NYX has always been my favorite brand because of its wide range of products. It has so much variety to choose from and the quality is top-notch as well. I recently tried one of its eyeshadow palette and I’ve a lot to say about it. Continue reading to know how NYX Lid Lingerie palette performed!
Product Name: NYX Lid Lingerie Shadow Palette
Price & Quantity: $10 for 6×1.37g
Shelf Life: 24 months
Availability: It is available online. Shop on Amazon.
Ingredients: In the image below.
Packaging & Appearance: The eyeshadow comes in a rectangular black palette which has a transparent lid. There are total 6 pans which means 6 different shades. It doesn’t come with a mirror which I feel is okay because otherwise the aesthetics of the palette would have been ruined. Also, there’s no applicator in this palette which is a bummer.
Texture: The texture of the NYX shadows are very smooth and buttery to touch which I really like. It doesn’t feel too dry or flaky.
Shade: This palette has six shades –
1. First one is an off-white or cream-ish kind of shade which can be used for highlighting or as a base on the lids.
2. This is a very pretty lavender shade. This needs a little bit of layering on my lids to show up.
3. Next up, is a very warm reddish-brown shade.
4. Fourth one is an earthy brown cool toned shade.
5. This is a peach shade which doesn’t show up on my lids even after layering. If you do not have pigmented lids, it might show up on your lids.
6. Last one is a brown shade but it is more warm than the previous one.
Staying Power: It stays for about 5-6 hours which is a pretty decent time. The lighter colours in this palette do fade away earlier than the rest.
Pigmentation: The pigmentation is amazing. I have just swatched them once in the pictures and the colour pay off is amazing. All the colors are equally pigmented.
Finish: The finish of the eye shadows are completely matte.
Smell: It has a very slight chemical fragrance only if you sniff hard. I would rather say no fragrance at all.
Swatch: In the image below.
My Experience: I have loved using this NYX Lid Lingerie palette for my daily go-to looks because the colours in this palette are very subtle. I wouldn’t really say that a lot of looks can be created but it does have pretty nice shades.
The texture is really good and it is very smooth and buttery. It does give a bit of kickback when applied with a brush. But it’s not too much and there isn’t any fall out. The eyeshadow is pigmented and blends easily on the lids, not chalky.
Since some of the shades are light in colour they need to be build up on the lids since I have pigmented eyelids. Although I do apply concealer before applying the shadows but still I feel the need to build up light shades for maximum pigment. But it might be different for people with different skin tones.
1. Smooth texture
2. Nicely pigmented
4. No fall outs
5. Matte finish
6. Decent staying power
1. Lighter colours might not show properly
2. No applicator
Jhalli Diva Verdict: 3/5
Will I Repurchase?
Umm, probably no! It is because of the shades. I am not a big fan of the combination of shades in this palette. I wish there was a different set of shades available in this palette to choose from. Although I love the formula, but the shades kinda shut me off.
Do I Recommend?
Yes, I do recommend this but only when you like the shades in this palette. The formula is amazing but as I said the combination of shades is not my personal favourite. So if you like that, then by all means you can go ahead and purchase it.
Overall Summary: I like the NYX Lid Lingerie palette as a whole. I love the formula as matte shadows can be chalky but this one is not chalky at all. The texture and pigment is amazing as well. They look beautiful on the eyelids. Individually the shades are good but as a combination I don’t like them much. The palette is compact and easy to carry. Overall, I like to use the palette but only go ahead if you like the combination of shades.
