What is the first thing that come your mind when I say Caribbean? Sea. Sand. Sunshine. Vacation. A GETAWAY! Isnâ€™t it? 😉 That is exactly how I felt when I laid my hands on this gorgeous palette from NYX” I dream of St. Lucia” .It is one of the palettes from the Caribbean collection. I had asked a friend to send me this palette from the US last Dec as it was not available anymore online. The bold colors scream out SUMMER! <3 Absolutely beautiful! 🙂
About NYX 5 Color Shadow I Dream Of St. Lucia:
Like a sunset blazing over a tropical beach, these collections each of five best-selling NYX eye shadow colors are undeniably dreamy. Each of the 10 different eye shadow palettes is inspired by an island getaway. Expect rich pigments, lasting payoff and jet-set glamour.
My experience with NYX 5 Color Shadow I Dream Of St. Lucia :
I Dream of St Lucia palette come in a sleek black rectangular box with five beautiful vibrant shades. Some of the beauties may not like the bold colors but personally I love it. I like to play around with funky colors. I would call it a tropical themed palette. It has a matte bright green shade, a satiny sea blue one, a sunshine yellow, a light pastel pink and a vibrant orange color. So colorful! J And there is a mirror and two applicator brushes in the box. Oh! There is a story about the “So called Applicators”! It was so bad that after several uses, the sponge from the applicators started to shed off like crazy and all that was left was the plastic stick. L With such a beautiful pigmented palette, they should have at least given some amount of attention to the brushes as well. 🙁 So I went shopping and got some eye shadow brushes for the palette.
Staying power: It last about 5 to 6 hrs although it tends to get a little powdery. A primer base can be used for a long wear.
Pigmentation: Super pigmentation. The most pigmented out of these are the blue and orange. The pink is a pretty pastel color which looks great for everyday wear.
Texture: Satin matte finish. A wee bit chalky but I have no issue with that. Applies smoothly and last long.
What I like about NYX 5 Color Shadow I Dream Of St. Lucia:
- Fun Colors
- Good pigmentation
- So many palettes to choose from
- Matte finish
- High quality product as such an affordable price
What I don’t like about NYX 5 Color Shadow I Dream Of St. Lucia:
- Little chalky
- Worst applicators ever.
Would I repurchase: Yes, no, maybe! A bit skeptical. But I would like to try the other palette as well. 🙂
