Enhance your eyes with NYX's Nude Matte Shadow! Formulated to give you a clean matte finish and the silky matte texture makes it easy to apply and blend smoothly.
I'm just here to make people aware of the fact that lots of shops i.e Douglas sell NYX for an extremely overpriced price. Last summer I was in Hong Kong and it was just terrible. Therefore I would like to advise everyone to take a minute and look at the official American NYX website before purchasing any of their products in a store. Xoxo
Huh. From the online description--deep cool grey-brown--I was really wanting this. But I couldn't find it in any stores, and really didn't want to do a whole order from NYX (trying to control my collecting, ugh!) just for this. So when I saw it was available through Amazon (from which I was already ordering), I went for it.Well...unless they changed something, the color isn't really what they described. Not that it's bad, just that it's VERY similar to another NYX shadow, Own the Night (which I already had). They are both very dark muted purpley browns. Haywire is just a tiny bit darker. A little disappointed...this is why I hate buying without trying!
This is the PERFECT shadow for the outer V. I've been looking for a color like this for a while. I like that it pairs nicely with so many different other shadows. My favorite combination so far is loreal amber rush on the lid, haywire in the outer V and any midtone brown to blend out the crease. As with all powder eyeshadow, this is definitely better over a primer or base.
I haven't used this not on my eyes (although I think it would be gorgeous) but I use it as... Drumroll... A contour shade. I don't like using bronzers as contour shades. Shadows are not brown. They are gray. I saw this swatch on a beauty bloggers website comparing tons on bronzing options. Wonderful taupe gray. I actually achieve MY perfect contour color by mixing this NYX Haywire shadow with NYX Taupe Blush. The taupe blush gives it just a hint warmer and more flesh like. Also the blush's texture is more blend able than this shadow. My skin tone is light with neutral to slightly yellow tone.
