In addition to the 9-pan Love in Paris Palettes like Je Ne Sais Quois, NYX also released some gorgeous combos of 5 shades entitled Love in Florence. For this post, I’m focusing on Ciao Bella!
What the NYX website says about the Love in Florence Eye Shadow Palette:
Live, explore and discover Love in Florence through the lush 5 color eye shadow palettes available in rich hues catering to all eye colors and looks! This compact palette comes with a dual ended applicator so you can carry the kit and spread the love everywhere you go. Available in 10 different complementary collections.
Ciao Bella is a lovely array of pink, blue, coral and taupe pale shades and one deep black shade. I found all of the shades in this palette to be rather light, with the taupe coming off as just a sheer glitter. The applied nicely, just with not so much pigment, even when using a firm brush. I imagine you could make it more vivid if you use them wet. That being said, the eye look did last the entire day with no fading or creasing.
As for the packaging the black palette is sleek with a window on top so you can check out the colors. No mirror, but that is okay since the closure is an adorable bow shape!
For this EOTD, I started off with a thin layer of UDPP. The top middle ivory shade was on the inner third of the eye and to highlight, the grey-blue shade is on the lid and the black shade is in the outer V. The coral shade is blended in and above the crease and the taupe shade was placed under the outer third of the lower lashline. The look was finished up with Neutrogena Twilight Blue Nourishing Eye Liner and Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara.
