NYX Cosmetics is well-known for their very affordable price and quality. When Non-PareilBoutique has 20% off storewide, I craved in and ordered the NYX new eyeshadow palette. There are two new collections for the NYX 10 Color Eyeshadow Palette: The Runway Collection and For your eyes only. Mine is the NYX The Runway Collection in Jazz Night.
The classic packaging:
Here's the ingredients list:The eyeshadow palette comes with a big mirror and a small eyeshadow sponge. The mirror is huge for you to see your whole face not just your eyes. I found that the sponge is a dump as it is very rough. Here are the swatches:
I'm very disappointed with this pallet. The color in the palette look very pigmented but not on my hand. The color consistency is quite different for each color. I found out that only 5 colors in the palette are quite pigmented and soft especially the blue. While the other colors was too blah and the texture is too rough. I personally tried the silver color (top) for smoky eyes, but the texture was too rough and the color fly-off everywhere on my lids which is too messy. Eww~~
Here's my EOTD:
(I only use the 3 colors)
The colors turn out great but it crease easily even with eyelid primer. It only lasted me about 3hours before it start to crease.
I'm very disappointed. The palette is great when traveling if you can only take a small amount of makeup with you. But I'm definitely would not repurchase this palette. The single eyeshadow and trio palette works far better than this.
I heard NYX 10 Color for Smokey Eyes is far better than this. Shall give it a try soon. How's your experience with NYX eyeshadow?
