Make Me Blush

NYX Make Me Blush Nude Matte Eyeshadow ($4.50 for 0.05 oz.) is a muted red with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. I noticed that while it was definitely matte, this particular shade seemed to let my natural skin come through a bit more noticeably so it wasn’t as flat as other shades in the range. It had good color coverage that applied evenly and blended out easily, though it tended to sheer out a bit without a primer. This texture was soft, a little dry, but it wasn’t problematic to work with. On me, it lasted well for seven hours on me.

Formula Overview

$4.50/0.052 oz. - $86.54 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "packed with pigment" with a "soft and smooth" texture for "seamless blending." Most shades had decent to good pigmentation with most being semi-opaque but buildable. The textures were soft, a little drier and dusty, but blendable. They applied better over eyeshadow primer as they had a tendency to sheer out a little too readily on bare skin. On me, most of the eyeshadows lasted between six and eight hours before fading noticeably.

Maybe Later

NYX Maybe Later Nude Matte Eyeshadow ($4.50 for 0.05 oz.) is a soft, yellowed brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It was intensely pigmented with a soft, smooth, and velvety texture that was a touch powdery in the pan but applied evenly to bare skin and maintained its intensity/coverage. The color wore well for seven and a half hours on me before I noticed some fading.

NYX Not Today Nude Matte Eyeshadow ($4.50 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium brown with warm, red undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage that was buildable to full coverage with two layers. The eyeshadow was slightly dusty in the pan, but it was soft and smooth enough that it remained blendable and easy to work with over bare skin. I noticed slight fading with this shade after seven and a half hours of wear.

Shameless

NYX Shameless Nude Matte Eyeshadow ($4.50 for 0.05 oz.) is a deep, blue-leaning teal with cool undertones and a matte finish. It was richly pigmented with a soft, smooth texture that was a little firmer in the pan compared to other shades (but not powdery or dusty). The eyeshadow applied evenly to bare skin and blended out fairly easily. It wore well for eight hours before fading slightly on me.

Skinny Dip

NYX Skinny Dip Nude Matte Eyeshadow ($4.50 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium, rosy mauve with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation that was buildable to semi-opaque coverage without a primer but was a shade I wouldn’t bother to use without a primer as it was just prone to fallout, sheering out, and required far more effort than was worth it. With primer, it was more mangeable and would work well enough as a transition and crease shade. The color stayed on well for six hours on me.
