My Experience with NYX Love in Paris Eye Shadow Palette – Love Affair with Louis:

NYX Love in Paris Eye Shadow Palette – Love Affair with Louis predominantly has various shades of blue. They also have the basic white, silver and black shades. A number of various combinations including smokey eyes can be made from these colors.



  1. Looks like silver, but actually it is an extremely light blue with green undertones.
  2. A sky blue color with silver undertones.
  3. A denim blue color. It looks very similar to those light denims we generally have.

The pigmentation is very good and these three do have minute silver shimmer particles, but they are not prominently visible once applied.



  1. Actually a white color with shimmer particles. Works really good as a highlighter.
  2. Looks more like a greenish blue. We can also call it as sea green.
  3. A pretty shimmery cobalt blue.

These three also have amazing pigmentation. Just one swipe is enough to get complete color. Also, the shimmer particles are not very obvious.


  1. A perfect shimmery silver.
  2. Dark blue.
  3. Black.

As you can see from the swatches, these shades are highly pigmented. The dark blue color does have shimmer, but when applied, it gives more of a matte look and does not shine. Also, the black shade is not jet black. It seems to have shimmer, but gives a matte effect when applied.


All the shadows have a soft texture. They can be easily applied and give a smooth finishing. These do blend in easily. They are not at all chalky. Also, these are not waterproof. The staying power is okay and lasts for around 4 hours after which it fades away. I wish the pigmentation was better. The applicator provided seems to be of no use to me. Although it has smooth ends, I personally feel a lot of color remains on the applicator and that gets wasted, I prefer applying with fingers.

These do not crease, but few of them do so on oily lids, so it is better to use an oil absorbent base to be safe. The palette has colors which can be used on their own or in combinations and also as a highlighter. All in all, it is a good palette.
