Bah! NYX is sold at like 2 stores in this entire city, and it's only a select few items. I saw some and got all happy of course and grabbed a few things completely forgetting I could get it online much cheaper. Atleast this way I got to see the colours first, but no testers.
I grabbed 3 trios, 2 lil jars of loose eyeshadow (there were green, it would be a crime if I didn't get them) and 3 single eyeshadows.
The singles were Earthy Shimmer, Fahrenheit and Daisy.
I haven't swiped Fahrenheit and MACs Paradisco side by side yet, but I saw somewhere that it was a MAC dupe, and to me, right now, that looks wrong. I won't know for sure until I swatch them but I'll let you know. It was the whole reason I've been wanting it for so long!
Anyways, Earthy Shimmer = crap for colour payoff. SHEER CRAP. SHEER CHUNKY FLAKEY CRAP! I even used a primer and it looked like sheer grey crud.
I did my eyes and was so disapointed but Fyrinnae saved the day! I put some Pixie Epoxy over top of what I did already and patted more NYX on top. It worked! My blending didn't work so great as I only put the epoxy on the bit that had the Earthy Shimmer and you could probably tell in the pics but oh wells. If you have a shadow that is failing you, try it with the Epoxy next. I am thisclose to writing them a love poem. Is that stalkery?
Break out the pepper spray boys :D <3 hearts! <3
