Hello gorgeous ladies,
A pink lipstick makes most girls happy. Imagine what magic can a whole palette create with 6 gorgeous pink-y shades? Yes ladies! NYX has recently launched their NYX Pro Lip Cream Palette in “The Pinks.” Without any further ado, let’s jump straight to the review!
Pucker up—your lips are in for a treat! Our new Pro Lip Cream Palettes feature six expertly coordinated color combinations of intensely pigmented lip creams. Wear each shade alone or blend ’em all together for a totally customized look!
My Experience with NYX Pro Lip Cream Palette – The Pinks:
I absolutely love the concept of palettes as they offer more value for money and are travel friendly with many multi-purpose products in one! Whether it be eye shadows, contour powders, blushes or even lipstick, I prefer them in palettes. So, when NYX launched these breath-taking lip palettes, how could I not get these home?
Packaging: Does the packaging of the NYX lip palette remind you of anything? Yes, you’re right! It looks exactly like the MAC Pro Lip Palettes. NYX didn’t even care to change the name of their lip palettes, 😛 This lip palette is quite sturdy with a clear lid. Inside the palette, there are 6 pans where lip shades are placed that belong to the same color family – in this case, it’s pinks! It does not come with a mirror or lip brush which is quite a concern for me, considering that this is more suitable for travelling, but nonetheless, this palette looks super expensive and classy.
Color: There are 6 gorgeous shades in this lip palette all belonging to the pink family. The sad part is that there are no names for these shades. All they have are shade numbers. It’s quite a lovely shade selection of pinks in this NYX Lip Palette which will be suitable for all skin tones. I am pretty sure you can find a match for your skin tone and if you’re not happy with the shades given, you have a colour palette of 6 shades to mix and match to find your perfect shade.
Pigmentation: I have tried lip palettes in the past, but they all failed in terms of pigmentation. I feel the individual lipstick bullets work best, but this baby here proved me wrong! The pigmentation of these lipsticks is awesome. They are all much pigmented and the best thing is that they can be built up according to your preference, without feeling heavy or goopy. You can go for a sheer look by applying these shades with your fingers and also go for a fuller colour pay off by applying these with a lip brush.
Texture: I would say the texture of these lipsticks is just perfect. These are neither too creamy to slide off or feather away, nor too dry to go on patchy or flaky on the lips. The lipsticks in this NYX palette are creamy enough for staying on the lips and moisturizing to a certain extent. It gives a semi-glossy finish to the lips which looks gorgeous and gives an illusion of healthy lips.
Longevity: Another amazing feature of these lipsticks is that these are quite long lasting. In spite of its creamy glossy finish, it lasts on the lips for at least 5 to 6 hours with a little bit of snacks and beverages. It also leaves a tint behind which I really enjoy. So impressive!!
Quality: I am in love ladies! This lip palette has got me hooked on to it so badly that I can’t get over it. I believe after L’Oreal took over NYX, the quality and packaging of NYX products has considerably improved. Well, I can’t deny the fact that NYX’s prices are also more like L’Oreal now, but for the product quality and performance, I can neglect that.

Would I Recommend/Repurchase NYX Pro Lip Cream Palette – The Pinks?
Absolutely ladies! I haven’t tried the MAC Pro Lip Palettes yet and now I don’t even feel the need to try them out for a whooping $40 when I love these NYX Pro Cream Lip Palettes so much. I am anyway not a huge fan of MAC lipsticks. Please don’t kill me for this, but I have other lipstick formulations at I absolutely adore and this NYX palette is sure one of them. Do try it out ladies; it can be a perfect palette for the colour family that you like.
