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.

Seafoam Green

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.
