NYX Roll On Shimmer

RATING (out of 5 stars): 3.5 stars

COST: $5

THE SKINNY: This is an affordable fun that delivers decent color with a lot of glittery sparkle.

The rollerball application works surprisingly well. Apply to your eyelids with an easy stroke. Be careful using a makeup brush, though. I tried to blend the shadow a little bit and found that it and the glittery basically brushed right off my lid, even with a good primer underneath it.

That being said, the shadow only stays in a place a few hours and gets horrible creases. Luckily, the tube is little smaller than the average tube of lip gloss and drops right into your purse for touch-ups.

I love the dark purple for it's drama, but it's hard to blend. So layer a darker shadow with a lighter shadow such as salmon or nude for the best effect.

KEEP OR TOSS: Keep.

CHECK IT OUT: NYX Roll On Shimmer comes in 16 colors.
