Review: NXY Waiting for Tonight Palette

Hey everyone! Today I am doing a review of the NXY "Waiting for Tonight Palette". This palette has been around for awhile, but I never had an opportunity to get my hands on it for a great price. 2 weeks ago that opportunity came. I received and email from saying that it was a promo on their site that week. I was able to get it for $20.00 USD. 

When the Palette first came out it was $35, its is now available from for $30. Needless to say, I purchased it quickly. I am going to go ahead and apologize for my photos. I took the pictures of the swatches at night and I had a hard time getting the lighting the way I wanted. However, I think they will do. :)
I did not think to take a picture of the whole palette. I wanted you to be able to see it open. Its a very big palette around 7 inches long by 4 inches wide and 2.65 oz.

This Palette comes with:
  • 32 Eye shadows- 13 are matte.
  • 3 Concealers
  • 4 Eyebrow colors 
  • 4 Lip shades
  • 2 Blushes
  • 1 Bronzer

The Eye shadows:
  • Are very soft.
  • They are all highly pigmented.
  • These go on smoothly and easily.
  • Very easy to blend.
  • Have a long wear time.
  • I already said it but I'll do it again. Yay for 13 matte shades. 

The Eyebrow colors:

  • Highly pigmented.
  • Can be used as additional matte shades.
  • easy to apply. 
  • Highly pigmented.
  • Go on smoothly.
  • Nice rosy colors.
  • Love this. The color is fantastic.
  • A little goes a long way.
  • Smooth, easy application. 
  • Creamy.
  • Provide medium coverage.
  • Not my favorite, but will do in a pinch.
Lip Glosses:
  • Are okay
  • Very basic gloss
  • Very sticky
  • Will do in a pinch
Applicator Brushes:
  • Nothing to write home about.
  • I gave them to my daughter to play with.
  • If you have your own use them.

My flash is crazy on this image. Sorry.

Blush and Bronzer:

Concealers and Lip Gloss: 


First I want to start off by saying I am in love with the colors in this palette. I feel like I can use every color and that makes me very happy. I bought this palette for the eye shadow, as I am a eye shadow junkie. All the rest was just a perk.

There are a few colors that did not show up well in my swatches. I think 3, they are all very light nude shades and blended in with the skin tone on my arm. They do show up on my lids. 

I like the blush and bronzer. I do not care for the lip gloss much. I mean it shows up okay, but I am not a sticky gloss kinda gal. The concealers are also okay, they are not junk but they do not give full coverage. 

This is a neutral to warm palette, so if you are cool toned there may not be a lot in here you can wear. Over all I am very pleased and I would buy this palette again. I did not have any problems with the eye shadow being overly powdery. I really think this is a great bargain.

I just remembered, I have this picture I took when it first arrived. So here is an example of it in the sunlight.
