I may have let on a little sneak peek of this picture in my 'Mysteries of Instagram' post on my blog last week because I couldn't contain the excitement of adding a new autumn palette to my collection. I know this was more of a Spring/Summer release but I only just snagged the NYX Ultimate Palette in Warm Neutrals and couldn't help but notice that it has all the golds, reds and browns to make it a great autumn palette( and just every season really!). I am a huge fan of this brand and have been one ever since I tried out their jumbo eye pencils in 2011. I'm so happy to see them come out with amazing, exciting products so that I can make my collection 40% NYX . So let's get into the review!
When this palette came in the mail, I was expecting it to be much bigger as you do with any standard 16 shade palette but I was pleasantly surprised at the size. It's quite small and compact and so much easier to hold for people like me who have smashed endless amounts of makeup by dropping them. The packaging is plastic with a transparent lid so that all the shades are visible. I think it looks way more sleek when compared to the cardboard packacing which I'm not a fan of at all. The shade selection is amaaaazzzing! It has such a good variety of browns and reds and golds. It's predominantly matte which I personally prefer and a few sparkly shades like the rose gold one in the second row is really nice.
