Nyx In Your Element Water Palette

Nyx In Your Element Water Palette Swatches on Pale Skin & Review. I have the Water, Wind and Air In Your Elements palettes. This one is my favorite!

Nyx In Your Element Water Palette

I wanted to share the Nyx In Your Element Water Palette swatches on pale skin with you today. I bought the Nyx In Your Element palettes in Water, Wind and Air. I always think of Wind and Air as the same thing, as a Gemini (air element). I’ve always been drawn to Water as my favorite element, more than air. I love the beach and listening to the waves crash. It’s only fitting that the Nyx In Your Element Water Palette is my favorite of the 3 Nyx In Your Element palettes that I own.

Where to Buy
Nyx Cosmetics

Price
$30 (though I paid less because I bought during an Ulta sale)

I like the sleek packaging. It’s hard plastic with a sizeable mirror. I love the colors on the front and the swirly design. The back of the palette has each shade labeled with a number. I would always prefer for colors to be named and to have their name below each shade in the palette. So it’s disappointing that these shades are merely numbered with no names listed below them on the inside.

The Nyx In Your Element Water palette eyeshadow quality is higher in quality than the typical Nyx eyeshadow singles I’ve tried. The Nyx In Your Element palettes have better pigmentation. I found these shades to be easy to apply and blend out. Yes, you do have to build them up more than I like in an eyeshadow formula, but they’re workable and less frustrating than my past experiences with Nyx singles. I love that you have a mix of metallics, mattes, shimmers and pearls in the palette. I think they’d be better with a bit more pigmentation, regardless.

While I wouldn’t pay $30 for the Nyx In Your Element palettes, the Nyx In Your Element Water palette is certainly worth its current $15 price tag! Shades like 6, 12, 4, 5, 8 and 10 really make this palette stand out. I particularly love how 6 (blue with gold shimmer), 8 (rosy brown with pink shimmer), 12 (deep brown with turquoise blue shift), and 4 (deep brown-black with navy blue shift) are such complex eyeshadows.

I hope that Nyx chooses to make more palettes with complex eyeshadows like the Nyx In Your Element Water palette. It’s definitely the best of the In Your Element palettes, and most other Nyx eyeshadow palettes that I’ve tried.

Which Nyx In Your Element palette is your favorite? You can see my swatches of Nyx In Your Element Wind and Nyx In Your Element Air.

  • I am LOVING this palette! I got this one and Air, and I was tempted by the Metals one, since I was too broke for the UD Heavy Metals palette and was hoping to fudge some looks. 🙂 I’m glad you like it, too; I feel vindicated! I don’t really care for the matching lippies, though, for some reason.

  • Love the shades in this palette but it’s $40 in Canada….no way I’m ever paying that for a drugstore palette when I can a high end palette at Sephora for the same price. Too bad, it really does look nice.
