Ben Nye Eye Shadow Ultra Violet


Approximately INR 400

My experience with the Ben Nye Eye Shadow Ultra Violet


The UltraViolet Refill Eye Shadow comes in a magnetic pan that is placed in a plastic casing. There’s not much to say as the packaging for refill eyeshadows are pretty much the same with all brands.


The texture is soft and smooth but not butter like. You don’t feel any powder but when you rub it between your fingers you can tell that there is some product.


Since the texture is soft, it does apply smoothly. There is no issue at all with the application.


Good quality doesn’t always have to come at a high price. The Ben Nye refill eyeshadows are very decently priced.

Staying Power

I’ve used it on my clients a number of times and they have been extremely happy. There has been no issue at all. Some of them have worn it for over 8 hours and no complaints of fade-age or creasing.


The pigmentation of the UltraViolet is quite good. And it is super buildable.


Ultra Violet, like the name, suggests is a shade of purple with hints of shimmer. It looks beautiful on the eyes and can be used to add just a pop of color too (like the picture attached).


The shade will work on medium to light skin tones. It might not show through too well on darker skin tones.

What do I like?
  1. Smooth Texture
  2. Easy Application
  3. Pretty shade
  4. Long Lasting
  5. Affordable
  6. Good pigmentation
  7. Buildable
What do I not like?
  1. Doesn’t show through on the dark skin… unless layered quite a bit.
Would I repurchase & recommend?

I definitely will repurchase. It’s a beautiful shade of purple. If you like experimenting and playing around with colors on your eyes, I’d totally recommend it.

Lakme’s Tanjore Rush palette has a shade like this.. It looks lovely on Indian skin but needs to be layered to show the true colour..
Great find???
