My Experience with NYX Single Eyeshadow- Taupe Pearl:

Of late, I am expanding my eye shadow collection and have been experimenting with different shades. I have never tried a taupe eyeshadow before, and this one sounded a good one to begin with. I have heard good things about NYX eye shadows and some shades are very popular as well.

The shadow comes in a basic small black square packaging with a transparent lid, which shuts well. The shade name, ingredients and everything is mentioned on the back side, but is not visible due to price tag and date details.

The shade “Taupe Pearl” is a neutral-toned taupe. The color is a mix of brown and little grey with slight purple tones, it looks more purple in person. I like the fact that it is not very cool-toned color as most taupe shades are and hence will work extremely well for Indian skin tones as well. It has a satin finish with no visible shimmers, but just has a lovely pearly sheen. The only thing with this shade is that it looks different at different angles, it is also difficult to capture, and will also show up in a slightly different way on different skin tones I feel. The color is perfect for all over the lid.  Just this shade all over the lid and some liner will make you look like you have put in lot of efforts in the eye makeup; it is perfect for beginners like me to create effortless looks. At the same time, it can be used with other shades as well. If you wear eye shadows on a daily basis, then this is definitely one include in your routine.

The texture is really good, it is very smooth and velvety soft.  As a reason, there is slight fallout in the pan, nothing much, blending is very easy with this one.Pigmentation is super impressive.  If you have normal to dry eyelids and do not need eye primer to make shadows last, then you can completely skip it with this one, as it shows up just as well without one.

With a primer, the shadow shows up in a slightly more intense way, but no major difference.  A single layer of the shadow is needed to get full color payoff. On my oily eye lids, it lasts for 4 hours without a primer before it starts to crease, but with a good primer, it stays intact for 6-7 hours, after which I notice some creasing. In the swatches, I have used a primer underneath on left and have swatched it alone on right.
