Swatches: NYX Smokey Shadow Collection Palette

Hey Everyone!

Today I have a post featuring the NYX Smokey Shadow Collection palette. I was dying to get this palette after watching Leesha's (xsparkage) video on the Mortal Instruments Parallel Worlds Kit Review! I didn't find that I was too interested in the entire collection, but this palette looked gorgeous so I just had to try it out!

The Smokey Shadow palette contains 6 shadows ranging from dark to light. Although most of the shadows (except for the black which contains glitter) look matte, they actually have a satin finish.

Now for the swatches!
  • All photos were taken in artificial lighting and shadow swatches were done with flash.
  • All swatches were done over Too Faced Shadow Insurance. 

My Thoughts:

I found these shadows to be a bit stiff to work with, especially the blue and the purple. I do absolutely love the purple, bronze, and the gray shadows! I definitely think that this palette is worth checking out!

The Smokey Shadow Collection palette can be found on the NYX website for $7.00! I was also able to find this palette at my local Ulta for $6.99.

Have any of you tried this palette? Which shadows are your favorite?
