NYX Ultimate Palettes
Just like us, these have just landed from LA and are exclusive to Selfridges.
Four new palettes each containing 16 shades in a mix of matte, shimmer, satin and metallic finishes.
The Brights palette..
How fun does this look!? Almost too pretty to use. A rainbow of colours each with a good pigment payoff, the blue and pink shades are particularly pigmented. The texture is slightly crumbly for certain colours (mainly yellow and green) and because of this there is a little fall out, but nothing major that can't be easily corrected.
Smokey and Highlight palette..
The smokey and highlight palette wasn't as impressive as the brights. The colours were a little muddy and took a bit more effort to build the pigment. With the exception of 6 shades which are matte, they are all shimmer or metallic finishes.
Really nice selection of golden, copper, chocolate and plum neutrals. The lighter shades were again a little crumbly but the deeper terracotta shades were rich and beautifully bold.
The palest neutrals in this palette are a really nice selection and there is an interesting duo chrome green/brown in this palette. Nice addition of the purple and teal for a colour pop.
Each palette is £16.00 and are available now only from Selfridges.
