'Mortal Instruments: City of Bones' will be hitting the theaters on August 21. NYX Cosmetics has launched an exciting collection inspired by the upcoming movie which was based upon the fantasy novel by Cassandra Clare. The Mortal Instruments box set 'Parallel Worlds' features a makeup collection that can be used to create a day look inspired by the character Clary or a night look inspired by Isabel.
Inside the Mortal Instruments 'Parallel Worlds' box set is a luxurious soft matte lip cream in the color 'Istanbul.' This color is a soft pink that will match either look. The tube looks and applies like a lipgloss but the actual color looks like a lipstick. The lip cream has a matte finish and the color is beautiful. Also included in the box is a powder blush in the color 'Pinched.' This blush is a vibrant pink color that leaves the cheeks looking rosy. Like the pink lip cream this color looks great on all skin types.
The next part of the Mortal Instruments 'Parallel Worlds' box set from NYX Cosmetics is eye makeup. The set also includes a vibrant liquid eyeliner in 'Extreme Black.' The eyeliner is perfect to line the eyelid and has a very bold finish. The collection also includes mascara from the NYX Boudoir line in a black called 'Le Frou Frou.' A jumbo eye pencil in the color 'Cashmere' is also included. The jumbo eye pencil is a soft gold-like color that is easily applied as an eyeshadow. For a more dramatic look this kit also includes a wonderful Smokey Shadow Palette. The Smokey Shadow Palette features six colors including gray, purple and blue that can be used to create a variety of different smokey eye combinations.
The NYX Cosmetics collection inspired by Mortal Bones is available through Ulta, The Parallel Worlds set retails for $24.99. This is an excellent collection that is very versatile and can be used to create a variety of looks.
