NYX Cosmetics’ Machinist: Steam palette

Almost a year ago, I snagged two of NYX’s Machinist palettes for half price. Since then they’ve been on sale, but until now (August 2019), never for half price. (Folks who still want the Steam palette, jump now! It’s the only one still available, and it’s half price!) There are four mattes, five shimmers, and three metallic shades. This entire palette is cooler and neutral tones, so if you have strong warm undertones, I’d skip this one.

The full Steam palette, showing the opened palette with all of the twelve eyeshadows. First row of colors: vivid medium blue, medium-deep plum, metallic white gold, and blackened brown. Second row of colors: dusty white matte, medium-light coral pink, metallic light cameo rose, and medium-deep brown matte. Third row of colors: green-grey, medium-deep tan, maroon with gold, and medium brown.

I think that my surprise favorite shade is the silver-looking one, third row first column. For me it swatches green-grey, with subtle pink highlights.
