I have been on the hunt for a good nude shadow for a while. If you remember, there were many duds in the ‘Dark Shadows Crimson Amulet NYX Palette’. I gave my beloved NYX another chance with their single matte shadows.
This is a nude beige. It is completley matte and called ‘Lap Dance’ which I just love. Their entire collection of mattes are named funny/dirty things like that. I love a good name.
For $4, these are affordable as a staple. They have a ton of other colors (20 ish in total) but I wanted something as a soft base and highlight color.
You can see it is matte, for sure. A little on the less pigmented side, but still workable. What I liked was that this wasn’t powdery and actually gives some color.
You can see the color here a little bit better. Sure, it isn’t the craziest color, but it is a great staple from a reliable brand and it performs decently.
Matte is lovely.
Final Thoughts: Nice basic, tounge-in-cheek name. Good price.
