NYX The Ultimate Pearl Shadow

NYX has came out with a new product, The Ultimate Pearl Shadow ($7.00) is a pearl eye shadow packed in a quilted powder compact. These are high in pigment, and when I say high, I mean tons! It comes in 18 different colors, all just as glittery as the one I reviewed today. I was lured to NYX Cosmetics on Black Friday because everything was half off! What a bargain! I bought a ton of stuff I will be reviewing throughout the next month.

This is the Ultimate Pearl Shadow in Baby Pink Pearl. First thought? $7 is a great steal for an eyeshadow so high in pigment. Plus the size is pretty large, so it will last you a long time. This eyeshadow is not very powdery at all, it goes on smooth and for the most part stays on most of the day. I've tried NYX eyeshadows in the past, and wasn't too impressed. If you're thinking about purchasing shadow from this company, I suggest you buy the ultimate pearl vs the original. The only reason I would stay stay away from this, is if you're not a fan of pigment or glitter.

Sorry for the HORRIBLE picture, but for some reason, I couldn't get a good pick of this color on my arm. Not sure if it's because of the sparkle or the light baby pink. Overall, I love, love LOVE this shadow. I advise using a cream shadow underneath, or maybe an eyeshadow primer, such as Urban Decay Primer Potion before using this. It's great for layering because it's not thick and makes a great under layer for a dark shade. I'm giving the NYX Ultimate Pearl Shadow an A + and has made it's way to my favorite NYX product.

Disclosure: I bought this product for the purpose of this review. All opinions are my own.
