NYX’s One Night in Morocco smokey eye palette is infused with eight smokey colors from pale sand to deep black, and everything in-between. It’s also got a medium colored concealer and little surprise pull-out drawer with four sheer pink lip glosses.

What I love about this palette is the inclusiveness it offers. You have a variation of looks from light and natural to super dark and sultry, and I like that they include the glosses. The concealer is a cute idea, but pretty limited since it will only work for certain skin tones.

I love the packaging, the small yet thick and sturdy glossy black containers. A fairly large mirror. Very cute.


L to R, first row: Pale white, light cool grey, dark black, medium cool taupe

The shadows in this palette had medium color payoff. They weren’t quite as opaque as some of their other ones I have swatched. However they still felt very smooth and finely milled. The darker the color, the more patchy they got, but they were not unworkable.


L to R, second row: Light vanilla/white, dark, cool chocolate brown, medium warm brown, light taupe

These ones applied a little less patchy and smoothly than the black and taupe in the first row. I especially love the second one here.


L to R: Bubblegum pink, raspberry pink, apricot, rose pink

All the lip colors were very sheer and looked pretty similar on my skin except for the apricot one. This is quite a few swipes of color to get it to show the differences on camera. I think they compliment the shadows nicely, but are a little too sheer for my tastes.

Overall:

I think this palette is nice, but not great. I am sure I already have colors like this in another palette. If you don’t though, and also like sheer lip colors and don’t mind working a bit with the colors then this might be for you!

What do you think about these colors?
