Going all out - going PINK

Payday has just past and I - obviously - had to spend some money. The last few months I have been looking for a light pink eye shadow but haven't found one that I really like, i've found a few perfect shades in palettes but there's no point of buying a whole palette just for one colour. After a little web-search on FeelUnique, Boots and Superdrug I found a few good candidates, but buying make-up online is risky business as I like to swatch my make-up before buying, so I noted down my favourites and headed to Boots the next day to see if they had any of them in store. And they did. I ended up getting 2x Maybelline Color Tattoo's as it was buy 2 get one 1/2 price, eyebrow gel, my fave mascara (seriously the best one out there) and eye shadow from Max Faxtor as it was buy 3 get 1 free, I needed a new mascara anyway so it was perfect timing. And I bought my first two NYX products, pink eye shadow and a eye shadow pencil.

First impression: After the fist use of the Masterpiece eye shadow I am a little bit disappointed, I have the same one - just in 03 Coffee and love it - but the pink one is not as pigmented as I expected compared to the other shade I have. The colour is definitely closer to what I was looking for but even though the pigmentation is not as good it's all alright as I got the NYX shadow to go on top of it anyway. The NYX shadow stick I returned the next day as I figured I don't really need that many pink eye shadows and the thought of dragging a half dry pencil over my eyes, no, not too keen. After one use the pink Color Tattoo is definitely my favourite, it's a little bit darker than I originally was looking for but the pigment and colour looks amazing on! Unfortunately I didn't snap any photos of the eye shadows on as I was rushing to get ready for work both days, but pictures and an updated review will be up a little bit later when i've given the eye shadows a good go!
