NYX Orange Eyeshadow

NYX Orange Eyeshadow

NYX Orange Eyeshadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is tangerine orange with a lighter peach-orange shimmer. The finish is more of a frosted, but it doesn’t read heavy. It’s a very wearable orange because of the softness in the color. Surprisingly, I couldn’t find a dupe among all of these orange eyeshadows. Givenchy Candide Garden was the closest but still darker. Most shades that were in similar in lightness had a pink-tone or really gold sheen (think MAC Melon).

The color is true-to-pan and opaque on the skin, while the texture is dense, buttery, and very soft without being powdery or loose (which is probably the most common issue of NYX’s eyeshadow line–but many shades are just fine, such as this one).  Without a base, this shade wore for seven hours, but with a base, I had no wear problems after eight hours.  This is definitely one of the better NYX eyeshadows I’ve tried, and personally, I’m always in awe when I can’t think of dupes for a shade!

    It reminds me of an orangish color from one of macs old promotions. It had an neon orange case…I wish I could only remember.

    Hmm…based on what the swatch looks on my screen, I think there’s a shade in the Coastal Scents Shimmer 88 palette that’s close to it. I have a lot of really nice eye shadow, so I don’t use that as much as I did when I first got it, but it’s a nice thing to have on hand to haul out when you need a specific shade that you might not have elsewhere.

    Wow that’s beautiful! I would use it as a lid color and put a brown in the crease. What colors would you do?

  10. Love NYX! The fun thing about this shadow is that it can also double up as a blush!

    It reminds me so much of Inglot 407 eyeshadow. And I bet Inglot is way better.

    This eyeshadow is beautiful. Can someone reccomend some more beautiful shades ( that are longlasting ) from NYX range?

  13. Ooh, that’d be a pretty blush!
