NYX Perfect Filter Palette: Rustic Antique Review

It’s amazing how many fall themed eye shadow palettes are available in the market right now. From high end to drug store, every brand has their own version and each and every one of them drool worthy. As soon as I see a warm toned palette, I swoon. If I created a wishlist, it would be never ending!!

I decided to write a review on the Nyx Perfect Filter palette in shade Rustic Antique. There are five different shades palette available in their website so you can definitely check them out. However, I really wanted to try out the Rustic Antique because…well, just LOOK at it! It’s gorgeous!

 Review & Swatches:

Well it was definitely love at first sight so I was eager to test out the formula. When I first swatched it, it felt incredibly soft, velvety and I thought it was very creamy! Usually matte formula tends to be dry but this was very creamy. I went to Nyx’s website to make sure it was matte and not a cream formula. The swatches and colour payoff was simply incredible and the shimmer ones looked so beautiful.

While using a brush, the mattes ones created a lot of kick up but they blended smoothly. The colour payoff using the brush was not as pigmented; rather it was soft and controlled. I really liked that! I have seen reviews where people had problems with the palette in that respect but I found it worked perfectly for me. You see it helped me blend better, add more pigment if required instead going full blast in one go. I’d recommend using the shimmer shade with a flat brush or just your fingers for best results. The shimmer shades felt like creamy pot shadows, velvety & soft and because of that they settled on the lids beautifully. I’d like to stress on using eye primer before using this palette to get the best possible results.

I had been looking up swatch comparisons with the Anastasia Modern Renaissance palette and there were tons of shades that matched so you can say that the warm, rusty shades are dupes.

$20 does seem a little steep for a NYX palette, especially when you can get the Anastasia Modern Renaissance palette which has more colours and is currently the best eye shadow palette in the market. But it’s a great second choice if you don’t wish to spend $42 on an eye shadow palette.

I shall end the review here and hope you found it useful! Do let me know if you have used this palette yet and which is your absolute favourite Fall palette at the moment!
