See it through my Eyes

The NYX Love in Florence is 5 color eye shadow palettes which I picked up during a sale from the NYX website. These colors are quite basic and can be used for both daily wear ( browns and coral ) and occasions (gold and green). The small size and perfect combination of usual and dressy shades.


It comes in a small palette form. The lid is transparent and the colors within can be seen through. The small compact size is easy to carry in the makeup stash. /it doesn’t have anmirror, thus making it travel friendly. It has a regular two sided sponge tip applicator.

Texture & Shades

The texture of all the shades is primarily quite soft. There are two different types of textures matte and shimmery.  The third shade that is brown is the only matte shade.  Rest four shades are shimmer based. The shimmer shades are quite pigmented but surprisingly not over the top.
The first shade is gold which is yellow based and could have been better pigmented.
The coral shade is similar to the gold in pigmentation, but nevertheless pretty.
The third shade is brown; it is a perfect crease color. It’s also the only matte shade in the lot. Certainly versatile.
The next shade is a beautiful green. This color is the most pigmented out of all. The shade looks beautiful with brown and gold.
The last shade is a blackish brown with glitter specs on a matte base. I love how it turns out and is quite pigmented too.

All the shade stays on for long for about 6 to 8 hours depending on the weather conditions. The darker shades stay on for longer. They might just crease up after long hours which is alright.
