Spotted: The Mortal Instruments Parallel Worlds Collection by NYX

Like any good fangirl, I am a total sucker for any kind of movie, television or book tie-in. I am especially weak when it comes to beauty collection since I am a makeup junkie. This weekend I popped over to my local Ulta to see if they had the new NYX Parallel Worlds collection that was inspired by the new The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones film. Lo and behold, there was a whole end cap dedicated to the collection.

The collection retails for $24.99 and comes in a really cool looking box. The official blurb on the collection is as follows:

The NYX Parallel Worlds Box is Dark, Mysterious, and Dangerous. Venture into this new collection inspired by The Mortal Instruments. Everything you need to create an innocent day look inspired by Clary or a sultry night look inspired by Isabel.
Includes:
  • NYX Smoky Palette
  • NYX Blush in Pinched
  • NYX Matte Lip Cream in Instanbul
  • NYX Black Liquid Liner Extreme Black
  • NYX Jumbo Pencil in Cashmere
  • NYX Boudoir Collection Mascara in Le Frou Frou
Get ready for a bunch of pictures!

Sorry, somehow I did not notice that the Jumbo Eye Pencil was missing and a rogue eyebrow pencil was in its place. You can see the eye pencil that is supposed to be included here.

I swatched the eye shadows on my hand and they are pretty nice. I like NYX in general so I think this is a really fun little set that has some cool products and has a great tie-in. You can buy the products separately (I think they are all part of the regular NYX collection) but then you wouldn't get the nifty box. $24.99 isn't bad for a set this size and, if you have an Ulta coupon, it's even cheaper.

I think most Ulta stores should have this collection in by now. If not you can always purchase it on the Ulta site. I am thinking of buying a set for a blog giveaway, if people are interested.

The Mortal Instruments hits theaters in August 23, 2013.
