To start off 2013, NYX has launched some lovely new eye shadow palettes... 12 to be exact, under Love in Paris. Of these 12 I have a rather neutral one to share with you entitled Je Ne Sais Quoi.
What the NYX website says about the Love in Paris Eye Shadow Palette:
Fall in Love in Paris with our brilliant 9 color palette that complements all eye colors and fashion ensembles. Use this adorable travel friendly kit with the included applicator through every voyage and adventure for creating captivating looks and touch ups. Attract the Love in Paris with your eyes! Available in 12 color selections.
Je Ne Sais Quoi is loaded up with an assortment of neutral browns, cream, silver and plum... letting you transform your look easily from every-day to only-at-night. For the most part, seven of the nine shades have a nice texture, applying easily and blending well. My only complaints would be the black shade is a little chalky and the icy white on the bottom left it slightly patchy, but works great for that inner corner pop.
As for the packaging the black palette is sleek with a window on top so you can check out the color. 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. I applied the middle tan shade all over the lid and put the top middle dark grey-brown shade at the outer V. The middle left medium brown shade is in the crease and blended up with the top left white-gold shade used to blend out the crease color more and to highlight. The middle right white shade was used at the inner corners. The eye liner is Pixi Copper Glow Endless Silky Eye Pen and Pixi Extra Eye Bright Liner on the lower waterline. The mascara is MAC Plushlash.
