NYX Eyeshadow: Love You So Mochi

This is the NYX Mochi Electric Pastels palette, all shimmers and I LOVE it.

I am going to be completely reckless and say that this could even be your stand-alone palette depending on how you view colours and shimmery shades.

I love colours and shimmers because they make my small hooded eyes pop and appear bigger/brighter. For a quick eyeshadow look, I wear single shades on the lid,  blend it outwards to diffuse it and use an eyeliner and/or mascara.

For added depth I might add a matte shadow in the crease.20180320_105335

Sometimes I will pair matte shadows that I have lying around to go with corresponding shimmers in the palette.

For example I will pair an orange matte with the peach shimmer or reach for a neutral matte to go with the copper shimmer.FaceSWTThese shadows apply well with a flat brush or finger and build on themselves. The shimmers are beautiful, not chunky and have minimal fall out.Mochi

I have inserted a few comparison swatches, in natural light and flash.PinksThree pinks swatched side by side to show the difference.

White ShimsThe three icy shades: #1 looks like a light blue in the pan but when applied it is white with a purplish shift to it. #5 is an icy blue and #9 is a white shimmer.

PeachesThe two warm shades: #4 a peach shimmer and #6 a copper shimmer. Both were hard to shoot because of changing light situation, apologies for that.

I still need to use them for a look but I haven’t been for a night out as yet 🙂
