Days 35-38: NYX Candy Glitter Liner swatches

 Did everyone have a nice weekend? I saw the Avengers and it was AWESOME. Best movie I've seen in a long time! My weekend was quite busy and as a result I lost a few days of blogging.. you can't blame me for being human and having a life, right? ;D I don't think I can do posts for each day I missed so instead I'll just pick up where I left off and pretend it never happened. A few days isn't a big deal ;P

Today I decided to take some swatches of the NYX Candy Glitter Liners I got from IMATS a few weeks ago. I'll also talk a little about what I think of them, so if this interests you then please keep reading! And don't forget to click the pictures for more detail and truer color!
I generously dipped/swiped each color about 3 times for these swatches.
 These 3 are my favorite, so pretty. I used Crystal in a recent look and it was lovely. I like that it's neutral with multicolored sparkles so it goes with pretty much anything. My sister used Aqua in a recent look as well and it's gorgeous. El Dorado reminds me of Christmas since the main colors are gold, green and red. I need to use this in a look soon too!
 I used Purple in a recent look and I like it. it's just a straight dark purple glitter. Mocha Latte however.. it's very strange. Not like the rest at all. I don't know if it's this shade in general or I just got a bad one, but you can see the difference in the swatch; first of all the glitter itself is much finer than the others, almost more like a shimmer than actual glitter. Secondly, the consistency is very thin and runny, like the base is made of water instead of a gel like the others. As a result it doesn't apply well at all. I'm bummed because it looked like such a pretty copper color. :(

 Here is Crystal with NYX "Snow" loose glitter patted over top; they are very similar and go perfectly together! A friend sent me a sample of this glitter a while back and I absolutely love it<3

Out of focus for sparkle effect!
Out of focus again; you can really see how Crystal/Snow "glows", so pretty!
So there you go, I hope you enjoyed these photos! Do you own any NYX Candy Glitter Liners? If so, which ones and how do you feel about them? :)

  1. Wow they're so pigmented! The one glitter liner I tried wasn't nearly as opaque!

  2. Of the five, I want Crystal because it would look so great on inner corners!!! And I *need* to see Avengers SOON. I am a huge fan of comics and it feels wrong that I haven't seen it yet... although I can blame it on moving and being busy, but still. :-(

  3. I own the colors "Passion" and "Disco Ball" in these glitter liners by NYX. Both of them are beautiful! "Disco Ball" is the prettiest, though. So far, I LOVE these glitter liners. The next one I'm considering is "Gold".
