REVIEW: NYX Luscious Lip Gloss Palette - The Nudes


I usually don't like lip palettes because most are sheer and they come with dinky brushes with short handles, just like my MAC Intriguing Scarlet holiday palette from last year. When I first got this NYX palette, I was very skeptical because the surface of the glosses looked dry and hard. Man, was I wrong! Let's get on with the review...

THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE UGLY
PROS:
  • Nicely pigmented (make sure you load up your brush)
  • Creamy, moist, smooth texture
  • Not sticky
  • Glossy finish
  • Coverage is just about opaque if you apply enough product
  • Convenient, easy-to-open packaging with mirror and lip brush (it's better than no lip brush)
  • Inexpensive/affordable
  • Good range of colors
  • You get 5 different colors in one palette

CONS:
  • Lip brush bristles are frayed, not tapered, not stiff enough, not dense and too long. Make sure you use another brush that's stiffer for better application (the brush is basically the only bad & ugly thing)
  • Fruity scent may bother some, but I don't find it offensive
  • Not available in stores (you'll probably have to order it)

The Sephora brush is longer but the bristles are stiffer and of better quality than the NYX. See the little strays on the NYX brush?
PERFECT NUDES
The 1st & 2nd colors mixed together with a little of the 4th.


The 1st and 3rd colors mixed together. When you mix the browns with any brighter color, you'll get a perfect nude lippie. Love 'em!


The light pink first, then I added the dark pink.


The 2nd and 5th color mixed - my fave. I'm loving this palette more and more each day!


FINAL THOUGHTS
Despite the horrible lip brush, I love "The Nudes" lip gloss palette because it offers a nice range of colors in one palette - two nude browns, a berry color, a peach and a pink. It also comes with a convenient mirror and the glosses are well-pigmented, non-sticky and creamy. The best thing about it is that you get 5 colors for about $7. You gotta love that!

But I wonder how well-pigmented are the shimmery colors in the other palettes. Lemme know!

FINAL GRADE: A


Thank you for checking out this review! =)

Before seeing your review I would have never considered this... But now I am intrigued! Is the texture at all similar to the lipsticks or glosses? I think NYX Mega Shine glosses have a good texture. The round lipsticks are a bit thin and slippery, even though the color payoff is good...

Im a big fan of NYX products but Ive never tried this because usually, I don't use lip gloss palette. I hate to use another lip brush. But your review is so good. I think im going to get this.

Sofee said...

...:::BEAUTIFUL...BROWN...SKIN:::... Bianca said...

I gotta buy some now... I was skeptical as well. I gotta have 'em!!

Lady Lostris said...

Guitarrasara, I was skeptical about these, too! The texture is creamy and moist but the Mega Shines are more liquid in texture. I still prefer the tube glosses over the palette but for a palette, this is the first one I've ever really liked.

Angela, I don't like lip palettes either but I would definitely try another one of these. The brush super sucks, though. It's too flimsy and doesn't pick up enough product.

Thanks Sofee!!! =) I want to try another one myself.

Bianca, I hope you like it as much as I did. I was more excited about this than my MAC Holiday Warm Eyes palette. LoL. :)

Jasmin said...

Lisa, they're kind of in-between a gloss and a lipstick. Love 'em!
