Take a look!
NYX Suede Eyeshadow Palette is a limited edition palette so if you want it best jump on board now! The palette comes housed in a cardboard flip to open compact with eight shadows inside. I think the packaging is a bit flimsy as the window is merely a plastic film and isn’t plastic so this will wear down easily and won’t prove easy to travel with!

NYX Suede Eyeshadow Palette Swatches
Aside from the packaging issue I think the NYX Suede Shadow Palette is quite nice. As per the name the shadows do have a suede or velvet-like texture with a buttery, velvet feel that applies easily onto lids, blends out with very little fall out, and has excellent pigmentation on the first swatch. You will want to wear these under a good primer though as I find they do fade a bit at the five hour mark so a bit of primer will extend the wear and keep them looking fresh for a longer period of time. I’d liken the formula to Stila’s single pot eyeshadows as they have a nice velvety texture that reminds me of a cream shadow but is most definitely a powder. NYX did an excellent with the shades as well since they are all work well together which means you can easily create contrasting eye looks without a ton of no how. The colors are all Fall forward with a warmer selection of neutrals paired up with some very pretty jewel shades. Some of the shades do have a fair bit of shimmer to them but they blend out well with a fine, metallic finish!
If you’re looking for an affordable Fall Eyeshadow Palette option the NYX Suede Shadow Palette might fit the bill!
