NYX The Runway Collection: "Secret World" : Swatch & Review

Review by Ria
So I am right now on an online shopping spree..I have parcels arriving for me since the past 2 weeks(nyx, urbantouch, mua and coastal scents). In my NYX haul, I got six 10 colour eyeshadow palette from NYX. Prior to this the only NYX product that I had tried was the lip lacquer pot.

About:

Craving purple peepers? New takes on neutral? Or shades handpicked to flatter your eye color? You asked—and we delivered. After so many NYX fans requested an eye palette containing 10 eye shadows, we designed this version.

 

Look no further than these scintillating eye shadow palettes inspired by runway trends and modern style. Available in 16 different color combinations, and sleek enough to fit into a clutch, you’ll likely want more than one. The shades are wearable, covetable and fashionable. Expect rich, lasting pigments and glamour.

Ingredients-
Mica, Talc, Zinc Stearate, Mineral Oil,2-Ethylhexyl  Palmitate, Tridecyl  Trimellitate, B.H.T., Methylparaben,and  Propylparaben. MAY CONTAIN: Manganese Violet (CI 77742) Brown IronOxide (CI 77491/2/9), Ultramarine Blue (CI 77007), Ultramarine Pink (CI77007), D&C  Black No.2 (CI 77266), Chromium Oxide Green (CI 77288),FD&C Yellow No.5 (CI 19140:1), Red Iron Oxide (CI77491), FD&CBlue No.1 (42090:2), Yellow Iron Oxide (CI 77492), Black Iron Oxide (CI77499), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), or Mica (CI 77019).
There are 16 palettes available and I will be reviewing SECRET WORLD palette.
Price: It retails for $10 on nyx site and available on urbantouch for Rs 1100. I got it for Rs 600/- incl. shipping.
All the shades have some shimmer in it and a description of the shades-

 

Top row
Frosty champagne with shimmer, yellowish orange with shimmer, shimmery peach, orange with shimmer, dark brown with shimmer.

 

 

Bottom Row
Grassy green, dark olive with shimmer, lime green, dark green, minty green.

 

 

I have tried to describe the shades as best I could. All the shades are beautifully pigmented and I wear it on a primer for a more intense look. It easily lasts on me for good 6 hours but I see a little bit of creasing after 4 hours or so. All the shades are shimmery so I don’t reach out for it for daily wear much. The shades are creamy and one stroke is enough to get the required color and blends well.
Also the packaging is black, sleek, has an inbuilt mirror and travel friendly. Rs 600 for 10 beautiful eyeshadows is a steal.
Some Close ups!
