During the winter, NYX launched the multipallet Love Contours All Palette (adlink) which contains 9 eye shadows, two highlighters, two contour shadows and two eyebrow shadows. Got it in a goodie bag at an event with NYX in the snow chaos in Sthlm, if you saw mine vlog from the? :)
I have tested it and now thought to show you swatch pictures in all the colors :)
The palette also has a large mirror on the inside, which is a big plus if you take it with you on the trip! It is nice black and glossy and really nice to have next to the makeup mirror. It is also easy to open and close.
SEK 269 and is available at Eleven.se and Lyko.se, among others.
Here you see an overview of all the colors. Fina va? :)
The dark contouring shade is in my opinion a bit too warm, but above all incredibly rich in pigment so you have to be very careful to get a soft contouring. Use a fluffy and soft brush and remove excess shadow from the brush before applying, you will get an incredibly effective result. For those of you who prefer mild contouring, I can recommend this shade as an eye shadow instead :)
The highlighter next to this shadow is just like the contouring incredibly effective and gives super much glow! Super nice for cheekbones and eyes when you want a lot of luster. Nothing for those who prefer luster that looks more natural, but then it is very nice to the eyes as well.
The second contour shade is much lighter and milder, and more to my taste in terms of tone even when it is colder. Fits my very light skin and is a perfect everyday contouring shade. If I were to use the darker color, I would still first primer with this light, and then apply the dark where I want more effect. Then it is much easier to get even than to put the super dark directly on my light skin.
This highlighter is light golden and wow how nice I say! It looks so good on the skin!
You can all see the eye shadows above. I have not tested them so much for make-up yet, so can not determine how easy they are to fade out and the like, but the first impression like this is that they are very pigment-rich and creamy. And very nice colors right? :)
The eyebrow shadows are very nice too, the brown is maybe a bit reddish brown instead of cold brown (which I prefer) but together with the taupe colored they are very nice together. I like to apply a little lighter towards the nose and then darker at the outer edges of the eyebrows.
In summary, I think it is an incredibly good palette that for so many shades is incredibly affordable also for only SEK 269 at Eleven.se (adlink).
Hope you all get a great start to the new week ♥
