Nyx Glitter Cream Palette Swatches & Review

Nyx Glitter Cream Palette in ocean Breeze

Written by: Guest Blogger Alice
Nyx Claims “Transform your look, or float from day to night, with a dash of celestial sparkle. Our palette of five gel-based can be used to embellish eyes, cheeks and lips. Two applicators with sponge and brush tips included. Available in 12 shades.”

My View
I got myself 3 boxes of the Nyx Glitter Cream palettes- Paradise, Ocean Blue and Eden. Although, what I noticed later was , there was repetition of shades between Paradise and Eden. I dont really mind though because the glitter palette colors are gorgeous, and they only cost $6.Ofcourse this is if you buy off international websites. In India they cost tons more ! I got mine from cherryculture.com where they are on sale for $4.50!!

The glitter palettes are multi purpose products that can be used on eyes, body face and lips. They have a long staying power and give an amazing glittery effect when applied. However they crease on the eyelid easily and a primer is required before application. They also cannot be used as standalone shades- but rather they are to be used on top of existing eyeshadows to add that dazzle to your look.

There are 12 palettes available. Each palette consists of 5 gel based glitter shades. This multipurpose product also comes with two applicators having 3 sponge tips and one brush.The packaging is neat and crisp. The palettes come in a 4×2 rectangular box, which is very sleek, light and stylish. The cove is transparent, so you can see all the colors clearly.
The applicators are tiny but usable, although I prefer using chunkier brushes, but hey! You can’t expect them to fit into these boxes.

Nyx Glitter Cream Palette Swatches


  • Great variety of colors. Vast shades to choose from.
  • Multipurpose. Can be used on lips, as well as body/face.
  • Cheap.
  • Long staying power.
  • It looks A.M.A.Z.I.N.G when applied!!!
  • Suits all skin tone (loads of choices available).


  • Creases on the eyelid, primer required before application.
  • The colors are good only if used over an eye shadow. Standalone application gives a sparse look. 
  • Glitters are not very fine, so they may cause a little bit of discomfort when the gel starts drying out.
Rating :4/5 or A-
Price: 6$ on Cherry Culture!

Recommendation:NYX Glitter Cream Palettes present stunning glitter colors which will definitely add up the glamour quotient in you on your eyes or elsewhere. But yes, you have to be really skilled in its usage as it might make you look over the top. But used wisely, its a beauty multiplier!! The colors look amazing and add an extra glitzy factor to your look especially when used at a night out.
