Nyx, Mad minerals and Stila haul

two packages arrived today! and i'm uber-happy! it contains nyx 10 palettes for your eyes only in mysterious brown, mad minerals cream eyeshadow in nude frost, and stila sun spf 15 bronzing powder #2.

i believe all of these will become staples in my make up routine. here's why:
1. nyx 10 palettes for your eyes only in mysterious brown. this palette contain 10 subtle colors that compliment each other. all of them are pigmented and buildable without being chalky. however, i found their darkest one somehow less pigmented than the lighter one. i love most of the colors. my favorite is, of course, the green one. i try it on my lid, and the color pop without being over the top. loooveee it! i also love the violet and lilac one. it's subtle yet showed, though i haven't try it on my lid but i guess it will be great.

2. mad minerals cream eyeshadow in nude frost. the color is sooo nice for my skin tone. i used it for base and highlighter. well, as a base, it doesn't really do anything for your eyeshadow unless to make it stay longer. i mean, it doesn't make your shadow color more vibrant or else. but the texture is great. it's not sticky or creased because it turned powdery as soon as you apply it. and nude frost is the great yellowish nude color with shimmer. for me, this is highlighter i've been longing for so long!

3. stila sun spf 15 bronzing powder #2. this is my first bronzer ever. before this, i was such a bronzer virgin. getting a bronzer means i step forward to the next level of beauty school world. hahaha.with my non-existent experience, i guess i can't make a good judge of how this bronzer works. but with newbie eyes, i can tell you one thing or two about this bronzer. it's a very-subtle-almost-matte bronzer, though if you look more closely you can see a bit shimmer in it. it's like medium-dark powder in pan, but apparently it's not dark on my NC40 skin. yes, it has orangey-tinge, but i found it okay. i just used it slightly on my cheek to look how it turn out on my skin, and so far i like it. will inform the development later, i need more practice in this department! haha.
