Review: NYX 10 Color Palette Champagne & Caviar


Quality: 5 out of 5
Packaging: 4 out of 5
Size: 4.5 inches long
Price: $9
Where To Buy: nyxcosmetics, cherryculture, nonpareilboutique, ebay
Would I Buy Again: Yes

This new palette from NYX is a must have. It has 10 neutral colors that I think will work for most skin tones. There are 3 matte colors (white, chocolate, black) & the rest are a mix of satin and shimmers. This palette has all the colors you need to make a natural everyday look or a smoky chocolate evening look. The white color is pigmented but sheer enough to work as a brow bone highlighter. All the other colors are very pigmented and have a silky texture.

The compact is glossy and chic, but shows finger prints easily. The entire inside lid is a mirror so you can see what you are doing very well. Its about 4.5 inches long but there is plenty of each color. My only complaint about this palette is that its a little hard to open and I'm afraid of breaking my nails. This is really a great product and perfect for traveling, runs between $8 - $10 depending on where you buy it.


PROS:
-pigmented
-can do several different looks
-works for many skin tones
-good for traveling
-has big mirror

CONS:
-case is hard to open & gets fingers prints

I just got that very same palette myself yesterday! I am a sucker for taupey-nudes, and rarely wear anything other than neutrals. I swear, I could use nothing else other than that palette for the rest of my life and be happy.

I used this palette today with a thin line of black liquid eyeliner and I LOVE it!

i ordered two from beautyshopoc.com for the 6.25 price but that was on July 10 and i havent recieved a confirmation/shipped email from them yet; that's pretty upsetting. i've emailed them twice asking about my order and have gotten no answer.
i checked their site today and the price for the palettes is now 8.25!

i wont be ordering from them again since i am not happy with their CS.

nonpareilboutique.com has them for $8, cheaper then cherryculture and nyxcosmetics.

I love NYX shadows. I have many of the trios. I find that they are all hard to open. I use a thin nail file to pop mine open. They are pretty shades.

Thank you sooo much for the swatches! I am really beginning to like NYX and I was eyeing off that palette last time I put in an order, but noone had any swatches of it yet so I didn't want to buy it and have it turn out to be crap.

I did however see your swatches of the NYX eyeshadow trios on specktra - thank you! I got the baby pink/cotton candy/spring flower trio because of your swatches! Although I couldn't read your watermark and I couldn't find your blog. I'm so glad I've found you now!

I think I have an unhealthy addiction to shimmery neutrals!

I think this is definitely going to be on my next order...

Thanks again for all the time you've spent swatching, I know that I really appreciate the time you've taken!
