Today I will be writing about an Eyeshadow from NYX. The shade is called ocean. I do have other single shadows from NYX, the others I have are spring flower, tropical and cherry but this is my most loved one. NYX have a variety of products, they have a huge range of trios, 5 colored palettes, 10 color palettes and many bigger palettes and all the colors are amazing in quality. Like the other three shadows I of course loved this one too. To find out more about ocean please read.
Product quantity: 2.4g
Price: INR 375 but as usual I brought it on discount and this time it was a steal for me. I bought it for just INR 225 🙂
Packaging: NYX single eye shadows come in a little black packaging with a transparent lid. The packaging is sufficiently sturdy to protect the shadow from breakage (until it falls from a good height).
Mica, disostearyl malate, talc, mineral oil, sorbitan sesquioleate, butylparaben. May Contain: polymethyl methacrylate, methylparaben, dimethicone, squalane, magnesium stearate, zinc stearate.
Here’s a real collector’s item: You’ll be tempted to amass your own sensational color library of our richly pigmented eye shadows. Choose from 72 individual NYX Single Eye Shadow shades in shimmer, sheer, glitter, frosty, metallic or matte. Our pressed mineral eye shadows pack a color punch, are easy to blend and last for many hours.
My take on the product:
Ocean is a shade of grayish green, like a shade of green in the pan and looks more like a grey on the lids. It neither has any shimmer particles nor does it look matte when applied. It has a pearly finish to it. Starting with the pigmentation, ocean is decently pigmented; 2-3 layers are required to get the desired color. The shadow is smooth to apply and easy to blend. The staying power of the shadow is not as I expected, I expected it to be better than some other light colors of the same line, but it’s the same, it does stay for 2-3 hours without creasing, but after that it starts creasing. This situation is improved if a primer is applied before applying the shadow but I expected a little more.
The shadow does not have a fallout issue after application, but while dabbing the brush into the pan some of the shadow falls out as loose powder and gets wasted. So I won’t say that it has a huge fallout problem but wasting even a little product makes me sad :-(.
- Amazing quality for this price
- Smooth to apply
- Easy to blend
- Nice transparent packaging makes it easy to recognize the color.
- Decent staying power
- Average pigmentation
- A small amount of product may get wasted which dabbing the brush into the pan
I love NYX products but I am not completely satisfied this particular one, although I love the color and the fact that it is different but I expected it to be a little better. Overall it is an average product for me and I will try my best to convert the little problem areas into my favor.
Would I buy this product again?
This color would take some years to get finished so I can’t say that I will purchase the same color again but I will definitely buy these singles again (especially if I get them on so much discount :-))
Do I recommend this?
Yes I do recommend this product and this shade too. It’s a unique shade and I loved it.
