Are they any good? Thinking of buying an NYX pallet
they are bomb!
very good, and very cheap, but sometimes the color comes out differently then it looks. doesnt stop me from buying them though!
I don't like them, both the singles and the eyeshadow palettes. Colours are gorgeous, but I dislike the formula. I've had chalkiness, sheerness. Just... not good.

I've never tried them. I heard so many amazing things about their liquid foundation, I tried some and ugh. It was the perfect shade but man was it oily.

The NYX single eyeshadows are very good, they're silky and richly pigmented. The only single that I was completely disappointed in as their Hot Green single--it's more glitter than anything.
The trios are also pretty good, still has good pigmentation but they're not as silky to the touch as their singles. The trio color combinations might not strike your fancy either, since there isn't a good variation of a light shade, mid-tone shade, and deep-shade; most of them just seem to be 3 equally bright or 3 equally dark colors.
The 10-color palettes are AMAZING; the texture and pigmentation is similar to the singles. If you want a good starter palette, I recommend these. I haven't tried their larger palettes but I've heard mixed reviews about them; I notice that the larger the palettes of any given eyeshadow brand (especially budget brands), the less pigmentation there is.

I have one single and a few palettes - some are fantastic, some are just good, but none of them are bad. I really like the singles and trios!
I really like the shadows as far as the texture and pigmentation! The only problem I sometimes have is excessive fall out but that's only with certain colors and it's nothing that can't be easily fixed. I would definitely recommend them!
Overall, the NYX shadows are a bargain for the price but there are some things to watch out for. Many of the lighter shadows have the chalky finish, and palettes that focus on one color "philosophy" (the Nude on Nude or smokey palettes) contain a number of colors that don't swatch all that differently. Some would say that this is the point, but it almost comes across as paying for unnecessary duplicating colors. I've had great experiences with the medium and darker shades--particularly in the orange, gold, brown, green, and blue ranges. I do always wear the NYX shadows with primer, and generally get decent amounts of wear out of them.
