NYX/Cherry Culture Haul: Pictures, Mini Review and Swatches

I got my package from Cherry Culture yesterday from the F&F sale. I got 3 of the runway collection palettes, 3 cream blushes and 1 powder blush.

Jazz Night is definitely my favourite of the 3 eyeshadow palettes. It is the most pigmented and variations of colours. I'd recommend getting this one for sure. You can't tell in the pictures but the navy blue has purple shimmers in it.

nyx versus eyeshadow palette

Versus is predominately purple shadows, some browns. The darker purple on the bottom left is really pretty.

nyx champagne and caviar

Champagne and Caviar is pretty but, a lot of the colours are pretty light and look the same. This is what I had expected from this palette from the reviews that I had read and it's definitely true. However, this is good for a nice, neutral everyday, so I don't regret getting this at all. 

nyx cream blush
The NYX cream blushes are really, really nice. I am a cream blush virgin and was really excited to try these out and they are so smooth and apply like butter. Pinky powder blush is really intense, bright pink, and is supposed to be a dupe for NARS Desire.

I am really happy with my purchases, can't wait to try the shadows. The packaging is sturdy and I like that you get 10 colours. These items were pretty inexpensive, but really nice quality.  Do you have any of these products, how do you like them?

@roamy - I was for a while too, glad I got them and am happy with the selection, they are a good deal for so many shadows.

@eleventh - I've never seen these palettes in stores so I thought I would pick them up online and 20% off can't go wrong, shipping is kinda pricey to canada, but it's cool. I don't order from them a lot. I think this was the 2nd time. Do you have a lot of nyx stuff?

i would rather order from cuz its one fixed shipping rate for different order price range. i dont have that many nyx, i have alot of the loose pigments and round lipsticks though, which i dont use. but having these makes me love the brand that much. they're great :)

Wow! Jazz Night is really pretty, and I LOVE those cream blushes. You should do a FOTD with the products and post it online. I bet it would be really pretty.

I own some of their eye shadows but not in the palette form. I like that cream blush "glow" looks like it would be great for summer!


Lauren said... Best Blogger Tips

These products look so lovely, I really like the colours.
I haven't heard much about the brand- what're the prices/ quality like?

Lauren said... Best Blogger Tips

These are really beautiful colours and products!
I haven't heard much about NYX, is it good quality and what're the prices like?

Justine @ Productrater said... Best Blogger Tips

@ lauren - The prices are pretty good, you can check it out on cherry culture.. link below

The palettes $8
cream blush $5
powder blush $6

And it always helps when there is a sale on, that's when I got mine.

The quality is really good, for drugstore in my opinion. The cream blush is soooo nice.
