NYX Dramatic Chromatic Eyeshadow Pigment – Exquisite Review

By Fathima Luthfia

Hi pretty ladies,

Today, I am going to share my thoughts on NYX Eyeshadow Pigment in Exquisite.  When I saw NYX products online, I wanted to try the much-raved NYX Jumbo pencils.  Unfortunately, the colours which I liked were never in stock. After so much waiting, I went ahead and bought their eye shadow pigment in Exquisite.  I always preferred pressed eyeshadows as they are not messy and easy to handle. I liked the colour of this eye shadow pigment, so I gave a try first time to pigments. Read on to know my thoughts on NYX eyeshadow pigment.



INR 450 for 2 gm.

NYX dramatic chromatic eye shadow pigment is packed in a cylindrical plastic body. The lid of the jar is a black screw type which conveniently closes the jar. There is an inner transparent plastic lid that prevents pigments from creating a mess or wastage every time you open the main lid. The eye shadow name and number are printed at the bottom of the jar. The jar is quite sturdy and can be easily carried around in a makeup bag. The packaging is lightweight and travel friendly.

Exquisite is a stunning copper bronze shade. The shade is so pretty and vivid that it would suit Indian attire the best. The shade copper is a versatile shade for fair to dusky complexions.  I loved the shade a lot; you can pair it up easily with attires of any colour.

I have swiped the NYX eyeshadow pigment only once here, take a look at the amazing pigmentation.

Texture and Pigmentation:

The texture of the eyeshadow pigment is amazing. It gives a smooth pearl finish. The texture helps in blending the eyeshadow uniformly without any patches. A more dramatic look can also be achieved with eyeshadow pigments by applying them wet. Pigmentation of the eyeshadow is at its best. You only require a tiny bit of the pigment and it would take you ages to finish this jar. The colour pay off of the eyeshadow is perfect, the colour in the jar translates as same on your eyes. As it is richly pigmented, working with a light hand gives a pretty wash of colour and by layering more of the pigment it would give you an intense look. The eyeshadow pigment does have a little bit of fall out, but I think it is quite common while using pigments. Overall, I liked the texture and pigmentation.

Staying Power:

This is where the product failed to impress me. It doesn’t stay on my lids for more than 1.30 hours. It starts creasing after an hour without an eye primer. So, I would always recommend applying an eye primer underneath the pigment. The staying power extends to about 4 hours with a primer.
