Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream Sydney Swatch
Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream Istanbul Swatch
Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream Stockholm Swatch
Okay guys, I think you're going to have to stop me.. my obsession with the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams is getting a little out of hand now.  If you've been reading my latest posts and tweets, you'll know by now that I have a thing for these, and I can't help but add a new lip cream to my basket whenever I'm placing a Boots or ASOS order. As my last NYX post only focussed on the 2 first shades that I picked up (Stockholm and Morocco), I decided to put up this post to show swatches of the newer shades that I've added to my ever-growing collection.

Too Faced 'Love' Palette: 3 Ways To Wear It

Ever since I posted about my adoration for the Too Faced 'Love' palette back around Christmas time, I have been promising to recreate several eye makeup looks using the array of colours that it consists of. Every shade is so wearable and the palette is broken up into 3 different 'looks', with a daytime and nighttime version of each. 
I find this palette to be so versatile and the colours are complimentary both when I have and haven't tanned. Below are 3 of the looks that I have recreated using the Too Faced guides provided within the palette; I recreated the nighttime version of each look...

I knew from the beginning that 'Pure Love' was likely to be my favourite of the 3 looks that I was recreating. I always prefer to wear warmer-toned eyeshadows, mostly in copper/brown/golden shades. The first section of the palette is split up into the following shades: Dearest (gold metallic), Cherish (peach metallic), Adore (bronze metallic), Desire (light matte chocolate brown) and Amorous (dark matte chocolate brown). Both of the looks for Pure Love, the day & nighttime versions, tend to follow the same colour scheme; both looks use Cherish for the base, Desire for the crease and Amorous for the line.
