This one is perfect for a natural eye look. I bought this because I saw a video Emily Noel did on youtube talking about her favorite Nyx products and she mentioned this trio.

  1. Is a matte cream color eyeshadow.Perfect brow bone highlight.
  2. Is a light taupe beige with silver shimmer.
  3. Is a medium cool taupe with a matte finish. It gives the most natural shadow in the crease.

Grade: B

Is another all shimmer trio. The textures are smooth even though they all contain visibly large glitter particles.

  1. Is a pink with gold duochrome with gold glitter.
  2. Is a brown shimmer with gold glitter.
  3. Is a rust tinged brown shimmer eyeshadow with gold glitter.

Grade: A

Nyx can make a killer matte eyeshadow. These are not it. The first shade is the star of this palette. The middle and right shade are extremely patchy and take quite a bit of layering to get the true color that is seen in the pan.

  1. Is a light cloudy grey with micro gold and silver shimmer.
  2. Is a dark matte neutral brown.
  3. Is a a matte grey with blue undertones.

Grade: D
