NYX eyeshadow Pigment in Exquisite + A look!

I have always and always wanted to try NYX. Who doesn't? Their products look so beautiful especially the blushers and the lip products. A really long time back I had won a giveaway which I did a blog post about as well, held by the beautiful and really sweet Kayleigh from Couture girl  (such a beautiful blog!). One of the items she included was a NYX pigment in Exquisite which I loved the look of. After all this time, I decided to use it and thought I'd share my opinion and also a little look I came up with! :)

This is a stunning colour. It's a very rusty orange shade which looks almost bronze in the container but once swatched and applied it's more of an orange toned colour. I did layer the colour twice to get a vibrant finish but it really is beautifully pigmented. It lasts a long time on my lid as well. It's a very fine and soft powder that glides on once you start to apply which means it also blends really easily with other colours as well. Of course, because it's a pigment there is fallout but I used a flat eyeshadow brush to pat the colour on and blend with another shade. It's actually a very wearable colour. I didn't really think you could wear this a lot but it really depends how you use it. For example, you can simply dust it for a lovely shimmery finish or use it with colours to create a dramatic look. It's deffo a chrome eyeshadow because it's very metallic  and has that gorgeous duo chrome shine to it. I feel this colour would suit alot of skin-tones too because of the bronze undertone to it and will last a long time too because you need the tiniest amount! I also did a little look while just experimenting with this, which I hope you guys like! I used a dark purple colour and a little bit of a brown to soften the look and blended them with exquisite. Let me know what you guys think. :)

  15. Gorgeous look. I have some pigments but because they are a bit messy I end up never using them :)

  16. I love how there's sprinkled pigment on your lashes, might've not been done on purpose but it looks gorg! Also the color is really nice, a lot of nyx pigments are stunning, I'd go for them over mac pigments any day because of the lower price tag
