I have been incredibly loyal to my Inglot eyeshadows since I got them but I really wanted to swatch the NYX shadows I own because, again, it's hard to order stuff online. I did buy all of mine from cherryculture.com because that was the cheapest place I could find them. Keep in mind I have had these for quite a while now, at least a year and a half (except Black, which I had to repurchase because my husband knocked the first one into the toilet haha and I was not using it after that!!!).
I really like this shadow. The texture is really smooth and the color is beautiful.
I like this shadow too. It has the same texture as Rust
Oh, my beautiful Morocco, what has happened to you???
Haha this is a beautiful blue/purple color. The more you blend it out, the more purple it becomes.
|"Red Bean Pie"|
Um... I don't get the name. It's a lot more purple than red. Nice texture again.
Beautiful color. I like this one.
I love this shadow. I use it almost every single day. Unfortunately, I dropped it on the floor and this happened.
Beautiful color. It's kinda hard to work with, but I think the color is worth it.
A light shimmery pink. It's nice but not a favorite.
Shimmery again. I'd like it more if it were matte.
This is definitely not a true red. It's too light and pink. It's a pretty color, but not red.
This shadow is a little tough. It's basically a golden frost but it's not super frosty. It's not the easiest to work with, though.
I bought this color because Marlena (from Makeup Geek) had it on her list of must own NYX shadows. I hate it. The color is pretty but it's got chunky glitter in it and it's chalky. Not nice.
I do like this shadow, I just wish it was slightly less yellow. I rarely use this because of how yellow it is but the texture is really nice.
Yup, this is right there with "Vanilla Shimmer" chalky, glittery, chunky... yuck.
Eh. This isn't the most pigmented shadow in the world. It's ok. I don't think I'd buy it again.
This color reminds me sooo much of Inglot 371 in the pan! Unfortunately, it is nothing like it . Not the color and definitely not the pigmentation or texture.
|I tried to compare these colors because they're similar|
These shadows are so hit and miss. I love some of them but hate others. They're not terribly expensive so if you hate one, it's not the worst thing in the world. I hope these swatches help someone out there who's looking into purchasing some NYX shadows! Don't get Vanilla Shimmer!!!! Don't do it to yourself haha!
And a look I did using exclusively NYX shadows
Haha I was DYING to put some Inglot 395 on my browbone and add some 376 to the "Deep Charcoal" and some 392 to the "Red Bean Pie"! But I didn't. I resisted. I just can't help myself haha. I have an Inglot addiction. It's a problem haha. I also used "Highlight" to blend "Black" in the outer v, and "Vanilla Shimmer" on my browbone and then I blended it away because I hate it haha.
