THE SKINNY: NYX products seem hit or miss. (The Loose Pearl Shadow was a bust, but the Roll-On Shimmer is fun.) But this eye shadow, which came in a recent Ipsy bag, is not worth the $4.50.
Now I'll be the first to admit that I'm spoiled by Tarte and Urban Decay shadows, which don't come cheap. But I like my shadow to have a little weight to it, so it goes on creamy.
The NYX shadow is chalky. When I tried to apply it, the shadow flew everywhere, even with primer. It didn't last long on my lids, either.
The color Ipsy sent, Lanikai, is a horrible powder blue that isn't right for my skin tone.
KEEP OR TOSS: Toss. Bad color. Bad product.
CHECK IT OUT: If you want to try it, NYX Single Eye Shadow comes in 51 colors.
