The eye shadow has soft, smooth and shimmery formula which is not chalky at all. It glides easily on my eyes. It is easily blendable and gives a pearlescent finish. It contains fine glitters which tend to fall out on my cheeks whenever I apply it. It does not crease at all and looks great for evening looks .


The pigmentation is very sheer. When applied dry, it gives a sheer wash of color on the lids with a pearly and sparkly finish. For increasing the color intensity it can be applied wet as well. But if you use a primer underneath the color payoff greatly improves even if used dry.

Staying power:

The staying power is pretty decent. It lasts for about 4-5 hours after which it starts fading evenly without creasing.


The packaging is neat and very pretty. It comes in a cute, round, black plastic compact with a transparent lid which helps in identification of the shade if you own multiple of these. It is very handy and light weight. There is no mirror or brush provided with the eyeshadow. I also love the diamond pattern imprinted on the eyeshadow and the silhouette pattern on the transparent lid.


My take NYX The Ultimate Pearl Eyeshadow:

NYX cosmetics The Ultimate Pearl Shadows have a wide variety of shades to choose from. Salmon pearl is a pretty shimmery dusty pink shade with fine silver glitters. It gives a pearlescent finish. The glitters are not chunky or look OTT but they tend to fall out on cheeks and around eyes a bit at the time of application which can be minimized if a good primer is used. So I always make sure to do my eye makeup first Beauty.

I like the soft and smooth formula of the eyeshadow. It applies smoothly and blends effortlessly. The pigmentation is sheer but it is quite buildable or it can be used wet to reach the desired intensity. The swatches above needed 2-3 swipes for the color to show up properly.

Without primer it stays on my slightly oily eyelids for 4-5 hours without creasing. The eyeshadow looks even better and intense over a base and stays for a long time without creasing or fading. I fell in love with this color instantly and it looks pretty on my black eyes Beauty. I usually use it in evenings or night outs as an all over lid color.

My likes: Smile

  • Soft and smooth texture
  • Pretty shade
  • Blends effortlessly
  • Decent staying power
  • Has shimmery formula (I don’t prefer using matte eyeshadows)
  • No creasing
  • Can be applied wet or dry
  • Cute packaging

My dislikes: Frown

  • Sheer pigmentation. It could have been better.
  • A bit pricey
  • A bit of fall out
  • Doesn’t have mirror or applicator
  • Contains parabens

Final Verdict:

NYX The Ultimate Pearl Eyeshadow in Salmon pearl is a pretty dusty pink shade which gives soft and pearlescent finish. The texture is soft and easy to blend. The pigmentation is sheer and can be built up or used wet for more intense effect. It contains fine glitters which tend to fall out a bit but can be minimized using a primer. It lasts for good 4-5 hours even without primer. Highly recommended to beauties who love shimmery eyeshadows.

Rating: 4.9/5
