So blending is a nightmare, but what about application and wear? Frosted Ocean is definitely the kind of color that needs to be patted on, preferably over a sticky base. Sweeping this shadow on would only further dilute the color. Regardless of how you apply it, Frosted Ocean still causes a bit of fall out, mostly the pretty aqua glitters with a little bit of actual shadow, it's not awful though. I bet based on the tone of the rest of the review, you're expecting Frosted Ocean to get horrible marks in the wear department; but no, despite the trouble it gives during application one it's there it stays put. Frosted Ocean does fade a little bit, after about 6 hours, but it doesn't crease at all, and there is no additional fall out. Frosted Ocean actually tends to stain my lids, which is as bad as poor wear.
I'm very disappointed by NYX Eyeshadow Single in Frosted Ocean. It's just an over all poor shadow. It lacks in both pigmentation and blendability. I didn't know NYX was capable of making such a stubborn eyeshadow. It's a shame because the wear is decent and the color is really pretty. I mean a navy with aqua glitter, that's so fabulous. I expect a lot of NYX shadows, they're one of my favorites, but I guess each one can't be a winner. At least I can use the excuse that I bought it on accident. I definitely won't be repurchasing Frosted Ocean, and I don't recommend it. I'm sure NYX makes a better dark blue. I'll probably toss this shadow.
