How to “foil” eyeshadow + MAC vs NYX

Is this MAC or NYX?

NYX VS MAC Nyx Side

This is the NYX Side!

Hey Guys and Dolls! So, I was going to make my “Mermaid To Order” video this weekend, but SO many of you requested that I do a video showing how to use the pearl mania’s and glitter mania’s that I thought I do this one first.  Also, there seems to be a plethora of mermaid videos, & little to interest in the one I talked about, AND my heart is set on other things so I may put it off indefinitely.

So, as you can see, the NYX side IS a bit more sparkly, but it’s basically the same look!


Here’s a list of what I used to create the NYX Look

Both Sides:

  1. Hello, I always wondered if there was difference between MAC and other “cheaper” products. I see there is not!!!! Thanks I appreciate it.

  2. Be aware. NYX products are made in China. With the issues of health hazards with products manufactured in China, I’d spring the extra $$$ to be safe.

  3. To Amy:
    Most products are made in China, so if you’re paranoid about that then good luck! But seriously, NYX products are pretty good and not just because they are cheaper but those of you who like MAC will probably like NYX as well.
