NYX Seafoam Green Eyeshadow

NYX Seafoam Green Eyeshadow ($5.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a green-teal with a white frosted sheen and chunkier silver sparkle. It’s a bit like MAC Aquadisiac, which also has a similar grit. Urban Decay Minx has a darker appearance, almost leans less green. Make Up For Ever #168 is much more intense and smoother. It’s lighter and more teal compared to MAC Jealousy Wakes.

It looks similar to how it does in the pan, actually–you can see a fair amount of white pearl in the eyeshadow from the get-go, which is what gives it that softer, light color. I like the muted quality of the shade, and it would work for someone who’s a little less fearless when it comes to color! What I didn’t like was the sparkly grit to it, which made it less lovely to use, as it tended to fall out underneath the eye. It could be more pigmented, too — you can see it’s not fully opaque and even in the swatch. When I tested Seafoam Green, it wore for six hours before it started to fade somewhat without a base, but it seemed fine after eight hours when applied over an eyeshadow base.

It's actually a good dupe for MAC Aquadisiac, and I like the texture and payoff of this shade better, so if you're always had an eye on that one, you may like this one more! For $5.00, I think it's good, but in the grand scheme of things, it's an average eyeshadow.

  1. Aquadisiac is one of 5 mac shades I own but it still like this one for it’s more teal tilt.

  2. Andrea

    for new years Eve I was wearing Lagoon Sparkle, A similar color but this has glitter on it

  3. It’s so pretty, I just wish for a little more pigmentation.

  4. The colour looks very pretty, but I think I would rather buy MAC Aquadisiac because this one looks on the powdery side. I’d rather buy the more expensive product and get better quality.

  5. Very pretty! I can see this on my lower lash line.

  6. This color is very pretty :)
    I have been searching for a MAC jealousy wakes dupe for ages but could never find one. I wanted to buy it when the collection came out but unluckily it was all sold out :(

  7. I like cheap and I like seafoam.

    I love NYX shadow colours, but I find them all so powdery I’m always scared they will get all over my face as I apply them.

  9. Love NYX for an inexpensive MAC dupe. You can find them at Ulta and most of the time all NYX are buy one, get one 1/2 off :)

  10. Amy

    YES! NYX SHADOWS! PLEASE REVIEW MORE NYX SHADOWS IF YOU CAN. I HEARD THEY HAVE QUITE SOME DUPES FROM MAC :)

  11. Tiffany

  12. Andrea

    Christine what are some of your fave antique gold eyeshadow? I want to get a good one to start with since I haven’t got any!

    By the way, thank you for this amazing blog. It helps so much :)

    Great colour, unfortunately, this doesnt suit me at all…

  14. Hmm, I don’t think this color would ever work on me, but I’m tempted.
