One benefit of organizing your makeup collection is re-discovering products you haven’t used in a while. Somehow this NYX palette got pushed to the wayside, but the colors are really quite lovely, so I decided to swatch it for you.
The main draw for me with this palette is the colors. They’re shimmery neutrals that remind me of popular shades from higher end brands.
In terms of formula, these aren’t my favorite from NYX, but they’re not bad, either. Most of the shades have a buttery smooth texture, but pigmentation just isn’t as good as many of the other NYX shadows I own. For the swatches, I used my fingers to apply the colors and did two layers.
The Caribbean Collection was released a while back. If you like this, I recommend purchasing it soon, as I’m not sure how much longer it will be available.
