NYX Nude on Nude Palette

Nude palettes are all the rage right now! So of course I wanted to partake in this nude frenzy but one of the reasons why I have not jumped onto the Urban Decay Naked palettes is because I found NYX Nude on Nude palette for half the price! $25.00!!
NYX Nude on Nude palette description stated on their site:

"NYX Nude on Nude set is a classy medleyof 20 neutral eye shadows and 10 vibrant lip colors that work for everyskin tone and every occasion. This makeup palette comes with a mirrorand 2 applicators for your lips and eyes, making it perfectly portable"

Swatches starting with top row tan highlight shade.

Swatches starting with second row white highlight shade.

The shade range in this palette is pretty good! There is a decent mix of shimmers and mattes, lights and darks in colors ranging from cool browns and taupe/grays to warm chocolate browns and golds. Although, I feel this palette does lean a little more on the cool side but, it will work great for all sorts of skin tones! None of the shadows have big chunks of glitter and most go on smooth.There are a few shades that blend in with my skin tone so in the above photos they could be hard to spot.

A pull out tray containing 10 lipcolors can be found just under the main area where the shadows sit. Honestly I am not a huge fan of using lipcolors in palette form. It gets to messy for me. I have tried a few on and the colors are very pretty but carrying this palette around for lipcolor touch ups would be a hassle. I wish they would have put a couple of travel size glosses in that tray  instead. Then they could have been easily transported in your makeup bag.

Because I do not own neither of the Naked palettes I cannot do a swatch comparison between the 3 palettes all I can say is that I find myself gravitating towards NYX Nude on Nude on a daily bases. I can have a subtle daytime look or a sultry smokey eye with the use of this palette alone! This is also why it was one of my favorite products of 2012!
