NYX Parallel World Box Smoky Eye Look

One of the best deals I got recently came from my impulse purchase of the NYX Parallel World Box. This limited edition box has products to create looks inspired by The Mortal Instruments. It includes instructions to create an innocent day look inspired by Clary or a smoky eye night look inspired by Isabel. Right now it is on sale for $18.74 (normally $24.99).

The box includes a Smokey Eye Palette with six shades, blush, lip cream, liquid liner, a gold eye crayon, and mascara. Quite the value for the price! It also is a great way to try out some NYX cosmetics if you have not previously done so.

While I sometimes have taken issue with the amount of pigment in NYX eye shadow, I had no complaints about this set. All of the shadows had good pigment and wear time. Below are swatches from the palette.

The lip cream was a huge surprise to me. I had not yet used NYX Lip Creams, but have seen rave reviews of them. The pigment on this is awesome. The product wears like that thicker lip tint with opaque coverage. In a blind test, I would have thought is was an expensive product, but the NYX lip creams are $5.99.  Below is a swatch of the matte pink lip cream from the Paralell Worlds Box.

The set comes with instructions for two looks. I did a look using one of them, making a lightly smoky eye for a beer cruise on Green Lake Wisconsin.

Overall, I highly recommend this box. The colors are very wearable and the price simply can’t be beat. It is a wonderful value!

  1. Pretty! I haven’t tried a NYX palette in awhile. This one is has some nice smoky shades in it.

  2. I don’t have Ulta near me but I’ll check out the website. Like Leticia, NYX palette has been off my radar for quite a while now.

  3. One of the rare cosmetic companies that is still cruelty free. That is all I buy. Can’t stand the thought of torturing animals for people to look pretty…makes no sense. So email them and thank them, if they start selling to china it will change but last i checked they still do NO animal testing.
