Review & Swatchfest: NYX Nude on Nude Palette


NYX Nude on Nude Palette

NYX Nude on Nude Palette
The NYX Nude on Nude Palette might just be the largest  neutral palette I've come across with 20 shadows AND 10 lip glosses for just $25. The shadows are a mix of textures, with matte, satin, shimmer, and even some glitter, a blend of both warm and cool shadows, and a decent shade selection spanning from light to dark. Like many palettes with large shade selections, there are a few shadows that are less than stellar, with powdery finishes or sparse pigmentation, but then there are shadows that blow those out of the water. Additionally, there are also a few shades that are similar to each other within the palette.

Because there are so many, I won't go through and talk about the quality of individual shadows. Overall, they are much creamier than I expected! Most are smooth, evenly pigmented, opaque or easily built to opacity, and require minimal working (if any) to apply. As usual, there are a few exceptions I found in the light, matte range but, like I said before, it's not unusual to find this in large palettes.

My only small complaint with the shadows in this palette is the lack of super dark shadows. There are a lot in the light to mid range, but even the few grays, blacks, and deep chocolates sheer out relatively quickly when worn. Though definitely not a bad thing for someone who wants a palette for truly natural looks, those who expect 20 shadows to run the complete neutral gamut might find they come up short. This is easily remedied by layering it over a dark base!

The lip glosses aren't the main event in this palette, so I won't dwell too much on them. I think it's great that they are packaged separately from the shadows, so you don't have to worry about fallout ruining the glosses. There was some definite inconsistency in texture across the lip products. The shimmery glosses were much softer and applied more easily, while some of the cream finish were much harder to get out of the pan and build up on the lips. Overall, they aren't terribly sticky, and I was impressed with the payoff of some of the brightly colored shades. None of them lasted longer than 2 hors on the lips. Generally, prefer tube lipstick or glosses for ease of application and portability, so these don't add much value for me. But those that dont mind applying with a lip brush (a small one comes with the palette) and don't necessarily mind reapplying after a few hours might find this is a good addition to this palette.

For $25, I would say this palette is worth it for the shadows alone. While I did find some powderiness with a small few, they are very smooth, creamy, and pigmented for the most part, and provide a nice range of warm and cool shades. You can purchase NYX Nude on Nude from ULTA or the NYX website.

Look for a comparison to Urban Decay's Naked and Naked 2 Palette coming soon!
