NYX The Caribbean Collection 5 Color Eyeshadow
I Dream of Jamaica


-  NYX generally has quite a good reputation for eyeshadows so I decided to give this neutral, cool toned palette a try. I've found that the pigmentation is at a medium level, not very strong so it's optimal if you just wanted a light wash of colour. Of the 5 colours the ones I've reached for the most are the two highlighting colours (the pale pink and the white) because I like how the shimmer gives it a faint satin finish thats not too strong.

Swatches in sunlight, no photo retouching.
This palette is great for a cool toned smokey eye because the grey shade (second to the right) has a really sheer finish that's easy to blend and the lavender shade (in the middle) adds a nice hint of colour. Before I made this purchase I browsed through reviews on makeupalley and most people were describing the eyeshadows as buttery and creamy but I've actually found this palette quite powdery, especially compared to how creamy the Urban Decay Naked palettes are. I think that  its powdery consistency does help with minimizing fallout  but just doesn't make it the greatest when it comes to its pigmentation.

Overall: 7/10

Love the colors in this palette, but such a bummer that the shadows were powdery!

Do you have an e-mail I could contact you with? I have a few questions about school and what not- a bit more personal :)
