NYX is one of my favorite lines of cosmetics. And they did not disappoint with this shadow! There are many shades to choose from and they all are highly pigmented. I use a cheap primer so do not know how well these stay on without one. But they all have worked amazingly well for me. Easy to apply (you can go from sheer to heavy with these) and no flaking. Stays put until I am ready to take it off and removes easily. And most of all for a great price!

If you're looking for a great and affordable cool toned medium brown crease shade then try Nyx Tryst. It's similar to Mac Wedge.

I bought this in Skinny Dip (which I'm pretty sure doesn't have it's own review slot)

I have the Too Faced Chocolate bar and was really liking how Strawberry Bon Bon looked and wanted to get into more matte looks (aside from the browns that were already in my palette) to add to the Strawberry Bon Bon or even for different shades, like a taupe matte eye. I looked up some Makeup Revolution palettes but wasn't impressed with the pigmentation in store, so I got this in Skinny Dip and swatched a few Hot Singles (that were also matte, just not part of this line) and got those instead. I will agree with all the people who say Nyx's formulation changed...they are a little chalky but I still think Skinny Dip has good pigmentation, so for that color alone I will give a 4, but I wasn't impressed with any other colors so I can see why as a whole they don't get a lot of love.

The cases are so freaking cheap, don't drop those. Even peeling the sticker off, I felt the window start to fall into the case. Uggghh I don't have enough replacement pots for all the Nyx singles I've broken already! It's a trend with them, but the new (round) casing seems to be worse.

I wanted a few more pinky shades but didn't really love the ones availale in the Matte line, so I didn't buy any more of those. I did end up buying a few Makeup Revolution palettes anyway (presumably for the warmer pink matte shades) and I'm going to write a review for those next.

I bought the first batch of matte nude that came out, lap dance, leather and lace and I have a headache.
I love all 3 colors and ran out of lap dance to find out they change their formulation ( again! ) and now its really chalky. Now I'm looking for a dupe of lap dance because it was my go to eye shadow for a neutral look. I think I'm going to replace it with mac shadow...
Will not repurchase because I am so sick that NYX change the formulation, I've been buying their brand since they came out, they went from amazing in quality to super shitty, so I am not buying from them anymore.

Some of the NYX shadows are hit and miss for me. This review is for the Nude Matte Shadow in the color "Kiss the Day". I found it on sale at my local grocery store and it's the perfect vanilla color for my brow bone. I use it every day and it's very pigmented! The formula is very silky, not chalky and it lasts most of the day. You can't beat the price and you get quite a bit of product. I'll keep repurchasing for under my brows and my inner crease.

As some other reviewers have said, there are some perfect taupes in here for contouring on cool toned, fair skin. I've been using my custom Anastasia contour palette for about a year, and it's been ok, but it can look garish if I'm not careful and even "fawn" is a little warm on me. I forget the color I got in this, but it's honestly amazing for contouring!! It's very light, and natural looking and blends in perfectly while still giving me definition (like I said I don't remember the name but it's 07.)

I love these, but I don't use them as eyeshadow. As eyeshadow, I find them totally useless and horrible. I have four shades and have thrown two away because I just have no use for them. But the other two, "Underneath it All" and "Bare My Soul" are my favorite contour powders of all time. The formula is buttery smooth, however they are not very pigmented, making them awful on the eyes but awesome on the face. These two eyeshadows are amazing as contours because they are exactly the right shades for the shadows on your face. I think a lot of people can use these shades as contours and if not there are a lot of cool/neutral shades in the range to choose from. The best part is that it's inexpensive and in most people's price range. I recommend it to everyone as a contour. Awesome stuff.

These are amazing! So soft and velvety, they actually blend and are cheap! The colors are so pretty and versatile I am going to start a collection! Move over Mac, I think I will be sticking to Nyx for awhile..

I bought these at Ulta in Craving for $5 and Birthday Suit for $2.50 because of the sale. I thought Craving, a dark armor grey didn't look great on the eye. It was just not an attractive grey. It had hints of blue in it but was also light which I think is not a very good combination. I loved Birthday Suit because it's a beautiful, calm pale pink. It looked beautiful when it was on the lid. I'd highly recommend Birthday Suit!

So far, I can only do a review on one shade: Maybe Later. I was browsing in the NYX section and decided to swatch some shadows out. Maybe Later really appealed to me because it's sort of a nude/skin tone colour that is a neutral light brown. It's just a few shades darker than my own skintone, so it really looks like a nice and natural wash of colour.

I love the pigmentation, the creamy and soft texture of this eyeshadow. I would've purchased more but I wanted to try one out on my lids before I committed to purchasing more. I will definitely be back, as they have a lot of gorgeous shades that would look good on most skin tones. Maybe Later is a really nice tan/brown shade that can be built up really well. I primed my eyes using NYX's full coverage concealer and the eyeshadow hasn't moved all day. It's super easy to blend, and the colour payoff is similar to high end cosmetics.

I purchased the shadow for $7 CDN, and I think sales on NYX cosmetics are super worth while when their eye shadows are such high quality. Even at full price, the NYX shadows are less than the MAC eye shadow pans. Score!

Will definitely re-purchase, and try more colours. I'll upate this review when I have more colours in my collection.
