I just wanted to post a quick review and swatches of some NYX eyeshadows I picked up on sale for $3. I picked up the colors Dust sparkle, Deep Bronze and Cryptonite. Overall, I’m not impressed with these. They’re fairly pigmented, but nothing impressive. The colors look much prettier in the pan than in the swatches, so that was disappointing. They go on smoothly and aren’t very chalky.
Dust Sparkle, the pink shade, is not very pigmented but can be built up for a more noticeable color. Unfortunately, It fades faster than the two other colors.
Cryptonite, the black shade, is lighter than a typical shimmery black. Personally, I like the fact its more of a light charcoal color because black shades look too intense on my fair skin.
Deep bronze, swatches as a golden bronze shade with orange tones to it. In the pan it looks more like a true brown color, so this shocked me a bit.
Overall, these colors are nice but I find they look different on skin than they do in the pan. I love NYX products so I had hopes for these, but I was a tad disappointed. For $3 they’re worth it, but I wouldn’t pay much more for them. To me, they’re standard eyeshadows, the colors don’t blow me away.
Have you tried these before, if so do you like them?
