So back in June to celebrate my “Name Day” (Game of Thrones addicts will understand – AKA my birthday), I was treated to a makeup shopping spree.
My choice was the World of NYX at the Clicks Mall of Africa.
As can be expected, it was like letting a two year old run wild in a candy store.
One of my purchases was the NYX Beauty School Dropout Back to Basics palette.
It comes in a cute black folder with 35 eye shadows, two blushes, two highlighters as well as two contour/bronzing shades.
You read right all these amazing goodies in one compact palette for around R475.
I have been using the blush and highlighters daily. Love love love the formula. You can create and dewy look or a dramatic look as the colour is build-able.
The eyeshadows are not the greatest formula and most of the colours do not last a long time once applied. I have tried this with and without a primer.
I prefer the metallic shades as they are pigmented and seem to stay put for a little longer.
The contouring/bronzing shades were not made for a darker complexion and don’t show on my skin tone.
Do I regret my decision to buy this pallete??? Definitely not!
I find NYX products affordable and good quality – – – looking forward to trying more of their products and reviewing them for you.
You lovelies who have purchased this palette, please share your thoughts on it with me 🙂
