NYX eyeshadow #10 Underneathe It All- swatch and review

Pin It now!

NYX matte eyeshadow #10 Underneathe It All
Just as promised I am going to be reviewing Nyx Matte Eyeshadow in Underneathe It all (spelling exactly how it is labeled). I have been looking for a soft brown shade for quite some time. I would have thought this post would be an easy one. I was completely wrong. FYI Shadow retails for 4.99 @ Ulta, where I purchased it.
NYX Underneathe It All swatched
I thought I bought a nice brown shade. After making some swatches, I frankly cannot categorize this shade! It is a mix between brown, gray, taupe.... Now you see my frustration?! The color was quite silky smooth, pigmented, not dusty at all. I want to say it is 100% matte, but I would be lying. It is more like 90% matte, 10% satin. It blends well and perfect for a daytime Smokey eye. Not an "in your face" color, if you catch my drift. As I mentioned, this is one of the best colors from the new Matte Shade range Nyx is providing. I really like it and would recommend to anyone looking for an office friendly taupe (y)/ brown/grayish color.
