NYX Single Eyeshadow – Volcano

Today I’m going review one of my favorite eyeshadow from NYX. NYX single eyeshadows are one of the cutest eyeshadow pots that I have come across.  There are over 160 shades of single eyeshadows to choose from NYX! (Though the NYX site says 72 at present, you can find all colors on other online shopping sites) So you girls can go “ga ga” over choosing your favorite color.  I myself own a couple of them. I will be reviewing them in the coming days for you. For today, please read on to know my experience with NYX single eyeshadow in Volcano.

Choose from 72 individual NYX Single Eye Shadow shades in shimmer, sheer, glitter, frosty, metallic or matte.

NYX single eyeshadows come in these cute little black colored pots, square in shape with transparent lid. The shadow is tightly packed in diamond shaped impressions as you can see in the pictures. These pots are so cute that you cannot resist from buying a couple of them in a few beautiful colors. The color of volcano shade is very beautiful chocolate brown with satin finish. It has got decent pigmentation. We can also build the color with multiple swipes over the lid. The texture is very smooth, very easy to apply. Without primer, it lasts up to 5 hours on my oily lids. If I apply the eye shadow with an eye primer underneath the staying power increases considerably up to 8 hours and it’s really good in my opinion. The shadow does not crease though I have oily lids and I love that about the NYX single eye shadows. It is well-suited for neutral eye look, brown smokey eye and can also be worn on its own. If you are a neutral eye makeup lover, then this eyeshadow is must-have in your kit.

P.S. While surfing I found that NYX Volcano is a dupe for MAC twinks eyeshadow. Since I don’t own twinks I cannot comment on it but the swatch in Rati’s post on twinks looked pretty similar.
