Review: NYX Winter in Moscow Silver Gray Smokey Look Palette

Hey girls! So for concluding the month of July, I will review the last product that I got that NYX released for the summer/fall time. It’s called the NYX Winter in Moscow Silver Gray Smokey Look Palette. In this $19.50 set, you get 2 blushes, 5 sheer lip glosses, and 14 shadows. The first blush is a soft baby pink which is matte and the second blush is a pinky dark coral with gold shimmers (it reminded me of NARS Orgasm). The shadows include several grays (both shimmer and glittery), a matte white, and several shades of black. The glosses are sheer and range in shades from clear base with gold glitter to a sheer mauve color. You can find these palettes on their website. Keep reading to see my thoughts on this product!

-The glosses are sheer and pair up nicely with the looks you can get by using the shadows.
-The shadows are nicely pigmented, last about 5-7 hours and are smooth when applied.
-The blushes are pigmented, lasted an entire working day on me and you don’t need that much for a flush of color.
-It’s very affordable and budget friendly!

-Since the powders and glosses are together, the glosses can get easily contaminated so you would have to keep the plastic in.
-There’s quite some fallout from some of the velvety shadows.

Overall review: I absolutely love this set especially because I’m a collector of palettes and this seems to be the best value. It's only $19.50 and you get amazingly pigmented shadows and blushes not to forget the glosses. I’m not being too picky about the glosses because they’re not meant to be super pigmented. They just look great with the looks you would make because for smokey looks, you’re always supposed to pair it up with a light lip and blush the colored that is provided in the palette. The shadows are very smooth, but you get tons of fallout so you might want to get some shadow shields. Thee blushes are ultra pigmented so you just need a little bit to get color. I overall love this palette and I hope you all can get in on this offer!

Rating: 9/10
