An eye-shadow vault (an extensive collection of the best shades) can run upwards of $300, but let’s face it, not everyone is comfortable spending a chunk of their month’s rent on makeup. So for the girls who love variety—but love a robust account balance more—NYX Cosmetics launched a 12-piece limited-edition vault for only $25. The NYX <3’s LA set of pigmented shadows ranges from bright blue to shimmery gunmetal, cleverly inspired by the city’s best-known destinations, from the Valley to Malibu. While Los Angeles may hold a special place in the company’s heart (it’s based in the City of Angels, after all), we predict this to be the first of many metropolis-themed collections—New York, Miami and Paris are our first-round picks.
