Hello gorgeous ladies,

NYX has always been one of my favourite drugstore brands. The NYX Prismatic Shadows were launched last year. Just after its launch, it became a quick favourite of all beauty gurus and bloggers throughout the world. It created quite a buzz in the beauty world and now that I had a chance to these, I picked up a few shades. So, let’s have a look at why I love this NYX Prismatic Eye Shadow in “Liquid Gold.”

My Experience with NYX Liquid Gold Prismatic Shadows:

Packaging: These babies come packaged in a cute little silver and black pots and the clasp is a little silver bow. How freaking amazingly cute is that!! It’s a fine way of adding that little bit of a girly touch to the tiny eye shadow, without going crazy. The packaging is sturdy, sleek and simple. They also have a hinge opening, similar to their other eye shadows, which I prefer to a cap that comes off all the way.

Color:  “Liquid Gold” is exactly like its name! It’s a bright gold shade white with a bronze-y duo-chrome when it catches the light. Just gorgeous! I do not have a shade similar to this in my collection and hence when I swatched this in the store, I feel for it. I love duo-chrome everything – I mean nail colours, wrapping papers and eye shadows as well!

Pigmentation: The pigmentation is absolutely incredible! This eyeshadow formulation created by NYX can rival any expensive high-end eyeshadow on the market. That’s why these were such a pleasant surprise because the original NYX eyeshadows were decent, but I wasn’t super impressed by them. In the images of the hand swatch and the eye swatch, these are swatched without a primer, so you can see how truly pigmented these are!

Texture: These are probably some of the softest and smoothest eyeshadows I’ve ever touched! No exaggerations ladies, I mean it!! You can actually see how soft they are in the hand swatch. To me, they are no less than a highly pigmented loose eye shadow pigment that was loosely pressed together. The only downside to them being this soft is that it tends to have a lot of fallout so you need to be careful with that.

Longevity: Without a primer, this eyeshadow lasts on my lid for a good 8 hours and with my MAC Paint Pot in Painterly, the longevity increases to at least 12-13 hours with the same life and colour it showed up when I first applied it, if that makes sense. So, the conclusion is that they’re long-lasting as well!
