NYX Butt "Naked" Eyes Palette

Hi everyone,

I’ve pulled this back out for my January makeup basket and decided to give you all a full review with swatches. I think NYX products can really be hit or miss, and this palette contains some of each.

The cool things about this product are the packaging, and that it has both eye and cheek products. The lid lifts to reveal a full mirror and fifteen eyeshadows, and the bottom compartment slides out for the four blushes, bronzer, and two highlights.

I was hoping to use this product for traveling, but it’s a bit thick and doesn’t feel totally secure. I also haven’t spent much time with the products, which this month will hopefully fix.

Eyeshadows

2014-01-15 15.53.07

2014-01-15 15.52.54

Shade 1: a pretty buttery matte ivory

Shade 2: a light warm brown that’s difficult to build but has nice dimension

Shade 3: a gritty and sheer light pink

Shade 4: a chalky light tan

Shade 5: a very nice shimmery white

Overall 2.5/5 (the .5 is for that brown, which isn’t too pigmented at the first go but looks lovely once it’s built up)

Shade 6: a difficult light greyish-taupe

Shade 7: a gorgeous pink with gold shimmer, it’s beautifully pigmented and smooth

Shade 8: a really nice shimmery light purple, also very pigmented and smooth

Shade 9: a slightly difficult light brown, very similar to shade 2

Shade 10: a pretty smooth matte dark grey

Overall 3/5

2014-01-15 16.00.16

Shade 11: a really good matte medium brown

Shade 12: a smooth shimmery silver

Shade 13: a nice matte black

Shade 14: a nice matte brown

Shade 15: a shimmery deep purple that doesn’t really come off purple, but black

Overall 4.5/5 (that last one is really nice, just not what it looks like in the pan!)

Cheek products

Blush 3: a matte bright pink that takes some effort

Blush 4: a matte coral pink

2014-01-15 16.43.16

Bronzer: a little orange-toned but pigmented

Highlight 1: a chalky white-based highlight with shimmer

Highlight 2: a slightly chalky bronze-based highlight with shimmer

Overall thoughts

This palette is pretty good, but it isn’t something I’d give to someone new with makeup. It has cool packaging and the products that are good are really good, but there are quite a few duds in this palette. In general, the darker shadows are great quality, and about half the cheek ¬†products are just as good. I’m pretty disappointed by the cheek products, considering their single blushes are bestsellers.
