This is a good palette for anyone who likes color and wants to give it a try. It isn't the easiest to use because not every color is the same formula; some oxidize, some are powdery and others aren't even pigmented. I definitely don't think it's worth the price, but for someone who wants to give color a try it is a decent palette. I wouldn't suggest this for brown women of color either, just because you may as well purchase something more pigmented. I really did like the red eyeshadow in the upper left hand corner of the palette, it's the only one that didn't give me trouble.
I used this with a great primer and excellent brushes. Not the best, but it is beginner friendly. Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow PomadeL'Oréal Paris Infallible® Silkissime EyelinerApple iPhone 6s

Review for: Brights more...
Before I purchased the ultimate brights palette, I really didn't have too much experience using bright, vibrant colors. I wanted something I could use to practice but also wanted something that was good enough quality where I would continue to use it. This palette was perfect! I was honestly really surprised and pleased with the pigment and color pay off. They obviously work a lot better with a primer but best results are with a white base. I use the NYX jumbo pencil in milk on my lid before applying the shadows. Not only does it help the shadows stay on longer but the colors are brighter and more vibrant. All the shadows work equally as well and are consistent. It comes with 16 shadows, a mix between matte and light shimmers. Love how this palette has different shades and tones of multiple different colors. These shadows are harder/firm but they are soft to touch. Very blendable. So obsessed with this palette. Totally different then anything I have and such a great addition to my collection! Best NYX eyeshadows

I fell in love with this online. I was shopping for new eyeshadows and this just jumped out. I do EDM go-go dancing and have to do a lot of bright looks. This pallette has insane color pay off and is more than worth the investment. I love how easy they blend and how great the colors look. They are a smooth soft texture which is so nice. If you love bright colors and want a small but amazing palette this is it.

This is an amazing pallet if your looking for something pretty cheap but with good pigment. I use this pallet to do my sfx makeup and anything else its the colors are very build able and aren't patchy. It has a really good formula for dark colors like purple its very impressive for a drugstore palette. Another good thing about this pallet the colors don't have a lot of fallout and are very easy to blend out.  I would recommend this pallet to anyone looking for a cheap ($20) brightly colored pallet with good pigment.

I purchased theirs NYX brights eyeshadow palette a few weeks ago from ulta when they were on sale buy one get on half off. I had low expectations for it. Well I was pleasantly surprised! Not only is it very colorful but it also has a lot of pigmentation and very little fallout! Which is not bad for a palette with so many shades options for under ten dollars! The only draw back is you need a good primer to make the shades last on your lid. Other than that I will be purchasing it again in different shades!

I love LOVE this palette. You get a large variety of eyeshadow colors and types (mattes and shimmers). These eyeshadows are also very buttery and pigmented. This is my go-to warm eyeshadow palette. I do understand that this palette is a little price-y for a drugstore brand, however it's well worth it. I highly recommend purchasing this palette if you want some neutrals and reddish tones!

If there was a 6th star, I would have wanted to mark this product a 7th. I cannot recommend this product highly enough. I have gone through multiples of this palette, having hit pan and almost all of them. I can create a variety of looks in s matter of minutes. The products blend fan-ominously. You need this product in your life. This palette is perfect for those who where eyeshadow on special occasions because it’s small enough to travel, the color scheme works well, and it’s super affordable.

I picked up this palette the other day at target with a $5 off coupon and it was soooo worth it!!  I think it's still worth it even if you pay full price $18.  The colors are perfect for fall and a warm neutral look.  They blend very easily, great for beginners!  They do have some kick back, but nothing too crazy.  The colors are nicely pigmented.  I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND picking this up.  I want to try the other palettes in this line now!

Honestly was not very impressed by this palette. The colors are chalky and not that pigmented at all. I was definitely hoping for a better colorful eyeshadow palette from NYX because it's one of my favorite brands but I would not recommend this. I will just be using this palette to make colorful liquid eyeliners with now. Spend the couple extra dollars and get the Morphe 35B palette!

This is a really good pallete . The shade which I have is warm neutrals. The shadows are really good pigmentation for drugstore make up brand. Here are some amazing eyeshadows in the photo you’re going to see the swatches of my favorites. It has mats and shimmer metallics, you can create natural every day look or an event look. I recommend it a lot

Is this palette pigmented/long lasting? Is it worth spending 17.99 or is a morphe palette better to purchase?
