NYX Nude on Nude Eyeshadow Pallete

I purchased this pallete in January and have had a fair use of it. So today i'll share my thoughts on this product.

The Nyx Nude on Nude pallete comes in 20 eyeshadow colors and 10 lip glosses.
This pallete comes in a mix of matte/satin and shimmery colors.
The packaging in my opinion is not of a high quality. Very flimsy. Its made of plastic, and the pull out lip gloss compartment, is loosely clipped in, hence easily slipped out. I've already accidentally destroyed one lip gloss by accidentally poking my finger in it while trying to store away the pallete when the lip compartment  slipped out.

When i first got it, I was excited to try it out but became immediately dissapointed with it.
The eyeshadows are powdery. I'm in no way exaggerating. i could feel it falling on to my cheeks when i was applying it.

Disappointing ! It comes with really nice shimmery colors but the quality is unacceptable. U really need an eyeshadow primer to make it stay put. The shimmery colors doesnt spread evenly, so u'll have to blend and spread it well. Forget the applicator that comes with it and use your own eyeshadow brush or your fingers.U need to dab it on to build the color, not just swipe it on your eyelids. Lets not start on the eyeshadows in mattes. Absolutely poor pigmentation! Heck i bought a cheap eyeshadow pallete online last year, and even that cheapo pallete had better pigmentation and color pay off.

I couldnt be bothered to try the lip glosses.
Since i've bought it, i'm just going to use the eyeshadows as much as i can. But no to recommending it. Yes it's affordable at RM99. But with this kinda product quality. I'm better off using my cheap online purchased make up pallete .

I gravitated towards this pallete out of all the others in Sephora because of the name: Nude on Nude, since  I initially wanted the Urban Decay Naked pallete . But the Urban Decay was pricier, so i went with this one.
People online were saying this is a dupe version of the UD Naked pallete, and some say you cant compare them because its totally different. Well, i cant comment on this, but i surely still want the UD Naked pallete because of the great reviews.

I Want

 Things/items i wanna do and get (Again the list is influenced by my fav youtubers: The SacconeJolys /Leflooftv)

1.First off, I sooo wanna go to Costa Coffee and grab a bite to eat. I've bought a beverage to go from Costa's before but i've never sat down and had a meal. I'd order the toasted tuna sandwich and probably an iced chocolate. Since i dont drink coffee, I'll make my husband get a cup, because my dream wouldnt be complete if we didnt get a cup of coffee like Anna and Joffee always does when they go into Costa's for lunch.
Even at home they drink their coffee religiously with their Costa coffee cup. How can i not dream of going to Costa Coffee.Sighh...

 2. Alpen porridge. Another staple in Anna's diet. She has this every morning with half a banana (sliced) and a dash of cinnamon powder for breakfast. Previously her favourite was the raspberry apple and raisin flavour, but about a week ago she's been having the new flavour which is the apricot almond and hazelnut. Alpen has many flavours but the one i'd like to get is the apricot one and the maple and pecan flavour. Looks soo yummers!

3. Batiste Dry Syampoo- I want to try and use dry syampoo. As i know its not good to wash my hair daily because it strips out the natural oil my hair/head produces that's supposedly good. I cant go a day without syampooing. I hate it when my hair gets flat and oily and itchy. So what's better than a dry syampoo to give my 2nd day or maybe 3rd day hair that fluff and freshness. Again seen many youtubers use this brand. So cant wait to get one.

 4. Bed Head hair products by Tigi. Honestly, i think the brand name is the reason I want to get it. I wanna try the syampoo and conditioner. Just for fun. It comes in vibrant color packaging and FUN ranges :  dumb blonde, self absorbed, superstar, moisture maniac, brunette goddess and more..

 5. Yankee Candle. Anna loves these candles. She said it smells amazing. She got the 'spiced pumpkin' scent for Halloween and for Christmas she got the 'christmas eve' scent. I think Yankee Candle is from the US , but its available in the UK and Ireland. They have all these cute n fun scents like 'banana nut bread', 'vanilla cupcake', 'home sweet home', 'cinnamon & sugar', 'almond cookie' and so so many more! I want!!!

 6. MilkShake conditioning Whipped Cream. The brand/name got me itching and so eager to buy and try this product. I imagine it smelling sweet like a vanilla/choc milkshake with whipped cream on top. OK now i want the real thing to drink! Anyway, its a leave in mousse conditioner that's supposed to do wonders to your hair. Read great reviews about this product and it was featured in one of Anna's monthly favourite item.

I think i'm a lil obsessed with Anna, Joffee and Emilia. My dad's taking us all to my youngest brother's graduation this summer. And i've secretly thought of going to Ireland to hopefully get Anna to do a meet up. Cray Cray right! More like obsessed. Unfortunately i recalled that they're going to Sorrento this summer.
