After a long time, I purchased some eyeshadows. I wanted to purchase something from Kryolan, but Kryolan store is way too far from my house, so ended up buying from NYX. Keep reading.

Choose from over 160 individual NYX Single Eye Shadow shades in shimmer, sheer, glitter, frosty, metallic or matte. Our pressed mineral eye shadows pack a color punch, are easy to blend and last for many hours.
Price and Quantity:
Rs. 550 for 2 grams.
Sorry for the bad picture; there was a bar code label stuck right over this 🙁
This is what I found on the NYX Website:
Mica, Talc, Zinc Stearate , Methyl Methacrylate Cross Polymer, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate(And)Boron Nitride, Mineral Oil, Isopropyl Myristate, Tridecyl Trimellitate, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba)Seed Oil, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Polybutene, B.H.T., Methylparaben, and Propylparaben. MAY CONTAIN: Red Iron Oxide (CI 77491), Yellow Iron Oxide (CI 77492), Black Iron Oxide (CI 77499), Mica (CI 77019), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), or Manganese Violet (CI 77742).
This comes in a small, square-shaped container with a transparent flip-open lid, much more convenient than the screw up lid.
My Take on NYX Single Eyeshadow in Morocco:
The texture is superb. It feels absolutely smooth and silky. It blends really well.
I totally adore purples and purple + a little pearl finish is an amazing combination.

It looks deep blue in the case and when you apply it and blend, it looks more of a deep purple with a hint of blue, but when you build up the color, it looks more like deep blue + purple. When applied wet, it turns deep purple with a hint of blue. It is kind of a duo chrome color.

You can also see some shimmer particles. They look really good. The shimmer particles are very fine and don’t look tacky and do not overpower rest of the color. I find this great for purple smokey eye and I prefer to apply it wet than dry. When applied wet, the color really intensifies and stays on for a long time than when applied dry.
With a real good eyeshadow primer, it could easily go up to 6 hours. I didn’t experience any fallout. It is not really waterproof. Some colors from my BH Cosmetics Palette are waterproof. Even after splashing water on the face, those colors don’t fade much.
I tried splashing water on my face when I had Morocco eyeshadow on and it did fade away. So, if you want to make it last, consider using a sealing gel or liquid.
Here’s how it looks on my eyes 🙂

Summing it up:
Pros of NYX Single Eyeshadow in Morocco:
- Gorgeous color.
- Very pigmented.
- Doesn’t feel heavy on my lids.
- Blends really well.
- Smooth texture.
- Very fine shimmer particles that don’t look tacky.
Cons of NYX Single Eyeshadow in Morocco:
- It is not waterproof.
- I find this a bit on the expensive side.
- Again, NYX Counters are far too less in India. 🙁
Will I Buy NYX Single Eyeshadow in Morocco Again?
Yes, if this one gets over or nears expiry date, and if I don’t find a waterproof eyeshadow in a similar hue, then I may purchase this again.
Thank you ladies, I hope you like it 🙂
