Well I am back with another post on the dearly loved NYX Cosmetics’ product to arrive in my vanity.Its the wicked dreams palette…nice name huh?? Its an assorted palette of 24 eye shadows and might I say good color selection as well.
Its priced at around $14.99.
Now, there isnt a theme going on in this palette as far as the color families go its a mix of neutrals and vivid colors and lighter shades as well.
I have previously used NYX eyeshadows and I have always enjoyed their products . So I was pretty excited to try this particular palette. The color selection intrigued me and for the most part I am satisfied.
This palette has a good assortment of matte and metallic shades. I get more use out of a palette which has matte shadows along with shimmery or metallic finish eye shadows. The texture on these eyeshadows is smooth, they glide on perfectly, the darker shades I have swatches of them randomly in the picture below are without any primer or base.
And holy moly… do you see how freakin pigmented they are.Both the metallic and matte finish eye-shadows have good pigmentation on them. And they long lasting too. Even though I always prime my eyes before applying any eye-shadows to avoid creasing and to increase their staying power with this palette while I was testing it I used it without any primer and I must say the staying power was amazing. I dont have oily lids, so without any base they stayed on my lids a good 6-7 hours without creasing.
But yes its not all hunky dory in the wicked world, now is it?
I for the life of me couldnt get these two eye-shadows on the brush to get a decent enough swatch, let aside applying them on the eyes. I dont know what these eye-shadows are up to?
The lighter shades do not show up as much and if you need to use them you need to take extra steps..
I usually apply NYX JUMBO EYE PENCIL in MILK as a base to use under lighter eye-shadows.

To sum it up:
I like the color selection in this palette. The possibilities are endless.
The texture on the eye-shadows is smooth.
The staying power is good.
The pigmentation for most of the eye-shadows are amazing.
Disappointed with a couple of eye-shadows.
Other than that I AM LOVIN IT!!!
I shall be doing future makeup posts using this palette.
Until next time…
