I bought this palette on a whim. Like almost all of my other makeup products, right ? The truth is, I buy a lot of makeup but sometimes, I\’ll just take years for a specific product before deciding if I\’m eventually going to buy it. That was the case with this Ultimate Electric palette from NYX – something about the shades being declined in three different finishes wasn\’t exactly screaming your name and I rather thought I was going to waste my money.
Sometimes I\’ll go to NYX and think, \”Mmmh, is there anything new I can treat myself to ?\” and that day, that was it. I think NYX have four palettes with this system of four shades declined in different finishes and there might be one or two others I\’m thinking vaguely of getting and that I\’m not getting because I already have the same shades somewhere else in my collection. But the price in itself keeps calling me since they all retail for €18 in France – quite cool for 12 shades (1.18 g each).
This one, on the other side, has colors I\’ve never seen before and don\’t own. The range of blues was what caught my attention in the first place, I\’m currently loving this kind of cool-toned baby blues and I\’ve already worn a combination of all three at work and it looked really good ! The glittery shades are not too glittery, not chunky or anything and that\’s actually what I like most – I don\’t really like glitter and the four here are perfect for me.
The lasting power is really good, the eyeshadows are a bit powdery but nothing I can\’t work with easily by doing my face makeup after the eyes and although you can\’t see it all that well on that first swatch picture, there REALLY is a difference between the mattes, shimmers and glittery shades ! Since I\’m doing more and more makeup looks that I\’m going to be posting here little by little, I\’ll try and use it soon for you to see just how well it performs ! I\’m actually thinking of getting the matte multicolor palette now… Darn. Xx
