It’s no secret that I love NYX Cosmetics. So when I discovered that my September Ipsy bag contained a trio of NYX eye shadows created exclusively for Ipsy subscribers, I was psyched. Not surprisingly, NYX delivered a trio of high-quality shadows that are easy to apply, long lasting and versatile – the three shades can be worn together or separately.
The set contains a light beige shadow, a rich medium brown, and a deep black that makes a great liner. The first two shades have the slightest bit of shimmer. I really like the beige, but I cannot get enough of the brown; it’s just right to make my blue eyes pop and I find myself reaching for it each and every day.
This month I also received a Crown Brush AC012 Shadow/Crease Duet brush from Ipsy, and I have to say I’m really impressed. I usually prefer a sponge tip applicator for eyeshadow application, but this brush is firm enough to pick up the right amount of powder while still being soft enough to glide smoothly over the lid. Both of these Ipsy picks have definitely made it into the daily rotation!
