NYX: Single Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

Hi everyone!  Now, I know I showed you swatches of the Limited Edition True Blood Palette by Tarte a little while back, but not everyone is always interested in purchasing a whole palette of shadows.  For those of you that are interested in getting some single eyeshadows for everyday use, I just wanted to show you some swatches of the NYX single eyeshadows I had.  Although the shadows by NYX are inexpensive and affordable (can be purchased at both for $3.75 each or Ulta for $4.99), I would not categorize them as being bad quality.  I feel that the color payoff of NYX shadows are generally pretty good and the shadows apply smoothly.  NYX also has a crazy selection of shadow colors, so that it fits most people's shadow needs ^^.  With that being said, here are the shadows that I have and the swatches for them.  Enjoy!

*Wild Fire's texture was a little chalky feeling (not sure if it was the glitters in it or if it was just the shadow that I purchased)
*Dallas doesn't show up too well on camera since it blends in with my skin tone, but it is a matte muted pink color

Overall Review
- large color selection
-good color payoff
-smooth texture when applied (for most shadows)
-simple packaging
-inconsistency in some shadow textures

Favorite Shadow Colors
Herb. Eggplant. Flamingo

I'd love to hear from everyone!  Have you all tried any single eyeshadows from NYX and do you have any favorites?!  If you have swatches/pics of the shadow colors that you have on your blogs etc., let me know as well!  I'd love to take a look at them ^.^

Note: Products were purchased with my own money and the reviews are 100% my own.
