NYX Hot Yellow Eyeshadow

NYX Hot Yellow Eyeshadow ($5.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a pale, pastel-like yellow with a frosted sheen. It has decent color payoff, but it’s not as dense as some other NYX eyeshadows. It also felt powderier and was less true-to-pan in terms of color; it looks much lighter, which could be a result of the higher pearl/frost content. Make Up For Ever #102 is a bit more pastel and has a matte finish. MAC Gorgeous Gold is a little yellower and has more iridescence.

While the texture was undeniably soft, it had a definite powdery feel that wasn’t easy to mitigate, even knowing that NYX’s eyeshadows are softer (compared to say MAC eyeshadows, which tend to be harder–not necessarily a bad thing!), so there was some fall out.  The color payoff could have been better, too, because it had an underlying sheerness and the softness of the shade, while providing for a smooth look, made it just as easy to blend out the color so it looked almost faded.  Without a base, this shade lasts four to five hours and then begins to look noticeably faded.  With a base, I had better results, though after nine hours, it did seem a bit faded.
