NYX Soho Glam Palette Review

image

I’m a huge sucker for palettes! I just can’t help myself! I feel like they’re such a great value and also an awesome way to try out a brand. Before I started ordering individual pieces I fell in love with this beauty!

This palette contains 52 shades ranging from neutrals to bright hues. This palette also has a nice range of different finishes including matte and frosty.

The top two layers slide out revealing another eight eyeshadows in larger pans, two small lip glosses, a mini lip liner, a small brush, and a couple eyeshadow applicators.

This super palette also includes eight lip colors and four blushes that slides out from underneath the palette.

What I love the most about this palette is its packaging! It’s not small enough to throw in your purse but the perfect size for vacations! Nyx did a pretty bang up job comfortably housing all these products together! I love the slide out drawers! Its smart, sleek and helps keep the mess to the minimum.

This palette is pretty sturdy but definitely not solid. It survived a trip in my suitcase but barely made it after a spill from the bathroom counter. The closure broke and one of the eyeshadow trays slides completely off now. But no biggie! None of the makeup was harmed so the packaging isn’t really that bad.

Nyx really blew me away this one! The eyeshadows are smooth and very pigmented! Some shades do come off a little chalky and fall out is a small problem with this palette but overall the formula is still pretty nice and consistent.

Both the shadows and blushes apply very smoothly and blend out very well. I had no problems at all using this palette! I pulled together entire looks during spring break with this beauty!

I don’t wear the lip colors or lip pencil so I can’t really review them thoroughly. They did, however, apply very smoothly. The lip pencil felt soft and slightly creamy and showed up a lovely pinky nude. The lip colors swatched smoothly and didn’t feel sticky. Most of the shades applied pretty sheer but the last two shades are definitely more opaque.

The kit also contained two lip glosses which were both very sheer and a little sticky but gave off a nice sheen. Not a bad addition!

Overall, I love this palette! Its great for everyday neutral looks and bright or smokey looks for a night out! The blushes are come in flattering shades for all skin tones and are pigmented enough to show on women of color.

Although some of the shadows (mostly matte of course) are a little chalky, it still doesn’t take away from the good quality and value this palette brings. I’d definitely recommend this!
