NYX Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powder in Lavender Steel, Snow Rose, and Twilight Tint : Swatches & Review

PURCHASED / AFFILIATE LINKS
 NYX Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powder in Lavender Steel, Snow Rose, and Twilight Tint. 
The NYX Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powder retail for $7.99US and $43CAN for 0.21oz / 6 g of product.

I ended up having to repress the Snow Rose, and Twilight Tint shades as the came in the mail broken but I did test them out before pressing them to make sure it didn't change the quality after pressing them. They fortunately behave the same after pressing them again as well with alcohol and 3 drops of glycerin. ;)

Ingredients: 
Talc, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Magnesium Stearate, Silica, Tin Oxide, Barium Sulfate (CI 77120), Ethylhexylglycerin, Tocopherol, Phenoxyethanol. May Contain: Mica, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Red 6 (CI 15850), Red 7 (CI 15850).
Product: 
The Formula is a fine mile mica aura pigment with a fine white base (but opal grey in the case of Lavender Steel), to make these shade more intense on bare skin and over other products. The pigmentation is intense with these shades and smooth to work with, with minor kick up in the pans.

Colour:
Lavender Steel is an opal-based mauve with an Aura finish.
Snow Rose is a white base warm pink with an Aura finish.
Twilight Tint is an icy blue with an Aura finish.

Wear: I get 6-8 hours on their own over bare skin.

Packaging: Simple black compact with a clear lid.

Daylight swatches: Lavender Steel, Snow Rose, and Twilight Tint, applied heavy and buffed out. 
Flash swatches: Lavender Steel, Snow Rose, and Twilight Tint, applied heavy and buffed out.
Compare:
Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Palette and NYX Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powder in Twilight Tint, Snow Rose, and Lavender Steel.
Daylight swatches: {ultra-violet} Amethyst, Lavender Steel, {pink} Opal, Snow Rose, {blue} Saphyre & Twilight Tint.
Flash swatches: {ultra-violet} Amethyst, Lavender Steel, {pink} Opal, Snow Rose, {blue} Saphyre & Twilight Tint.
{ultra-violet} Amethyst is much bluer-based than Lavender Steel.
{pink} Opal is also 100% dupe to Snow Rose.
{blue} Saphyre is a bit more aqua and more intense than Twilight Tint but the share the same refined shimmer size.

The Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Palette retail for $32US and $43CAN for 4 x 0.05 oz/ 1.53 g of product. These NYX Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powder are 0.21oz / 6 g of product per pan so your getting a lot more product from NYX over Alchemist Holographic Palette if you're looking for a dupe of a shade.
Verdict:
These are also really nice single aura powders and it so nice to see NYX as a drugstore brand come out with them! I feel like Snow Rose, and Twilight Tint work best with my skin tone, while Lavender Steel reads more like a blush than anything else but I'm not a fan of purple tone on my Pale Oliver skin for some reason.

The quality if definitely worth this splurge if you want to try unique face powders like these for both the cheeks and eyes.
