I love NYX eyeshadows so of course I had to pick all 4 up so I could swatch and review them for you guys.

Ultimate Shadow Palette features 16 expertly coordinated eye shadows housed in one perfectly portable palette. Available in unique color combinations, each Ultimate Shadow Palette features captivating textures and shades that range from never-boring neutrals to sultry smokies to bright color pops.

My YouTube video review is also up!




These palettes are awesome! If you like the NYX Avant Pop palette or the NYX Full Throttle (see my review and swatches here) palettes, then you will LOVE these because they are pretty similar. These shadows are buttery, creamy, pigmented, blendable and the colors are gorgeous. As you can see from my swatches they definitely pack a punch with their pigment. They glide on the eyes nicely and last all day. The brights palette is so amazing! Those bright colors really come off nicely on the skin. My favorites would have to be the Cool Neutrals and the Smokey & Highlight palettes.

I will say that not all the shades are the same. They aren’t consistent with the formula. The mattes are really nice and some of the shimmer/glitter shades can be a little patchy. But I feel like this is a really good deal for 16 shadows! I think they are definitely worth picking up!

These last all day and do not crease. I always wear a primer though.


Here are my swatches:

NYX Warm Neutrals

NYX Brights

NYX Cool Neutrals

NYX Smokey & Highlight

  1. so glad to hear these are similar to the formula of the avant pop palettes !

    i’m really loving the warm neutrals & brights .

    hopefully there’ll be a nyx sale soon so i can grab those two .

    thank you for swatching/reviewing !

  2. You mentioned the Avant Pop and Full Throttle palettes. Have you tried the To Go palettes? (the ones with eyeshadow, blush, bronzer, and highlight) If so, what are your opinions? Sorry this isn’t very much related to the post.
