Enter NYX to the rescue! I was prowling round the Internet late at night ( always a BAD idea ) and came across NYX's new release of the Nude on Nude Box, Isn't it beeeaaautiful? After trawling eBay with no luck I discovered it on Cherry culture website. I have never used cherryculture before, but I knew I'd seen pretty good reviews for the site, so off I went and ordered it, just missed out on a 20% off code too :(
Anyway they stock it at the RRP of $25 USD and shipping was approx $12 US, the shipping was a pretty standard time frame from the US to Australia, about 2.5 weeks I believe it took.
I fell in LOVE with the kit before I even managed to rip it out of it's box :) It comes packaged in a gorgeous chocolate coloured box with the picture on the front, and small images of each colour in the set on the bottom. Taking the palette out, it is about 15 cms long with square cut out windows showing the top row of shadows with the NYX logo and Nude on Nude written on the chocolate coloured box.
Flipping it open you have a mirror on the inside lid and 2 rows of 10 colours, all in variations of nudes, some typical nudes, some gold nudes and some grey/silver nudes. There is an excellent variety of matte colours and shimmers with something for just about any nude combo you could dream up.
The shadows themselves are very soft and have great colour payoff, they look awesome on top of a primer and last VERY well. I get about a 12 hr day out of them without creasing or smudging
SWATCHES :D -
|woops, picture is round the wrong way...|
And if that isn't enough, you can pop the bottom of the palette out and there is 10 lipsticks in there as well, now I know I had lipsticks in the Bronze Goddess palette, and these are exactly the same, sort of a soft lipstick as opposed to a lip gloss, they have far more colour to them than a standard eyeshadow palette lip gloss addition and are a bit more solid than a palette style gloss, they also show up beautifully on my lips, and the tones in the palette are well chosen to compliment a nude eye look.
Having said all that I totally love this palette, it's a big winner for me..... but I'm still dying to get my hands on that elusive little Urban Decay NAKED palette!
What do you think do I need the NAKED palette so I can do a colour comparison with the Nude on Nude box?
