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!

You get what you pay. This product has really nice colors although it is a bit powdery and not well pigmented. (A very light layer of vaseline before application would help the colors to show up more!)

I honestly love this palette (not as much as nyx butt naked eyes palette) Yes, the shadows are chalky and you may get fallout, but if you use a good primer (I use e.l.f. Eyelid primer $1) you won't have any problems with the shadows. As for the lip product it comes with they are pretty pigmented and if you wear a lip liner underneath it will prevent it from fading quickly. I personally don't ever use the lip products that palettes come with unless its a actually gloss or lipstick, but if you enjoy using everything you get in a palette that would be my advice to you. I would also suggest bringing the palette with you if you are out for long hours, but since I am not I don't need touch ups. For the price you pay it's a very nice product.

I bought this product after reading a few reviews about it being an alternative to Urban Decay Naked Palette. Let me state that This is by no means close to the UD palette(which I finally had to buy).It's not even close.
The shadows are powdery and not pigmented at all. I am dark skinned and none of the shadows show up on my skin tone.
The lipglosses are another story. They are sooo sheer. Useful only as a lipgloss when you do not need colour.
Overall, this product to me, is a waste of money. It's bulky and I only reach for it when I feel I must get something out of the bucks i spent on it. Even then, I drop it right back cos it just won't work.

THIS ONE GETS A PASS......
I've had this palette for a little over a year. The packaging is a little bulky...it does come with a mirror.
The eye shadows are very disappointing. Most of the colors are chalky with quite a bit of fallout. The lasting power over a quality primer was about 3 hours before they started to fade. I had to layer this intensely to get a decent payoff. The colors are toned a bit more towards cool and there are really no standout colors in the palette.
I don't find myself reaching for this palette unless it's a very deliberate choice to see if there are colors I can't live without. I have better alternatives from NYX single shadows than what is in this palette.
The lipgloss is not even worth a mention, that's how terrible this stuff is....zero pigmentation and a funky smell to boot. Total waste of space in this palette.
This is by no means a viable alternative to UD Naked palettes.

My husband purchased this for me on Amazon as a cheaper alternative to Urban Decays Nude palette, and let me just start off by saying I was not thrilled with the product.
First of all, there are many shadows to choose from however, very cheaply made shadows. I went to apply and the matte shadows were decent, the shimmery ones are not very pigmented so they dont last long. Lots of fallout, not very pigmented, have to re-apply every 3 hours.
I have never had a problem with NYX products until this, waste of 24$!!!!!

This palette has a wide range of great colors but it is just average as far as shadows go. The colors aren't as pigmented as higher end shadows but it lasts a good 6 hours on me with primer. This is my everyday/at work palette since the colors are really neutral and understated. I save my good stuff for nights out and special occasions. I like this palette and would probably repurchase but you get a lot of product for the money so it'll be years before i have to make that decision. The lip colors are horrible and and waxy and most likely will not suit you if you are a woman of color but that's not why I bought the palette so that wasn't a big issue for me. Good palette if you're on a budget.
