Review: NYX Morocco Eyeshadow

Hello, lovelies! I wanted to post this makeup look which is somewhat of a recreation of Lau's Ergo Proxy look. I didn't recreate Lau's look exactly, mine is a bit more slanted and elongated, but I was so inspired when I saw her makeup look that I knew I had to try it someday. I also knew right away that I wanted to use the NYX Single Eyeshadow in Morocco for this look. So since we're already here, why not review Morocco too?

I won't go on and on about a single eyeshadow (although I could). In a nutshell, Morocco is a frosty/metallic violet blue. Morocco has a noticeable purple undertone especially when compared to a navy or cobalt blue. I'm tempted to call Morocco an indigo but I don't know much about colors. It doesn't have insanely intense pigmentation where you only tap the shadow and already get true-to-pan color payoff. However, it's still quite pigmented and only needs about 2-3 layers to reach its full potential. Morocco is also soft in texture and easy to blend. Amazing deal for a $5! NYX can be easily found on offer so you can probably get this at an even cheaper price. If you love blues then you need this.

  11. Absolutely gorgeous eye makeup, Morocco looks so beautiful- I love how rich and deep the blue is! Definitely want to pick up a shade similar to it but it's a shame that NYX is hard to get in Australia :(

  16. That's a really pretty look! I like the color, but I think that frosty blues look weird against my skintone. I only have a few NYX singles and I really want to start getting into them more, they seem to have soooo many colors.

  17. Gosh, this is stunning! I'm a sucker for shimmery purple/blue shades and this one is so unique. The perfect complement to that dramatic winged liner, which looks great on you! xo

  18. Whoo now this is a daring makeup look!! :D I love fun shadow colors like this but rarely buy them because I know I won't get much use out of them; NYX makes it pretty easy though since the shadows are cheap so you can experiment guilt free :)

  21. This eyeshadow is gorgeous, Coco! And the eye look you created with it is just as stunning :) This shadow sort of reminds me of MAC's Deep Truth eyeshadow, except without the purple. Deep truth is definitely more blue, but it has that same frost-like texture. I love blues and purples, especially because they make brown eyes stand out in such a beautiful way!

    1. I totally get what you mean. It has the same finish as Deep Truth except Morocco has purple in it. It's actually quite similar to a color by MAC called Banafsaji but that was limited edition. I might post a comparison/dupe post in the future :) xx

  27. Oh my gossssssh!

    You look SMOKING HAWT girrrl! Smokey eyes looks lovely against your skin tone. :)

    I have one Nyx eyeshadow which was a disappointment as it was quite chunky. This on the other hand looks FAB!

  32. I would have never thought to create an intense navy liner look all with eyeshadow, but I've been trying to change up my eye makeup more recently, and this is definitely a look I would try to recreate! I'll have to look into NYX eyeshadows some more, Morocco is a stunning shade! xx
