NYX Cosmetics Loose Pearl Eye Shadows: Pearl & Nude

NYX Cosmetics Loose Pearl Eye Shadows

With an endless amount of eyeshadow palettes, I probably didn't need any more make-up but that didn't stop me from buying a few things; shame on me. Fun fact: I'm a tad (read very) clumsy, so loose powder, loose blushers and anything else with the term "loose" in its name and "me" are never a good combination. However having recently attended Olympia Beauty, I knew I had to pick out a few loose eyeshadow pigments from NYX to try out, after all I had heard nothing but good things about them. I may be very late to the party but here's what I think about these:

NYX Cosmetics Loose Pearl Eye Shadows

I chose 2 shades; Pearl, a pale baby pink and Nude, a pale gold shimmer. Both shades are incredibly pretty and definitely give that extra kick on any eye make-up look. Pearl, being a light sparkling pink is very similar to MAC's Swish which I had a few years ago but sadly lost so I am glad this shade is back in my make-up stash. Nude on the other hand is unlike anything I have; its light frosted gold colour is perfect for highlighting the inner corner of the eyes on a more warm make-up look and definitely one I will keep reaching for this fall.

These shadows are amazingly pigmented so you truly only need a teeny tiny amount per application thus these will last me quite a long time despite very small. Packaging wise I'm not impressed. Problem 1: the lid screws off to expose a very small opening which is much to small to fit a brush inside. Problem 2: if you are like me, you end up pouring some product on its cap and creating a big glittery mess because guess what, the cap is way too small too. Conclusion reached: I was right to fear anything called "loose"...

But leaving the packaging issue aside, having worn both with and without primer, I would say the lasting power is pretty good and I am quite impressed at these little things. I probably wouldn't purchase any more because well, they're messy and I just can't deal with these types of products, but now that I've purchased these two I will make sure I wear them and get my money's worth. Oh, they're only £2 at the moment here, so if you don't mind the rubbish packaging and maybe even move the product to a bigger container, these are pretty and a nice addition to your collection.

What do you think of these? Any tips on how to use loose products? If so, do share them with me, any advice is truly appreciated! 

Thanks for reading beauties and have a nice week ahead!

  5. I`m the same, I`m such a mess with loose things. But at 2£ I`m very tempted to get one or two..and probably test them on a day I plan to do some cleaning:))

  10. When it comes to makeup, anything with the term 'loose' in its name makes me scared, LoL, because I'm quite clumsy as well. But I love these shades, especially the pearl one. So beautiful.

  13. Same as you, I'm really clumsy. That's why loose everything dont match me at all. But these loose pearl eyeshadows has a really gorgeous colour. I wanted to try it out but also hoping I'm not messing with it....

  15. These are so amazingly pigmented! I haven't really tried a pigment since the BarryM Dazzle Dusts, but maybe I should give them a go again!

  17. I'm so clumsy too, I would make such a mess! But my favourite loose pigment is the l'oréal infallible single eyeshadows... they're like pressed loose pigments so less messy :P

  20. Oh wow, I thought that was some Christmasy nail varnish! that looks like a good idea having it in little tubes, but then again I quite like putting it all on with make up brushes :)

  22. Here I am again, dear Pam, still a bit dizzy but getting better! I had to smile when I read "very clumsy" :) I liked the loose eye shadows' colors very much, they look really beautiful and feminine! I would like to have the pinkish one, I think it really looks sweet! And as you said that the lasting power is very good and combined with the amazing price, a must-have product!

  23. I avoid anything loose for the same reason, Pam! I am very clumsy and I can only deal with loose powder so far and have been avoiding this type of eyeshadows. I must say both shades are seriously pretty though, totally worth the money in my book.

  28. I would have loved to see what they look like on you. I'm not a fan of loose eyeshadows either because they're messy. I have two silver shades of my own and I haven't used them in a long time because of that reason. I think I'll stick to my palettes.

  29. Acho que não me ia sair bem a usar estes produtos e, tal como tu, ia deixar tudo cheio de brilhantes! No entanto, as cores são lindas. Gostei especialmente do nude :)

  38. Repackage them. I usually pur some of my MAC pigments into a small plastic jar, that way you can get a little on the lid and apply them with a wet brush. No mess and barely any fallout!

  39. I can't believe that I haven't tried anything from NYX before! Now it's at Boots online, I have no excuse. The Pearl shade looks so gorgeous. Although you said they were very messy, I just could resist. I'd just cover them in a setting spray on the brush I think.:)

  56. The quality of the eyeshadows looks great, they seem really pigmented. I've never used loose pigments, I think I'll make a huge mess! :)

  57. Such a bummer about the packaging, can imagine that's a right pain! I just bought my first MAC pigment and thankfully the packaging is great and I can fit my brush in the pot, but I still make a mess haha!xx
