NYX Cool Blue Eyeshadow details

Product Description:
NYX’s Single Eye shadow is richly pigmented eye shadow in over 160 shades. Soft and silky NYX Single Eye shadows are great on their own or0 blended for a beautiful prism of colours. This top-selling eye shadow is formulated with the highest minerals for long-lasting wear.

My Experience with NYX ES74 Cool Blue Eyeshadow:

Packaging: NYX single eye shadow comes in a cute little rectangular packaging with a transparent opening that lets you see the shade clearly. It opens and shuts with an audible click. Once locked, it wouldn’t open up in your purse or handbag.  I like the simple packaging 🙂

Color/Pigmentation:  “Cool Blue” is a very pretty light sky blue shade. I like how unique this shade is, but I don’t know why I bought this one. It has shimmers in it which makes it more gorgeous. The pigmentation is on the lighter side, but you can use it wet or build up the colour to intensify the look!

Texture: This eye shadow is very soft and smooth. It’s extremely finely milled and you can feel the quality as soon as you swipe the shadow. I love the texture! There is hardly any fall out from this one, but it is very powdery. It blends in very easily too.

Staying Power:  It stays on my lids for 4-5 hours without a primer though a primer would extend the staying power by another 2 to 3 hours.
