If you’re after a palette that will work as an all year rounder but don’t want to pay the high-end prices of £25 or more than I can’t recommend the NYX Ultimate Eyeshadow Palette in ‘Warm Neutrals’ enough. This palette is £16.00 which you will find in most Boots stores now, it includes 16 shades with a range from mattes to shimmers, light tones to dark tones to create a smokey eye for any occasion.The shimmer shades are really pigmented unlike the matte shades which you have to build up but they both blend really nicely due to the creamy powdery texture, like most eyeshadows I have to wear with a primer as I get really oily eyelids and without one, the shades collect in my crease and don’t last all day on me. If you don’t have oily eyelids I can’t really say if these will last all day on you so you might have to try it out for yourself.The packaging is really lightweight as it’s made of plastic and I probably would have prefered it if the inside lid was a massive mirror as this would be really handy when travelling but it’s nice to be able to see the shades through the clear lid as I’m more likely to pick this up to my other eyeshadows as I can see what I want.
Overall it is a real winner for me as I love neutral colours such as browns, golds, coppers, taupes and it’s nice to experiment with some cranberry and dark purple shades. You can create so many different looks with the ranges of lights to darks which is why I think it is a good all year rounder to have in your collection if you’re a neutral lover like me.
