Review :: NYX Cosmetics :: Part 2 Eyeshadow Palettes

Hey There all! :) So here is the continuation of my previous post. I had received the items all together, but figured it'd be better to split the posts up. 

The three eyeshadow palettes I chose to review from nyxcosmetics.com were:
(you can find these here: http://nyxcosmetics.com/index.php?pf=ESP10C)
- Velvet Rope Eyeshadow palette
- Champagne & Caviar eyeshadow palette
- Jazz night eyeshadow palette

The palettes are described on the NYXCosmetics.com website as:
"These 10 color palettes contains the original best selling NYX shadows in one sleek case for design, storage and mobility. Whether you are looking for various color combinations or a palette suited for your particular eye color, then look no further! As with our popular eyeshadows, this product offers bold colors, high pigmentation and lasting wear."


Velvet Rope Palette - $11.00 (on website) -
This palette has 10 eyeshadows and is one of their newest colors that will join the Runway collection. Most of you that have been followers of my blog know that i LOVE purple eyeshadows! and so of course i was super excited I had the chance to review this palette.. a variety of plums/purples for those ladies on the go and want to bring the palette in your purse for quick touchups. very easy to use! pigmented colors, such a variety in such a sleek small palette.



Packaging: 3.5/5
Nothing too fancy, which i like. I love how sleek and portable this palette is. it's really thin but at the same time sturdy enough to stay in your purse and not get  messed up. I love how it comes with a mirror!

Quality: 4/5
I LOVE the quality of the eyeshadows in this palette. maybe i'm a bit biased because i'm a purple eyeshadow/color lover lol.. but amazing quality for such an amazing price. the swatches above are without a base, can you imagine how vivid they would be WITH an eyeshadow base or primer? amazing!

Usage: 4/5
Easy to use, easy to bring on the go and love how it has a mirror with it. there was minimal fall out on like one or two eyeshadows, and same with chalkiness. but super easy to use. i like how convenient this palette is to carry around (have i said that enough lol)

Overall: 4/5
I'd definitely recommend this eyeshadow palette for those that love a variety of purples in one palette that you can easily tote around in your purse or clutch for easy touch ups. great for those starting out in makeup that want a palette that's easy to use, great quality and that's budget friendly.



Champagne & Caviar palette - $11.00 (on website) -
I chose this palette to review because i really do like neutral colors for days where i'm just too much in a hurry trying to get out the door i just like to put a simple wash of color on my lids and go. it's nothing compared to my urban decay naked palette, but it'll suffice. it's smaller, sleeker and works just as well.  great for those that need an office friendly make-up palette and don't feel like spending $40 for one. this has 10 eyeshadows that range from neutral and has a few darker shades for those that want to mix up their look and go from day to night.

don't mind my eyebrows lol ;D

Quality: 5/5
Amazing Quality for such budget friendly price. a variety of neutrals and browns to go with any look. some mattes, shimmery, frost/satin like textures in this palette. i really find myself reaching for this palette the most because i'm always in a hurry and find myself making endless neutral looks and i can go from day to night with this palette in a jif.

Overall: 4.5/5
I really like this palette because of the ease of use and just because i love neutrals and most days when i'm at work that's the look i do. and when i want to change it up and do dramatic smokey look, i can do it with this palette. i never had a problem with lasting power on this palette (nor the others) but i always wear a primer/base while using this. I definitely would recommend this palette for those that can't afford the naked palette but at the same time want something to use for every day looks.





Jazz Night palette - $11.00 (on website) -
this palette i chose because I don't have very many colors like this. I normally don't wear too many blues but i thought I needed a variety in my collection and I already love the quality of NYX products that i chose this palette. 



Packaging: 3.5/5
Nothing too fancy, which i like. I love how sleek and portable this palette is. it's really thin but at the same time sturdy enough to stay in your purse and not get  messed up. I love how it comes with a mirror! and a spongetip applicator for easy use when your on the go.

Quality: 3/5
This palette was the least pigmented of the bunch. althought the colors were lovely in pan, applied on the skin i had to really pack it on. but when i did layer it - the colors on top were mainly metallic finished. the colors on the bottom row were darker, slightly chalky. only one of the colors were just too glittery/chunky so there was a lot of fall out. 

Usage: 3/5
Easy to use, easy to bring on the go and love how it has a mirror with it. I had higher hopes for this palette because of the variety of colors, but i didn't quite like the finish of these without really packing them on. 

Overall: 3/5
Although this palette had a variety of dark colors to use for a variety of looks, the colors weren't as pigmented as i'd hope. but i think this palette would be better suited for those with cool tones... i'd recommend this if you like metallic colors, blues or are cool toned. 

I'm going to be having a giveaway (sponsored by NYX Cosmetics). I want to elaborate on the rules and so i'll be making a separate post for it! so STAY TUNED - you WON'T want to miss this giveaway! hope you all had an awesome weekend!
