NYX Spring Fling Palette for Spring 2012 Swatches, Photos & Review
NYX Cosmetics Spring Fling Palette might be the perfect palette for those who love pale pastel shades in the spring and summer.
Spring Fling features twelve matte and pearl eyeshadows, two blushes, two lip glosses and highlight/contour powders. All of this comes wrapped up in a really pretty heavy cardboard palette with cherry blossoms on the cover and inside. It also has a nice large mirror.
The blushes, lip glosses and highlight/contour powders are hidden away inside a pull-out drawer.
Top row left to right (over primer)
All the eyeshadows feel very soft to the touch. The mattes did tend to be a little bit chalky looking, but then again most are pastels. The shimmers showed up a bit more on the skin.
First is a very pale pink/nude matte.
Second is a light vanilla matte.
Third is a pearly lavender shade.
Fourth is a pale lilac matte.
Fifth is a bright pale green pearl. Love this green shade.
Second row left to right (over primer)
First is a deep chocolate brown matte. Nice and even.
Second is a pearly medium mauve.
Third is a pale light blue pearl. One of my favs.
Fourth is a vivid yellow pearl. Another great one.
Fifth is a VERY pale pearly orange. For some reason this shade is extremely sheer and doesn’t show up very well.
Blushes, highlight/contour powder
The first blush is a peach matte but I had a hard time getting it to show up very well in my swatch.
The second one is more pigmented and is a bright pink matte.
The highlight shade is a bright white and the contour shade is a black. I still find these shades really extreme and odd to contour with…
The first shade is nearly completely clear, though it looks pale pink in the palette.
The second shade is a bright sheer pink shade.
Overall: Well you definitely have to like pastels and more sheer shades to be into this palette. There were a few eyeshadow shades I really liked, but most were pretty sheer for me. The blushes and lip glosses didn’t grab me that much. It doesn’t feel like the quality is there as much as their individual products.
