NYX Roll On Shimmer for Spring 2012 Swatches & Review
This spring NYX Roll On Shimmers are all about color for eyes, face and body.
These loose powders come in a hard plastic tube with a roller applicator. There are sixteen colors in all, and all leave you with a whole lotta shimmery color!
If using as an eyeshadow (which is the only way I would ever use them), you can use directly from the roller, however it can get a bit messy that way! I prefer to roll some onto my hand then use either my finger or a small brush to pat it on my eye. Using a shadow primer definitely helps it stick to your lid better.
There will be fallout. Oh yes. There always is with loose powders, but it’s not that hard to clean up (or do it before all your other makeup).
Pink, Olive, Purple
Pink is a medium cool toned pink with silver shimmer.
Olive is a bright medium olive green with yellow shimmer.
Purple is a deep grape purple with silver shimmer.
Light Blue, Sea Foam, Green
Light Blue is a light aqua blue with silver shimmer.
Sea Foam is a medium blue/green with silver shimmer.
Green is a vivid green with silver shimmer.
As mentioned above, there is fallout, but you get such good color payoff! They come out pretty easily from the container and you only need a little and it goes a long way. They are soft, not gritty and pretty easy to blend out to make less saturated. Or you can add more for even more color! Over a primer they last as long on me as a regular shadow.
Pricing: $4.50 for 0.052 oz.
