NYX 9 Color Custom Eyeshadow Palette - Purples

I just love it when different brands bring out eyeshadows in regular packaging and also refills. NYX is one of those brands that recognize that us makeup artists like to customize palettes to allow for easy storage and portability. NYX offer a good range of good quality eyeshadows for a good price. 

There are two different types of eyeshadow they offer in the refill format - Prismatic and Hot Singles. I've never tried the Prismatic range, only the Hot Singles. I got only really well with these colors before so decided to get an empty 9 color palette and fill it with purple shades.

The colors I got were - Lolita (Matte Violet), Flirt (Matte Light Purple), Harlequin (Iridescent Purple), Epic (Iridescent Violet), Kama Sutra (Pearly Violet), Ultraviolet (Matte True Violet), Maneater (True Violet), Arrogance (Violet Smoke) and Moon Rock (Sparking Black).


Top - Lolita, Flirt, Harlequin
Middle - Epic, Kama Sutra, Ultraviolet
Bottom - Maneater, Arrogance, Moon Rock


The colors I chose for the palette can be worn on their own or blended together. I liked to use the paler colors such as Lolita and Flirt as base colors. I then layered the darker colors on top and blended them together. Both mattes and shimmers were great, very often mattes can be a bit dry, not these ones. Even though the mattes were good, the shimmers were better.

Blending was just as easy and all colors had plenty of pigment in them and stayed on all day without creasing. 

Purples are such great colors and these ones are no exception. The colors were £2.50 each and the empty palette was £4.50.
