NYX Violetta Eyeshadow

NYX Violetta Eyeshadow ($5.00 for 0.088 oz.) is a gold shimmered pink-purple with a satiny sheen. The color payoff is good, so it turns out mostly opaque, but the shimmer is more sparkled on top than it is truly embedded with the color, so it does result in some fall out. It reminded me a little of MAC Half-Wild when really sheered out, though darker. Urban Decay Purple Haze is fairly similar with a matte finish and more purple in it.

Because it is a brighter purple, despite the red undertones, it should translate into a bruise on the lid, though you’ll want to be careful on what you pair it with.  The texture is a little powdery with the loose sparkle adding a slight grittiness to the overall feel.  I’m not keen on this type of finish, because it is prone to fall out.  If you like the effect, I recommend using a sticker (more like a cream) base, and then press the product on, rather than sweeping or tapping.  Like other NYX eyeshadows, it doesn’t hold up all day on its own (looks a bit faded, slightly creased after six hours) but is better over a primer (no fading or creasing but there was continued fall out).
