testing my NYX chrome eyeshadows....

as much as i love pressed eyeshadows, my heart still longs for loose pigments! i've started wearing eyeshadows when i got introduced to loose mineral eyeshadows. and i can say that until now, i would prefer using them than my pressed ones.

i would love to own MAC pigments, but the price has been stopping me to get them. i have their set of antiquitease pigments but that's about it. i have lots of mineral e/s but of course, i'd love to try out other brands. good thing, there's a good alternative...NYX chrome eyeshadows! :)

they are like mineral pigments where you would need to have a sticky base so they won't fall off. also, it's recommended to apply them in a patting motion instead of swiping. honestly, i had a hard time applying and blending because the glitters keep on falling off. and i swear i am patting them on! LOL

anyway, here's my attempt:

i know...i know...i sucked! can you give me another chance to make things right? :)

and me, working hard...
