NYX Trio Eye Shadow in Rock and Roll

Availability: ULTA, NYX Online
Price: $7.00

Company’s Description

Three’s definitely company when it comes to this trio of fashionably coordinated eye shadow shades in the NYX Trio Eye Shadow palette. Apply your statement shade on the eye lid, blend with the crease color and finish with the highlight. Includes a dual-ended sponge applicator and mirror for on-the-go touch-ups.

NYX offers 24 different shades of its eye shadow trios. This review is for the trio in Rock and Roll, which contains a cream-beige a medium, cool-toned brown, and a grey.


Packaging: 9/10

NYX’s Trio Eye Shadows come in a rectangular, plastic compact with a snap-shut lid. Half the lid is see-through; the other half has a mirror inside. The compact comes with a double-ended sponge applicator.

Quality: 9.75/10

NYX shadows are a mixed bag: some contain pigmented and buttery shadows while others contain shadows with stiff formulas that are weak in pigmentation. All 3 colors in this trio have great pigmentation and a buttery-smooth formula that you can layer effectively.

The creamy-beige color applies lighter on the skin than it looks in the pan–more like a cream color. The grey color appears darker on the skin–a deep grey with silver shimmers and a blue hue.

I like the combination of these 3 colors. You could easily make an eye shadow look without having to turn to another palette or shadow. You could use the first 2 colors for a neutral look and then accent the eyes with the deep grey for a nighttime look.

All the colors give a creamy, satin finish to the skin. The grey has the added element of extremely finely-milled shimmer particles. You don’t get any fall-out with these shadows.

Ease of Use: 10/10

This trio is wonderful to work with. Not only is it convenient to work with (since you can create an entire look with just this palette), but the shadows apply smoothly, blend nicely, and can be layered.

Price: 9.25/10

For $7.00 you get 3 shades for a total of2.1 grams of shadow. This is a good price for the amount of product you’re receiving.
