NYX Single Shadows

NYX single shadows are well known for their quality.  The shadows are pigmented, silky soft, smooth, and come in a wide range of shades and finishes.  However, be aware that not all of these shadows are created equal.  Many people rave about these single shadows, but if you’re looking to buy some, I’ve heard numerous reviews that the shade called My Favorite Color is chalky, chunky, and not up to par with the other shades, so be aware.  With that said, don’t be put off because of that one shadow.  Many others are wonderful and amazing quality for around $6 per shadow.  These are the shades I have, their description, and some notes on each.  They can be found at nyxcosmetics.com and ULTA stores.
