What the brand says: Pucker up your lips are in for a treat! The new Nyx Pro Lip Cream Palettes – 9gm feature six expertly coordinated colour combinations of intensely pigmented lip creams. Wear each shade alone or blend them all together for a totally customized look!
The lip palette comes in a sturdy black case with flip-open see-through lid. There are 6 shades in total, neatly arranged to fit in a compact sized case. It can easily be carried around in your handbag, but application on-the-go can be a bit messy if you don’t have a lip brush, as no applicator is provided.
The lipsticks are very creamy and glide on smoothly on the lips. I feel they set a bit patchy and in an uneven manner. I exfoliate my lips very well and even the driest matte lipsticks look flawless on my lips, I don’t know why these look patchy!
The 6 shades don’t really have a name; only the palette is named ‘The Pinks’. The shades vary from very light pink to corals and rose shades. Personally, I feel most of the shades look similar. You can mix up the shades and create your own customized lip color which might be an interesting idea if you feel the same about this palette as I do! Besides, only the magenta color (last row left) I feel is pigmented, rest all give sheer coverage.
The first shade looks very frosty on my skin tone. The coral and pink shades go well with any looks and the light rose pink shade (middle right) looks light brown on my lips. Since the shades are not as pigmented, you can use them everyday, even in your office.
How I use and staying power:
If you have a lip brush, application can be easy but if you don’t have one, using your fingertips is the only option you have which can be unhygienic. So make sure you wash your hands properly before application. The lip creams/lip sticks are very creamy (not glossy) and keep lips soft. The color payoff is not impressive so you can use it everyday. The lightest shade (the one that looks frosty on me) can be used to lighten any of your lipsticks so I am happy with that part. The lipsticks do transfer and do not last a single meal, especially the lighter ones. But, this palette can be a good choice for office going people since you get 6 different everyday shades for just INR 1500.
