NYX Foil Play Pigment Palette Magnetic Pull Review, Swatches: Hey guys, today let’s talk about a brand new launch from our favourite drugstore brand – NYX Cosmetics. They already have their much talked about NYX Foil Play Cream Pigments (which hopefully I will get soon). Now they came up with a palette version.
This is not a cream pigment palette. This is their foil shadows in a palette form. Let us talk more details about the palette and see the swatches below.

In Detail NYX Foil Play Pigment Palette Magnetic Pull Review, Swatches and My Experience
The palette comes in a pretty basic packaging. A 6 pan palette with a see through lid. The shades look absolutely gorgeous when you look at it. I bought it as soon as it came online. International shipping does take some time but its okay when we expect great results from products.
The palette does not have an applicator or a mirror as you can see in the pictures. But considering NYX a quality drugstore brand, I am sure more of us wouldn’t mind that.
As I mentioned in the introduction, this is not a palette of NYX Foil play cream pigments. This is a pressed foil pigments palette. So yes, we don’t need a genius to figure out that the intensity of the pigment won’t be as remarkable a the cream pigments. Sometimes I don’t need a bam! pigment on my lids.
The texture of the shadows is very smooth and buttery. There is absolutely no grittiness or roughness when I swatch them. Pigmentation wise, these lag a little though. In one swipe, they offer a sheer foil pigmentation. However, you can totally build the pigmentation to your desired intensity. The sheen is this beautiful pearlised pigment, slightly metallic sheen; love it.
Let us talk about every shade below:
Because the shades have no names assigned to them, I am going to number them.
- A medium yellow-gold shade. Total stunner.
- Gorgeous foil baby pink shade.
- A light-medium green foil shade with remarkable silver reflections.
- Super foiled medium tan-peach.
- The second best shade in the palette after the golden one. A beautiful slate grey with even foil reflections.
- The only shade which lacks proper foiling. Its a deep lavender, however fails when compared to its fellows in this palette when it comes to reflectivity.
So if you’re someone looking for one swipe super intense foil shades, this palette is not for you. But if you want good quality foil shadows which are build-able, this palette is a good option.
Oh, and before I forget to mention, this palette has very minimal fall out. The fall out is only apparent when you’re building it up. If you swipe it a couple of times, there is no fall out.
Another tip, you can use a good eyeshadow primer, the shadows would definitely go more intense. You may also use a glitter base if you wish for more dramatic look.
Overall, I’d say this is a very workable palette at this cost. Its versatile and has good quality foil pigments. The shades are very wearable. None are too beyond the horizon.
As far as the shadow pigmentation is concerned, with the right ways you can always make them more intense or less depending on your need. They look good when sheer as well as give a stunning dramatic appearance when worn at full intensity with a good eyeshadow base.

PROs of NYX Foil Play Pigment Palette Magnetic Pull

- The texture is buttery smooth, not at all gritty.
- Very minimal fall out.
- Lasts for a good while when used over a nice base.
- Not super costly.
CONs of NYX Foil Play Pigment Palette Magnetic Pull
- Beauties who prefer really one swipe bam! pigmentation might not like this.
- You need to use a good base for it to stay put.
- Not easily available everywhere yet.
- If you’re new to foil shadows, this is a good one to start. You might have heard of numerous palettes who claim to have foil eyeshadows. However this is one palette which actually has what we call true foil eyeshadows.
- Use a good eye primer which are meant for shimmer or foil shadows.
- I find using my finger tips delivering better intensity as compared to a makeup brush.
