5$ at NYX cosmetics website; In India, its price is Rs. 550, but I bought this from an e-shopping site for Rs. 440.
This is how the single swipe of NYX shadow looks like without any primer.

My Take on NYX Single Eyeshadow Black
These days, I really love doing smokey eyes with black eyeshadow a lot. I really wanted an intensely pigmented black eyeshadow for this. I searched a lot on websites and after lot of searching came to the conclusion that NYX eyeshadow in Black would actually fit my budget and would be a nice buy. So, after seeing this at an e-shopping site, I immediately ordered it the same day. When I received it, I was kind of shocked seeing the size of the eye shadow pot, it was so small. I was kind of disappointed, but after using it, I am quite happy with it.
With the first swipe, this doesn’t look very pigmented, but its quite buildable. I mainly use it to smudge my kohl, which significantly increases the staying power of my kohl to a great extent. After using it for one month every day, I saw much quantity is left and it will last me for a long time. Without primer when I used it, I found it to last on my eyes for 4 hours + with slight fall-out, but with NYX eye shadow base skin tone, this shadow looks more intense and stays for a long time, almost till I remove it with a nice makeup remover. :yahoo:
Many people have also compared it with the MAC eye shadow “Carbon Black.” I do not have MAC stuff, so can’t comment, but I have seen the swatches and found it to be similar with the MAC one. I am happy but I want more pigmentation you see!! I won’t say this is my HG matte black eye shadow, but still, I love it and will buy it again till I get something better than this.
Pros of NYX Single Eyeshadow Black
- Its quite reasonably priced for a nicely pigmented matte black eye shadow.
- Staying power is pretty good. It stays for 4 hours + without a primer.
- There is lots of quantity in the pot, which would last me for a long time.
- I require really a little bit everyday to achieve the desired pigmentation.
- Its quite buildable.
- Texture is very smooth and soft.
- This shadow blends really well with other shadows.
- This shadow makes my kohl stay for a long time without much smudging.
Cons of NYX Single Eyeshadow Black
- Contains parabens and many chemicals.
- It doesn’t easily come off with a cleanser properly.
- I wished to get more quantity for the price I am paying for a single eye shadow.
- I experienced a slight bit of fall-out when used without a primer.
4 out of 5.
Will I Repurchase?
:haanji: Yes I will, till I do not get a better one.
