Nordstrom is a high-end department store in the US, so I was surprised when NYX made a post saying they were going to be stocked at one of my local ones! To be honest I was very hesitant and didn't believe it, so I went to their Juniors department and found a makeup display. One side was stila, the other side was Too Faced. On the sides of the main display is where you'll find NYX, Pop Beauty and Sula.
The associate at the store said they only just got this entire makeup display in very recently, so they don't have a lot. I could tell they were very new, because you could even tell that some of the testers haven't been used yet! It was nice to see a makeup display so pristine.
Unfortunately they don't have too much NYX yet, since they're testing how it sells at this store. Luckily they did have a brand new NYX product that's not even on their website yet: Cream Shadow.
There were only a few shades available, probably about 6 total. There were 4 neutrals, a blue color and a purple. I picked up 3 of the neutrals thinking they would be available online, but they aren't so I'm going to go back soon to pick up the rest! They're only $5 each!
The shade that doesn't have a sticker on the bottom is CRS05 (found on the bar code).
The cream shadows come with a wand applicator, similar to a lipgloss.
If you don't want to apply directly onto your lids with the wand applicator, I recommend swatching first on your hand and then use your fingers to apply it.
- Highly pigmented!
- Shades are really pretty. I love the shimmer of them!
- Great value at $5 each.
- Amazing staying power. I washed my hands and it stayed on, without primer!
- Takes awhile to dry (but can be a pro if you know how to use it effectively!)
- A bit difficult to apply with the wand.
- Not a lot of shades available.
- Not widely available. Only can get them at select Nordstrom stores.
