NYX Single Eyeshadow Swatches

5 years ago

I`m happy to say that my infected eye has improved and the redness significantly decreased today so I don`t have to go to work tomorrow looking sick. I still have to continue using the drops for a few more days. Aside from that I was going through my stuff yesterday because I finally decided that it was time I depot my single eyeshadows into the Z Palettes I have bought way back last Black Friday. Well guess what, that didn`t happen, lol, because I realized that I haven`t posted these NYX eyeshadows. I`m gonna have to do that before I depot them.

FYI, all swatches were done without using a primer.

~First set~
From left to right:
Lime Juice - light shimmery green with pronounced yellow undertone. Medium color pay off.
Earthy Shimmer - frosty/shimmery pale green with fine silver glitters and a cool undertone. Medium color pay off. This one feels a little chalky.
Yellow Pearl - light pearly yellow. Sheer.

~Second Set~
Top left: Golden Amber. Very pigmented matte dark brown with very fine gold glitters.
Top right: Smokie Mountain. Very pigmented matte dark green with very fine gold glitters.
Bottom left: Iced Mocha. Shimmery medium taupe. One of my all time favorite taupe eyeshadow. It`s quite pigmented and buttery too.
Bottom right: Yellow. Pale yellow with cool undertone. Semi matte. The texture of this one feels very buttery and nice.

~Thirt set~
Top left: Cork. Medium shimmery brown with subtle gold shimmers. This is very soft and pigmented.
Top right: Atlantic. A medium blue with a subtle sheen. Color pay off is medium.
Bottom left: Seafoam Green. I think the name is pretty spot on. This shadow is shimmery and a bit chalky. Color pay off is medium.
Bottom right: Highlight. Very pigmented and smooth and great for highlighting. Has a yellow undertone and very subtle sheen.

My overall thoughts on these NYX eyeshadows:
NYX single eyeshadows come in a few different finishes. I`d recommend to stay away from the glitter single eyeshadow because I had one and the fall out were a nightmare.
Some of these eyeshadows are a little too soft and can break easily. I`ve had a couple of them fall apart on me already.
Most of them have a pretty good color payoff (depending on the shade) and are quite easy to blend.
They last well throughout the day when I wear them with a primer.
They are pretty affordable and have a large color selection to choose from.
Having a lot of these can take up space with the packaging. I`m going to depot them so that they are easier for storage and easier to reach.

In case you were curious, here is my messy stash of single eyeshadows. See why I dread using my single eyeshadows? Just having to dig them out and put them back seems like a chore. The majority of these I have not even reviewed, smh.
By the way, does anyone know if baked eyeshadows can be depotted and how to? I have quite a handfull of them too.

Well that`s it for the NYX single eyeshadows that I own. Which one is your favorite?
