Review & Swatches: NYX Baked Shadows & Blush

NYX is getting baked with a complete line of shadows and blushes! With 33 shades in the Baked Shadow line ($5.99), and 12 in the Baked Blush line ($6.99), there's a wide array of shades to choose from and I have 3:

Moonshine: a shimmery off-white shadow with a gold shift
Lavish: A shimmery golden bronze shadow
Ignite: A satin blush in muted orange

The shadows are powdery when applied dry, but still provide smooth, even coverage. Worn wet (I like to spritz my brush with a makeup setting powder), they gain intense pigmentation, lasting power, and become more multifaceted. The blush has a similar powdery texture when applied dry and takes some working with to get the pigmentation seen in the pan, but NYX claims you can use these wet as well - just dampen a sponge and stipple into the pan, then onto your cheeks.

Overall, you get a ton of product with each blush and shadow, so given the performance these are a great value. Just beware of how subtle the blushes are - medium to deep skin tones might want to plan on using some of these shades wet to get them to show up.
