I'm back with another NYX review! I bought this palette a couple of months ago I'd say. I kept meaning to review it and today I finally got my act together! I have really been enjoying this palette alot--though not the most pigmented--for every day, neutral looks for work.
Take a peek at the inside:
So as you can see, really pretty every day colors! They are a bit soft, so watch out for fallout. They are really smooth though and easy to blend. I haven't really used the white or black, so swatching them last night was the first time I dipped into those. Cue the swatches...
My skin is really white, so they don't show up as well here. If your on a laptop though, tilt your screen back for a better view!! Sorry guys! So you can see there are mostly shimmer colors in here, with a few satin colors. But these are not overly shimmery, if you know what I mean. I don't want to look like a disco ball at work and all of the colors in here would work for me.
As you can tell I'm sure, the black (#10) is probably the worst color in this palette, with white (#6) being behind that. They are both not very pigmented, a little chalky, and were not easily blended on my skin. What went wrong there?? NYX's single shadow in Black is supposed to be a MAC Dupe for Carbon, so you might want to pick that one up instead. I don't use black too much, except to set liners, so it's not a big deal for me. Here's a few looks I've done with this palette:
This is a really light application for a really natural, but put together, look I did for work.
Another day where I took it a little bit darker. You really can make these more intense, I just chose not too! I'll have to do a dramatic look for you guys another time to show you.
Do you have any of the NYX palettes? Do you prefer the quality of the single shadows better? I want to hear your thoughts! Don't be shy! I <3 reading your comments!
Mary Kay give-a-way soon!
