Wanted a neutral palette for my everyday eye - and that's what I got with this! Affordable and love the colours. Agreed with others, the 4th silver colour isn't the best, but the rest are fab. Have been using this everyday and it lasts on the eyelid a long time, and it applies like a dream. I like how it has some cool tones and some warm tones but they blend together really well.

I love how neutral this palette is. And by that I mean it doesn't scream too warm or too cool. This stands out from my collection of eyeshadows for that reason. The fourth shade is glittery and waxy, and I never use it - it applies horribly. However, the other shades are wonderful neutrals and perfect for a daytime look. The quality is on par with NYX singles (except for the 4th shade).

I like this palette because it has got the right combo for everyday neutral/natural, or brown smoky look. Pigmentation is good, shadows last all day with a good primer (UDPP). The darkest one, Mahongy brown is good for crease, smoky eye or as eyeliner. With a light hand, I use it for my eyebrows as well. The silver on the other hand has major fallouts and not exactly easy to use, so 1 lippie off.

Decent pigmentation and fairly long wearing. I use 4 out of 5 of these colours regularly but absolutely hate the grey/silver one. As I mentioned in my Dream of St Marteen review, the NYX Nude on Nude natural look kit contains most of the shadows from both Marteen and Nevis and is a good buy if you use both palettes but aren't sure if you want to rebuy them.

I love this palette! One of my favorite looks I do now is pairing the first two shades 1. being the highlight and 2. on the lid blending it with WnW envy on the outer v and I love the look. The palette comes off as cool neutrals and I love working with all the colors in combination with the exception of the silver sparkly one (I'm not really loving this one). I find that the colors are nicely pigmented (which is a hit or miss w/ NYX). These colors blend so nice with other brands you have as well. For $8.75, you can't go wrong and the package is very cute, sturdy and comes with a mirror and two e/s applicators.

Neutral browish grey that brings out my brown eyes.

The first color is lighter than I expected so I only use a little and spread it out. The second color looks greyish on my skin, which I did not expect. This color doesn't look natural by itself on my lid, but paired with the other three (minus the glittter one), it looks good. The third and the last are great shimmer colors, just like I thought.

What's up with the glitter silver shade's texture? Feels like there's too much waxy stuff in it... it doesn't make a sheen color. I only see sparkling glitters in wax. Don't know how to use it. Will replace this color.

And then I will send down my brush so it fits in the slot for the crappy applicators and it's good to go.

The Nevis palette from the Caribbean collection is another great neutral palette. Like jamacia this is perfect quality for the price. This look is perfect for day, work and it can be dramatic for cocktail hour as well. like the jamacia palette, the Quality is smooth, pigmented, and definately buildable I love that, and for $9 I'd buy it again.

The Nevis palette from the Caribbean collection is another terrific neutral array. To me they lean cool-toned, but could conceivably adjust to a warmer complexion. Two matte shades and three shimmers, flattering and subtle - nothing dramatic. This is the gentlest of all the palettes, I believe. Quality is smooth, pigmented, a tad sheer but buildable. I go to Nevis when I want a fresh, natural look and it is perfect for that.
