Hello gorgeous ladies,

NYX is one of my favourite drugstore makeup brands because of its high quality, amazing product range, and affordable price bracket. Also, after the L’Oreal takeover of NYX, there has been quite an upgrade of quality and numerous new launches as well. Today, I am going to share my thoughts about a new product from NYX – the NYX Pro Lip Cream Palette in The Reds. NYX has launched this lip palette in 4 gorgeous shades – The Nudes, The Pinks, The Plums and The Reds. This palette is probably my most favourite palette.

My Experience with NYX Pro Lip Cream Palette – The Reds:

Bright and bold lip colour is always my preference and I am more inclined towards the reds, oranges and coral kind of colours. Needless to say, this palette is my most-loved and most-used palette. Although some may find the shades to be a little bold for every day wear, I always find out ways and means to make this palette work for me.

Packaging: The packaging of the NYX lip palette 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 colour family, in this case – reds. 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 reddish-orange family. The sad part is that there are no names for these shades. All they have is shade numbers. There is quite a lovely shade selection of reds, corals and oranges 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 the best, but this palette here proved me wrong! The pigmentation of these lipsticks are 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 them 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-ish 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.

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.

    1. Aww Thanks a lot Rati 🙂 Though some of the shades might look a little similar on camera, but they are all different tones and shades of red!
