If NYX had their druthers, we’d all be shimmering like angelic fiends right about now. Their budget conscious 10-Color Palette in Haute Model ($11), one of four new palettes in the extensive 10-Color Palette line, houses a bevy of bestselling NYX shadows in dark green, blue, purple, gray and bronze, as well as two lighter pops of pink and teal.
The lighter shades seemed out of place to me at first, but I wouldn’t turn them away. Now I like the nice contrast they provide.
The shadows in this bargain beauty have a bold, hi-shine finish that demands attention, and every one, with the exception of the pink in the top row, apply with NYX’s signature buttery texture (the pink doesn’t feel as finely milled as the others to me).

Er, not sure what’s going on here…
I’m not crazy that NYX recently raised the price of the 10-Color Palettes (they went from $9.75 to $11), but I think they’re still a great deal. Considering the number and quality of colors and the variety in each, $11 isn’t bad.
