If the eyes are the windows to the soul then NYX’s I dream of St. Lucia eyeshadow palette will surely give you a colorful personality.
The I Dream of St. Lucia palette consists of 5 best selling NYX eyeshadows and I found it to be the most appealing out of their Caribbean Collection. I rarely use pastel colors since they tend to make my eyes smaller but when blended well, it can give an angelic effect. Just don’t forget to draw a thick or winged eyeliner to make your eyes bigger.
I wasn’t satisfied with the pigmentation of the eyeshadows when I swatched them on my hand. But after trying it again with NYX High Definition Eyeshadow Base (item below), it came out like this. I was mostly impressed at the buttercup yellow shade. Obviously, I wouldn’t dare go out with this type of makeup unless there’s a themed party or else I’ll get a long sermon from my parents and weird looks from people outside. I get that a lot even when I’m just wearing bright colored contact lenses. Sigh, I wish weird or bright makeup was more acceptable!
For blush, my personal pick is their PINKY (PB05) shade. It’s definitely a steal compared to the MAC Pink Swoon blush which costs around P1,400. (All prices available upon inquiry at Five by Five)
For the lips, I used NYX African Queen (LG115) lip gloss. I’m very happy with this shade because it’s a mix of my favorite colors, magenta and hot pink. You don’t need to wear any lipstick underneath because the gloss itself can stand alone and give you pink, pouty, party lips!
See, I told you the eyeshadow gives an “angelic effect” *lol* but I think my Freshlook Contact Lenses in Pure Hazel was the halo on top of this innocent look.
NYX Cosmetics is not yet available locally but it can be ordered at a very low price from Five by Five Multiply Shop. I heard that all orders coursed through Multiply will get free shipping until a limited time only so let your fingers do the shopping!
Aside from cosmetics, Five by Five is very popular for having very affordable and trendy shoes. I got the opportunity to buy one at a low price thanks to Multiply.com’s participation at Bloggers United 2.
I got a pair of ENID shoes. These are Givenchy-inspired jersey bandage suede wedges and will make you about 13.5cm taller. (wedge height) They are hella comfy so my feet didn’t hurt even if I used it for a whole day at a bazaar.
The color can also make your legs look slim and longer. Do I still look like I’m only 5’1 ft in this photo? :p By the way, that’s not my real hair. I’m using my Catwalk Georgina Wig~ channeling a sexy teacher/ secretary. :))
Online Shopping Tip: Nowadays, there are so many fake online shops and scammers everywhere so be careful who you transact with. Five By Five has a “Price Match Guarantee” wherein they will offer you the same price that other shops have as long as you submit a form to them with a link to the said seller.
With that said, you can feel more safe and confident when you order items from them rather than ordering it from some random online shop and not being able to sleep as you wait for your package to arrive. (Yes, it happens to me. I’m very paranoid. Hee!)
Happy shopping! :)
