NYX Kiss in Casablanca Eyeshadow

NYX Kiss in Casablanca Eyeshadow ($5.00 for 0.09 oz.) is an ocean blue with a soft, frosted finish. What I love about this particular shade of blue is the overall soft, muted quality to it, but it hasn’t diminished the quiet vibrancy of the color at all. It’s like a mix of MAC Freshwater and MAC Deep Truth. MAC Pure Creation is a bit similar, too.

The eyeshadow has a really soft, powdery quality that can result in fall out if you aren’t aware of it (I also think you end up with more product than you need for application, because a little goes a long way). It has great color payoff and melts against skin for a really smooth result. NYX says these will wear “for many hours,” though I will say they tend to look faded after six or seven hours if used without a base. This particular shade I didn’t have any fading issues with when I used it over an eyeshadow base.

Free for Haul Friday, Volume #112

Welcome to Free For Haul Friday!

  • Haul:  Chanel Spring 2011, though it should arrive sometime today, it hasn’t yet! I did receive the three polishes yesterday.
  • Weekend plans:  Christmas, Christmas, Christmas celebrations with friends and family. Busy, busy!  Also hoping to sneak in some time to go through all the comments in the queue.
  • Best gift you’ve ever received?:   The first time my boyfriend sent me flowers.  I had never received flowers from a non-family member before, and I remember being at college and getting a call about someone trying to make a flower delivery.  I was totally confused and couldn’t figure out why I was getting flowers.  I spent half the day wondering and finally figured it was my dad–turns out it was my boyfriend!

This week’s Mellan photo…


I think he’s looking for food – honestly, he was NOT impressed with this toy. Ignores it completely!

Not quite for the holidays, but my friend’s birthday is in December, so I’ve been collecting pieces from each Chanel collection over the year, because she’s a big fan of Chanel and I know she’s been trying to cut back on her beauty expenses! I’m also giving Chanel Dragon Rouge Allure Laque to a few friends, and I sent a bundle o’ Lush to a very lovely friend!
