NYX Single Eyeshadows: Greens and Peaches

This is the last of my NYX Single eyeshadow swatches - I'm going to do the lip products on the weekend - lots of round lipsticks and lip pencils!

Oddly enough, as much as I love green eyeshadows, I don't really love any of these. They're nice, but nothing WOW. The peach/red ones have a few that I use quite frequently - they're easy colours for an all-over swipe on work days when I don't have time to mess about.

You can see the neutrals here, the blues and purples here, and the pinks here.

  1. You know, you've got me wondering why I bother with MAC anymore.

  2. Hello! I found you through Jen's (@My Funny Valentine) blog

    I love Salmon and Shimmer! But I'm on a spending ban :( So you're the closest I get to NYX Single Eyeshadows (for now!) :)

  3. Jen, these are really great eyeshadows for the price. Definitely worth trying! :-)

    Hi Emily! I'm on a spending ban too, you can probably see why judging by how many NYX eyeshadows I have, and - uh - how many of them seem kind of similar in shade. ;-)

    I love, love, love NYX Single Eyeshadows. I stock up every time there's a sale. :P

    And definitely: they're great eyeshadows especially for the price.

  6. Hey Dee,

    Thanks for taking all those swatches. Herb and Hunter Green are my two favourite eye shadows from NYX's greens.

    And while I rarely go for peach eye shadows, your swatches made me reconsider. They look very pretty and have a little shimmer to make them interesting.
