Neutral eyeshadows and I have an undying love for each other, well at least from my part anyways. Whenever I see a neutral palette I immediately want to buy it despite having 6 other palettes that look almost exactly the same sitting in my makeup drawer. Although against all my willpower, I decided to give in when I saw that NYX was on sale for 40% off on Cherry Culture and I picked up the Nude On Nude palette.
First let's talk about packaging. The NYX Nude on Nude Palette comes in sleek brown palette that has two tiers - one for eyeshadows and one for lip glosses. Although I do feel as though it is quite compact considering it's encompasses two different products, because it's two tiered it does feel very chunky. In addition to chunkiness, it also feels a little on the cheaper side as the palette is made from plastic. It certainly doesn't feel like a UD Naked 2 or 3 palette.
The Nude On Nude Palette has 20 neutral eyeshadows and 10 pink/red lip glosses. Frankly, I don't really care for the lip shades as I detest lip glosses, but I guess they're an added bonus. Some of the lip glosses are quite pigmented whilst others only have a little colour payoff. As they are lip glosses they do feel quite sticky when applied to the lips but they do provide a nice sheen.
Now I won't bore you with the necessary drabble and skip on move to the main part of the review - the eyeshadows. There is a great mixture of mattes, satin and metallic and due to the large selection of shades you can create endless amounts of look with the one palette. Unfortunately, the matte shades are slightly on the chalkier side of things, but that's to be expected as with most of brands, the shimmer eyeshadows on the other hand are buttery smooth. As you can see with the swatches below the shimmer shadows are much more vibrant than the mattes and you can also visibly see chalkiness of matte shadows.
I've also inserted a few of my other neutral palettes for a little comparison. As you can see they all look quite similar and encompass similar shades.
Overall, I think the Nude On Nude Palette is a great bargain for those who are looking for quality eyeshadows at an affordable price. However, in saying that I don't think this palette is worth purchasing if you already own other neutral palettes e.g Naked 1, Naked 2, Stila In The Light etc. This NYX palette retails for $25 and is often on sale on the Cherry Culture website - I purchased this palette for $15 due to the 40% off sale.
On a side note - I'm very surprised that I couldn't find many other reviews on this palette. If you've tested out this palette before please let me know what you think!
