The Crimson Amulet Collection review

While ago I got the Nyx Crimson Amulet Collection inspired by the Dark Shadows -movie. 

Now, lets start with the packaging. I think it's just great. I love the fun gothic vibe it gives. It is so much different from the other palettes that I got. It is like having a little book full of yummy shades. The packaging in itself is so inspiring and really makes you want to experiment with the shades and create different styles. Also it is easy to travel with. It comes with a little mirror and applicators. 

The Collection includes 24 eyeshadow shades, a mirror, hd eyeshadow base, eyeliner, five different shades of blush, higlighter shade and four different shades of lipstick.

The eyeshadows vary from really shimmering shades to matte ones. There is a range of light and gothic dark shades. Unfortunately some of the shades are not very pigmented and might cause a minor disappointment. However I have been using this palette for weeks now to create day and evening looks and  have been able to create some really fun looks. One could say that the top section of the shades are more for evening looks since they are much more intensive colors and the bottom section could be more daytime shades.

I absolutely love the blushes. The blushes in this collection are very pigmented and really good quality. Also the highlighter color is just so much fun to use. I add it on my cheek bones chin and nose to create little bit of shine and glamour.

Also I am positively surprised about the quality of the lipsticks. They are really long lasting and feel light on your lips. I hate sticky lipsticks but these ones are just great. Although they are slightly impractical since none really wants to carry this palette around so that you could touch up on your lipstick.

Another positive surprise was the shadow base and the eyeliner. I am going to even state that the shadow base can easily match up to the Urban Decay Primer Potion. It is a really worthy competitor and much cheaper option to UD. The eyeliner as well is really good quality. Very easy to use and does not spread all over your lids during the day.

In overall I would say this is a good purchase. It has all the essentials that you need in order to create an awesome look. Me likey :)
