PEOPLE OF THE WORLD, YOU MUST TRY THIS.
If you haven't already guessed where I'm going with all of this, today's review is on a product that I cannot say enough good things about. The pigmentation is crazy, the finish is amazing, the texture is creamy and buttery soft. And it is only $6.
SIX DOLLARS PEOPLE!
So what is this miraculous pot of metallic wonderment? None other than the NYX Prismatic Shadow.
The NYX Prismatic Shadows come in 12 fierce shades and are perfect for adding a pop of color or some metallic shine to your look. I now own five of them: Girl Talk (a pearlescent pink), Golden Peach (a pink/gold duochrome), Fireball (a metallic burnt orange), Punk Heart (a deep amethyst purple), and Jaded (a deep forest green), swatched above in that order above. I was so pleasantly surprised to see that the other shades available were equally pigmented and beautiful. The darker shades especially pack a serious punch. Because the formula is so soft and creamy, these shadows are also incredibly easy to work with, and can be diffused out in the crease, or packed on for more intense color. The swatches above are also without any kind of primer, and will be quite long wearing even without a base. However, if you want to really make these shadows pop, using a primer or a cream shadow underneath will also help to make them look even more brilliant and metallic.
The packaging on these little singles is really quite cute. I love the bow detailing and the silver metal lids. However, if you're someone who owns a Z-Palette, you can also purchase just the pans for a dollar less if that is more convenient.
If you guys already own, or decide to go pick up your own Prismatic Shadows, I would love to hear what you think of them! Share a comment below, or tag me in a pic on Instagram (@littleblushingbirdie) or Twitter (@blushingbirdie) so I can see the amazing looks you've created.
