Today, I’ve got another review on an eyeshadow from NYX Cosmetics which is one of my all-time favorite eyeshadows by NYX.
ES81 Chick is a bright metallic yellow color that fair-medium-wheatish skin toned women would be able to wear. Dark-skinned women may find this too bright for their liking. However, wearing this over a black base makes it slightly darker and easier to wear for them. Mixing it with a slight brown/copper makes it a really warm golden color.
This eyeshadow is super pigmented and blends like a dream. The texture is amazing and not chalky at all. It stays on the eyelids for 2-3 hours without creasing and without primer. With primer, it lasts all day and doesn’t crease or loose its pigmentation. A few eyeshadows from NYX that I’ve used so far tend to lose their color/pigmentation in a few hours. This eyeshadow doesn’t lose any pigmentation and stays put all day for hours with primer.
ES81 Chick is perfect for metallic evening makeup looks and wedding makeup as well; smokey eyes and so on. It’s a perfect shade for wearing with Indian clothes and accessories. It can also be used as an all over lid color by blending it out above the crease area with a fluffy brush. I love how this color is perfect for the summers now that the season is already approaching.
In the photo, I’ve swatched the eyeshadow from top to bottom; without any primer, with skin tone primer and with white eyeshadow base. I’ve swiped my finger tip just once for each swatch. The photo is in natural sunlight. You can see how pigmented this eyeshadow really is!
Overall, this is my current favorite eyeshadow from NYX Cosmetics and I can’t get enough of it! Also, ignore the shabby backside of the eyeshadow pot. I had a hard time peeling off the price tag to show the ingredients and related information.
Rs 550 for 2 grams.
