Name: Ultra Pearl Mania
From NYX’s website:
Loose Pearl Eyeshadow lets you sweep on intense colors in one easy application.
What I liked:
– lots of beautiful shades to choose from
– the price
What I didn’t like:
– the packaging
I love pigments: they are multi-purpose, long lasting and have amazing color payoff. I have quite a few of them and I use them almost daily. After hearing so many good things about NYX pigments I couldn’t resist, I had to try them.
These loose shadows are available in 30 beautiful shades. I have Lime, a nice sheer, shimmery green. Despite Lime being a sheer shade it is pretty pigmented.
The powder is fine and easy to blend, although a bit powdery which can make application messy. For this reason, it’s better to use this with a sticky primer to make the color adhere better to the lid. The primer will also make the color last all day.
Despite the fact that I love this pigment I’m not sure I’m gonna get more of these because I hate the packaging. I don’t mind that the jar is pretty small, after all, who can finish a whole jar of MAC pigment? And for $2.00 you still get lots of product.
But what I can’t stand is that the opening is so small you can’t get a brush in there and I have yet to figure out how to get the powder out without pouring out too much and making a mess! This is really annoying me and I’m thinking of buying a bigger jar and transfer the product in there.
Overall, I love this pigment. The shade is beautiful, the color payoff great and it lasts all day. Not too mention that it’s so cheap! However, it is a bit powdery and the jar makes it difficult to get the powder out.
