I like it but feel it could be better
always a fan of nyx products this one depending on the shade is somewhat of a miss with the few I tried and it has normally been the brighter colors but if you use some type of primer it helps.
More of a wash than a pop
This was the first NYX shadow color that I purchased. I had a specific look in mind and was having the worst time finding the right color on short (i.e. three hours before call time) notice. Bright Green, aptly named, was exactly what I wanted. At least, it was what I wanted in its container...
The shadow itself is smooth and blends flawlessly. Unfortunately, on my skintone this color was a living nightmare. At first, it did not show up. I had to keep layering to get even the slightest hint of color. When the color did appear, it was far yellower than the shadow looks in the pot.
I have since purchased other shades and been happy with them, but I stay away from bright/light colors. The deeper greens and blues are true to color, but it seems that the shadows have to be applied with either a heavy hand or a very wet brush to get rich tones. Definitely something to keep in mind. I keep a few in my kit for bridal looks as well as for daywear and youth makeup, but I wouldn't recommend them for avantgarde, dramatic/editorial, or drag makeup.
I would say that NYX shadows are not as good as some department store shadows (MAC, Urban Decay, Lorac, etc) but I would say they're absolutely better than any shadow you will find at a drug store. NYX is usually relatively cheap, and definitely worth the money! If you have the option, save your money from drugstore shadows and buy NYX.
High end in color, but not in price :)
i love how this product is get for my wallet, but it doesnt skip on the color just like any product from this company. I use alot of Nyx products in my tuturals because of the great color and they are eazy to work with. From bright to dark and every color in between you will never have a bad buy.

AH! I love this eyeshadow! Want to know something? This is a complete dupe for MAC's satin taupe! i use this and it is absolutly amazing. I definently reccomend this if you want MAC's satin taupe because it is the exact same! And they are so much cheaper! They are pigminted and go on smoothly! I use this one for my crease sometimes ,and I love it!
I have a handful of these in my collection, and I love every one! They're extremely pigmented, stay on very well (even without primer), not much fallout, beautiful colours and very smooth. I have Luxor, Peach, and a shimmery pink. I like the price, too, and great quality:)
I loved these single shadows from nyx...the pricing are good...and it lasts for a long time..very blend-able...and quality of colors are great...unfortunately, mine were all lost during shipping while I was moving out of states...:(..can't wait to get my hands on them again...
