NYX Luscious Lipgloss Palette in 03 "The Perfect Everyday Colors" [Review + Swatches]



What attracted me first to the NYX Luscious Lipgloss Palette was the 5 in 1 deal for $8.00 only. Let's find out if it was worth it! 



NYX Claims:

NYX Luscious Lip Palette is NYX's signature lipgloss palette comes in 8 varieties of luscious lip color. Each NYX Luscious Lipgloss Palette offers a combination of 5 shades of long-lasting and moisturizing gloss to protect and add the perfect color to lips.


Packaging:
A black plastic palette with a transparent lid that sports a thin mirror inside. A blush applicator's been included.






Review and Swatches:
Frankly speaking this palette sat amidst my makeup stash for a good 4-5 months before I finally picked it up one day. The reason being that I was disappointed with the color payoff initially when I applied them when it reached me, instead I fell in love with the NYX Megashine lipgloss[ review coming up soon] I had bought and pretty much used that all the time. 
But ever since I've started paying attention to this palette, I figured it wasn't that bad, actually it was more the opposite and gave me a huge variety to mix and match. 
Coming to the palette, the lipglosses are creamy and smooth textured. Fairly pigmented with a glossy finish, there's no shimmer in them and not too shiny either. The color ranges from a dark pink to nude-y pinks to a corally nude; true to it's name these are the "Perfectly Everyday" colors. The swatches look amazing I know but why they appear almost the same; kind of pale pink on me is beyond me. I had done some lip swatches but they all looked the same to me except for the dark pink one and the right most, so I gave up the idea of posting them. If you apply a little concealor on your lips first to mask out the natural pigmentation of yours lips and then apply these colors they might show up differently true to their colors.
They kind of plump up my lips and make them look x2 bigger! I don't know if that's happened to everybody whose used these or just me. I tried using them over lipsticks to get that glossy finish and the result was quite good.
The applicator brush is absolutely rubbish literally, it's hard and the only purpose it would serve if you dip it in the glosses would be to spoil them! A regular lip brush may serve the purpose better, I used my fingers mainly because I lack the patience to use a lip brush. You need quite a bit of product to build the color but if you take into account that there are 5 colors [albeit similar ones] in all, it's not a bad bargain after all. Though I wish I had bought the Nudes palette instead of this all pinks palette.

  14. I like the usable colours in this palette and you're right, its so great for mix and matching shades and even creating a whole new colour that suited to you. I prefer glosses that don't have a shimmer in them. Good review...hope you're having a relaxing weekend sweety!
