MEMEBOX + Nylon Sweet 16 Eye & Face Palette
Nylon is celebrating it's sweet 16th birthday with a special gift for Memeboxers - the #ItGirlPalette, a mix of bold colors for the eyes and face. If you're not up on the subscription box phenomenon, or have never heard of Memebox, you are in for a fun treat! Memebox offers a variety of Korean cosmetics in specially curated boxes that you can purchase on a need-t0-have basis instead of monthly. If you like to try new things, you've go to give Memebox a shot!
Full disclosure, Memebox sends me products now and then for the sake of review, but since long before they ever sent me anything, I've been a big fan. Korean cosmetics are where it's at. This Nylon palette is no exception. I love how Memebox describes it.... "This palette is a must-have for all gals that are edgy, trend-setting, and f***ing awesome."
The colors in this palette are shimmering and autumnal, and I think just about anyone could make a look they feel comfortable with (natural or bold) using the #ItGirlPalette. The two larger shades on each side are for the face, a highlighter named "The Moment" and a hot hot hot mega-pigmented pink blush called "Sweet 16".
All the shadows are named after some of Nylon's most iconic cover models. The top row of eyeshadows, L to R are named Lilo (a matte white), Mary-Kate (shimmering olive green), and Mischa (a shimmering rust red). The bottom three, L to R are Lana (bronze shimmer), Paris (rosy gold shimmer), and Nicole (dark brown with blue shimmer). All of these shadows are easy to work with and really soft. I don't think they're quite as great as the colors in the SoothingSista palette, but they aren't bad in the least.
Above are swatches of each shade, not over any sort of primer, which would make them pop even more. From L to R: The Moment, Lilo, Mary-Kate, Mischa, Lana, Paris, Nicole, Sweet 16.
Overall, this is a really fun palette. I think this is an especially great palette for girls with green eyes as all of these colors are going to make green eyes pop! This palette can be purchased at Memebox.com for $29. Even if you're not going to purchase, click the link and see some fun ways to rock bold colors like these!
