And no, it is not a lipstick. I know, crazy. But if there is something that I like at least as much as lipsticks, it's wearing a bronze smockey eye look, which completely justify this new purchase. First of all, I was so happy to see NYX in Loft make up corner in Shibuya. I've been wanting to try this brand for such a long time, watching lip swatches of every single lip products they sell on loop, but never really commit to purchase it online when I was in France. The selection here is so tiny compared to the crazy variety of product that you can find on the NYX website. But hey, better than nothing.
I picked up those two Jumbo Eye Pencils to use as base or eyeshadows. With the super hot weather coming here in Japan
(never used that much deodorant in my life, I know, super TMI) I was thinking that those babies might help my smockey to stay in place for a longer period of time, and let's be honest, eye shadows sticks are a trend right now and I was certainly one of the last beauty blogger to buy one of these.
I selected the color 611 Yogurt that is a very luminous color, it is a nudy/beige color, perfect for a natural look or to highlight your inner corners. Then I also picked a darker shade; 609 French Fries (who picked that name? I guess we can all agree, french fries are yellow, not brown) and I'm pretty sure that this intense shimmery brown is gonna replace my all time favourite smockey eye shade, Smog from Urban Decay. Texture wise, they are really creamy and were so easy to swatch. No need to mention that NYX is super affordable. Totally recommend them!
