Just tried out Pearl Mania products for the first time and I love it! You need so little and get so much, awesome pigmentation and so easy to blend. The color is a great warm bronze/brown that would look good on any skintone.
I'm in love, specially for the price, I prefer NYX over anything else. The jar is not a problem for me, I guess most make-up lovers will have a small brush that fits in the opening.

This is a really nice eyeshadow. I bought this from Ulta along with the original Pearl pigment. I blend the 2 pigments to make a beautiful shimmery smokey eye. The brown blends great and looks great against brown eyes. I will definitly repurchase.

Beautiful bronzy color. I was fortunate enough to buy a bunch of these Ultra Pearl Mania colors years ago when they were only 99 cents. I would not repurchase them at the current price.

It's kinda the perfect bronze to sum it up.
Pkg: bottle w/narrow neck
Colour: deep bronzy brown
Finish: metallicy and tons of shimmers
As per usual with any loose e/s fallouts are unavoidable. Just do ur face makeup afterwards. This with a sparkly (or matte if that's ur thing) black in the crease makes for a simple bronze smokey eye. And stays crease-free w/good primer underneath (MAC PP/Maybelline CT)
Love the NYX UPM and will try others :)

This is my favourite NYX pigment that I own. It's beautiful! I like to wear this all over my lid and then put black in my crease - perfect simple smokey eye! And when you use these pigments wet they look like liquid metal, so gorgeous. I would buy this over and over again. The container they come in is useless so what I do is buy empty lipgloss containers with the screw top lid and put the eye shadow in there. Works perfectly and saves a lot of mess!

Wow i love this colour! Tried it on myself and on my sister. Blended very well and it sat on the whole evening (with eyeshadow base) I will definitly buy this product again, it's cheap also!

I LOVEE THE COLORSS! especially walnut!
Walnut is very similar to MAC bronze aswell!
the pigmentation is super!
and the staying power is pretty good
only 2 complaints though:
1) i do not like the container it comes in :(
2) the price here in Canada is $4.99!!!!!
kinda expensive for a small pigment.

The color looks good, but I just don't like the texture. It's very hard to blend and the quality just isn't there.

This is such a beautiful dark bronze. It makes my eyes pop, especially when paired with a champagne colored wash. The pigmentation is fantastic and works well even when dry, without too much fall out. It is milled very finely so it goes on smoothly and stays on with UDPP or with Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy.
ROP for pic+
Here I used Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy as a base (MUST have for pigments) with MAC Vanilla all over lid and a little bit of NYX Walnut pearl in the crease

Doesn't come off as dark as it seems in the jar, but still a nice color. A tiny bit goes a long way. Shimmery and warm.

Walnut Pearl is just such a wonderful color because it's so warm, rich and shimmery. I never had them for more than 10 hours but from what I've seen, they last for a good period of time. However, since the packaging is so small, it's not easy to get them out with a brush.

i love this color! its a rich bronze color, in fact its a very good dupe of mac's bronze e/s. i love this color for a dark brown/black smokey eye. for the $1.25 it cant get any better.

It sort of reminds me of my MAC Museum Bronze pigment from the Overrich collection. You know, a silky smooth pigment with great color payoff. This, Oro, and Mink are the best and have the same texture. Almost exact copies of the MAC. $1.25! And I filled up a jar... there is alot in those little jars when you pour them into another. I buy 2 for 97 cents jars at Walmart in the travel toiletries section.

I love these, for a buck or two these have replaced any other pigments. These are super fine milled and have a strong color even without a base!!
Chestnut is a really nice deep brown, it's great for a smokey eye if you're going for a warmer look without traditional black. It has just the right amount of shimmer too - enough to make your eyes pop and sparkle, but you won't look overdone and obnoxious.
To address the small bottle opening problem, you can use sampler jars for easy access. I find that the powder gets stuck up in the neck of the jar, so I just take my eyeshadow brush and wipe the excess off of there and get just enough for an eye. Also be careful when opening because sometimes it can be a powder explosion.

This is such a beautiful warm/shimmery bronze. I just am in love with it. I love pairing this with a gold eyeshadow and looks so good! I can't believe the quality of these pigments for such a cheap price. They are amazing!! This is my favorite shade out of all the pigments. Wears all day and doesn't fade. I do wear a base, either too faced eyeshadow insurance or UD primer. Girls try these out! They are so cheap but so awesome!

A very pretty, super shimmery, super smooth bronzey brown color that makes my eyes pop...With these shadows, it only takes a touch because they are so pigmented and vibrant!
~For ladies worried about what brush to use b/c the opening is so small: I use a sponge-tip applicator to apply, it makes things so easy & you can easily dip that little applicator into the bottle if you need to.

Packaging is cute, but not practical. Very hard to fit any brush into the jar which causes you to need to transfere the pigment into another container. The shadow itself is a beautiful dark brown with light glitter. Easy to blend and apply. Will definitely repurchase.

this is so pretty! now this is the color i was thinking of for a nice bronze. its a med-dark bronzy brown color and i love it. ive had it on all day and it hasnt even creased! way better then any of the other powders ive used (exc for Splash). i think ill have to stock up on some of these colors!

Great color, I love deeper but not overly dark browns. This is all that with a glimmer sheen. Much browner than copper, like the color of a tree trunk, just made into a shadow to apply with a wet mixing agent. Definetly not a copper color, If you want copper, buy the color Oro in the ultra pearl mania. This is a great dark brown that gives off a metallic gold reflect.

This is one of the best shadows that I have tried in a long time. Most shadows that claim to be used dry/wet don't compare to the quality of this. The color of Walnut itself is what I've been looking for. I have a deeper complexion so I only use earthtones most of the time (can be used natural for everyday; gorgeous smokey eye with darker shadow/liner for night) and this is now my HG (I just loooove the metallic-ness (?) of it all. Plus the fact that I can use it on my lips w/ a mix of gloss is grt!! Used wet, application is a cinch (just use a water-based glycerin mixture to saturate e/s brush). I think I'll be more prone to use this wet because it just looks better (I love the fact that it looks like it MELTS into my skin).
Yea, the packaging can be a pain. Pretty fragile so be careful of where you leave it when it's open and how you hold it because it honestly can feel like you're holding nothing lol. But @ this price, can we REALLY complain? Just transfer to another container, no big. The pearl manias are impossible to find in beauty supply stores, so I bought mine off of ebay but if I ever do find them in a local store, please believe that I'm stacking up in every color that nyx has to offer (minus all the shipping/handling)....
