Review: NYX Love in Paris Eyeshadow Palette in "Merci Beaucoup"

NYX Love in Paris collection
Thanks to Blanc to Noir, I was given the opportunity to review several NYX items of my choice to review, so today I'll be showing you the NYX Love in Paris eyeshadow palette in "Merci Beaucoup". 'Merci beaucoup' means 'thank you very much' in French. ( 。◕‿◕。)

NYX Love in Paris palette - Merci Beaucoup

The NYX Love in Paris eyeshadow palettes are housed in a shiny black plastic flip case with a large clear window in front, which makes it easy to see which shades are inside. It is fairly light but sturdy, and the lid closes firmly so it won't accidentally open. However, I highly recommend you try not to drop it on the floor. (⌒_⌒;)

Small safety seal at the side
The first time I tried to open the palette, I was surprised when it wouldn't open. Then I realized that there was a black NYX safety seal sticker at the side, which was cleverly camouflaged with the black plastic casing. I love this little feature, as it assures you that the product is brand new and not tampered with.

Love the pretty bow detail <3
What I love about the NYX Love in Paris palettes is the cute little bow detail at the snap closure part. Isn't it adorable?! (✿♥‿♥)


I've reviewed NYX's lipstick before, but have never tried any of their eye makeup products before, so I decided to pick a neutral palette as they'd be more practical for everyday use. I chose the NYX Love in Paris palette in "Merci Beaucoup" because it contains a good mix of nude, brown and pink shades for mixing and matching, suitable for day to night looks. :) It comes with a double-ended sponge applicator.

Here's a closer look at the 9 shades of the "Merci Beaucoup" palette:

And here are the swatches of the eyeshadows:
Top row
Shimmery champagne
Shimmery brown
Shimmery pink nude

Middle row
Matte brown
Shimmery dark brown
Shimmery salmon pink

Bottom row
Matte brown-black
Matte cream
Shimmery brick red

The colours are generally very pigmented (except for the three matte shades) and glide on very smoothly without any fallout. My favourites are the brown in the top row and the shimmery dark brown and pink in the middle row. The shimmery red in the bottom row is also very pretty, but the colour doesn't really suit my skintone for some reason. (; ̄д ̄)

Simple neutral eye makeup
Here's a quick and simple look I did for a lunch date with my BFF yesterday. :) Pictures above are about 8 hours after, and the colours still look quite fresh with minimal fading. Quite amazing, really, because I didn't apply any primer underneath. ∑(O_O;)

If you're looking for a versatile yet affordable eyeshadow palette with a variety of colours and good colour payoff, I cannot recommend the NYX Love in Paris collection enough. There are several different palettes to choose from, each with 9 coordinated shades that compliment each other. The palette is small and light, great for traveling, and comes in cute and user-friendly packaging. (*^▽^*)

You can purchase the NYX Love in Paris palettes from B2N, along with lots of other NYX products.

I really like brown, natural, organic colors, so this is great.

First time dropping by here, by the way. :)

Nicole: Thank you! ^^ Hmm, I'm not sure if this palette is available here though, since it's been a while since I visited Sephora and taken a look at the NYX display. >_<

AngelKein: Thank you for dropping by! ^^ Yup, the colours are really easy to mix and match. :)

Looks pretty pigmented!

Yuh Jiun said...

So pretty! Love the colour :D

LauraLeia said...

Cindy: Did you see it before in Sephora here? I've not been there for a while, haha~

Angie: Yup, just need eyeliner (and i seldom use mascara lol) and eye makeup is done! The matte shades aren't that pigmented though, the shimmery ones are much better in terms of texture and pigment.

Isabel: They are! Except for the matte shades, but that's to be expected I guess. ^^;;

Yuh Jiun: Indeed it is! :D very handy for eyeshadow noobs like me lol
