NYX Wicked Dreams Palette ~ First Impression

Posted on: December 28, 2012

👀 Look what came in the mail today. NYX Wicked Dreams Eyeshadow Palette. It’s a gorgeous palette.
But first, I have to tell you I won this palette in a blog giveaway. One of my favorite blogs, Beauty In A Budget, please check it out, I promise you will like.

This is the back of the palette, showing all 24 colors.

These colors are Ga-Morge-Ous!. Yes, I made up a new word. I know my iPad camera is not the best so I took these pics with my new phone, but even with the HDR setting, the vibrancy of these colors still is not coming through. So Pretty!

It looks to me like 13 of these shades are matte, there are some shimmer-y shades and 2 gorgeous shimmer/glitter in blue and green.

A few swatches. The first 3 are some brown matte shades that will look pretty on my blue eyes and I might be able to use on my eyebrows as well. The next 2 are the bright green and navy blue, the navy one has sparkle to it, and the 2 on the end are a copper brown that I think will also look good for my eyes.

The Wicked Dreams palette from NYX retails for just $15 and can be found here.
Anyone who reads this blog or watches my You Tube channel knows I love NYX products. I just wish they were sold in my area. Whenever I get to an Ulta, the first section I head to is NYX. I found the NYX Matte lipsticks this summer, and I still love them. Merlot is my favorite color and I’ve almost used an entire tube in about 4 months. Considering all the lipstick I own, that shows how much I love it.
I’m excited to try this palette and I will do a full review soon. I want to thank Teresa at BudgetInABeauty Blog for hosting this giveaway and I want to thank Jeff at Blue Scandal for sending the palette to me. This will be fun.

I can’t do a blog post without a NOTD. This is the other Gosh polish sent by my Secret Santa, called Drizzle. So pretty, after all the red, navy and glitter of the holiday I’m liking the green creams right now.

💅 As always, thanks for stopping by.

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
