NYX - The Caribbean Collection - I Dream of Barbados.



This Palette is from NYX's Caribbean Collection - I Dream of Barbados-palette. A sunset blazing over a tropical beach apparently, or in my case for the coming December, The Frozen Lavender.

I know the original collection's name has the word "Caribbean" in it and naturally we think of a hot colourful summer with lot's of flowers, beaches, fruit punch and naked ladies? LOL. But no, thats the fun part about make up, you can get creative, mix and produce a new meaning from a single colour - besides, we have 5 in this palette hoho. (It could be just be the fact that i'm cheap and lazy so i like to make one palette do it all. haha) Whatever the reason, i'm sure you get my point.




I've used all the colors in the palette using mostly the silvers to blend with the purples to create this cold dreamy grayish purple look for the winter.
The colors are pigmented and soft and like i mentioned, theres so many combos you can come up with this palette. You can do either a basic smokey eye using the gray and black, or a smokey plum using the purples or for a nice winter look using the grays and purples, my Frozen Lavender look. Hehe.

  1. Purple I like, a lot, Lavender to, Frozen Lavender looks like a good choice. The level of cosmetic artistry in this is as close to perfection as is possible I think. B|
