Nyx Nude Matte Eye Shadow in Stripped is described simply as black. Ulta says "NYX signature Nude Matte Shadow delivers a richly pigmented matte finish to create everyday eye looks and strong styles for nights on the town" NYX Says "Unzip that picture perfect look by using the Nude Matte Shadow available in 21 various brilliant shades. The silky texture of each shadow applies and blends smoothly with the touch of your finger tips or your favorite eye shadow brush."
Overall, this is a pretty average shadow. It's not creamy or super pigmented, but, it's not bad. I don't regret buying it, but it's not my favorite black shadow. I prefer Blackout from Urban Decay.
In the swatch I used 2 swipes on the left, 1 swipe in the middle and 2 swipes with an eyeliner brush on the right. As you can tell it's not the blackest black, but it's okay. It's a good soft black for people who don't like the harsh dark black color. You can also tell by the middle & right swatch that it isn't the most even and has some fall out. On the eyes though, it looks good over eye liner or to add a bit to the top lid to make the lashes appear thicker. I'm also more accepting with this because all blacks I've experienced have been this color and a little chalky.
