Ever since I went to Ulta and discovered NYX eyeshadows, I have been in love. I currently own six of the little potted wonders, all in the neutral family of course. I think neutral is the way to go when first trying a product. If you like the boring browns, beiges, and taupes, there is a good chance you will like the more exciting colors as well down the road. I actually think NYX shadows are quite comparable to MAC, and for a fraction of the price. I find them to be soft and pigmented. My only complaint seems to be the fall-out issue, but I get fall-out from almost every shadow i've tried, ranging from low-end brands to the higher-end variety. A good tip is to do your eye makeup before applying your foundation and concealer in order to avoid getting loose bits of shadow all over your cheeks. Then, once you are done applying your eye makeup, you can simply sweep off any excess that has fallen with a fluffy brush. If you haven't tried NYX, I really recommend you do. Besides Ulta,  http://www.cherryculture.com/  carries the entire NYX line, as well as http://www.nyxcosmetics.com/


Left to Right: Dark Brown, Iced Mocha, Aloha, My Favorite Color, Sahara, Geisha.
~All are shimmery except for Dark Brown, which is a matte~



Left to Right, the same order as above. Aren't they pretty, pretty? The last four are great all-over lid colors!

Happy Sunday,
