6 matte shades, 3 gorgeous satin finish shades and one beautiful highlighter shade, well what else do you need in a eyeshadow palette ? Introducing the NYX Avant Pop palette – Surreal My Heart, which makes your eyes pop.

All these shades are about 2.83 gms which is much more than the usual eyeshadow amount.This comes in a normal plastic packaging, nothing fancy. It is very light to carry hence travel friendly.


All the shades are so opaque and true to color except shade 9 marked below. It is a gorgeous peach but somehow looks pale and white-ish when applied on the eyelid.


Shade 2 and 6 are two of the most unique shades in this palette. 2 is a bold mint yellow color and is gorgeous when combined with any brown  color on the crease.6 is a shimmery gray kind of shade which looks amazing on everyone.

Shade 4 brown and Shade 5 mauve are amazing when used on the crease. Shade 3 green and Shade 7 blue are the stars of this palette and can brighten up any look. Shade 1 works as an amazing highlighter shade. I use it as a highlighter below my eyebrows.


Another major plus point is that all of these shadows are so long lasting. I have tried it with and without primer. It is obvious that with primer it looks amazing and stays on for a longer duration but even without it, these shades look really good. Blending is so easy with these which is always a plus point. These shadows do have  fallout but very minimum and you can easily swipe it off with a brush.

This palette retails for 17 $, which I think is a bit pricey for NYX but when compared to the variety and quantity, I feel it is worth it. 



Pros :

  • Very good color payoff
  • Long lasting
  • Right combination of matte and satin shades

Cons :

  • No mirror or brush included
  • A little bit of fallout


Verdict : A

Price : $ 17

Recommendation: I will definitely recommend this eye-shadow palette because the neutral colors can be used on a daily basis and the rest reserved for special occasions.
