Hello gorgeous ladies,
I have a new favourite eyeshadow line from the drugstore, which is very rare because I firmly believe if you need “good quality” eyeshadows, just run to Sephora! But guess what, the NYX Prismatic eyeshadows have totally blown my mind away! In this post, I am going to talk about NYX Prismatic EyeShadow in “Punk Heart.”
Live in a world of kaleidoscope color with our Prismatic Shadows. Mix and match any of these 12 brilliant metallic shades to achieve a fun stunning eye look in seconds.
My Experience with NYX Punk Heart Prismatic Shadows:
Packaging: These babies 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: “Punk Heart” is a gorgeous bright purple shade with a silver 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 fell for it. I love duo-chrome in everything – I mean nail colours, wrapping papers and eyeshadows as well!
Pigmentation: The pigmentation is absolutely incredible! This eyeshadow formulation created by NYX can rival any expensive high-end eyeshadow in 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 eye shadows 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 eyeshadow pigment that was loosely pressed together. The only downside to them being this soft is that they tend 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 Painterly Paint Pot, 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!
