First Impression: NYX Take Over Control Full Throttle Eyeshadow Palette

Hey Guys,

I hope you are all well  and enjoying this gorgeous sunny day today. I recently purchased  the NYX Full Throttle eyeshadow palette and am ready to share my thoughts….

I have the palette called Color Riot.  I simply bought this because I have been on the hunt for some orange/red eyeshadows for ages! It’s price point of £9 enticed me to click ‘Buy Now’ from

NYX describe this Quad as follows… Full-on color. Endless possibilities. Powered by four pigment-packed eyeshadows, our new Full Throttle Shadow Palettes allow you to create unlimited eye looks, every single time. With so many color combos to choose from, each stylish set is a treasure in itself. (Trust us—you’re going to want to collect them all.)

The shades are beautiful (Perfect for the spring/summer months), extremely pigmented and long lasting… I was surprised as before this I hadn’t found any drugstore eyeshadows that met my expectations (They were all sheer and powdery) But this product has definitely won my vote for the ‘Best Drugstore Eyeshadow’ category.

The packaging is standard – A simple black plastic case with a detailed pattern on the edge, along with a see through top where you can see the 4 shades. I was expecting a mirror on the inside along with an applicator, however given the price my expectations might have been slightly high.NYX1 WM

Here is a Makeup look using this palette…


Overall I LOVE this drugstore palette. Why?


  • I feel that this product is extremely value for money
  • The palette contains 4 beautiful shades and costs £9, this works out approximately £2.25 for each eyeshadow
  • The colour range is fantastic – you can create versatile looks from day to night
  • It’s user friendly
  • It’s travel friendly (I will defeinitely be taking this on holiday with me) 
  • The shadows are extremely pigmented and easy to work with and blend
