The headline is a tease, but you really can get an exceptional eye shadow palette with 24 colors for just $15.00. . The Wicked Dreams Palette by NYX Cosmetics is the stuff dreams (wicked or otherwise) are made of, for those who love to play around with lots of eye shadow colors, but don’t want to spend a fortune to do so.
The shadows are mostly Earth tones in shimmer and matte finishes, plus a perle here and there. But there is also a trendy lemon yellow (seen on eyes on the European runways) a bold teal, a light and deep green (mint and moss), plus some deep accent colors and liners including charcoal, chocolate, blackened navy, ink and plum. All 24 squares of shadow are nestled into a slim, long, black compact with nice interior mirror and two dual-tipped sponge applicators.
The colors are mostly highly pigmented and they seem to stay true to color, and where you put them, for hours. The palette just seems so extraordinary for just $15.00. NYX offers their products to consumers at affordable prices, and in this era of watching one’s beauty budget, that’s a great thing. No wonder the drag queens on Ru Paul’s Drag Race covet the winner’s stash that includes a healthy (or lifetime) supply of NYX Cosmetics. But you don’t have to be a drag queen to love these.
With Valentine’s Day nearly here, create some “wickedly” sexy looks with these shadows. If the eyes are the window to the soul, your special someone will know just how you feel!
