NYX Kiss in Casablanca Eyeshadow

NYX Kiss in Casablanca Eyeshadow ($5.00 for 0.09 oz.) is an ocean blue with a soft, frosted finish. What I love about this particular shade of blue is the overall soft, muted quality to it, but it hasn’t diminished the quiet vibrancy of the color at all. It’s like a mix of MAC Freshwater and MAC Deep Truth. MAC Pure Creation is a bit similar, too.

The eyeshadow has a really soft, powdery quality that can result in fall out if you aren’t aware of it (I also think you end up with more product than you need for application, because a little goes a long way). It has great color payoff and melts against skin for a really smooth result. NYX says these will wear “for many hours,” though I will say they tend to look faded after six or seven hours if used without a base. This particular shade I didn’t have any fading issues with when I used it over an eyeshadow base.

A-
All in all, this is a really nice budget-friendly blue that packs plenty of color! If you're a fan of blues, this is worth a look, because I think that slightly soft color is hard to find.

    This is JUST the kind of blue I’ve been looking for lately! Definitely very Hanukkah appropriate, lol.

    NYX makes the most gorgeous blues. Lanikai is my favorite.

    would you use this for a smokey blue look, or is it not dark enough?

    Thx! I finally got my hands on the NYX Milk crayon but was’t sure about buying the eye shadow. Sometimes spending money on the cheap stuff and run into the hundreds. A whole bunch of cheap products hear and there add up when I just could have spent the money on MUFA or M.A.C.

  10. Most of the NYX eyeshadows I have don’t perform nearly as well as this, but I haven’t bought any of the pressed ones since 2009. Do you think they’ve changed their formula?

    • I find that the singles are better than the ones in the palettes, but I don’t know if they’ve changed the formula on these at all!

      • I totally agree! Go for the singles and stay away from the palletes. Much better results with the singles. I’ve also had good results with the trios. I have however purchased two pallete and returned :(

  13. What a beautiful color!!! striking
