A while back I read on a blog or forum or somewhere in my travels that the colours in NYX eyeshadow trios are different from the single eyeshadow colours of the same name. It was one of those trivial bits of information that I tucked away in my head somewhere, and I was reminded of it again the other day while looking at femputer's NYX Trio swatches. I didn't think I had any doubles to compare them, but this morning I was rummaging around for something else and discovered that I do actually have one - Root Beer.
Root Beer is the colour on the far right of the trio, which is Barely There/Champagne/Root Beer, and you can see just from the photo above that it's different to the single eyeshadow. Now check out the swatches:
L-R: Trio Root Beer, Single Root Beer.
They're completely different! I don't understand why NYX would do that - it seems really weird.
Do you have any doubles of the NYX single/trio eyeshadows? Are they different?
