NYX Box of Eyeshadows Review/swatches/reasons to love it!
Oh boy, I got this out yesterday and I seriously played with it for a while! I hadn't used this palette much, and I felt kind of bad for it. With all of the other new makeup stuffs, I kind of put this one on the back burner...BUT today I was reminded of why I purchased it in the first place. :)I bought this palette when I was looking for something neutral and at the same time something that could be loud and bold.

I use this and Kryolan's Aquacolor in white to achieve the truest to color of my eyeshadows that I can possibly get) I did not swatch every color. That would have taken me a while, so I swatched a variety of shades to give
