NYX Ultimate Shadow Palette: A quick review

NYX Ultimate Shadow Palette: A quick review

What it is: A collection of pressed pigments and shadows in a variety of different colour collections and sizes to create pro-MUA inspired looks.

Beauty bonus: The glitter pressed pigments are seriously comparable to luxury brands.

Beauty bummer: Not a bummer, just a reminder that as will all shadows, a primer amps up the staying power and colour payoff.

Overall: NYX got it right with these eyeshadow formulas. 

The mix of different finishes (matte, satin and foil) and the curated colour stories are super — from their smaller edit version all the way to the ultimate Utopia collection. We thought the dark shadows had good colour payoff and very nice blend-ability (but they did fade a bit through the day). The foils and medium shades were our go-tos. 

We seriously loved the versatility of the shade range. Overall, these pallets are accessible for tight budgets or those who want to try a variety of finishes, all the way to hardcore makeup fans that want high-performance shadows.

Would recommend: Yes

Price: From $11.99
