NYX Love in Florence Palettes: Gelato for Two and Eat, Love, Be Fab

NYX Cosmetics has released ten new five pan Love in Florence eyeshadow palettes ($8.00) for Spring 2013. A representative of the brand was kind enough to send me two for review.

I wish these had a mirror because otherwise they’re great for travel, but I’m loving NYX’s sleek new packaging. They’ve added a bow closure and a thoughtfully designed sponge tipped applicator. These are packaged just like NYX’s Love in Rio and Love in Paris palettes (also new for Spring).

Gelato for Two includes shimmery plums, matte gray, light matte lilac, and shimmery golden peach.

The shades in Eat, Love, Be Fab (shimmery green, mid-tone and deeper brown, golden peach, and pinky peach) are all pigmented and easy to work with. I love this palette because the shades are so versatile.

I love that there are so many wearable palettes in the Love in Florence Range. There are also several that would be perfect for creating a smokey eye. Check out all ten here.

Here’s a daytime smokey eye I did using a few of the shades from Gelato for Two:

Bottom Line:

I think these palettes are a steal at $8.00. I really appreciate a well coordinated palette and most of these have a great balance of light, mid-tone, and darker shades, which makes them versatile. They’re also great for travel.

Eat, Love, Be Fab and Gelato for Two are available at nyxcosmetics.com ($8.00).
