Many moons ago, I went on a crazy spending spree and purchased this 112 eyeshadow palette from NYX Cosmetics – NYX Box Of Eye Shadows. I had never used any NYX make-up products before but I had read rave reviews of their lipsticks and eyeshadows so I went ahead and bought this palette, three NYX lipsticks and a NYX lipgloss (which remains unopened).
What NYX Say
Lovers of eye candy will thrill to the glorious array of eye shadows in this kaleidoscopic kit. Numbering 112 shades, all of them highly pigmented, they range from rich darks to bold brights, from sultry mattes to luminous silvers.
NYX Box Of Eye Shadows is packaged beautifully in a sturdy box with two layers. The top layer is accessed by lifting up the lid and it consists mostly of neutral colours and the bottom layer is accessed by sliding it out from underneath, like a drawer. The bottom layer is full of bright colours. Not all the eyeshadows have the same texture – some are smooth and buttery and have superb pigmentation, whereas some need extra help to make them work. There is fall-out with some eyeshadows and this box is not ideal for travelling purposes.
One of the reasons why I decided to buy NYX Box Of Eye Shadows is because I wanted to dabble with neutral brown eyeshadows. I have never worn neutral brown colours on my eyes (hence why the Naked Palette never tickled my fancy)! And guess what? I still haven’t! I have no idea how to wear brown. It just doesn’t look good on me! I favour the bright coloured shades any day!!!
NYX Box Of Eye Shadows has a fantastic range of eyeshadows from neutral to bold and matte to shimmer. It is great for experimenting with the variety of shades and creating fun make-up looks from an affordable drugstore brand. A highly affordable alternative to Urban Decay and Inglot palettes. I know I won’t be able to use all 112 shades but it’s good to know that I have them…if that makes any sense! 😛
I used this to create my Candy FOTD and I’ll show you another FOTD I created with this in the next few days so stay tuned!
Have you tried NYX eyeshadows before?
