After I became an IMBB addict, I had read Nupur’s review on NYX Matte Lip Cream and have been eyeing to own NYX goodies. Last month, my hubby had gone on a business visit to Florida and when he asked me what I wanted from there, my immediate reply was NYX. He is not good at picking women stuff and so I had to mention the colours I wanted.
I searched the NYX site and liked the lip gloss palettes, especially the perfect, everyday colours. The name was convincing and looked like its going to be perfect for everyday office wear, but only when I had the product in my hand, did I realize that these colours were not meant for me. 🙁
Now, coming to see what the product description is:

My Experience with NYX Luscious Lip Gloss Palette:
This palette comes in a transparent lid on top and a black base. It has a mirror and an applicator. The applicator is too small and is useless. The mirror section is all too narrow and I feel that is useless again and yes, I had to fidget a lot with the lid to open it, phew!!
Its sleek and does not occupy too much space in your handbag and can be carried around easily. As the name suggests, these shades are apt for everyday office wear. Five colours for 5 days of the week 😛 The gloss is not very glittery/shimmery and has no scent. Colour pigmentation is good and the texture is soft , moisturising and non-sticky. It stays for 1-2 hours only. The first 2 colours looks very similar to me. :-/
These are nudes and mauves and are not going to suit girls with dusky skin tones. I don’t want to throw as it doesn’t look good on me and it will make my hubby feel bad who got it with all love for me. Probably, I can use it while I’m at home when no one sees me other than my family members and that way finish this palette.
Pros of NYX Luscious Lip Gloss Palette:
- Soft texture, moisturising and non-sticky.
- Perfect for daily wear.
- Not tested on animals.
Cons of NYX Luscious Lip Gloss Palette:
- Utterly useless applicator.
- Staying power is less.
- Not easily available in India.
Will I Repurchase NYX Luscious Lip Gloss Palette?
Do I Recommend NYX Luscious Lip Gloss Palette?
Yes, for fair-skinned beauties.
I’ve learnt a lesson with this product, never to purchase anything by looking at the shades given online. Though a few times, it has clicked, but this time, I was unfortunate to get the wrong shade.
