Let Them Eat Cake

Another NYX Love in Paris palette! I adore these! So, merci NYX for making them!

This is the NYX Love in Paris palette in Let Them Eat Cake which features a range of pinks and browns, clearly inspired by Marie Antoinette and her confectionery phrase. Adorable and affordable at $10. Also cruelty-free!

I love the sleek design of these palettes, making them easy to store and stack, and the see-through casing allows you to glance at the shadows quickly. And how I do love the names! This is adorable and I love how they are color coordinated. These shadows all go together, and wear beautifully for hours.
The shades: (from top left to bottom right) A matte chocolate brown, a sparkly burnt orange, a pale dusty pink, a matte cream, a shimmery coral sorbet, sparkly dark chocolate, matte light brown, bubblegum pink, and matte light pink.

I tried to cram all the swatches together. They are nice on the hand but better on the eye. Not the best pigmentation, but impressive for the colors and the price. The palettes also include a double ended sponge brush. Not amazing, but useful on the go.

Let Them Eat Cake is a great warm-toned pink and brown palette to make you feel sugary and sweet. Love it! Very wearable.
Price: 9/10

So what do you think? Let Them Eat Cake? Or not so much?


  1. These look awesome too. I went to Target today and bought 4 more matte lip creams but they only had individual eye shadows ($8) and no sets like this. Come to think of it they didnt have any blushers either:(

  2. Nice review i really want to buy this palette looks so warm and sweet :) but im not from the us im from europe and i need to order it online.


Thanks for taking the time to comment! I appreciate it!
