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!

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities!

I think it’s so great that you’re reviewing some drugstore produtcs now Christine, specially NYX! I can only buy this brand online and it helps to see reviews before purchsing, and I really trust your opinion! this one is on my wishlist now 😀

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.
