After finally receiving this NYX palette I realized I have almost all of their larger palettes in my makeup inventory. I purchased this palette when Cherry Culture had a 40% off sale on NYX items, and bought this for $15! I couldn’t wait to get my paws on this, and while once again my NYX love goes on, I was a little disappointed in this palette.
I love the huge assortment of neutrals and brights with matte or shimmery finishes. Most of the neutrals are shimmery with a few mattes, and the brights are matte. In case your wondering, did she swatch every single shade? I did! I swatched them all with and without an eyeshadow base to get an idea of how pigmented most of these eyeshadows are :).
I went in order of each row vertically…
*Warning: this is where it gets picture heavy :)*

Okay so this is my gripe, quite a few eyeshadows are duplicated on this palette. It’s not a big deal but for it to be called a 112 color palette is inaccurate. My other problem is the shadows are not equally pigmented even with an eyeshadow base! The majority of the neutrals are heavily pigmented, where as the brights are almost 50/50 with pigmentation.
All in all NYX has another good palette, that if you don’t have you should definitely pick up :)
