I love makeup, I really do but bold looks or even looks that require blending and all that jazz aren't really my thing. I don't have the biggest eyes in the world so I don't like to over-do it with too many colors. All I basically do for eye shadow is take a color and sweep it across my lids, unless it's a really fancy-shmancy place I'm heading to lol. Now that that's out of the way, I'll start talking about why I love the NYX Caviar and Bubbles palette soo soo much!
First of the packaging is simple and sturdy, meaning there's no extra sliding portions and mini-drawers to flip through to see half of the colors, which ultimate makes this hassle free and travel friendly. You get quite a decent sized mirror with it which is pretty useful. The color you get in this palette are a mix of mattes and shimmers with the mattes being a bit more chalkier than the shimmers. All the eyeshadow are very well pigmented except for the second and third in the first row, soft to the touch and there is barely any fall out with the shimmery shadows. You can use this palette in the day time and the matte black can help you in smoking it out for the evening.
Some of the issues I have with this palette (although that doesn't make me love it any less) are number one, the shades are quiiiite similar to each other especially the ones in the top row, and they show up with very little difference on your eyes. Secondly, the lasting power of these eye shadows isn't that great, but that's something that can be easily solved with the help of a primer.
This NYX palette has been compared to the Urban Decay 1 palette and the Sleek Au Naturale palette, but since I have neither I cant really say anything about that. All in all, it's a decent palette, very much worth the money and ideal for no-fuss girls like me :p
