Cucumbers and Cashmere- New colours in NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils


Cucumbers and cashmere! Sounds fun right? These are two newer shades in the Nyx jumbo eye pencil line. Does it matter that I never got the popular shades Milk or Blackbean?
Anyway I am drawn to colour and these two new additions to my stash are welcomed since I love greens and didn’t have any green base to go with my gorgeous MAC Lucky Green, and well the Cashmere looks like a nice neutral base colour as well as a close to nude shade I was looking for to open up the eyes a bit. 
Cucumber is a beautiful bright green with no shimmer, just flat colour. It does look a bit sheer on application when used as a base, I was really looking for that green punch of colour at once. But if you use it for lining the colour shows up more intense.
Cashmere on the other hand is a shimmery nude champagne colour. It is just as creamy and works beautifully as a base just as cucumber.
I do find I get a bit of creasing on using these JEP’s alone for colour so I usually have to just use them as bases instead with a powder eyeshadow on top. Cucumber is my favourite of these two. Stay tuned for a new look using these beautiful new jumbo eye pencils. I’m running away now to find the other new shades, cobalt and peacock!
Happy Cucumbers!
XOXO

Nail Challenge Day 10: Blue Black Gradient Nails

Just when I thought my Rainbow nails were my favourite so far in the challenge, along came the gradient nails and replaced my love in an instant. I couldn't believe how stunning the combination of black and blue would look together. It's a truly simple design that is very popular with the DIY nail polish crowd.
