I have always heard how great NYX shadows are and I've been wanting to try these for so long. My local Ulta doesn't have a wide selection for these, so I finally popped my Cherry Culture cherry and made my first order! I used Temptalia's infamous Dupe List to help me make my selections! I got some MAC Dupes!!

Here's my selection!

From left to right:
Frosted Flakes, Rust, True Taupe, Brown

Frosted Flakes is supposed to be like Shroom--which I have wanted forever!!
Rust is supposed to be like Cranberry.
True Taupe isn't a dupe, I just love it!
Brown is supposed to be like Cork.


These swatches don't even show how pretty they are. I'm not too sure about the Brown (Cork dupe) yet, as I have not used it on my lids yet. Swatch looks kinda yucky, but I will update you after I use it. The colors look most like the picture with flash, with the exception of Rust. It looks orange in that picture. The one without flash looks like Rust.

Here's my first look with these. I used Frosted Flakes as a highlight, True Taupe on my lids, and Rust in my crease.

Hope you enjoyed this review! Please tell me your favorite NYX single shadows!

Mary Kay give-a-way coming soon!!

Rust looks so pretty with your blue eyes! It's actually one of my favourite NYX shadows, and I personally think it's prettier than Cranberry :D

I also really like Frosted Ocean, and the Champagne & Caviar palette.

NYX singles are SO fun! I love Luxor. It's a dupe for MAC Stars and Rockets and it's SO awesome.
