NYX The Suede Shadow Palette Swatches & Review

Hey everyone, I am very excited to be doing a post on the new NYX The Suede Shadow Palette. I came a crossed this bad boy when I went to Ulta a few days ago and was super excited to pick it up. I am such a sucker for any type of palettes so I was excited when this was released. It is also a limited edition palette.

This palette comes with 8 different eyeshadows. They are all considered pearl eyeshadows. To me I think the colors in this palette would be perfect for the fall time since there are a lot of darker shades and with the greens and maroon and golden colors, it just screams fall to me.

Starting from the top row we have a Nude Pearl, Beige Pearl, Gold Pearl, Light Bronze Pearl, Olive Pearl with gold shimmer, Bronze Pearl with gold shimmer, Forrest Green Pearl and lastly Copper Pearl with shimmer.

I love all of the colors that are in this palette. A few were hard to swatch because there wasn't much pigmentation in a few of these colors. But the gold, forrest green, and the bronze shade were all very pigmented. I had a few problems with the copper color because it was very streaky which was a bummer because I was super excited about that shade. 

I am also a huge fan of the packaging. I heard a few people say they didn't like it, but I liked it a lot. It is simple, sleek and will be very easy for traveling. I also love how big the shadows are in the palette so it is super easy to get at the product. 

  • The packaging is sleek and easy for travel
  • The shadows are big so its easy to get to 
  • The colors are beautiful and has decent pigmentation
  • Super affordable
  • The palette is limited edition
  • Some fall out with the shadows
Overall I would give this palette a B- rating. It is pretty decent for a drug store palette. You can purchase the palette here for $12.00 


  1. Great post! It does look like a pretty palette. But I just wish there were more matte shades. All shimmer isn't really my thing :)
