I’m a true makeup geek, this is why I was utterly happy to get my hands on these 2 multitasking palettes by NYX which are called AWAY WE GLOW ILLUMINATING POWDER! The palettes turned out to be not only beautiful on the outside, but also really versatile and handy!
So, here is my precious - one palette is more brown-toned - 02 "Shimmer Thrill", and the other is more peachy-pink, - 05 "Sunset BLVD"!
The design of the compact is sleek, quality and pleasant to look at! The compact is black and square with a transparent top lid.
It easily opens and closes with a sounding click. Each compact houses 4 shades which are triangle-shaped. All in all, they all form a beautiful square. :)
Let’s have a closer look at the first palette in the color 02 "Shimmer Thrill". The product offers 2 textures - two shades are matte and 2 shades are shimmer.
The matte shades are nearly brown-toned and they have a true red undertone. The other two shades from the palette are golden and faint yellow highlighters.
The powders are well-pressed, yet they can be easily applied on my fingertip as well as on the brush. The pigmentation is superb, the grain is good and the color payoff is always fantastic!
These palettes are real multi-taskers, so why not come with a full face using only these babes? So, for the pictures for this review I used this palette for my eye makeup as well. I also used it as a highlighter and a blush when I mixed the three shades together. And here’s the result!
Have a look at it yourself!
Let’s pass over to the second palette, which is called 05 "Sunset BLVD".
I adore this cool-toned pink pearl shade, which I actually used here as an eyeshadow and a blush. There are also 2 shimmer contrast highlighter shades and one peachy matte hue.
The quality of the products is killer! The pigmentation is fab, the grain is small and the color payoff is amazing.
The product is really versatile as I can use one palette for my eyes and face makeup! Since I’m currently in love with all the pink-toned colors, I can assure you that I use this palette a lot! I also can mix the three shades from the square and apply them as a blush over my cheeks. I also appreciate the fair highlighter here, as it’s fine for face accents.
And now I want to express my final opinion of both of these palettes:
they offer stunning pigmentation and color payoff
they are really versatile and I can easily come up with eye and face makeup, using only these babes
the grain is super small
the staying power is fantastic! I can see the products on my face the whole day, though it’s rather cold outside now and I can’t predict how well they’ll perform in the heat.
Buying one palette, you can get several shades at once. You can also use the shades separately or create a unique mixture
I’m really happy with these multi-tasking palettes by NYX AWAY WE GLOW ILLUMINATION POWDER! Both of the palettes - cool-toned and warm-toned look good in my makeup and perform well on my skin!
I hope that my review was interesting for you❤
