NYX Cosmetics Love In Paris 'C'est La Vie' & Love In Florence 'Eat, Love, Be Fab' Eye Shadow Palettes ♥

 NYX Cosmetics launched in Ireland earlier in the year and I've been lucky enough to try out some of their products. I've been super impressed with everything I've tried so far, notably with 'The Curve' eyeliner which is so easy to use and this is coming from someone who always smudges her eyeliner when applying it! Today I have a review of two of their gorgeous looking eye shadow palettes, the Love In Paris C'est La Vie palette and the Love In Florence 'Eat, Love, Be Fab' palette.

  Both of these palettes are quite compact and come in plastic black casing with a pretty little bow shaped clasp on them, this really added to the girly names on the palettes I think, it's always nice to have something pretty in your makeup bag.

I'll begin with the Love In Paris 'C'est La Vie' palette*. This is a nine shadow palette filled with gorgeous shimmer shades in a range of light and dark colours. The shadows all have great pigmentation and although the lightest shade is really too light to use as a shadow on it's own it acts as a great base and blending shade with the other, darker colours. My favourite shade in this palette is the moss green shade as it's really wearable even with the shimmer in it. I think the rust and navy blue shade will be nice for the festive season and the shimmer in all the shadows is perfect for this time of year. There are actually ten versions of the Love In Paris palette all with different colours and a mixture of matte and shimmer shades. You can find the full range here. The Love In Paris palette is €11.49.

 The Love In Florence 'Eat, Love, Be Fab' palette* is my favourite out of the two NYX eye shadow palettes I have, the colours are just right up my street and perfect for everyday use. This is a five shadow palette with a mix of three light and two darker shades. The shadows in this palette are again highly pigmented, even more so than the Love In Paris 'C'est La Vie' palette in my opinion. All of the shadows in this palette are shimmer shades too, although the medium brown shade has a semi-matte finish. My favourite shades are the gorgeous coral shade and the medium green shade (can you tell that I have a thing for green eye shadows?!). The Love In Florence palette is also available in ten versions, you can take a look at all the shades here. The Love In Florence palette is €9.99.

Once again I have been left impressed with the quality of NYX Cosmetics products, the colour range is great and the mix of shades in each palette really compliment each other. These palettes are small enough to put in my everyday makeup bag too unlike other, larger eye shadow palettes I own (you can guess which ones!) which is something I like. NYX Cosmetics products are cruelty free too which gets a huge thumbs up from me! The palettes are quite reasonably priced for the range of colours you get in them. 

I've found both palettes and other products from the NYX Cosmetics range available to buy online here in Ireland.

Which is your favourite out of the two palettes?

  8. I really need to get one of these palettes! I have a tendency to use my one little eyeshadow kit over and over again--these would give me the chance to mix things up a bit. My favorite is the Love in Paris!

  12. The green shade is my favourite. I think my daughter would go insane if she found that in her Christmas stocking this year. I would too for that matter.

  13. As I have no idea how my girlfriend gets a dolled up with her mysterious bathroom mirror ways, I guess I'll just have to get both pallets and see what happens. =D

  20. The Love in Florence is beautiful! They both are, but I can't help but be captivated by those colors!!! I love playing and swatching makeup so much!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Love love the love in florence, its utterly gorgeous. The love in paris isn't too bad but I especially like the swatches gives an idea of how they apply

    ReplyDelete
  22. I am one of those people who gravitate to the details of product packaging. I love that lil' black bow on the side - it's very cute. I like the 'Love in Florence' palette the best...mostly because I really like that blue-green shade. I used to enjoy wearing light blues and greens on the eyes when I dressed up.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Ooooo those gold shades look pretty fabulous!!! I'm all about gold tones this time of year ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  24. I am wearing and using makeup more so this is something that I have to look into. I am not really into loud/bright colors so it would be a perfect match. I also love how both have quite a few options that can be mixed and matched together.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh I love the colors of the palette. They're so feminine and pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  26. NYX is one of my all time favorite makeup brands. Now I must get my hands on these!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm not one to wear a lot of make up especially since my son has been born, but I have to say that I'm a sucker for these colors! And it makes me want to go out and get a little 'dressed' up. I love the nudes with the brighter shades.

  28. i've never use NYX but here in the US a lot of people love this brand. I love the Love In Paris. The colors are perfect for my skin tone.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Love the different color shades. I am a brown and gold tone type of gal. I've tried other colors and nothing goes well with my brown eyes. .

  30. These are really great colors. My daughter would love this for Christmas.

  31. I really like the Love in Paris colors. I'm really drawn to the more neutral colors like these.

    ReplyDelete
  32. i haven't really used much nyx, except for the butter lipstick. i think out of these two i definitely would go with the love in florence one too! i really love the green shades, but i don't know that it fits best with my complexion. I usually try to do more purples for eyeshadows.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Those shades are nice and the quality looks great too! I love it when eyeshadows are really pigmented like that!

    ReplyDelete
  34. They have really nice shades for this one. Ladies would really love this.

  39. my daughter is a make up fanatic. would love to try this.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love trying new shadows. These look amazing and not to crazy expensive.

    ReplyDelete
  41. My favorite is definitely the "Love in Florence" palette, just because I usually prefer lighter, brighter colors like it's medium green shade. But both palettes have very appealing colors, and I'd love to get both of them for Christmas! Cruelty-free is a big plus to me too, since I never buy cosmetics that arent cruelty free. Does their eyeshadow stay on for a long time after applying it?

  44. My teen and tween would love these, to be honest. What a great idea for a stocking stuffer for a teen or woman! Appreciate you sharing this brand!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Very pretty colors. I really need to play around with makeup more. I never get eye shadow right for some reason.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I'm not much of a makeup person, however, I really like the colors on this palette for sure. I like to use eye shadow that's just enough pop, but not too crazy.
