It includes pigmented eyeshadows in edgy, neutral tones, blendable highlighting and contouring shades, and beautiful brow powders. Yes! You can create a whole look using one sleek palette. Hold on, this heart just skipped a beat.
This palette, like most NYX palettes, is amazing!!! If you love any of the NYX most recent palettes like the Avant Pop Palette, you will love this one. This palette is really good!! It has everything you will ever need for many different looks. You can use all of these shades on your eyes and in many different ways, they are so versatile. I love all of the shades in this palette!
All of these shades are so pigmented, you can see by the swatches. They also work so well with your brush and blend really nicely. The matte shades in these palettes are my favorite. The shimmer shades are nice too but I just love matte eyeshadows. Do you see how black that shade is?? YEAH!
The contour and highlight shades are so amazing as well! They are so pigmented and the perfect shades.
The only downfall is they are a little powdery and there’s some fallout, but I can live with that.
This palette is totally worth it and if you can get it from Ulta with the buy 1 get 1 50% off, it is even more worth it!
This palette contains 15 matte eyeshadow shades and 4 eyeshadow brushes. I can’t find this online but looked everywhere. This is a new palette from Hard Candy that I found at Walmart.
For the drugstore and $10 this palette is not that bad at all. I love matte palettes and nothing is better than fining a drugstore matte palette. It is a pretty good palette and you get a good amount of shades. I really love the shades that they picked. You have a full row of light matte shades, some warm shades, cool shades and some nice deep shades.
As far as the formula goes, it is ok. I wouldn’t say it is the best formula but it definitely isn’t bad. When I first swatched them with my finger, the formula was SOOO smooth and creamy. I have never touched a drugstore palette with such a smooth formula. They swatch really smoothly and blend pretty well. I will say that when you use a brush they aren’t as pigmented. They are a little lighter but I still think they are really pretty!!
The only downfall is they are a little powdery and have some fallout. I also wasn’t impressed with the deep shades. They are a little too light for me and they don’t really build up. I will say that the middle row is my favorite!! Overall for the price this is a good palette especially if you are starting with building up a makeup collection.
Create a spectrum of out-of-this-world eye looks with the Cosmic Metals Shadow Palette– a new eyeshadow set inspired by NYX Cosmetics Professional Makeup’s beloved Cosmic Metals Lip Cream. Powered by six pigment-packed eyeshadows, this gorgeous set loads your lids with rich, metallic color and incredible color payoff.
This palette was just okay, it didn’t really WOW me. Partly because I LOVE matte shadows and these are all shimmery shadows. If you love shimmery shadows or the colors of these shadows then you will love this palette.
The eyeshadow formula is really good. It is nice and creamy and pigmented. these are dry packed shadows but they almost feel wet when you apply them on the skin. It seems like that happens with most foiled shadows though. They blend really nicely and look beautiful on the lids. They will crease if you don’t use a primer. But other than that I think they are great drugstore foiled shadows. SWATCHES:

I love this palette!!! I feel like this palette is so versatile and can be used on so many skin tones. This would be perfect for a a makeup kit or just anyone who loves variety.
There are two different formulas – the top row is shimmer/satin and the bottom row is matte. I personally love matte blushed more and these matte blushes are amazing! All of the blushes are amazing, they are so soft and so pigmented!! They really glide not the face so nicely and blend really well.
I honestly have nothing bad to say about this palette. It is totally worth the money and even better if you can get it for half off at Ulta.
From sheer to full, your ideal coverage is just drops away with NYX Cosmetics’ Total Control Drop Foundation! Fine-tune this velvety, matte foundation with the included dropper: simply adjust the number of drops until you create the look you’re feelin’ today. Want more coverage? Add more drops! Buff expertly using the Total Control Drop Foundation Brush for a seriously smooth finish.
I bought mine in Natural and True Beige since those were the two that seemed to be not too dark and not too light. The only problem is they are SO yellow! As you can see from my swatches they definitely pull a yellow tone, even the Natural shade. That was kinda of disappointing. I think the Natural shade should have been more neutral. I didn’t see many cool tones or neutral tones, so you might have to mix it with another foundation if you are cool or neutral.
I have very dry skin and for me I feel like these just didn’t work. It attached to my dry patches and made my skin look cakey and didn’t wear throughout the day like I would have expected. I will say that it is medium to full coverage and covers everything nicely. This does settle into fine lines and pores.
I think that if you have oily skin this might work better for you but it just didn’t do it for me. I far prefer the Cover FX Custom Cover Dropsfor my skin.
Let me know if you have tried them and if you like them.
Need a filter for that selfie? #LookNoFurther. NYX Cosmetics’ Perfect Filter Shadow Palettes feature ten vibrant shades of their amazing eyeshadow. Available in striking color combinations, each collectable Perfect Filter Shadow Palette is inspired by a different photo filtering effect.
I will say that these palettes are just as good as the reviews mentioned above! NYX really knows what they are doing when it comes to eyeshadow formula. These shadows are SO creamy and pigmented. They do have some fall out like you would get with a LORAC eyeshadow but I don’t care. I can deal with a little bit of fallout because they are so amazing! These blend so nicely especially the matte shades. The matte shades in these palettes are my favorite. The shimmer shades are nice too but I just love matte eyeshadows.
I think all of these palettes are totally worth it but I will say my favorite is the Gloomy Days Perfect Filter Shadow Palette. NYX has two more that I want to buy but for right now Ulta only carries these three.
