|NYX Perfect Filter Shadow Palette (Olive You)|
In a sea of oranges and reds, I was ready for a change and this NYX Perfect Filter Shadow Palette in Olive You did not disappoint. I saw it in store and decided to pick it up since I had heard positive things about the "Perfect Filter" palettes. I don't buy alot of drugstore eyeshadow, but I do purchase affordable shadows. I wanted to see how these NYX palettes compared.
This palette has both matte and metallic shades and the pan sizes are really large. At first glance, I saw a transition matte brown and a cream shadow which is something that I look for in a palette. The olive shades really stuck out to me and I couldn't wait to try them out. The mattes are very easy to blend and build, and the shimmers are very nice. I like to build my shades rather than having a very pigmented shade that I'm scared to use. One shade does seem to be more of a topper shade rather than a lid shade. In the swatches you will see the light green shimmer shade, swatched after the brown matte isn't very pigmented on its own. The green shades are what really drew me in and they are great.
Lasting power was very good, I don't normally have issues with shadows lasting on my eyes. I always use a primer and will also use a glitter glue for my shimmer shades. I don't like when my shimmer shade transfers to my crease, and this really helps out. The shimmers apply well with a brush and fingers. Fallout isn't too bad, but I do have to be careful with the darker shades. I did also buy the Rustic Antique version, and will review it once I've had time to play around with it.
