Hi my lovelies, today I wanted to shout about the NYX Ultimate Palette which is AMAZING! It takes a lot for me to like all the colours in one palette and this is definitely one I LOVE without a doubt. I have the ‘neutrals’ palette rather than the ‘Brights’ palette because I get a lot more use out of neutral brown shades everyday rather than the vibrant bright colours in the other palette.
To start with, this palette is exclusive to Selfridges and that is where I got mine. It is also available online here. The range of colours in this palette are excellent, you have a good mix of light colours to use on your eyelid, medium shades as transition shades and darker colours for the crease to add more depth. These eye shadows last ages! – I apply my eye shadow in the morning, before work at about 8am and it lasts all day, without any fading.
The palette reminds me of a Rubix cube in some ways because the colours come in fun little squares in the palette. Rubix cubes were always fun and exciting to play with and this palette gives me the same excited feeling whenever I use it.
Size-wise the palette is perfect to store away neatly at home or pack in your suitcase to take away on holiday. I love the fact that it has a hinged see-through lid so you can see all the colours straight away and are not in danger of losing the lid! This is definitely a palette I will be taking away with me on holiday.
Price wise this palette is super affordable at £16 and you get 16 colours that are all really good quality for the price. As with all NYX products, the price point is affordable and the products are of excellent quality and actually work. In my opinion, there are so many other high street brands out there with high street prices but lack the quality and longevity. But NYX has it all, which is why this brand has become so popular. NYX features in Boots and Selfridges London indicating it has a place in both markets. I wouldn’t call it a luxury brand as such but I would call it an excellent, everyday, reliable and affordable brand – the type you know you can reach for in a rush and get perfect results every time! This goes for all NYX products, from their Soft Matte Lip Creams to their Colour Correcting Palettes, to their brushes and contour palette (which again is AMAZING). While I am a high end luxury makeup junkie, this is definitely a brand I love to use and will continue doing so.
I hope you enjoyed reading this review and if you are thinking of trying the NYX Ultimate palette, I definitely recommend you do.
