Lets raise a toast, shall we? ~ NYX eyeshadow in Champagne

What makes your heart skip a beat? Apart from Johnny Depp I mean :P. Do neutral colors make you swoon or is it the color eyeshadows that makes you take out your credit card in a snap?

For me neutral color eyeshadows make my heart sing. I love an eyeshadow which has just the right amount of chocolaty warmth, a color which has just the perfect shade of gold running through it or a milky brown color which feels like silk on my skin. That is another reason why I love MAC so much. They do neutral colors beautifully. I think their color eyeshadow range can do with some additions. But neutral they have got it covered. Every nuetral  color from Vanilla to Smut is lust worthy.

Since I obviously cant keep buying MAC. The madness has to stop sometime! I turned to NYX for credit card friendly dupes. NYX eyeshadow in Champagne is one of their best selling eyeshadows I believe and has a rating of 4.6 on Makeupalley. This color is a  light peach and beige color with golden shimmer. There is just a hint of peach. On my skin it mostly looks like a very alive beige color. I feel that slight hint of peach really makes it unique. And the shimmer is very finely done. Nothing OTT at all.

Price?  Around $ 4 at Cherryculture

How to ?

I love to use NYX Champagne as a sheer wash of color on my lids. This just brightens my eyes very subtly.
I also sometimes add a bit of a matt brown in the corner to  add some definition to my eyes.
This works as a lovely highlight color.

The Good?

I love the color. It’s just beautiful.

The shimmer is very finely milled.

This is so economical. I love a good deal J

I love the simple and functional NYX packaging. And the quilted pattern on top is adorable.

Super soft and easy to blend.

The Not so Good?

This is eyeshadow is a little powdery and there is a bit of fallout. Usually the  NYX Metallic eyeshadows are quite well pressed.

Makeup-Mantra Rating:- 9/10

I love to use NYX Champagne for a quick bright eye look. It almost makes me feel as good as a glass of bubbly .

What is your favorite neutral eyeshadow color?
