I also received my NYX The Crimson Amulet Collection Inspired by Dark Shadows makeup kit for free in my Sept GlossyBox. I must admit that I have never seen the show, or movie. All I even knew about it was what I’ve heard from people talking about it witch wasn’t much. So I wasn’t sure what I was going to find when I open the case. To my surprise the case was filled with twenty-four matte and shimmery eye shadows with four two sided eye shadow applicators on the inside cover and on the next page I guess you call it is a 2 ½ inch by 4 inch mirror. On the next page there are five blushers, one luminous highlighter, four lip colors, one HD Studio eye shadow base and one extreme black liquid eye liner. I’ve only used a few things out of it, but so far so good. The eye shadow that I have tried goes on very nice and stays put. I always use a black liner whether it’s a pencil, or a liquid liner and I found this liquid liner to be pretty nice. As for the lip colors, I wasn’t too thrilled with the colors and I agree with Bren, they do feel too sticky on. The rest of the products I haven’t tried, but the blushers don’t look like colors I’d care for. I’ve seen this makeup kit sell for any where from $9.99 to $25 depending on witch web site you go to that’s selling it, but I wouldn’t pay any more then the $9.99 for it. I think the NYX The Crimson Amulet Collection Inspired by Dark Shadow makeup kit would make a nice Christmas gift for and young girl just starting to use makeup, or for any woman that enjoys makeup.
I received this makeup collection in my September Glossybox what a surprise and a treat to receive this.It is inspired by the movie Dark Shadows I gotta say I'm a big fan of the older Dark Shadows tv series so this what such a fun kit to get.There is also pictures of three of the main woman characters and there style profiles.
This palette contains twenty four eye shadows both glitter and matte, four blushes, one bronzer, one illuminator, one eye shadow base, and one liquid eyeliner and four lip glosses.The eye shadows are pigmented and really pretty and with twenty four to choose from you cant go wrong!The blushes are very soft and pretty.The eye shadow base is very light and fair.
The eyeliner is jet black and very smooth.The illuminator is perfect for fair skin.The bronzer is more of a orange color not much of a typical bronzer.The lip glosses are a little to sticky for my liking and are the least favorite in this kit.Overall its a great palette and I had no problems with breakouts or being allergic to it as I have sensitive skin.A really cute collectors item.
