NYX s119 Nude On Nude Palette with Swatches on Dark Skin
It cost me $22.50. Shipping was $4.
I selected the least expensive shipping option, First Class Mail. The package was labelled with a neon orange fragile handle with care sticker. Despite this,
my envelope was ripped because of the weight of the palette.
It was enclosed in a bubble wrapped padded mailer. The shipper should have reinforced the end of the envelope. This resulted in a two day delay in the shipping. The USPS re wrapped the package an included a letter of apology for delay. I contacted porkdaisy about it. They apologized & said they would notify the shipping department of what transpired. Fortunately NYX made the palette so sturdily, that it arrived safely.
On to the swatches!
The palette comes with a hidden drawer of 10 lip colors.
I found these to be quite sheer. They would be perfect over a lip pencil or a lipstick.
They remind me of a waxy lip balm. Only three of the colors really showed up on my skin.
Lip Product Row
Bottom Eyeshadow Row
Top Eyeshadow Row
The palette also comes with two tiny double-ended applicators.
One is a double-ended sponge tip applicator.
The other is a double-ended lip brush.
The casing is made of sturdy plastic. The palette contains a small mirror.
It is easy to open.
I think it would be very convenient for travel.
I agree with fellow YouTuber Traycee (KissSeventySeven)and think it would also make a nice gift for someone new to makeup or someone who loves neutrals.
The palette has a balanced number of matte, satin and shimmery eyeshadow shades.
I have not yet had the opportunity to experiment fully with all of the colors.
However, they are quite pigmented.
Some have asked whether or not this is a duplicate for the Urban Decay NAKED palette.
I would have to say, "No." There are a few colors that are similar, however none are exact duplicates.
Each palette stands on it's own merits. I have used them together to create neutral looks.
I am still playing with the NYX Nude On Nude palette.
With twenty eyeshadows, the combination of looks is endless.
I would give this palette four out of five stars.
I would definitely order from porkdaisy again.
Despite the delay in the delivery of my package, their prices are reasonable,
and Customer Service department was professional.
Do you own this? Is this something that looks appealing to you?
