Ulta’s 2017 Birthday Gift: NYX Happy Birthday Palette (Swatches included)

Happy birthday to you! I’m sure your birthday is sometime soon so you’re wondering what Ulta’s quarterly gift is. This quarter, Ulta and NYX unleashed a palette for us to enjoy.


This palette reminds me of Lorac’s Mountain/Desert Sunset Eye Shadow Palette in terms of color. However, the quality of the NYX birthday palette is subpar. I found it to be a little shoddy. Some colors have great pigmentation while others are just…meh. Also, you should note that the top right greenish shade is actually silver.


Of course, this is a free eyeshadow palette so I wasn’t expecting anything spectacular. If your birthday falls into this quarter, I definitely recommend picking this up because (1) it’s free and (2) there are at least 4 shades that are really great. I hope these pictures will help you figure out which types of looks you can create! Happy birthday!
