NYX Suede Collection Eye Shadow Palette

Having tried a few different NYX products in the past I can't say I have been as impressed with them as everyone else seems to be at the moment, but yet there are still so many different things I want to try and top of the list was some eye shadow products. So I was pretty thrilled when my beautiful little friend (HI YVONNE) got me some NYX bits to try including this beautiful eye shadow palette...

The NYX Suede Collection is the perfect little collection of shades for perhaps a more glamorous event or a night out. There are definitely some shades in there that I don't have in any of my other palettes, which btw are mainly neutral shades because I'm boring like that. So I've just been loving playing around with these shades and finding out what kind of eye make up I actually suit. The most risky colour is probably the deep green (the shadows don't have names) but even this is still really wearable! I've been trying smoking it out with the highlight shade and it really is absolutely gorgeous. My favourites are definitely the metallic copper shades though!

In terms of formula the eye shadows are really pigmented although I would say they could be doing with being a tad more pigmented as they aren't quite on a par with my precious Urban Decay Eye Shadows. For a drugstore price point though they are pretty finely milled and slightly creamy and when worn with an eye primer I have found them to be just as long lasting and smudge proof as any of the higher end eye products I normally use.

Overall, I absolutely love the product but if there is one thing I would change it would be the packaging as its just made from flimsy cardboard and I'm one of these fussy people who love my make up encased in plastic as strong as my coffee. Also, a mirror would be nice! However, that aside this is a lovely selection of shades, budget friendly, and a good introduction to NYX eye shadows for me personally. It also reminds me a little of the Zoeva Naturally Yours Palettes which I've had my eye on for a little while.

Unfortunately as this post went live I was unable to find a UK link for the palette which is disappointing, but since a good proportion of you come from the US (or so google analytics tells me) I've included the link to where you can buy it on Amazon! Anyone else that wants to get their hands on this will have to drag themselves to Boots!

What are you guys favourite eye shadow palettes? Do you rate NYX as a brand?
