REVIEW | NYX EYE SHADOW PALETTES

NYX is a High-Street brand that has some amazing products with great quality and you don't have to spend a fortune on them as well, which is always good. I have been adding a few eye shadow palettes into my collection and some of my favourite are from NYX. I have with me the Amazonian Babes a 3 colour eye shadow palette and two 9 colour eye shadow palettes called Parisian Chic and A La Mode. If you live in Hong Kong you can buy them from the NYX HK store.

WITH THE FLASH

As you can see from the pictures the eye shadows in the Amazonian Babes palettes are quite well pigmented and since I am a bit darker in skin colour, the light brown is not as visible if you are a bit more fair skin toned. The eye shadows are very powdery and has a matte finish even though it has a slight sparkle to them. The texture of the eye shadows feel like satin and are super soft and creamy. They aren't really shimmer eye shadows but I would say that they look really nice even in the day and night.

The A La Mode is a 9 colour eye shadow palette and all the eye shadows are perfect for creating the perfect smokey eyes and dark eyes. More of a night palettes I would say even though it does have a few neutral shades.

The texture of the eye shadows feel like satin and are super soft and creamy. Some of the shades in the palette are a bit light on my skin tone but I like to use them as a base or in the crease as a transition shade.

All three eye shadow palettes packaging isn't very much and you do need to be careful as if you drop it might crack. Mine did and I was lucky enough that it didn't crack the eye shadows. They are very travel and friendly as you have a few shades and can create a few different looks with just one palette. Obviously the 9 colour eye shadow palette has a bigger variety and more options. The eye shadows are pigmented but I noticed that if you apply an eye primer before hand that that eye shadows will show up even more and last much longer. Without a primer I would get about 3 hours of wear time as I have very oily eye lids and with a primer I can pro long the wear time up to about 5-6 hours. As they are very powdery you need to be very careful about fall out so I recommend dusting off the excess before starting your eye makeup. My favourite palette is the Parisian Chic as I prefer creating more neutral eye makeup. These palettes are also very handy when I have to go out on makeup jobs as it reduces the amount of makeup I carry with me.
