    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Baked Eyeshadow:

    I love these shadows! I have them so far in Shira and Mademoiselle (got them when Ulta had the NYX line on sale 40% off) and love them both. I've worn them separately and together (they compliment each other well). They're kind of sheer, but you can build up the color. I highly suggest applying them wet and/or apply the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk to your lids first to make the color stand out more. I definitely plan on getting more of these in other colors!

    good highlighter

    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Baked Eyeshadow:

    Found that this product is an awful eyeshadow, but a good eyeshadow. The light champagne colors look natural as a highlighter.

      Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Baked Eyeshadow:

      I was trying to find a match to an older NYX eye-shadow. This color was a light, shimmer, beige color. It came off gray on my skin. Not what I was expecting and was a let down.

        Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Baked Eyeshadow:

        I only have the really light one (I think it's called snow)... it's pretty, and I use it as both a shadow and a highlight. Pigment isn't great; I used it wet and dry and didn't see much of a difference either way. Perhaps the brighter or darker colors are better.

            This is a baked eye shadow, so it is best to use it wet or else you won't see much pigmentation. I've gotten several compliments on my eye make up when I wear this shadow!

                  Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Baked Eyeshadow:

                  I originally bought the color I did because it was a cool mix of plum and copper- two colors I wear regularly. It is very easy to apply, but you might have to brush on a few layers in order to get the intensity you're looking for. I noticed that after a long day, the shadow tends to cake in the crease of the lid. A little smudging fixes that right up though!

                  Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Baked Eyeshadow:

                  I have porcelain skin and I purchased this eyeshadow in Easy Rider to try it out. Primarily, I used it wet, over primer as a base and I thought that it worked beautifully. However, it was difficult to get the right level of moisture for a good application. Applying this product dry is pretty much obsolete. Also, despite never traveling, it cracked and broke up to a degree that discourages continued use. I believe there are an array of better budget eyeshadows available, but I would recommend giving this a try if you're interested in a particular shade and aren't afraid of a little bit of mess--it's not a complete loss, it just won't be something you use everyday.

                    I am having a hard time applying this shadow! It does not easily go on the brush is it meant to be used wet? No matter how I try it I can not get it to easily get on the brush or even my finger. It seems so hard and dry.

                      A:

                      Baked shadow tends to be hard on the surface, but once you get through the top layer, you get true, intense color payoff! Apply dry for an even wash of color or wet for a more dramatic look.
