The Nyx Ultimate Shadow Palette in Brights consists solely of sixteen bright and colorful shadows with a variety of finishes.
The Nyx Ultimate Palettes are fairly small and come with a clear lid, which I like. I have never been much of a fan of Nyx’s shadow palettes, but this one really impressed me, so I had to pick it up. I actually got to visit the Nyx store in the Mall of America, which was really cool. Some of the shadows need a bit more building up than others, but for the most part, these shadows have some pretty intense pigmentation (especially the bottom 2 rows)! On the eyes, these shadows blend out amazingly well, especially when you consider how colorful they are. Of course this kind of palette is not for everyone, but if you are really into makeup, a color selection like this can come in handy for particular looks, or if you just want to have some fun with a bright eye look. I love incorporating a shade or two with a fairly neutral look, and have actually found myself reaching for this palette more than I thought that I would.
