NYX Single E/S: Golden Review

IMG_1649-copy

I remembered NYX as being my first trusted makeup product when I was still starting as a beauty blogger/youtuber. I’m really really happy to know that NYX has finally decided to open it’s first store here in Manila. Having their actual store at SM City North Edsa is best for me since you’re given the assurance that the products that you’re getting are all authentic and safe to use. So today, I’ll be doing a review on their Single E/S that I got from The Great Northern Sale last July 19.

PROS:
– Very cute packaging
– Affordable
– Doesn’t flake and crease
– Lasts long
– Easy to blend
– Comes with 160 colors to choose from

CONS:
– Not as pigmented as it looks like in the pot.
I would need to swatch it several times to get it’s real color. You would need to prime before applying this though.
– Doesn’t have an applicator with it

RE-PURCHASE?
Absolutely! I’m looking forward to trying out the other 159 shades.

    It looks good on you! 🙂 I think single shadows from NYX are way more pigmented than their palettes which is true on this color. How much did you get this? I'm thinking if I will buy online or visit them at SM North.

    I've been so curious about NYX though I'm not really into make-up thingy. I'm jealous to those gals who are able to put eyeshadow daily.. 😀 Maybe I should practice too 🙂

    Can't wait to check out the local store of NYX here in PH. I love the color you got. You can definitely make use of it in almost any kind of makeup look you'd like to sport! 🙂

    it looks washed on your lids, you are right you might need to swatch it more to get the color. I am happy to see regular beauty products in here 🙂

    I love the look you created! I know it's smoky but it looks so soft too. It's really good to live around/in Quezon City. Everything is already there! :((( (I'm from Cebu)

    I didn't know they have a store already! And to think I live near Sm North pa man din… haha. I've always wanted to try Nyx but I always saw it being sold online and I'm a bit wary about doing transactions there. I mean, I still prefer holding the actual product before I purchase it. 😛

    lovely summer gold glow! I enjoy their blushers and bronzers just not their eyeliner. I always need to use primer or they are all over my face =)
