The NYX Ultimate Utopia Palette contains 40 shades of eyeshadows and pressed pigments in a wide range of colors and finishes. Each shade is 1 gram / 0.03 oz. It retails for $35 and can be purchased from NYX Cosmetics or Ulta.

I will note which ones are pressed pigments as I describe each shade below. Pressed pigments are not considered eye safe because they can cause staining and sometimes irritation. Regardless of this, many people still use them as eyeshadows, including myself. If I ever encounter shades that cause irritation I will always let you know.

This post is mainly just to show you swatches. It’s not a full review and I have yet to actually wear this on my eyes but so far I’m impressed with the variety of shades in here. Unique for a brand like NYX at a reasonable price point.
