☢ NYX Eyeshadow Palette SWATCHES & REVIEW ☢

I had tried the Urban Decay NAKED Palettes 1 & 2 and I must say I like them alot!
But then again price wise... they are somewhat expensive.
I heard NYX had their own eyeshadow palette and I decided to buy one. I usually LOVE
colorful eyeshadow, but now... I'm going for the more mature & neutral look.

The NYX 10 Color Eyeshadow Palette "The Runway Collection" comes in
16 different variations.

I bought the Caviar & Bubbles palette. The name is so cute!
NYX says "Expect rich, lasting pigments and glamour." for these palettes, but we'll see!

Picture from the site. Unlike other brands, the individual eyeshadows don't have a "name".
Which I don't really mind, but it would have been nice especially if I were to do tutorials.

Comes with the double-ended sponge applicators.
I personally like them more than brushes :)
Old Skool I know!

It's actually somewhat compact! It's shorter than the NAKED palettes
and it's better for on the go!
Packaging is simply just black, sleek, thin, & has a mirror.
Not as colorful or attractive as the NAKED palette but I like it's look. More mature.

I love all the colors! In the NAKED Palette it has dark purple shades,
but personally, I never used the purple... so I like this palette more.


Color: ❀❀❀❀❀/5 I love how pigmented each shade are.
5 shades are shimmer, 5 are matte
Great for the everyday natural/neutral look

Application: ❀❀❀❀❀/5 Easy to put on, brushes pick up the shadows well & sponge
applicators are best (for all pressed shadows)

Packaging/Size: ❀❀❀❀❀/5
Simple, sleek, and compact. Fits in my small makeup bag & in the small
zip up pouches in my purse

Lasting Power: ❀❀❀❀❀/5
I wear it with eye shadow primer so it always stays put, even on my bottom lash line.

Texture: ❀❀❀❀❀/5
Very soft and smooth. Goes on eyelids so well. Easy to blend.

All in all ❀❀❀❀❀/5
I always have this in my purse, so that wherever I go I can do my makeup.
It even fits in my pockets :)
My go to natural eye makeup palette!

Thanks 4 Reading! See ya next time! *:・゚✧
