Tell me again and again, how could I resist the low prices of these NYX stuffs?
Well, I admit that I bought this palette without thinking much. All because of the low price, I knew that I have to buy at least one of it. Ohhh.. That's a really dangerous thinking.
Anyway, after much consideration.. I picked this color, Strike A Pose.
Texture - Alright, this one here is a little tricky. I tried 3 different ways of applying the eyeshadow and all 3 ways gave me different results! I was really surprised. At first, I tried swatching them with my bare fingers. With only one swipe, I couldn't get the pigmentation that I wanted. The swatches above were swiped in an up down, up and down manner. As for when I use the eyeshadow brush to apply the eyeshadows, to my horror, the colors just didn't show up. I was pretty upset at that time. I thought that might because the texture of the eyeshadow are a little more powdery and chalky (especially the lilac, black and white color) compared to the quality of their single eyeshadow. The 3rd way, I finally make use of the eyeshadow sponge applicator that came with the palette. Now, this one picked up the colors well and gave a pigmented finish on the lids. How surprising huh?
Lasting power - I don't experienced any bad creasing without a primer but I'm sure that they don't crease at all providing the lids were applied with eyeshadow primer beforehand eg. UDPP or TFSI.
Price - I bought this at $3 only. I think I can consider that as cheap?
Will repurchase? - I don't know if I would give another chance for some other colors from this range again because honestly speaking, I was a little disappointed with the inconsistency of the quality of some eyeshadows that appeared to be too powderish/ chalky.
