NYX Single Eyeshadows

NYX Single Eyeshadows are by far the most impressive drugstore brand out there, it can be considered THE budget brand. They are available in 160 different shades and it can be said that many can be considered dupes of more expensive brands, such as MAC.

Although the shadows are $5.50, you can always find offers in Ulta, and if there is no store near you also has great prices (and ships internationally)! So the shadows are $5.50 for 0.07oz, while MAC shadows sell for $14.50 for 0.05oz. There is also a colour selection that rivals MAC, needless to say it is impossible to leave the store without something! So if there are any colours you’d like to try but aren’t sure… NYX is the way to go!

Something I love about these eye shadows is that they are super pigmented. They come in a wide variety of neutral and vibrant colours. And there are several different finishes, so you can choose from sheer, matte, metallic, shimmer, glitter and frost.

The packaging consists of simple black plastic packaging, with a window allowing you to view the eyeshadow. Although it may not look very fancy, it is solid. Some consider it a cheaper version of MAC’s packaging.

In short, NYX is one of those brands that really gets me with their product quality and budget friendly prices so, to be honest, everything I have to say about NYX so far is positive.
