NYX: I Dream of St. Marteen Palette

Here is the first of three NYX palettes that I have to review and swatch!

The I Dream of St. Marteen palette.

These are the first three colors. They are the ones I use the most! The one in the center is my favorite in the palette.

I apologize for this being a little blurry. These are the last two in the palette. I love that they added a nice brow highlight color, so that it makes it much more convenient to travel with. One less thing to carry!

Like I said, I use the first three colors the most. As you can see, this palette can provide many different looks! The colors go together nicely.

On to the review! I feel like NYX is really stepping up their game and taking advantage of the spotlight that they gained on Youtube with their jumbo eye pencils. I must admit that I probably would never have tried their products had it not been for the rave reviews of Milk (jumbo eye pencil).

I really like this formula. It's very smooth to the touch and very pigmented. They are a bit powdery and with one use my palette looks dusty from the fallout. At the same time, I like it that way because they are very easy to blend. You may want to use a sponge-tip applicator, because they don't pick up very well with a fluffy eyeshadow brush.

If you travel a lot or you're on a budget, I think these NYX palettes are something to look into. They also would be great for beginners, because of the ease of blending. I give these a thumbs up!

thanks for the review Wendy! I should definitely get my hands on this NYX palette.. I just hope I will be able to find resellers here in the Philippines.

@Linh- Well, if it makes you feel better...I would say that the colors are very similar to the quad I sent you! :)

@Raech- Part of the only reason I don't get NYX that often is because of how impossibly hard it is to find! :/

I have tried their loose eyeshadows first and then also other products. They are really good and affordable.
I am really impressed with the pigmentation of this palette.
