NYX swatches!!

I know, FINALLY! Sorry but it's alot of colors! 43 to be exact!

DISCLAIMER: First time ever doing swatches so please forgive me and I'm not that good with my sister's camera... So some of the colors may not look their best! Also, I am comparing some colors to MAC colors but only the ones I know of and or own... May not be the best comparision.

Mediterranean: Nice shimmery light light brown

Algae: True green color
Snow cone: Good highlighter
Eutopia: Nice brown/bronzy color

Marrakesh: Has a very dirty brown undertone
Pink Oleander: Orangy pink color - don't think I will be using this color
Slate: Very nice color

Khaki: Not as green as the picture is making it out to be

Ocean frost: Good highlighter

Beanie: Reminds me a light MAC Trax

nice swatches! Nikon are great if you are going to stay with nikon slr,
since all the lens fit with all models of nikons slr.
with canon not all lenses fit with their models. the lenses is what lets you take amazing photos so you really want to invest into the lenses that is why I choose nikon you can upgrade the body and still use all your lenses! But they are both amazing slrs if you are seriously interested sony alpha is great camera too! if you have ritz camera near by you should go test em :)
