NYX Nude on Nude Natural Look Kit REVIEW and Makeup tip!

So I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who finds that the bottom eyeliner that's applied at the beginning of the day, doesn't look as immaculate by the end of the day. I have tried so many different eyeliners and none of them seem to do the trick. 

I'm not too adventurous when it comes to eye liner and end up using it until it runs out and then end up buying the same one again even though it gave me panda eyes! I'm not entirely sure why I do this... The eyeliner I'm currently using is the Maybelline EyeStudio Lasting Gel Eyeliner in 01 Black. Now, I usually line my top waterline and then bring the remaining liner left on the eyeliner brush along my bottom lashes. This usually looks pretty good in the morning when I apply it (most of the time) but by lunch time, it has left me with dark smudges underneath my eyes! Argh!  

So I decided to put an end to this and instead of black eyeliner, I use eyeshadow to line my bottom lash line. I'm still using the gel liner to line my top lash line as that seems to stay put throughout the whole day. This isn't a new makeup trick or anything and I know it's probably a well known trick already but this also gives me an excuse to talk about this NYX eyeshadow palette that I've been loving! It's the Nude on Nude Natural Look Kit and I have honestly been using it every day since I got it. I take a flat eyeshadow brush and dab the tip into the chocolate brown eyeshadow (bottom right) and just press it lightly along my bottom lash line. By doing this, I now no longer get smudged liner!

Can you tell which is my favourite? :-)

Another way I wear this palette is by taking my ring finger and dipping it into the pinky pearly shade (great colour description right there! It's the middle left one incase you didn't understand my description!!) and applying it to the whole eyelid and then dab a little bit in the inner corners of my eye. This takes minimum effort but really brightens up your eyes especially when you have to get up early in the morning like me! 

I bought it in TK Maxx a while ago and couldn't find the product on the NYX UK website, so I am guessing they may have discontinued it! But I did find a few on there that I like the look of and are quite similar to this one... This one is also another natural palette that would look pretty on the eyes for daily wear or the Love in Florence palette (how cute is the name of this palette?!) would look gorgeous too. You could create a natural look with the peachy coral colour and the shimmery taupes or you could create a smokey eye using the black - I think I may have just convinced myself to buy this!  

Have you tried any of NYX's products?
