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.

    1. Ya here in India we donot have much option for matte black eye shadow, so bought it ! Anyways for everybody’s benifit I wanted to tell try Inglot AMC matte black eye shadow 63, thts a nice matte black shadow, do buy the refill one and not the general one as the refill one costs Rs 300 and has 2.7 gm where as the general pan has 2.4 gms and costs 650. 😐 Its wierd but true, alws go for refills!

    1. Thanks dear ! Ya quantity is less but I require ver y less , since one month I have been using it and it looks as good and untouched as new ! try inglot one then

  1. You can always buy it from NYX site, i do shopping from the NYX site only, it’s way cheaper when you buy it from their site, but the only thing is it takes nearly 1 month to get your order.

    1. I donot have paypal account or credit card thtswhy i donot buy from thr, thr are very good options i know, but may be in future i will do the same

      1. You can buy it with your debit card.. i toh buy with debit card only, ordered few things just 3-4 days back.. they already have shipped it.. hopefully i will get it buy 18th Nov.. and their customer care is just awesome.. 🙂

  3. This is dreamy I was halfway on my review for this eyeshadow. Hahahah.

  4. Bee……………koi baath nahin beauty……….write a detailed posht about your skin care regime…..I want to know :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

  5. Jomo… Lol. My skincare??? I need a big whack :hunterwali: I was doing CTM regularly. Till then everything wad grt. Last week I ignored. Now I am red in some parts and dry in some and oily in some. :(((

    1. Bee…..I suddenly have acne again…and I am so sick of following everything correctly and then the acne shows up 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁

      1. sachhi re. aaj kal toh when I get a pimple I just slap toothpaste over it and go to sleep…. you tried benzoyl peroxide? it used to help me….

  6. few days back me too thought of buying a black eyeshadow… but while experimenting with bit browns felt smoky eyes are totally nor for me :panda: :panda: … anyways nice review taps and yup inglot sounds more economical. btw please please do an article based on all the home recipes you know for skin and hair na… :jaiho: :jaiho:

    1. thnxxxxx Sukanya!!!!!!! yaa inglot sounds much better !! sukanya u asking me to write article??? :tongue: u write much better!!! u have more experience!!

  7. tapas, mac carbon is not a good eyeshadow imo. it goes patchy, and is quite hard to blend. form your review i feel the NYX one is quite pigmented and better than carbon. It looks lovely. do a look with it sometime. 🙂 I like the small eyeshadow pots of NYX eyeshadows. They look soo cute :teddy: :teddy:

    1. Oh carbon black is hard to blend?? didnt know tht, just read somewhr wbt the comparision, nyx shadow blends nicely, i had used it some days back, it really blends nicely, its soft also, ya it looks very cute these small pots !! :jiggy1: :haanji:

      1. haan i have reviewed it. I barely use it. only when i want that light ashy kinda look. Otherwise toh it’s the saddest black i have used so far :headbang:

  8. it looks like a decent black from the swatch taps…and after a long time..how are you doing?
    I ordered 5 inglot eye shadows recently and matt black is one of them 🙂

  9. Nice review taps :waytogo: Review from you after a long time!
    I’m so tempted to try smokey look, but I feel I’ll end up like this :panda:
