NYX Lid Lingerie Shadow Palette First Impressions Swatches Dark Skin

When I first started blogging, I was all about drugstore makeup as I was just discovering and exploring the wonderful world of makeup. I soon switched over to the high end side once I felt myself getting the hang of things but I can’t lie. I miss drugstore makeup! There’s a lot of new products and collections rolling out that are mighty tempting. Tempting enough to say skip the high end splurge and get back to saving a couple bucks!

I already know some of you are over there thinking, “How can you go back to drugstore from high end?!” Simple. The quality of drugstore products has gotten way better. I’m talking leaps and bounds. I never in a million years thought I’d be comparing a drugstore eyeshadow palette to my beloved Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette. But the day finally came when I took a leap of faith with the NYX Lid Lingerie Shadow Palette.

Ladies, this palette is a beast! The NYX Lid Lingerie Shadow Palette is small but mighty featuring 6 matte neutrals that are perfect for all skin tones. Especially my chocolate girls! The NYX Lid Lingerie Shadow Palette includes:

  • a light yellow beige 
  • a dusty purple mauve
  • a warm burnt orange
  • a neutral deep brown
  • warm peachy pink nude
  • deep brown plum

The color scheme is eerily similar to the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette. About 4 of the 6 shades in the NYX Lid Lingerie Shadow Palette are close dupes for a few shades in Modern Renaissance. Tempera is very similar to the top left shade in Lid Lingerie while the burnt orange and neutral brown are dead ringers for Realgar and Cyprus Umber. The dusty mauve shade also bares resemblance of Buon Fresco from Modern Renaissance. .

The NYX Lid Lingerie Shadow Palette has quickly become one of my favorite eyeshadow palettes because it’s small, convenient and surprisingly great quality. Shimmer eyeshadows are pretty easy to nail but mattes are much more tricky. So at 10 bucks, I was expecting the Lid Lingerie to be a little sheer, stiff and powdery but still workable. Boy was I wrong!

The NYX Lid Lingerie Shadow Palette is insanely pigmented with a soft, smooth texture that doesn’t kick up too much product when I tap my brush in the pan. Or leave any fallout as I’m tapping, sweeping and blending my heart out. Without a primer, the NYX Lid Lingerie Shadow Palette performs pretty nicely. The shadows showed well on my brown skin without much building and they were quite easy to blend. The NYX Lid Lingerie Shadow Palette was also able to get me through a full workday without a primer as well. I didn’t have any issues with creasing but I did notice some fading around the edges by the end of the day. Not bad at all!

However, when paired with a good primer the NYX Lid Lingerie Shadow Palette will knock your socks off. I’ve been using the LORAC Behind the Scenes Eye Primer (amazing!!) with the NYX Lid Lingerie Shadow Palette and it makes the colors more vibrant and even easier to blend so it literally takes me no time to create beautiful eye looks. The best part? The NYX Lid Lingerie Shadow Palette literally lasts all day with a primer. Yesterday, I had an extremely long day that required waking up at 5 a.m. and not making it back home until almost 7 p.m. Believe it or not, the NYX Lid Lingerie Shadow Palette pulled all the way through still looking fresh after 9 p.m. In fact, the pictures from this post were taken right before I finally removed my makeup for the night. That’s how great the NYX Lid Lingerie Shadow Palette can be!

On top of the stellar quality for the price, I have to pat NYX on the back for the color selection of the Lid Lingerie Shadow Palette. It’s very inclusive! From fair to deep, anyone can rock the NYX Lid Lingerie Shadow Palette and look fierce. The colors are perfect for natural everyday looks yet still allow you to kick it up a notch and get a little smoky. I’ve been reaching for the NYX Lid Lingerie Shadow Palette almost everyday because the colors are so perfect for my skin tone and the quality is quite impressive. I’m still scratching my head at how NYX popped out a palette this good for just $10! Whether you need an everyday shadow palette or not, the NYX Lid Lingerie is well worth a spot in your collection and you need to get your butt to Ulta or NYX to get it!
