Satisfied Craving? NYX Nude on Nude Palette

I have been craving the Urban Decay Naked and Naked 2 palettes for months. I have had many opportunities to purchase them but something always makes me change my mind because $50 seems like a lot to spend for a palette and if I buy one then I am going to want both. I may have found a more reasonable alternative for the time being until I am finally ready to splurge and actually buy the UD palettes.

ImageThis is the NYX Nude on Nude Palette. It is obviously meant to be a dupe for the Naked palettes. This palette is $24.99 at Ulta and I ordered mine on Amazon for $20.00. I used my credit card points to get $10.00 off my Amazon purchase so I only spent $10.00 on this amazing palette. ūüôā

The packaging is very sturdy and it seems like it would be great for travel. The colors are gorgeous and smooth. There are many matte shades and a few shimmer shades. They are very similar colors to those in the Naked palettes and overall I am very happy with this purchase. I’ve been wearing these to work for the past few days and they have great staying power when used with my Too Faced Shadow Insurance. I think this is a great dupe for the real thing. The lip glosses are an added bonus but they are not my favorite.

This palette has satisfied my craving for the Naked Palette for the time being. Maybe I’ll actually be able to wait until my birthday in September to buy the real thing…

NYX Lip Gloss

I was at Ulta last weekend and I decided I would give these glosses a try after seeing them on a few blogs and YouTube videos. I am fairly new to the NYX brand so I had fun picking these out. I ended up deciding on the Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Beige and the Butter Gloss in Strawberry Parfait.

Mega Shine Lip Gloss: Beige

The name of this color is deceiving. In my opinion it is not beige at all but a nice soft pink. I really like the way this gloss applied and the way it felt on my lips. It is very moisturizing and smooth. I also really like that it smells like cherries! I will most likely purchase more colors in the future.

Butter Gloss: Strawberry Parfait

I recently discovered that any lip product that has strawberry in its name or color description is probably the perfect product for me. I love this shade of pink because it complements my skin tone and it is fun to wear everyday. This gloss far exceeded my expectations. It is amazingly buttery and smooth on my lips and the color payoff is great! I especially like the scent of this gloss, it is buttery and sweet but not overwhelming. The color of this gloss reminds me of my favorite gloss that I wrote a post about not too long ago. You can check out my Chihuahua Bite post here to read about how much I love the Too Faced Glamour Glosses. The feel and look of this gloss is different than the Too Faced one but I think the colors are similar. I will definitely purchase more of these awesome NYX Butter Glosses ASAP!

Overall, I liked the Butter Gloss more than the Mega Shine. Both are great products but I liked the feel of the Butter Gloss more.

What do you think of these glosses? Any color recommendations?
