These are smooth, pigmented, but a little powdery. You can sheer it out for everyday wear or pack on a little more for an intense glow! If you’re on a budget I do suggest trying this out.

Hit or Miss: NYX Rocker Chic Heart of Gold

2015-12-06 13.11.46 - Copy
The Rocker Chic Heart of Gold Palette ($17.99) contains 3 shimmer shades and 2 satin shades. This price point is quite high for this small palette with only 5 shadows. I was expecting some good quality shadows, but the shadows were a little disappointing.
The shadows are too soft to the point where they can be over blended and  look muddy. The shadows have okay pigmentation and it’s buildable but, the longevity is quite short even with a primer. The shadows started fading after 2 hours.
Overall: This palette was a complete MISS!
