The Nyx smokey palette is another product I managed to track down on ebay - luckily I found a UK seller and paid around £7 which isn't too bad. The smokey palette was released alongside a natural one - basically nyx's version of urban decays smoked and naked palettes.
The smokey palette features six shades - black with silver sparkles, matte black, dark plum, dark navy, gold-beige and white.
I really wanted to like this palette but sadly it just didn't live up to my hopes. Whilst the texture of the shadows feels soft to touch, they are quite dry - the duds being the first four shades (left to right). The beige and white both had decent pigmentation but the other four were really bad and really hard to blend. I tried them damp too and there was no improvement.
This was such a disappointment, I wouldn't recommend it. I think mua and sleek do similar palettes that perform better. I still want to try other nyx products - I've heard good things about their lip products, I just might avoid some of their palettes in future.
