I would like to start off by saying that I am sorry for the long hiatus. Between work, the holidays, and travel (there will be a post soon on where I went), I didn’t have a lot of time to create posts. But going forward in 2015, I will be posting much more often and hope to have a few more posts up in the near future.
Thank you for taking the time to read A Life Jess Ordinary!
While on a work trip to Virginia, I stopped at a Wegman’s (it’s a supermarket on the east coast that I love, kind of like a Byerlys, for those in Midwest, but with some better pricing). While browsing the makeup aisle, because you never know where you’ll find your next must have item. I found the NYX, Love in Paris eye shadow palette, and bonus, it was $2.99. I decided to get the palette to hopefully be able to have a quick grab palette with good options for short trips. This will be a quick review with my first impressions and if I would purchase again.
At first glance, there are a great range of colors both matte and with shimmer. The packaging is cute and very sturdy, which is great for travel.
My first impression for this palette, honestly wasn’t a good one. I think that although this is has a great mix of colors my first actual use was less than stellar. There was a lot of fall out and the colors weren’t as pigmented as I had hoped. The pictures I took were the very first use and it was difficult to get the look that I wanted.
