NYX Wicked Dreams Palette Review and Swatches
|When I saw this palette at Digital Traincase, I immediately googled it. It was one of NYX's newest palettes at the start of 2013. It was during this time that I was so desperate in getting a decent eyeshadow palette. The name "Wicked Dreams" sounds too enticing and enchanting at the same, right? Thus, I did not hesitate buying it. Plus, I fell in love with the colors. Despite the lack of reviews, being a fairly new product back then, I caved in to my lemming. I bought it at a much lower cost (around 550 pesos I think) because it was on preorder. The palette looked even more gorgeous in person when I received it months ago. |
It was mixture of neutrals with hints of bold colors!
The darker matte shadows are very pigmented while the lighter ones appear faint, some barely even showed up at the back of my hand while I try to do swatches. I had to apply two layers to show the colors of the matte light shades. The matte black shadow is the most pigmented out of all the shades in this palette. Also, the light matte colors are really hard to pick up meaning, the color does not show up instantly when swiped. So, I scraped the eyeshadows to transform it into a powder form for easy color pick up. The matte ones are powdery and some are even too chalky for my liking.
The shimmery ones have the best formulation and pigmentation. They are very smooth and the color pay off is remarkable.
The color selection of this palette truly wowed me since all shadows are very wearable for any occassion - day to night time wear. Some eyeshadows in this palette may fail in the pigmentation department but that does not mean I can not make this work diba?! Thanks to eye primers, I can intensify the colors very easily and I can even lengthen the staying power of this product.
Have a blessed day everyone!!!
