It came in 2 days. NYX Goodies!!

Don't judge me!!! I know, I know... I don't need anymore makeup but this deal was too good to pass. I did a post a few days ago about NYX's end of the year bundle sale, and I did not hesitate to buy the 59 chrome eyeshadow and 22 glitter bundle. I was feeling an adrenaline rush when I placed the order as I put my debit card info. I didn't even hesitate to click on the order button, and next thing I knew it was over. The damage was done! I know Its sounds silly, but you have to understand, makeup makes me happy ^_^.

My package came in 2 days. It was super quick. NYX head quarters is not that far from where I live, so maybe that's why it came so fast.

59 Chrome eyeshadows

What are they? According to the NYX cosmetics website, these loose shadows provide an intense metallic effect with robust iridescent color that shines. The powder is soft and silky and offers a high pay off. A best seller at professional trade shows.(source: http://www.nyxcosmetics.com/)

How much are they? They retail for $5.00 each but I got them for $59.00 for the bundle which makes it $1.00 each.

How is the quality?  If you must know, these cubes are the old packaging. They are now in pigment jars. I hate the cube packaging! It gets kinda messy when you open the lid and plastic insert inside, so be very careful. On the other hand, the colors are soooo gorgeous and the color payoff is very good. Some are metallic as promised and some are more of sparkly with a lot of shimmers, which I love. Also, the texture is ultra fine andfeels silky against the skin.

What are they? Loose glitter packed in a cute case with a knock out punch! Perfect to apply to hair, face and body. Safe to use and none irritating. (source: http://www.nyxcosmetics.com/)

How much are they? They retail for $4.00 each but I got 22 glitters for $17.00

How is the quality? Just like the chrome eyeshadows, the packaging is terrible!!! I might have to transfer them into small jar containers. On the other hand, the colors are soo beautiful. I'm serious!!! The texture is fine and soft.

  12. I think I climaxed looking at that collection. I actually love owning all the colors of everything regardless if I use the color or not. I don't feel a collection is truly a collection unless I own every shade. When I do a haul, I save up the money and buy all of them at once. That way, I know I have the money and I don't go regretting not having all of them at once. Great haul, Becky! I can already tell it will be a pain in the ass to do swatches on all of those colors. I just realized that last night taking photos of some shadows. I was thinking "people better appreciate this because I only have so much skin to swatch this on." BTW, I saw DEBIT card instead of CREDIT card. Bless your wise soul. I don't think it's a terrible problem we makeup addicts have until we start swiping them credit cards. Having drawers full of makeup is one thing, but a maxed card is another. Yikes!!!

  15. Omg you got 'em for only a dollar each! That's awesome! Aww I so wish I live in the US right now.

    I have one of the chrome eyeshadows and boo it gets messy every time I want to use it. :(
    The color payoff of the shade I chose is also not too good. I got in Canary. But I've heard other shades got better pigmentation. Can't wait for your swatches! :)
