in eyeshadow, Nyx

If you are confused about which Nyx palette to order, and you have hazel/ brown eyes,  I would say…stop thinking and just order this one. Because this, is tailor made for us brown eyed beauties! The ten color palette has colors ranging from emerald greens to soft purples to browns, taupes and champagnes. What more does a girl  brown eyed girl want?
It almost makes me want to sing “Brown eyed girl in the ring..tra la la la la “. Yes i know its brown girl in the ring but this goes with my post theme better okay. Hmph.

All the colors have lovely textures- they are nice and buttery and pigmented. They show up in one stroke and are very flattering for brown eyes. There is one particular shade which is slightly chalky, but hey..every palette is allowed one miss right? The shadows dont necessarily last a very long time on their own, but over a primer they do good.

Shade descriptions

Shade 1 : A sheeny deep brown with subtle shimmer. Like this a lot for crease area
Shade 2: A taupey silvery grey brown with chunky glitter. Not a very pigmented shade, more glitter than color
Shade 3: A beautiful champagne color with pearl finish
Shade 4: A silvery white- nice for inner corner or brow bone highlights
Shade 5 :A metallic silvery purple. This is slightly chalky on me…not my favourite color of the lot
Shade 6: A deep purple with micro shimmer.Very pretty.
Shade 7: A gorgeous emerald green. This is one of the most beautiful greens iv ever seen
Shade 8: A gorgeous peachy color with pearl finish. One of my favourite shades of the lot
Shade 9: A nice pigmented matte brown- every girl needs one
Shade 10: A yellowy gold. Its slightly too yellow for me, i wish it was more  gold than yellow

Swatches of Shades:10,9,8,7,6

Swatches of Shades 5,4,3,2

Overall Verdict : 3.5/5
Price: 8$  (Rs 400 approx+ shipping)

Will I Repurchase: Yes

Overall Recommendation: These are some of the more affordable palettes out there, and nyx palettes in generall are a hit or a miss. This one is a definite hit, while another one i tried was  quite a miss. If you have brown/ hazel eyes or even green eyes this is a lovely palette for everyday eye looks. There are some neutrals you can wear to work and some vivid greens and purples to brighten up your day! These are no inglot or MAC, but for the price you pay, you get more than your moneys worth
