NYX Caribbean Collection I dream of Barbados Review and Swatch

Dear Ladies,

Hope summers are treating you well….it’s really getting hotter day by day..pheww
My review today is on an Eye shadow Palette from NYX.

My Opinion on the I dream of Barbados:
NYX is a brand with some excellent quality eye shadows. I dream of Barbados is part of NYX’s Caribbean Collection of eye shadow palettes which contains 5 eye shadows .This particular palette is cool-toned, purple and lilac themed. There is a light-medium pale lilac with a frost finish, charcoal-black with a silver sheen , Barbie pink with blue undertones , cool-toned bluish gray with a soft frost sheen, and a fuchsia-purple with a satin sheen.

Of all the palettes I swatched at the counter this was the most pigmented one.A mix of purple, pink, grey, and black.Great for a purple Smokey eye.Colors are great together. The pigmentation is super (unfortunately there is some fallout).

What NYX claims about I dream of Barbados : 

Like a sunset blazing over a tropical beach, these collections each of five best-selling NYX eye shadow colors are undeniably dreamy. Each of the different eye shadow palettes is inspired by an island getaway. Expect rich pigments, lasting payoff and jet-set glamour.

 Colors from left to right:
1. Light muted lavender shade with slight shimmer frost.
2. Charcoal black with shimmers.
3. Cool toned pastel pink.
4  Light silver grey with slight shimmers.
5. Medium purple with slight shimmer frost.

Price of NYX’s Caribbean Collection I dream of Barbados : For 8g Rs 850-950 Online in India.

Pros of I dream of Barbados:
·        Can keep experimenting with this palette. It seems like every-time I wear it I create a different look with it.
·        All 5 shades are well pigmented.
·        You can use the 3 colors for day and the other 2 colors to darken the eye makeup for night.
·        Really love how compact it is. And yes, I'm planning to get more the next time I buy from NYX again

Cons of I dream of Barbados:
·        Little fallout
·        Base has to be applied before applying them

Would I recommend I dream of Barbados?
I HIGHLY recommend this one. An Ideal Palette for a Purple Smokey Eye.
