I wear a smokey eye every day, regardless of what I'm doing. My best friend and I ran a 5K last year, and I showed up to the event with a fully done up face. (Minus falsies, of course! LOL!) Some think it's a bit much, but I have fun with it!
I really like NYX products. I only own a handful of eyeshadows from them, but I plan to get more. As many of you already know, NYX's shadows are, for the most part, smooth, easy to blend, and pigmented. The only shadow out of this lot that gives me any grief is Frosted Ocean. I've never experienced such horrible fallout in my life! That said, it's a very pretty color - regardless of where it lands on my face. Ha!

I used NYX's Eyeshadow Base in Skin Tone underneath all of the swatches shown above. I'm still on the fence about this product. Once blended in, it's just a bit lighter than my skin tone. It definitely brings out the true color of my shadows, but even when applied lightly, it creases. I don't have super oily lids... Has anyone else experienced this?
Have a great weekend, everyone!
