REVIEW: NYX SMOKEY EYESHADOW PALETTE



Hello my darlings!
Yes, i am obsessed with eyeshadow now...
:P

You know i hate it when i have 2 options and i have to choose one but i love them both,
have you ever been in that situation?

That happened when i wanted to choose between this smokey or the natural palette..

Then i decided to go for smokey as the natural ones wont enhance my eyes well.

I bought them at Mirielle Beaute
and as for the price, you can check her fb page :)

The packaging:

Well the palette comes like this but it has a sticker that sealed the opening of this palette :) and i did had a hard time opening it so it is very protective. Although the designs are pretty simple, the transparent lid on the upper half of the front shows the color which i like and the bottom half is the name of the palette.
It comes with a sponge applicator and nope there isnt any mirror. 


At the back contains the information, kindly click on it to read :)


The color swatch:

Probably, one of the reason why i decided to get this palette is because,
it has a few other colors like blue and purple, the natural colors the white and the darker beige and of course the smokey colors, dark grey and black.


The color pigmentation is medium- high and dont worry you can always layer them up!
The texture is soft and velvety. A little bit goes a long way so be careful when applying it.
It has a good coverage and blending ability :) which you will see on a few pictures below.


How it looks on me.
This is applied without any white base so without it, i think the colors are there
and i am sure with a white base, it will push the colors even more :)



Conclusion:
- Good texture and pigmentation
- easy to blend
- it is kinda hard with no mirror
-safe and protective packaging

Great review! I've been eyeing this palette for awhile, though I prefer the neutral one. Seems a reasonable purchase! Great blending, btw. :)
