Hey lovely ladies,
I am here with a review on Bronze Smokey Look Kit from NYX. There isn’t much hype about this kit, but I absolutely love it. This was the first ever eye makeup that I got. I was not much of an eyeshadow girl, but wanted to try out my first ever eye look, so I got this off Ulta website. This kit comes with neutral shades which go absolutely beautiful with Indian skin tone. I use this palette in almost every eye look I create.
Create smokey eyes with a caramel twist. The Bronze Smokey Look Kit contains 9 eye shadows and 2 lip colors. A slide-out compartment makes this palette portable. Mirror and applicators included.
What’s there in the kit?
This kit comes in a small palette which is of the size of a pressed powder. It contains 9 eye shadows and 2 lip glosses. The pans are quite small and perfect for travel. This palette is very well designed, it has a good sized mirror and the lip shades are in a hidden compartment and they are no way exposed to the eye shadow which is a huge plus point. The first row contains 3 matte shades of flush tone colors perfect for every skin tone. These can be used as crease/transition colors. The second row contains 3 warm metallic shades – dark bronze, gold and a lighter shade of bronze. The third row contains 3 shades – black, shimmery brown and a gold color with some bronze undertones. Second and third row can be used as a lid colors. There is a hidden little drawer under the eye shadows which comes with two lip shades – shimmery pink and bronzy nude.
My Take on NYX Bronze Smokey Look Kit:
This is a very versatile kit which comes with combination of matte and shimmery shadows perfect for creating any sort of eye look, be it a smokey look or every day neutral look. The shimmery eye shadows are not over the top shimmery. All the colors are very soft, easy to blend and have good staying power. The pigmentation is also perfect and there is absolutely no fall out whatsoever. This is a perfect kit for beginners or anybody who travels a lot and likes to carry a tiny palette with various shades to create any sort of look. Some of the shimmery shadows act as dupes to MAC and Urban Decay eye shadows.
The two lip colors are soft, they don’t dry out the lips, but I don’t see any use out of these as the colors are not so appealing and there is absolutely no color payoff. They are mere lip balms.
Pros of NYX Bronze Smokey Look Kit:
- Perfect for travel, you can carry this single palette.
- Comes with various shades which are perfect for medium/tanned skin tones.
- Comes with neutral colors, perfect to create any sort of eye look.
- Comes with 9 shadows and 2 lip shades for as little as $10.
- Pigmentation is perfect.
- Shadows are easy to work it. They are extremely blendable and the texture is very soft and buttery.
- Doesn’t give a chalky or powdery effect.
- Staying power is good.
- Zero fall-out.
- Perfect for beginners and those who wouldn’t like to invest money on too many products.
- Very affordable.
Cons of NYX Bronze Smokey Look Kit:
- The lip shades are not of much use.
- The quantity of eye shadows is too less.
I definitely recommend this product to anyone who loves gold, bronze, and flush tone colours. This can be easily carried in your handbag too. I don’t care about the lip shades as they are already hidden away from the eyeshadows.
