NYX Prismatic Eye Shadows

So, Ulta had another 20% off coupon going on, but I couldn't use it on prestige brands, so I was lurking around the NYX section for a while when I found their new Prismatic Eye Shadows.

They have a metallic finish and come in a range of colors, so I bought up a few, hoping they would be good, cheaper replacements for Kat Von D's Metal Crush shadows, and I was not disappointed.

They are very smooth, very pigmented, and verrrry pretty! Swatches are below.

Mermaid, which actually has a nice iridescent sheen to it


Blue Jeans

Punk Heart


Liquid Gold
And look how cute the little clasps are:

For those of you who like to crunch numbers, these are $6 each for 0.043 oz, while the Metal Crush eyeshadows are $21 for 0.10 oz.

I only own one Metal Crush shadow (Danzig), and I really like it, but at $21 a pop, it's kinda hard for me to collect them all. NYX Prismatic Shadows are a nice alternative, and since they're not a prestige brand, you can use ALL THE COUPONS if you buy them from Ulta. Can't beat that!
