These are just ok. Not their best shadows by far. Not pigmented, a bit difficult to blend, and the texture is a bit chalky. And I really dislike when a brand as big as NYX, who might be a "drugstore" brand but is definitely on the higher end of that label, continues to put those useless applicators in their shadow palettes. No one but the most very beginner of makeup users do anything but toss them immediately! Either give me nothing, or put a decent shadow brush in there!
