Top Notch Brown Black: Makeup Look

Reviewing the NYX Hot Single Eyeshadows ($4.50) has been on my blog agenda for a long time. I own several now (probably about 10 or more) so it's a post that requires time and patience. I only have so many fingers for swatching. I recall purchasing a pack of disposable sponge tip applicators once in order to aid the making of those swatch-heavy posts. I ended up running out of applicators too quickly since they are basically one-use products. Back to fingers it is. In the meantime, you'll see NYX Hot Single Eyeshadows popping up in makeup looks here and there.

Oh, and I've gotten this question a few times: Are they really NYX eyeshadows? Yep. Most people are used to the square singles with the diamond embossing. The Hot Singles were released this year (2014) and look nearly identical to MAC Eyeshadows once you depot them. (That's a huge plus for me because those pyramid embossed squares were messing up my custom eyeshadow palette's aesthetic.)

To create this look I used a mixture of cool and warm toned colors. They were fairly dark so the eye makeup turned out very evening/nighttime smokey. I used Top Notch all over the lid, Chandelier on the inner corners, Mystery and Nehru on the crease, and finally Nehru smudged on the top lash line. On the lips I'm wearing Too Faced Naughty Nude La Creme Lipstick and on the cheeks I have the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Blissful

Have you tried the NYX Hot Single Eyeshadows?

  11. Really love this look, I might give it a try with similar shades I already own. What's the difference between Nehru and carbon?

    1. Nehru has a better formula, creamier and more pigmented, but it's more of an off black rather than a true black. x
