Hello gorgeous ladies,

NYX has always been one of my favourite drugstore brands. Although I loved using their blushes and lipsticks, I would like to admit that I was never a fan of NYX eyeshadows, whether singles or the palettes. Enter – NYX Prismatic Eye Shadow which changed my perception about NYX eyeshadows. The NYX prismatic eyeshadows were launched last year and since I had no access to these, I could not pick these babies earlier, but recently, my local Shopper Drugmart started carrying a whole line of NYX products and I am thoroughly enjoying that. So, let’s have a look at why I love this NYX Prismatic Eye Shadow in “Mermaid.”

My Experience with NYX Mermaid Prismatic Shadows:

The NYX Prismatic eyeshadows are available in 12 gorgeous shades – Frostbite, Punk Heart, Liquid Gold, Girl Talk, Mermaid, Smoke and Mirrors, Golden Peach, Blue Jeans, Fireball, Bedroom Eyes, Jaded and Tin.

Packaging: These eyeshadows come packaged in 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 eyeshadow, 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:  “Mermaid” is a gorgeous light sea green shade with a silver duochrome 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 fell for it!

Pigmentation: The pigmentation is absolutely incredible! This eyeshadow formulation created by NYX can rival any expensive high-end eye shadow in the market. That’s why these shadows 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, this eyeshadow has been swatched without a primer, so you can see how truly pigmented it is!

Texture: It’s probably one of the softest and smoothest eyeshadow I have ever touched! No exaggerations ladies, I mean it!! You can actually see how soft it is in the hand swatch.  To me, it’s no less than a highly-pigmented loose eyeshadow pigment that was loosely pressed together. The only downside to it 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 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!

    1. Totally Jomol 🙂 I generally don’t get eye shadow singles as they are tough to manage, but these shades of the new Prismatic eye shadows have convinced me to try them!
