Directions To Use: Use the New NYX dual ended custom designed eye shadow applicator or your favorite eye shadow brush to create a variety of eye expressions. One side of the applicator has a larger sponge applicator for covering more of the eye area easily while the narrow side of the applicator lines and defines smaller areas of the eye for finer details.

My experience with NYX Love In Rio Eye Shadow Palette Nighttime In Rio:

Packaging: The NYX trio palette comes in a black plastic square box packaging with a transparent window to see through the eye shadows. There is a cute bow crafted at the place from the palette opens. It works with a snap shut, click open mechanism. Overall the packaging is good.



Texture: The texture of these eye shadows is very soft and silky. There is no hassle in application. It sets to a pure matte finish. The black shade has some micro shimmers in it and has just a bit of fall out.

Pigmentation: The black shade in this palette has fine pigmentation, the blue shade lacks pigmentation but it can be worked with multiple dabs and the pink shade fares bad in the color pay off front. There is nothing wow to rave about their pigmentation.



My Take: The colors in the palette look well coordinated to create a dramatic, smoky look and these go well together in eye makeup looks.

Texture wise they are fine and allow easy application & blending but the palette disappointed me on the pigmentation front.

The pink shade seemed like it had no connection with good color pay off, the blue shade too lacked color pigments but it can be built up, it is only the black color that has got decent color pay off.

Overall it is an okay palette with average performance and not to forget a good eye primer can make all the colors work well.
