard, but oh well, too bad so sad. LOL. It's been fun buying a bunch of makeup but I will stop...for now! Now I'm going to depend on giveaways to get my new makeup fix!! LOL.

So, let me show you the last two NYX items I got. I just put these two random ones together since I only got one shade of each.
NYX Blush in PB17 Desert Rose
Net wt. 0.18 oz (5.2g) $6.00
NYX Eyeshadow Base ESB01 White
Net wt. 0.25 oz. (7g) $7.00

Wow! Look at that blush color!
Eyeshadow Base claims:
"For 100x more vivid color".

Swatches with flash.

Swatches without flash.
I should have done a swatch with the blush blended in. The color is so bold and potent! But, if you use a light, and I stress the word LIGHT hand, you can get a very pretty look. Considering how little product I used to get a desired flush of color, this blush will last a long time!

I loved it and I have used it several times since. I used this blush in my FOTD: I Dream of St. Lucia post.

I have also alternated my Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk with this Eyeshadow Base in White. I love the way they both work. I have seen that the eyeshadows show up more when you wear a white base underneath. Worth the money. Looks like a product I will keep repurchasing.

So, that's it, my Pretties. Last of my more hauls for a while...unless I win a giveaway...or my sister or my sweet-tart buy me a gift...or something... LOL.

Now it's time to focus more on FOTDs and maybe even my nails too. For a long LONG while, this blog solely became about hauls and that's not good. I want to share with you so much more than that. I will do my best to try and keep you all interested. I pinky promise.

Next up on the blog schedule: Awards! I have gotten like 5 of them in the last week and I have not posted about them so I'll try and get to those next.

Thank you all for joining me. I appreciate every single one of you that even glances at my blog. I can't believe I'm almost at 100 followers. That is amazing to me. Thank you all for sticking by me and spreading the word about my little blog here. Much, much love to all my Pretties.

Luv & Luk,

♥♥ All items mentioned in this post were bought by me with my own money. Items were purchased via NYX Cosmetics. ♥♥


  1. I have that blush and it's so pretty! I've always wanted to try the NYX base.

  2. Great swatches! :) I really want to try the eyeshadow base, please do a review when you get to use it more!

  3. that blush looks so pretty!

  4. @Hav BwB, yes, it is so pretty! The first time I used it, I dabbed my brush in and applied. I looked like a clown! Whoa, super pigmented! Now I've learned to just use a tiny bit of it :)

    @Vintage Makeup, thank you! From what I've tried so far, I like it. I will use it more often and take notes or something so I can do a review. I've never really done reviews before LOL. I'll do my best!

    @Ev, I think it's very pretty! Way to dark and too pink but when I wore it, I loved it :)

  5. I so want to try that base out. I heard it's like the Milk jumbo pencil in a jar. Haha! I agree no more hauls....I'll probably still buy stuff, but I'll show it in a collective haul once a month or something. Not a haul every week. lol. Great review. :)

  6. @frugalspender19, you know what, I think Milk JEP in a jar does do the base justice. LOL. That's how I would describe it right now too. I do intend on review this one since so many of you ladies would like to know more about it. I'll do my best to show you how well it works. I think monthly hauls would be great! I don't think I'm going to buy anything at so sad :)

  7. I really want to try that eyeshadow base. The tops on my jumbo pencils always crack.

    I've awarded you the Lovely Blog Award. Enjoy!

  8. @Destinee, I recommend the eyeshadow base. I've used it several times and I really like it. It works for me. You should try it. And thank you for the award!
