So I am pretty sure I'm in love with NYX Pearl Mania loose eye shadows. Initially I did only purchase these shadows for their brightness because I was looking for bright shadows to do rainbow eyes with and these run about $2.99 so I was excited to find something cheap just in case it didn't work, it wouldn't be a lot of money wasted like if I bought bare minerals. I was more than pleasantly surprised. I was ecstatic. The colors are true to how they look in the bottle, pigmented, bright, soft, blend-able. Its everything I want that even some 15 dollar loose shadows never gave me.
I seem to be catching myself gravitate towards these shadows on a daily basis. I was always nervous doing bright makeup and leaving the house. I never thought I was one of "those girls" The ones who rock the bright, crazy makeup while they're out and about but these shadows have changed that. I now look to see how I can use these shadows so I can have a more interesting eye look. And Nude is by far my favorite highlight of all time (right now. ha)
I am definitely planning on going out and buying all of the rest of these shadows. I think they'd be a great addition to any collection, especially if you love loose shadows.
Pros: Many color options, pigmented, blend-able, soft, price, the pearl finish <3
Cons: Can fade quickly, can go on streaky.
I recommend these to everyone, because every girl needs loose eye shadow. And for the price, I think the cons can be overlooked, besides, the cons can be fixed easily.
