I get a big kick out of this palette.
It’s that name, Sex Bomb. I dunno…it just makes me laugh! I mean, I get that they were trying to channel inner seductiveness and sultriness, but of course I’m going to picture weird bombs of sexiness raining from the sky (of course).
Pouty lips, BOOM! Bedroom eyes, BAM!
Or I think of a bad roll in the hay, LOL! And then consequently sneaking out the door at an ungodly hour for that early morning walk of shame with smeared eye makeup and kitten breath.
Aw, what a disappointing sex bomb!
Oh, and then there’s the awkwardness of trying to explain the name to my mom…
Mom: “WHAT IS THIS SEX BOMB?”
Forgetting the name for a second, though, I think the colors are also cool. Very interesting, like that red on the far left. It looks rather frightening, doesn’t it? Well, it’s really not that scary at all. If you pop it on your lids very close to the lash line and do a black cat liner, I think it looks super cool.
And that black shadow on the far right does WERK! I like it smoked out along the lash lines with the taupe in the lid and the beige on the brow bone.
How very Angelina Jolie. Just add nude lips.
Anywho! It’s available now for $7.50 at NYX counters, Ulta and nyxcosmetics.com.
