Nyx Wicked Dreams Palette

Nyx Wicked Dreams Palette

I got this NYX Wicked Dreams Palette sent in the US Beauty Swap i did and I've been testing it out for the past few weeks. Before doing this swap I've never tried any NYX products, so I've been loving trying all the products i got.

This palette consists mostly of neutral shades with the odd blue, pink and purple thrown in but they are fairly toned down and muted so it does fit the rest of the shades. I'm a big sucker for neutrals so Chelsea chose really well with this one because it's a perfect range for me - you can create a lovely subtle every day eye look but there's a nice variety of darker shades to shake up the look and make it more dressy for special occasions or nights out. For the bright eyeshadow lovers you can even add a little burst of colour with the blue, pink and purple. There is a nice variety of matte and shimmery shades too so it's quite a versatile palette and there is something for everyone.

The quality of the eyeshadows itself is a little hit and miss; they apply and blend out nicely and i haven't noticed any fall out from the eyeshadows when I've applied them. Some of the eyeshadows are pigmented and others not so much - the middle row of swatches show were the shades with the weakest pigmentation is which is a pain. In terms of staying power they last for a fair bit on me, i wear my make-up for full days and i don't notice any creasing until later in the evening - I've always used an eye primer underneath so i can't comment on what its like without.

I also like the packaging on this, although the design is really simple and a bit of colour would have been nice, it feels really sturdy so i would be happy to travel about with it in my bag and not worry about it breaking

I'm not sure if it is available in the UK, I've had a browse of NYX's UK website and i can't see it on there which is a shame. I also don't know how much this palette is as i received this in a swap - so i can't actually say whether its worth paying for but NYX products are usually quite reasonably priced so i can't imagine it being too expensive - i know i know, I'm just so informative.

Overall, i do actually think this is a nice palette - it's not the most amazing palette I've tried but it is decent and it does have a nice selection of shades. The pigmentation of some of the eyeshadows do let this palette down but there is a lot of shades that have good pigmentation and that i will definitely get a lot of use out of.

Have you tried any NYX products?
