During Generation Beauty, I received a new treat from NYX Cosmetics – The Suede Shadow Palette. This gorgeous, limited edition palette comes with 8 metallic and pearlized jewel-toned eyeshadows, with a range of colors that fit right into summer and stays with you throughout the fall.
I love NYX lippies and single eyeshadows, but I usually skip the collection eye palettes because some of them feel lower in quality – they feel a little shoddy. It looks like they amped up the quality of the palettes because I was very surprised and pleased with the eyeshadows in the Nyx Suede Collection.
The case is a lightweight cardboard box with a clear plastic cover. I think my tiny robo-dwarf hamster weighs more than the case, which is great! I travel a lot, so I don’t expect it to last through many trips before the cardboard breaks or gets squished down. If you’re not a traveler or plan to leave this at home, you shouldn’t have any problems with the cardboard breaking.
The eight colors in the Suede Shadow Palette are all gorgeous shades. I love the range of jewel tones – these colors can take you from boho chic to rock star glam. And the gold shade is the PERFECT gold – not too yellow or green, just a fab solid gold hue.
The eyeshadows are nicely pigmented and apply smoothly to my lid. I have to work with colors #6 and #8 more because they are a little less pigmented, but not enough to skip this treasure. I just add and blend a little more.
On my first use, I briefly played around with this palette to create the simple look below:
I had minimal fallout and love the soft texture of the colors, so this is definitely a keeper!
