Everyday Look & A Review on the NYX Champagne & Caviar Palette

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another look!  I actually wore this for a bridal trial.  It's a great everyday look that has just enough definition to make you look fresh and polished.  I used NYX's Champagne and Caviar Palette which I picked up during a sale at Ulta.  I think I got it for 40% off, putting it at around $5, not bad at all!  In case you haven't noticed I'm really into neutrals lately.  This palette contains colors awesome for getting an everyday look or smokey night time look.  Check out what I think of the palette and the look I created!

The palette swatches really nicely...the colors are pigmented and smooth.  The shadows are a little on the cool toned side.  I prefer warm toned but they still look nice. Here are some swatches, photo credit to princesslisax3.blogspot.com
Here's my look!  I kept it clean and added some lashes to keep my eyes bright.  A berry pink on the cheeks and lips finished off the look.  When I have appointments with clients, I always try to have at least some makeup on.  It makes me look more professional and you are a walking advertisement of your services.

After a few hours I noticed that my eyeshadow was starting to fade. I used my Steelo Eyeshadow base like I always do. This isn't the first time I've worn these shadows and noticed that the staying power wasn't all that great. The same thing goes for the Smokey Eye Palette. I feel like the shadows are a little bit powdery like the mass palettes you see on ebay. You might have to wear a stronger colored base with these. Hope this was helpful to some of you!

Pretty, I am so drawn to the colors in that palette. Although I do have the smoky one and I agree about the staying power.

I quite like this palette actually however you are right about the stain power. They stay on longer when I use my Two Faced shadow insurance.

I'm with you on the staying power issue with this one! It's really pretty neutrals, but you have to touch up if you have a long day.

This is such a pretty neutrals palette. I remember when NYX came up with these a while ago. It looks like some of the colors are more pigmented than others. Does using primers make those colors stand out more? Thanks!
