I want to start off by saying I love the size of the pans. For the price, it is fantastic, 8 bucks for 3 shadows! I have to commend NYX for making such pigmented products as well. The color selection for the trios are always phenomenal. My palette reminds me of Barbie, but I am also interested in the Anti Diva Palette and the Casablanca Palette.
I do have a few gripes about the product. I notice that even with a primer the shadows fade quite a bit throughout the day. I do not know if it is just because of the colors, since two of them are more on the pastel side but if I know it's going to be a longer day I usually stay away from these shadows.
I also noticed that Hot Pink (which is *not* hot pink...) feels a bit chalky in consistency where the other two (Cherry and Cool Blue) feel much more velvety and are MUCH richer in their color pay offs.
Over all, I think that buying the trios are worth the money, especially if you are interested in some bolder colors and do not want to spend too much on brands that are more pricey.
NYX Eyeshadow Trio #13 contains the shadows Cherry - a red pink, Cool Blue - a sky blue, and Hot Pink - a medium blue based pink. I purchased this trio at Ulta for $7.99. The price feels a little high to me, but its cheaper than buying three NYX singles, so I guess its a good deal. The packaging on this is a basic black case with a small window that shows the top half of the shadows. I think it looks pretty sleek. There’s a decent sized mirror on the inside. The packaging says “Triple Shadows for Sexy Babe’s Eyes Only.” I guess they’re referring to me? I think it sounds weird and looks like something you’d find on Engrish Funny. They are pretty good shadows, but not quite at the quality level I expect from NYX. They’re not as soft and buttery as my other NYX shadows. They’re borderline powdery. Color payoff is good for Cherry and Cool Blue. Hot pink however, is very sheer. It takes a lot of work to get it to show up. Wear time is good, I get about 7 hours before fading occurs. I have no creasing issues. Application is easy. The shades are blendable and work well together. They don’t product any noticeable fallout. You’ll really have to pack Hot Pink on to get it to work though. While these colors work well together, I have a really hard time coming up with looks for this trio, so I don’t get a lot of use from this. While these shadows aren’t quite up to to par with NYX’s usual quality, these are still pretty good. I recommend this trio if you’re creative, like unexpected color combinations, and enjoy bold eye looks.
