Got this colour in a BOGO on Ulta and I checked MUA first before I bought it and I'm glad I did because I love it! I just did a swipe on my lid and it really brightened up my green eyes. I think this colour is really an eye enhancer for any colour eye. I can even use it as a full lid colour and it looks beautiful.
Shimmery but not too much and I had no fall out with it. In fact I used it with my naked basics and had more of a problem with the fallout from that then this. I am very impressed with NYX cosmetics their quality seems to be very good and the prices are excellent. Such a beautiful shimmery light color. Great for fair skinned girls and darker skin tones as you can use it to highlight.
Luv it and highly recommended!
I bought this after extensive swatching, and for some reason it comes out very bland color wise. Not very pigmented and basically looks like my skin with a little shimmer. I'm disappointed in all my purchases today. I wonder if it's the store or did Nyx change their formula? I kept this, but I'm not sure if I will in the long run yet. Will have to try it out some more.
Update: In the end I decided to keep this and the other ones I kept since. It is very faint but useful for some looks.
One of my favorite eyeshadows, period. Just a gorgeous very shimmery champagne beige-y color with absolutely buttery smooth texture and insane pigmentation. Similar shades would be MAC Naked Lunch, All That Glitters, Stila Kitten, UD Sin (these aren't dupes necessarily, there is variation is the color - some more pink, some more gold, etc, but same overall concept). This stands up to or exceeds the best high end shadows out there, at a much lower price. I've made my last few purchases of NYX products through ebay - I was skeptical at first but you can get the products even cheaper than at ulta or other online retailers. Just find a power seller (the one I've purchased from is Joy's Cosmetics and she's great).
This eyeshadow just look like light golden grease on my eyelids. I dont like it at all. In fact, I hate it.
31 yo and totally m/u noob, so i don't spend on high end cosmetics, i read tons of review before i go 'ok let's go buy it', and im also cheap on makeup since i tend to spend more on skincare -and gadgets.
so, i was looking for highlighter for my NC25-ish skin. im asian, on the slightly darker end of NC25, super yellow undertone even i tend to burn under sunlight.i was looking for a highlighter because i just realized that i have high cheekbones after having them for 30years.what a dim wit.
I wanted the highlighter not to be glittery,or disco ball-y.it has to be yellow-toned,not beige/white/pink/silver/gold.i ended up with zilch.or not really, there was NARS Albatross, but i dont want to spend 36$ for just one product.
then i thought why not eyeshadow?e/s are cheap,so i can get more options.if it doesn't work,i can use it on my eyes.
so i get this from local online store.
packaging : well,i don't care enough as long as the lid closed well and i can hear that 'click'.nice enough with transparent lid/cap so i dont confuse it with my other NYX blushes.
shade/color/pigmentation : AMAZING.since when i put it on, i thought it was going to be an epic failure.but heck no.it is beautiful.it blends amazingly to my skin tone.it is not obnoxious or screams 'look at this shiny part'.it tends to be cream-ish with yellow/pale golden undertone on me, which is quite a steal.lasting power is amazing.it stays there until i clean it up.
how i apply this as highlighter: even im not sure this is interesting to read, but i applied this on my cheek bone,cupid's bow,and top of my eyebrow just a tiny little bit because my lids aren't that good.i use elf studio angled contour brush [thank you again MUA,this brush sucks for eyeshadow,but great to apply highlighter in areas other than eyes].
well , not bad for a noob .
This is another NYX single eyeshadow I got to try the brand out. I like that it's a very neutral color on me. I use it on days where I'm going for a natural look.
love!!! love love this color, for everyday use, its amazing, looks really nice with my fair skin and hazel eyes. its pigmented, but not too much, shiny, but not too much, its perfect! lasts all day long, i came back from work and still looks awsome. sonetimes i use as a primer stay dont stray from benefit but because i like how they look togheter, not because i think that this one should go with a primer. will rebuy forever!
Ok, I admit, this one is a little powdery, but I Don't care! I've hit the pan on it. It's the color of sand, kind of shimmery beige. It doesn't lean too heavily yellow, peach or pink. I reach for it constantly. Now, if anyone out there knows of a match to this one with better texture, please point me to it, but in the meantime I'll buy it again.
NYX is a pain in the bum to get hold of in the UK so this ended up being an eBay purchase but I'm glad I made the effort.
This is one of a selection of eyeshadows I have that are easy to slap on with a bit of mascara when I'm running late for work (which is always!) as I don't have to worry about it's longevity or creasing and the colour complements my green eyes.
For the price, it's brilliant and I will definitely be picking up more NYX shadows soon!
This is quickly becoming one of my all time favorite eye shadow's! This is exactly what I wanted MAC's 'all that glitters' to be. Sahara is a a beautiful light golden champagne. Sahara looks amazing with a base/primer and some mascara, When I wear it I look so awake and its so natural! This color is also very universal.. It would look good on many skintones and can be worn with almost any crease color! I love this color very much and I strongly recommend it!
