Nyx In Your Element Wind Palette
Today I’m sharing swatches of the Nyx In Your Element Wind Palette. I bought this palette, as well as Air and Water, from Ulta when they were on sale at Ulta. Wind looks like my kind of colors with the cool tones of grey, blue, and violet. While I bought my palette from Ulta, I don’t currently see it available there. I can only find this palette at Nyx’s website.
Where to Buy
$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. I wish that the eyeshadow colors were named and that the names were underneath each shade on the inside of the palette. Instead, the shades are numbered on the back.
Now, I’m not gonna lie, in the past, I haven’t been that impressed with Nyx eyeshadows. I’ve found them to be lacking in terms of color payoff. They always frustrated me with the amount of time and energy I had to spend to pack on the color.
The Nyx In Your Element Wind Palette is heads and tails better than the other Nyx eyeshadows I’ve owned. 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. I like that you have a mix of metallics, mattes, shimmers and pearls in the palette.
I’m glad that I bought the Nyx In Your Element Wind Palette for 50% off, because I would have been disappointed to pay the full price of $30 for it. At $15 though, I think it’s reasonably priced.
I have to admit, I thought it was strange that Nyx has both Wind and Air as part of their Element line. The other Element palettes are Water, Earth, Metal and Fire. However, I’m pretty sure most people think of Wind and Air as being the same thing.
If you like cool tones, you will enjoy the Nyx In Your Element Wind Palette. If you’re not a fan of cool tones, you should skip this palette. If you prefer eyeshadow formulas that are easy to blend out but have to be built up, this is the palette for you. If you’re looking for one swipe pigmentation, this is not it.
