NYX Avant Pop: Surreal My Heart Palette - Swatches & Review

NYX just keeps impressing me with their products recently.

My friend Sarah (PrimpPolishShine on YouTube) has been raving about the Avant Pop palette in Nouveau Chic.  But when I went to Ulta to pick that one up, they were sold out.  (Don't worry...I'm still eyeing that one, and when I find it in stock somewhere, I'll definitely pick it up and review it!) But they did have the Surreal My Heart Palette.

The packaging is standard for drugstore eyeshadow palettes. It's a thick, sturdy plastic, and it snaps shut tightly, so it's functional and nice quality. The palette retails for $16.99 regular price and can be purchased on Ulta's website or in stores.

Surreal My Heart is a nice collection of neutrals and also fun colors as well.  The turquoise and blue really caught my eye but so did the yellow! That's just not a shade that you see a lot in palettes, especially ones from the drugstore.

As far as pigmentation on these eyeshadows...WOW is all I can say! I was SO impressed, not only when I swatched these, but also when I wore them on my eyes. They are very opaque, blend beautifully, work together nicely, and wear really well on the eyes. The only complaint I would have is that they are a bit powdery, so they will kick up product in the pan, making your palette look a little messy and also causing some fall out.  I'd just advise tapping off your brush and maybe doing your eye makeup first.

I am absolutely in love with this palette. It's one of my biggest surprise favorites so far for 2015. I can't wait to track down Nouveau Chic....and maybe even Art Throb (the 3rd palette in this line)!
