Most Helpful Positive Review Fantastic Color Payoff
I love these because they have a good range of shades and good color payoff. I find they work best if you start with an eyelid primer/concealer as base. The powder is very fine and most of the colors are super buildable. Some of the more pearlescent shades I've found hard to build/have lower color pay off, but really great shimmer. I like to use these alongside the Nyx glitters and they actually blend really well. I've also used the Nyx Multi-tasker to use these as eyeliner or more focused eye application and it works well. Watch out for fallout when using these dry, but I usually do my eyes pre-foundation/concealer so I can do a quick sweep up.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not worth it
I got this in the shades Vermouth and Kryptonite.
The first thing I noticed was that the jars were smaller than one would think, by just looking at the website pictures. Oh well, if this was good product, it would be worth it.
The trouble began when I took off the seals from these jars.
Firstly, the sifters hardly let any pigment out.
Then, what I was able to get out of the jars, ended up irritating my skin immediately upon putting my skin swatches on. (To be fair, I've recently been hunting for some good emerald green eyeshadows, and about 50% of all the ones I've tried, from this brand and others, have irritated me. On the bright side, there are options from this brand that don't do that to me.)
On top of this, even if I could handle it- the pigmentation was pretty poor. I now see that NYX has a pigment primer. But why get that when you can get an already-functioning pigment?
Thankfully, I was able to return these pigments. I got NYX's Nude Singles Eyeshadow in Contort with the returns money, and though it isn't the best thing in the world- it has far better pigmentation, is far cheaper, and my skin doesn't itch so much with that instead.

Bright colors that seem fairly true to shade. Must be mixed with a medium or put over creme shadow to get the lasting power and vibrancy, but can be used without to highlight or add a dust of color.
Vikki from West Virginia
Just wow! This pigment is gorgeous and works well with the glitter adhesive. Always a favorite.
Good for the price

I've been searching for a good all white pigment and unfortunately this wasn't it. It's very pretty and buttery but has a gold shift to it.
Dandy from Battleground WA
I love the "Pigments". Im a flight attendant and have little time, if any, to "refresh" my makeup during the day. These pigment colors stay on all day and the for my overnight. I am very impressed!
If you're looking to look GORGEOUS then buy this!

This is the prettiest eye shadow I own and I don't ever enjoy putting eye shadow on!!!! The color is so vibrant
Def trying all of the colors
Crystal from Maryland
I love this line! I wore this color out for my birthday and I received so many compliments. The color lasted all night, I also wore the Nyx glitter primer which is super tacky which holds the pigment.
literally in love
Nikki from tucson AZ
I've been using this almost everyday I add it to whatever look I'm going for and it just adds depth to the eyeshadow. or even just with a light pink shadow under it.
Bought for a friend. Now I want them all.
Lupus Canis from Twin Falls, ID
My friend asked me to get her a light blue and sparkle eyeshadow for a little girl's mermaid birthday makeup she was doing. Turns out these pigments are so pigmented and swipe on so good! No fall out, doesn't fall all over when you dispense it, and it stays put without primer. We got the shade Peacock, and the only downside was it kind of stains the skin for a bit after removing it. But I'm sure if you use something else underneath it, nothing will happen. I'm very satisfied with the product and it wasn't even for me.
I would buy again , it shows up really good

Good very easy to use
Not Bad For The Price
Attila The Shopper from Erlanger, Ky
This is a lot of fun, but I wouldn't use this daily, unless you have a lot of time to get ready, as it takes a little bit of time to prepare. It's highly pigmented, and it has staying power once applied. However, there's not much product in the jar, hence the four-star rating. Still, give this a shot if you want to try something new. You won't regret it.
Love the colors

I would buy again. The colors are vibrant. Although a few of them were clumpy, instead of powdery, perhaps they were exposed to humidity.
Wow. Wow. Wow!
Kass from Pennsylvania
I used this with my Nyx glitter primer and wowww the color shine and pigment was incredibly beautiful. Definitely will be using it to do peacock or galaxy inspired makeup looks. Stunning!!
YOU NEED THIS
Lex from Houston
Beautiful pigments that look so pretty, bright and glittery. This is a dupe for sooo many high end pigments!! And product will last you a long time for a very good price. The pigment is thin and easy to wear with the nyx glitter glue and I usually remove it with an oil base makeup remover.
Amazing especially for the price
Angelic Faces MUA from St. Louis,MO
This pigment is Amazing especially for the price!!! It's super shimmery and goes on great as a sparkly topper or as a single eyeshadow. The color payoff is amazing. It's the perfect bridal color for your kit.
Red from MA
This is SUPERRRR pigmented (as one would expect from loose shadow). It applies super easy and there isn't really any fallout -- kinda patted it on. Definitely buying again in another shade.
Cassie from Charlotte NC
More like a light highlight or shimmer rather than a dark pigment. Looks more white than pink but very shimmery
Fabulous Eye shadow
Very beautiful color from undisclosed
Love the color of the pigment. Perfect for every occasion. Love lilac color

I have been looking for this type of eyeshadow and color for quite a while. It did not disappoint. It goes on easy, with no mess and stays on all day.
Aeval from Otis Orchards, WA
Been awhile since purchased NYX Pigments, but now seeing a little shaker style bottle keeps mess down.
This color is gorgeous. Used with NYX Orange Pearl to see how they might offset each other.
Laura from Massachusetts
These are so beautiful on the eyes i love them
I will always buy this product.

I purchased the shade "Brigten Up" . Since I purchased it in store, I knew exatcly, how it looked, however, the swatch online is incorrect - the colour is yellow shimmer with a tiny bit of gold. Still, if you have warm - toned skin, this is an AMAZING highlighter for you! It is shimmery, very pigmented and looks incredible under any kind of light. If you are from light to deep dark skin tone - this could become your favorite highlighter. I'm giving it four stars because the swatch online does not match up and it is a bit difficult to use it.
Alexis from Los Angeles, CA
The glitters are beautiful. They apply pretty easily and look great! I thought that I'd be giving this 5 stars, but then I took it off. It's so scratchy that it hurt taking it off. I'd recommend it for extremely special occasions, but not like an everyday thing.
A little goes a long way
K@ from Utah
I love this line of loose pigments and their colors. Some powders are ultra-fine and others have larger glitter pieces, which is hard to tell online. I bought the color "Vegas Baby" online hoping it was a fine powder like some of the others to use for highlight, but it has larger glitter pieces that are not ideal for that. Still a beautiful color regardless.
Bobbie Lynn from Santa Barbara, CA
Goes on with ease and very pretty color. I have been using their product for many years.
