    Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Cool Neutrals Ultimate Shadow Palette:

    These colors are slightly more muted than the photos I looked at on screen which at first made me hesitant, but once I tried them I do like them a lot. There is a broad range of cool-toned mattes which are a lot harder to find in most palettes. I would wear this for my every day palette. It's not the most "pigmented" but the color payoff is better than most drugstore shadows. And it blends great! Cannot complain.

      Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Cool Neutrals Ultimate Shadow Palette:

      I wanted this so badly because of the colors. Played around with different combinations but by the end of the day they tended to wear off. I used a nyx shadow base even. I will still use this pallete because of the color and I realize things work well for some and not others, perhaps someone else will have no problem with it lasting for them. I will continue to buy and try their products.

        Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Cool Neutrals Ultimate Shadow Palette:

        I was reluctant to try this after the disappointing Brights palette. It has all the colors I needed to complete a well rounded collection of eye shadow shades, so I purchased it. I'm so glad I did. It seems like NYX upped their game with this palette. It's on par with Sigma, Anastasia Beverly Hills, and Jeffree Star, in my opinion. I'm a makeup addict and hope to become a makeup artist in the future.

        Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Cool Neutrals Ultimate Shadow Palette:

        I was originally not going to purchase this palette; however, I was purchasing all the other ones so I figured why not. I am a very fair skinned person (no joke I glow, lol), so I was actually really impressed with this palette. I was a little wary at first because these are not colors you see everywhere and definitely unique - which is actually a really good plus of this palette. This palette provides a wide range of tones including some naturals, therefore you can create a vast amount of looks from it. Definitely use a primer, as with the other palettes in this series, there is some fallout - but honestly, if you use a good primer your golden. Overall, I am very pleased with this palette and would definitely purchase it again!

          Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Cool Neutrals Ultimate Shadow Palette:

          As a cool toned person, I was super excited for this palette. It's truly beautiful with some very unique colors that are hard to find. The amount of looks you can create with this is mind boggling as you can go from natural to dramatic with this wide range of tones. Most of the tones are indeed cool, but a few of the "natural" pigments looked more warm on my skin after I applied, but they are so close to my skin tone that it doesn't look bad. There is some fallout with these, and you need to use a good lid primer to get the true color pay off other wise you loose some pigment. But over all this was a fantastic purchase and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for something to compliment their cool/neutral toned skin or just looking for a more unique palette.

          some of the colors weren't true, the pigment needs to be deepened in some.

          Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Cool Neutrals Ultimate Shadow Palette:

          I like the color selection of this palette. It's hard to find cool colors in a palette, particularly at the drug store. Some of these colors I would argue are more warm (particularly in the lighter, highlighter shades) but overall this is a cohesive cool color scheme. However, several of the colors are patchy and difficult to work with - especially the darker colors. It was hard to get the color to show up smoothly on the eye and they were difficult to blend. It took a lot of time and effort to get them to work, but I could get them to work well enough to create some eye looks I liked. The shimmers were nice but they did crease more than other shimmers (even ones I've used from NYX). If you're willing to work with it it might be worth it for the colors, but I found it to be too expensive and too much hassle. The only reason I might keep it is to use it for travel since it's very compact and included lots of colors in a range of tones and finishes.

          Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Cool Neutrals Ultimate Shadow Palette:

          Loved the variety of colors on this palette and so far it has not disappointed! The color is not TOO pigmented (which I prefer, so that I can layer if needed) but it definitely shows up on darker skin pretty well. Needed to put in a little extra effort to blend. The many colors means I don't need to keep buying different colors which is exactly what I was looking for. I use some of these colors for work...purples etc. The darker shadows can of course be used for a nighttime look. I also purchased the warm neutrals palette which is a great complement to this one. Lasts mostly throughout the day, but I would suggest using primer for an all day look with these.
