Greens and Olive with Nyx The Runway Collection In Secret World

Hey girls I have added a new eyeshadow palette to my eyeshadow collection and I’m super excited. 

Ta dah! NYX 10 color eyeshadow palette from The Runway Collection in Secret World. A super nice palette that consists of different shades of greens, golds and oranges. 

This pallet reminds someone of that first falling leaf that marks the end of summer and the start of autumn. How I wish its so true here as well.

These colors are pigmented and rich, and the application is very smooth. I also love how the shadows looked on my lids. I'm sure that the finish is just the same as most high-end eyeshadows over, well,  a really good eyeshadow base.

Swatch this! ^_^

Top Row: L-R
1-Creamy yellow neutral with small flecks of glitter
2- Golden tan frosty -creamy texture
3-Soft peachy frost
4-Muted Orange frosty-satin
5-Reddish brown-satin

Bottom Row: L-R
1-Fresh Spring green-satin
2-Dark muted forest green-Frosty
3-Lime Green-Frosty
4-Forest Green- Satin-matte
5-Light fresh white green

All in all, the shades got shimmers or are pearl like, some may have glitters in them (more of a hint of glitters in them). As I have said above, they are really pigmented and creamy. They are easy to apply as well,  it took me one swipe to do the swatch and you won't be sorry with the light shades along with the neutral ones and they have colors to share themselves.

What to like:
- Pigmentation - these palette are great! 
 -Price- great sheer variety you get in one little palette AND they are not knockout
 -Buildable - colours are buildable if you want a stronger look and a lot better than than most drugstore level brands have to offer in terms of variety.
 -dupe for Kat Von D's True Romance Palette in Ludwig (uhm, I think the shades are similar)

What not to like:
 -not available locally!!
- if you're not into greens, this is not for you

Overall, this a great palette with 10 complimenting shades of greens, olives and neutrals ^_^ Definitely a go to palette ^_^
