It’s been a while since I reviewed an eyeshadow palette and I’ve had the NYX Modern Dreamer Palette sitting in my collection for a while now. Given the high price tag on this palette, I thought it was worth getting a review up so you can decide for yourself if it’s worth the money or not.
This NYX palette comes in standard plastic packaging with a clear lid so you can see the shades inside. I quite like the simplicity of it but there’s no mirror or anything and the packaging doesn’t feel as premium as you’d expect for the price.
This eyeshadow palette retails for £35 in the UK. NYX is definitely a top-tier drugstore brand and you can expect to pay more for their products but £35 for a NYX palette just sounds way too high to me. You are getting 40 shades for your money and 40g of product, which isn’t bad compared to some other brands.
I opted for the Modern Dreamer Palette over their other Swear By It Palette in the same style because I thought the shades looked more interesting. I’m a sucker for a pop of bright colours even if I hardly ever use them.
Over eye primer or concealer, I have no problem with these shades fading or wearing off like you get with some cheaper eyeshadows. Overall, this does feel more like a highend palette.
The NYX Modern Dreamer Palette has a bit of everything from brights to neutrals. £35 is a lot to invest in a drugstore palette but if your collection is lacking something like this, I do think it’s worth the money and I’m really impressed with the quality.
