NYX Eyeshadow Trio in Golden/Rust/Walnut Bronze , Review and Swatches

NYX Eyeshadow trio

NYX Eyeshadow Golden / Rust/ Walnut Bronze

I can buy eyeshadows and then I can buy some more. I am beyond addicted. Like just right now I am feeling so tempted to buy Inglot eyeshadows after seeing them on Temptalia’s blog. I am going to Inglot the first thing I land in Bombay. Maybe I can visit Inglot first and then go home. Both Inglot and my home are close to the airport. Does that sound like a plan?

Maybe there is something like Makeupaholics Anonymous. Is there something like that? I should enroll myself there, save some money instead of spending it on makeup and buy a car. Ok I am rambling. Lets talk about the NYX eyeshadow trio.

This  is again one of my credit card friendly purchases from NYX. I ordered this from Cherry Culture a while back. All 3 colors are amazingly smooth and easy to blend. And I love that I have neutral and bright colors in one handy pallete. The 3 colors in this pallete are Golden , rust and Walnut Bronze. All 3 are permanent shades in the NYX single eyeshadow collection. Golden is a dull gold color- not very bright and quite wearable. Rust is a reddish pink color- more red than pink. It works wonderfully for Indian looks. I like to use this with a light hand though. It is quite pigmented. Walnut Bronze is my favorite color of this trio is a very pretty shimmer taupe color.

The Good?

  • I love all the three colors especially Rust and Walnut Bronze.
  • I love the texture of these eyeshadows- very pigmented, soft and buttery smooth.
  • I love the packaging. Very sleek. It also has a small mirror but its not of much use but it is cute nonetheless.

The Not So Good?

  • All the three colors are shimmery. A perfect eyeshadow pallete should have at least one matte eyeshadow I feel.

Makeup-Mantra Rating 9/10

I love NYX products a lot especially their eyeshadows. I like to take this pallete with me when I travel since it has a mix of neutral and bold colors. I love the Walnut Bronze color – it’s a pretty everyday neutral color.I definitely recommended this eyeshadow trio to all eyeshadow loving girls.
Have you tried any of the NYX eyeshadow trios? Which one is your favorite?

  2. I love NYX shadows! If you want some matte shades, you should try Brown and Dark Brown. I usually buy matte shadows from companies like Revlon and Stila.

  3. Pretty colors but I like matte more :|
