Review-NYX Caviar and Bubbles 10 Color Eye Shadow Palette

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

PROS-
Inexpensive
Travel-friendly
Good pigmentation
Variety of matte and shimmer shades
Lots of neutral options

CONS-
Similar shades of neutral colors
A bit of fallout from the matte shades
Shadows work best with a primer underneath

PRICE-$10-$12 ( depending on location)

Hope you guys enjoyed the review, I've one one after what seems like ages! Are you guys a fan of NYX? Any must have products that I need to try? Let me know in the comments below.

Until next time, tc.

  12. I've been wanting to try out this palette but I was afraid it might to be chalky on my skin. I'm just like you - I tend to stick to neutrals...basically anything that requires the least amount of work lol. I bought the sleep au naturale palette and from the looks of it, I don't think they are too similar although I haven't used or looked at it enough. I may go and buy this nyx palette. Love your blog by the way, I will definitely be following you. check out mine?

  15. Aaah thank you!! Now I want this too LOL. I can never get enough of those neutral and nude eye shadows. I do have the Au Naturale one by Sleek and well some shades might be a tad similiar but on the whole this is different. All of them seem satin finish, no mattes? I am so into mattes currently I don't know why
