NYX Prismatic Shadows Reviews, Photos, Swatches (2018)

Bewitched

NYX Bewitched Prismatic Shadow ($6.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a bright, light-medium chartreuse green with warm, yellow undertones and a frosted sheen. It had opaque pigmentation, though I swear it was a bit faded applied than it appeared in the pan. The texture was soft, a little powdery, but blendable and easy to use on the lid. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me.

Gilded

NYX Gilded Prismatic Shadow ($6.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark yellow with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The eyeshadow had fantastic pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly on bare skin. The consistency was smooth, soft enough to pickup easily with a brush, but firm enough to have some substance and good adherence to the skin. It lasted for eight hours before fading a bit on me.

Glass Slipper

NYX Glass Slipper Prismatic Shadow ($6.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a bright, pale aqua green with subtle, warm golden shimmer, though it read a bit “cool” on me overall. It had nearly opaque color payoff paired with a soft, lightly powdery texture that was still blendable and didn’t have fallout during application as long as I pressed and patted it onto the lid. This shade lasted for eight hours before noticeably fading on me.

Rose Dust

NYX Rose Dust Prismatic Shadow ($6.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark copper with warm, rosy undertones and a metallic finish. The eyeshadow was richly pigmented where a little went a very long way. It had a soft, almost cream-like texture that wasn’t too dense nor too loose in the pan, which made it extremely easy to apply, helped it go on smoothly on bare skin, and blended out effortlessly. It wore well for eight hours on me.

Ingredients

Magnesium Stearate, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Nylon-12, Alumina, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Octyldodecanol, Tin Oxide, Silica, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol.

Savage

NYX Savage Prismatic Shadow ($6.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium, bluish-teal with cool undertones and a metallic finish. The color payoff was opaque in a single layer. It had a soft, lightly dusty texture in the pan, but I didn’t have trouble with fallout as long as I tapped away the excess prior to applying the eyeshadow to my lid. It applied evenly and blended out with ease without primer. This shade stayed on nicely for eight hours before it started to fade noticeably.

Ingredients

Magnesium Stearate, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Nylon-12, Alumina, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Octyldodecanol, Tin Oxide, Silica, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol.

Volatile

NYX Volatile Prismatic Shadow ($6.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a bright, medium purple with warm, pink undertones and a metallic sheen. It had nearly opaque color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly on my skin, but this was a shade that I felt really sang if I used it with a dampened brush as the texture was just a bit more powdery than ideal. The eyeshadow lasted for eight hours before fading a bit on me.

Oh wow, I want all of these, especially bewitched. It’s so rare to get cheap good quality eyeshadows easily available here in the UK.

Gorgeous shades and fantastic value too. I love your eye looks Christine. Savage is such a beautiful blue, a perfect shade for summer and Glass Slipper is so elegant.

Shocker: that icy aqua just made it on to my wishlist! Even though I do have CP Flower Shop from when it first launched, idk what sort of shape it may be in. Plus, it doesn’t have the same intensity.

Same goes for Rose Dust. By now, CP Weenie might be drying out. If so, this shade is its replacement!

Good show, Nyx! Esp appreciated since they jacked up the palette prices and everyone’s fuming! A $50 Nyx mega palette, not so much. Decent singles, definitely. Wow, I think I like the Savage swatch more than Venice! Hope you had fun with your parents this w/e. Has to be tough being at once so busy and so distant.

Ah, I saw these were available online and I wondered if they would be any good! Thanks for the review and the beautiful looks. The mattes look good too.

Wow!
Tree of these went immediately to my wish list. Volatile, Savage and Gilded. I have a hard time resisting anything purplish, Savage is one of the first teal-y e/s I’ve seen that might suit me, and Gilded is such an amazing golden yellow.
Well done NYX! And thanks for reviewing them!

I really like Gilded and Savage, so I’m glad they did well. I’ll pick them up soon, thankfully they’re permanent.

These look incredible! I want them all. At that price point coupled with that quality, how can you go wrong. Your swatches look fantastic as do your looks.
I use Nyx base products such as the eyebrow pencil and the eyeshadow primer quite regularly but haven’t yet tried the eyeshadows.
