It’s Saturday morning and it’s raining outside. I wanted to share this post with you. Yesterday, as I stepped out from my house, there were autumn leaves everywhere on the ground. The color of golden and amber leaves baking under the soft bright sun. I felt inspired to do a review on this lovely “I dream of St Lucia” eyeshadow palette by NYX. I saw three colors of fall from this palette and I quicky started to use them for my autumn makeup look. I posted my beauty haul yesterday and feel free to check it out.
NYX brand is available at Target and also at some local Canadian drugstores. I picked up mine at a drugstore.

“I Dream of St Lucia” 5 color eyeshadow palette
These are the color swatch from the palette. Such gorgeous pigmented eyeshadows. I really love the orange one best out of the other 4. So, that is why I’m doing the amber eye look. The formula is soft and smooth and it blends so well. I noticed that the pink and yellow ones need more blending since the shades are a little bit lighter. Otherwise, the colors are all gorgeous and wearable.
For this amber eyemakeup look, I just apply the eye primer and then I go ahead to blend the orange color shadow and the yellow as highlighter. I love the consistency of these shadows.
I used the Prestige eyeliner in Granite color to outline just top of my lids. I also dap a bit of the yellow eyeshadow to the centre of my eye lids (shown on the left) to make my eyes look more popped.
I’m impressed that for such an easy and simple steps, this color palette can gives such beautiful and vibrant color to the eyes. I will be playing more with these amazing colors since all 5 colors seems to work well together.
I have several eyeshadow palettes and this is one of my go-to palette of all time. The value can’t be beat. Well, the packaging is simple and it’s hand travel friendly. I’m very happy with my purchased and I will definitely go to pick up one more as backups. I do want to try the “I Dream of St Marteen” in a more neutral shades for everyday look.
