Wow! This eyeshadow is so beautiful and unique, I don't think I've seen one like this before. Its warm tone silvery-taupe with some khaki green undertones and a hint gold shimmer. Like how sometimes eucalyptus leafs are sometime covered in silvery white fuzz and you can barely notice the green. anyways...
When applied as a wash across the lids, its very neutral in color, it just illuminates your eyes and makes my green standout. It has a super creamy silky texture, so it just slides across your lids when you apply it.
This is definitely my new favorite eyeshadow.

Really great light taupe color, good to use for an easy 'everyday' eye. I use this over a colored base to just deepen the color a bit. It usually lasts all day with a primer. Can't go wrong with this color either. I think this could be wearable on many skintones.

This is a light to medium taupy shimmery colour. I love it as i like ligher shades, the smokey eye look just don't work for me. Most of the time, I'll apply this on my lids and it'll look natural yet very nicely shimmery. Other times, i'll apply this at the out corners and an ivory shade on the inner corner.

Eucalyptus is a very pretty pale neutral shimmer. It works wonderfully for a variety of uses. I especially like this for an "Angelina Jolie" kind of look with black liquid liner. Most of the NYX shadow singles I have are very long-lasting when paired with an eye primer, and this one is no exception. It's also very nicely pigmented and has a nice sheen to it.
EDIT: After using this shadow a bit more, I have decided it is one of my all-time favorite neutrals. It's perfect for a smokey eye or a daytime look. It's very subtle and pretty, with very fine shimmer. Love it!

This is gorgeous - I'm surprised the reviews aren't better for this. This is a lovely slightly frosty shadow that has a taupey-pearl sheen with a hint of green here, and a hint of lilac there. I don't think pictures would do this justice. For the $4 or so that a NYX shadow costs, please chance this one and order with the next haul you make on CherryCulture.com, or Nonpareilboutique.com.

Eucalyptus is nice subtle shade that can be worn as an all-over color wash. It has a slight tinge of grey and more of a pinkish caste. It's very similar to Sparkle Cedar, which I like better. It could be my coloring, but this one tends to make me look a little sallow. I have been pairing this with browns and purples, and it seems to work for evening.

This is a great colour but it IS subtle...I was looking for a wearable grey and this is just not quite what I was going for. I generally buy all my eyeshadows from MAC, but I lately discovered NYX and have been going a little crazy (almost purchased the entire line!! ha ha) I think I need to get a MAC matte grey and call it a day, seems like all I have is shimmery grey/silver shades which I don't wear often for daytime.
However, this is almost a satin finish and really lovely on. Very subtle but I also find it incredibly sophisticated. Pair it with Prune and it is a gorgeous combo for blue or brown eyes.

I *love* this color. It's a silvery taupe with just a smidge of pink. It's what I wanted Smoke and Diamonds to be. It's lighter and not as brown, but it looks awesome with S&D. This also looks good with a dark purple shadow in the crease.

lovely neutral colour in the pot. hardly shows up on my skintone (NC35) but I can use it on days when I just want a very subtle sheen on my eyes. great price point
*Update* 06/01/10: Bumped up the rating by one lippie. Now that I've ceased tanning and am NC25 (more NC27ish lol), Eucalyptus is fabulous for giving a cool toned wash on my lids

Pretty grey taupe color. The shadow feels soft but I found it hard to blend. I also had to layer it to get any color payoff. This my first NYX shadow and they get such great reviews but I prefer Cover Girl or Maybelline to this.

I <3 this eye shadow!!!! I just got this a while ago and Ive been wearing it everyday since. As a wash and as highlight, works equally great!!! On my skin it looks like warm silver colour, not gaudy looking at all! Also, this stuff is very pigmented and stays on quiet well. Absolutely beautiful. Oh, and I have tan skin with yellow undertone.

On me this is a dull warm silver, a good grey for warm-toned skin (if that's not a contradiction in terms). I find it a little more wearable than Frosted Flakes because it tends towards brown rather than purple.
