This is a very easy, everyday eyeshadow palette for me. I love how effortless the colors are to wear, and how everything has something that easily matches. I know some will be disappointed how the color pay off isn't great, but for me it's nice because for a daily look I don't want anything heavy.I wish the shadows were a little less chalky though, that would be nice. It's a good idea to moisturize just a teeny bit before putting them on.
The lip drawer is fun, and I like swiping on the colors over my eos balm. I agree they look kind cheap and bad on their own, but if you try it over chapstick I think it looks so much better. It also makes the color lighter and I am a fan of that.
Blech. Returning this to HauteLook as it is truly horrible. The shimmery eyeshadows are SO cheap with overly-large multi-colored glitter, and the matte shades are chalky and awful-looking on my 43-year-old eyelids. There is not one lip color in the whole palette that I would ever wear - they all look cheap and tacky when applied. I have now officially learned my lesson when it comes to NYX palettes - I've had similar bad experiences in the past. Never again.
Like many of us, I was choosing between NYX Nude on Nude palette and Urban Decay's Naked 2, and finally went for NYX as it has more eyeshadow colors (I wasn't that interested in the lip colors nor expected much from it, and I was wrong about that!). Still cannot compare it to Urban Decay's palette (never tried it), but I must say I love NYX Nude on Nude.
I'm quite happy with eyeshadows and especially about the fact that almost half of them are matte (I absolutely prefer matte colors for a day-time make-up). Good staying power, too (I always use eyeshadow primer though).
Lip glosses was a bigger surprise. More creamy and moisturizing than I expected. I can tell I won't be using all of those 10 colors, but I already have my one or two favorites.
The packaging is cute and quite small for a palette of so many colors (huge plus). The two applicators (one for eyeshadows and one for lips) are not enough and I'm using my own ones, but that's often a case with other paletts too, I guess, so I'm not really complaining about that.
All the shadows were extremely chalky an not a lot of pigment. :(
I was contemplating on getting Urban Decay's Naked palette for the longest time and decided to walk into Sephora to purchase it. funnily, I was swayed to discount counter and saw this palette on sale. I was very surprised to see similar colours in it, with an extra bonus; a deck filled with 10 lip colours ! Score. I had to purchase it.
While this palette is very commonly compared to UD's Naked, it suffices with a range of neutral eye shadows which I can imagine to suit all kinds of skintones. The colours come in a range of very wearable shimmers to matte textures.
I've tried swatches of UD, which are extremely good quality eyeshadows I must say (highly pigmented, and has a buttery texture to it). Though I must admit NYX's quality is not comparable to UD's, however, it is good enough for everyday use. In fact, unless if peer closely or apply heavy makeup, I doubt there's discernible difference between the two (but i may be wrong, idk). Some of the shades can be a little powdery, and does not show very well on the eyes but they're good enough to be used alone or with other shades.
The lip colours turned out to be of good quality, all colours are creamy, pigmented, and is a great addition if you're looking to expand your lipstick collection
All in all, I reckon that NYX's palette is of good-enough quality and is excellent value for money. However, if you want a top-notch EXCELLENT quality eye shadow palette, then go for UD's one.
I really like this product as most of the shadows and lip glosses are very pigmented. I like using the eyeshadows mainly for highlighting my inner corners and browbones. However, I find that the matte shadows are a little less pigmented than I had hoped. I got this product for a great price at 49RM (14.64 USD) so I feel that it was very much worth its price. I would definitely repurchase when it is on sale.
This was a decent palette. The lip glosses were sheer but worked well on my lips. I had a hour of longevity from them and the shades worked on my skin tone. The shadows were a bit powdery and some of the shades were not pigmented enough, however with a base I was able to get good color payoff with half the shades so I am not too disappointed. I like the compact it is in and how you can see the shades from the outside. There are so many combinations to do and I think it would be a good gift for those starting off in makeup. Those who want more color payoff will not like this. I'm not sure if I would repurchase as I prefer the singular or trio shadows from this line.
I bought this palette after a debate with myself between this and UD's Naked. I'm glad I bought it, but Naked is still on my wish list. So far I haven't had too much trouble with any of the colors. They are all pigmented enough for me and blend very well. There is some fallout as others have stated, but it's not horrible. I find that tapping the brush on the side of the palette or giving a small breath on the brush head (like blowing out a candle) will get rid of most of the excess color that leaves fallout. This leads to wasted product though. But at half the price of Naked for twice as much shadow it can't be beat. I cannot compare it to Naked yet, but I have heard some say that it is a great dupe for the original. I'll update my review when I can compare the two properly. Great shadow colors.
I tried a few of the glosses when I first bought the palette but wasn't too impressed. I didn't buy this for the gloss though so I can't say I'm disappointed. Most glosses that come inside palettes aren't anything to write home about anyway. Haven't used them since that first week.
All in all, great value for the money. If you take a chance on it and like even 10 out of the 20 shadows, you've still got a bargain.
Been lemming for over a year thanks to blog reviews. I thought it would cover my need for beiges and greys as well as a portable travel palette -- all at half the price of UD Nakeds. Saw it in London Drugs (finally). Swatches on inside of my wrist were pigmented (didn't press very hard on pickup) so I bought it. At home, with UD primer, the shadows didn't show or were muddy or looked same. I tried layering UD primer and MAC Painterly to lighten my NC30 lids. Still same results. I also found them chalky. The lipgloss colors were pretty and varied from light to dark but on my lips, they were so uselessly sheer. Returned for refund. I suggest Nyx smaller palettes for pigmentation, portability and value for the money. I own both Nakeds and this Nyx palette is not a dupe nor cheaper alternative.
After reading numerous reviews about this palette, I had narrowed my choices down to UD Naked palette, Sephora Primal Instincts, Lorac Pro and this one. Since I had a 20% off coupon for Ulta, I decided to purchase both the Lorac Pro and NYX Nude on Nude. And I can honestly say that I do not regret it. I love my Lorac palette, of course. But I think I love my NYX one just as much! I love the variety of colors and even though some people gave the lip colors lackluster reviews, I really do like them. But back to the shadows. Although they are not as soft as UD or Lorac, I find that using primer (which I use no matter which brand of shadow I am using) gives it good staying power. The colors are really pretty and are a nice mixture of matte and shimmer. It isn't really a dupe of UD Naked, but it is an affordable neutral palette with great colors that make it more versatile than Naked. I will try to upload a look I did with the shadows in the palette and with me wearing the lip glosses that came with it! I love it! It's so nice to have for everyday wear. That way I can use my Lorac or other UD palettes for special occasions! Oh yes, one last thing. It would have been nice if the shadows were labeled with names!
