NYX Box of Eye Shadows 112 Colors Review and Swatches

Hello everyone! I have been m.i.a because I had finals for the spring semester last week and today I began summer school. Yes how fun, right? In all honesty I do love school! I have class Mon-Thursday and will only be working Fri-Sun only for this summer semester, so I hope that I can start posting more often. I'm a true drugstore makeup junkie hoarder and I would love to share more reviews and swatches. So lately, I have been experimenting with my eye shadows and just looking through my makeup box trying to find old gems. I ordered the NYX Box of Eye Shadows of 112 Colors on Amazon a few months ago. Here is the link to it. I purchased it for $44.99 with free shipping. I don’t know how I could have had this amazing box of shadows put away for so long! The colors are pigmented and have very little fall out. There are two “layers” in this box. The first has a variety of colors that are matte and shimmery, neutrals, browns, nudes, and blacks. The second layer also has both shimmery and matte shadows with a variety of more intense colors like red, hot pink, blue, green, yellow, purple, and orange. This box is amazingly versatile! Unfortunately, I did drop the box of shadows a few times so it doesn't look that pretty anymore and a few eyeshadows fell out because of my clumsiness. I apologogize, but none the less I still think that this is an amazing product. Here are the swatches I hope you enjoy and feel free to leave any comments or questions!
