Review: NYX Ultra Pearl Mania

NYX Ultra Pearl Mania Eye Shadows.

Quality: 5 out of 5
Packaging: 4 out of 5
Price: $1
Where to buy: cherryculture.com is cheapest

These were my very first pigments ever in life. I got the whole set on ebay for $25. There are 24 colors (some I swapped away, so there are only 22 here). These are $1 each at cherryculture.com. The quality of these are amazing. Lime is the only one that doesn't have fantastic pigment, but its a nice sheer green. All the others are very vibrant. What you see in the bottle is what you get on your face. The powder is very fine, all the colors are shimmery. It has very good lasting power and its easy to blend. The jars are really small but there is actually tons of product inside. The only con about these are that the opening is very small, so you need a tiny brush to get inside. Usually there is enough product in the lid that you don't have to worry about that. Or you can just transfere them to bigger jars. Other then that, these are fabulous.








On a side note, if you're into pressing pigments these won't work. Myself and several other people have tried with no success, they just fall apart.

These is probably my favorite NYX product (and I think the first I bought from it). I honestly think everyone needs to own Mocha, it's just the most perfect shade ever.

I agree that the packaging stinks, but I bought these containers called Buddy Cups (I got them at Micheal's Craft for about $3 or a little under:

They hold any pigments perfectly!

Would you mind swatching these? I'm really curious as to what they look like on your hand/arm/wherever. Thanks!
