NYX Cream Palette

by Vanessa Garcia,

When its “Girls Night Out” with your friends or a weekend getaway to Vegas, I always like to add a little sparkle to my look. I am an avid fan of NYX cosmetics in general and I have a love for nifty palettes, so you can imagine when I couldn't wait to get my hands on the NYX Glitter Cream Palette!

It comes in 5 creamy, delicious shades, fully packed with glitter and sponged-tip applicators. You can use it practically anywhere your little heart desires! Eyes, lips, face, or body. I am not much of a glitter person, but I DO enjoy glitter eyeliners to make the eyes pop and look more festive. What I liked about these palettes were the gel/creamy consistency it has to it because it really allows the glitter to adhere and last a long time. I also found it easy to apply since it just glides on, however you may have to reapply several times to get an even line of glitter across your lashline. My first stroke and I had glitter in random spots, I had to continuously apply it straight across the lashline in a “dab and swipe” motion to get the effect I wanted. The only thing I didn't like (as with all glitters) is that it takes me forever to get every bit of glitter off, and because its cream the more it held on, but then again that's a good sign your look will last the whole night.

I also used it on my cheeks and body for a little sparkle for a night out on the town and I liked how it wasn't overly glittery and I could control the amount of glitter I wanted. Now with the holiday season around the corner, I think the silver and gold cream glitter would be a perfect addition to any holiday look. Another way I can think of to use this is to place a bit of it on a spoolie and apply it to the tips of your eyelashes for an eye opening sparkly look; or perhaps at the end corner of your eyelid for a glam look.

Overall, I love the choices of colors you get in just one palette, not to mention the other palettes with different colors. It's great for anytime you want a little sparkle to your look, with all the colors available, I am pretty sure you can even match it to your outfit!
