NYX Cosmetics’ Antique Chrome

A nice enough shade, but not such a great eyeshadow. Payoff is on the less-than-fantastic side of the line, even discounting the fact that it applies much lighter than it appears in the pot. It isn't a boring shade, but it's a lighter shade - really won't work for contouring, accent, or even lining. I think I'd have been able to warm up to this shade a bit better if it were a bit deeper. As it is, it reminds me a bit of some of BE's greens: pretty, not utter dreck, but not incredibly useful for me, and something of a mild disappointment.
