New NYX Love in Paris Palettes

Hello Lovely Ladies,

It is about to get NYX crazy on this blog!  I recently purchased a deal from Total Beauty Shops that allowed me to buy $60 worth of NYX products for only $30.  Happy dance!

I purchased A LOT of stuff, so there will be many NYX posts coming up in the next few weeks.  For now, I am going to review the new 9 color eye shadow palettes, known as the Love in Paris collection.

NYX Merci Beaucoup

NYX C'est La Vie
First of all, the whole collection is incredibly cute.  NYX has three different sets of palettes. Love in Rio - three shadow palettes, Love in Florence - five shadow palettes, and Love in Paris - nine shadow palettes.  NYX asks, "Where will you find love?"  For me, it was Rio and Paris, but the Florence palettes are pretty cute too.

The Love in Paris palettes retail for $9.99 at Ulta, but you can often find them BOGO or at a discount on Cherry Culture.  I have also heard that some Targets have started carrying NYX!

The packaging is sleek and closes with a cute little bow.  It reminds me of the MAC Holiday 2012 packaging.

They also have adorable names!  Unfortunately, this is where my raving about these palettes ends.  The actual product did not live up to my expectations.  NYX is one of my favorite drugstore brands, and I have been impressed with some of their shadows in the past.  Unfortunately, I found these chalky and not pigmented.
Merci Beaucoup
C'est La Vie
One major perk with these palettes is the combination of shimmery and matte (or at least much less shimmery) shades.  C'est La Vie is largely shimmer shadows, but Merci Beaucoup has four matte shades, including a great highlight color.  The pigmentation isn't great, but there are standout shades in each palette.  I really like the second and last shades in the Merci Beaucoup palette, and C'est La Vie offers some nice browns.  I was a bit disappointed that the greens in this palette did not perform better.

Using Only Merci Beaucoup Shadows
Overall, these palettes are okay.  They have great packing and a good price point.  For me, that doesn't make up for the mediocre product.  If you want to try these out, I recommend starting off with one palette and seeing how the formula works for you.

Have you tried these new shadows from NYX?  What are you thoughts?

Also, I have a FOTD coming up using the Love Affair with Louis palette!
