The Best & Worst of NYX Nude Matte Eyeshadows

NYX Nude Matte Eyeshadow ($4.50 for 0.05 oz.) 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.

I’m glad you’re reviewing this line! For my needs and application style, these are the best matte singles in the drugstore. It can be very hard to find shades like Maybe Later and Tryst in formulations that are both affordable and good quality. The undertones are developed very well, which isn’t something I’ve been able to find in shadows from brands like ColourPop.
