When I first saw L'Oreal La Palette Lip on YouTube, I wanted to try one. The one I was drawn to was the Nude.

Thoughts: For some reason, I was drawn to these palettes especially the nude.
Here's how the palette looks open.
Here's a closer look at the lip palette.
Here's a closer look at one of the colors. This is the fourth one from the left.
The palette comes with a brush.
Here's a closer look at the brush.
Here's a swatch of the first four colors from the left on my hand
Here's the swatch of the last four from the left on my hand.

Now for how it looks on me from left to right...
Left:
It's the darkest cream from the palette.
Here's an overall look on me. I have Kiko Color Fever Eyeshadow Palette in Unexpected Rosy Taupe on the eyes. It'll be a great fall color.

Second from the left:
It's the darkest matte in the palette.
Here's an overall look with the same makeup as above.

Third from the left:
Here's another matte color.
Here's an overall look and I have Kiko Color Fever Eyeshadow Palette in Unexpected Rosy Taupe here as well.

Fourth from the left:
This is a cream with a slight sparkle. With that said, it doesn't have the sandy texture. It feels soft on the lips.
Here's an overall look and it's the same eye makeup as above.

Fifth from the left:
This is the most nudest cream in the palette.
Here's an overall look with the same makeup from above.

Sixth from the left:
This is a pinkish nude cream color.
Here's an overall look. I found this streaky on the lips.

Seventh from the left:
This is pinkish nude matte from the palette.
Here's an overall look. It's the most streakiest, patchy color from the whole palette.

Eight from the left:
They added one color as a highlight. I applied it alone so you guys can see it.
Here's an overall look. It just adds sparkle on the lips. I added it onto my bare lips.

Combination of lip color and highlight:
This is a combination of sixth from the left and the highlight (eight from the left) on the center of the lips.
Here's an overall look. I hope you can see the sparkle/highlight in the center of the lips.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there's no noticeable scent while applying the lip colors. I just sniffed the lip palette and there's no scent whatsoever. Secondly, I actually like the size of the lip palette. It's the size of my hand. It's small and sturdy. With that said, it's kind of cheap looking especially the plastic gold on top. It has a lot of scratches and it was even there before I purchased the palette. If you're looking for a lip palette with a mirror, this isn't it. It does come with a brush. I used the brush for the lip swatches and it's a great, sturdy, good quality brush. It feels soft on the lips. Honestly if you don't care about the scratches, this is a great travel-friendly lip palette. Third, it comes with two types of textures (cream and matte) and a variety of lip colors in the nude family. I noticed the lighter colors are more on the patchy side, whereas, the darker colors goes on smoothly. With that said, it goes on easily and does not tug on the lips. It's light-weight and not sticky at all. I also love that the colors are one shade without the sparkles. If you like sparkly colors, then you can add the highlight. I, personally, like it by itself. Fourth, the colors are great all year round. You cannot go wrong with nudes. It goes well with natural, as well as, smokey makeup. With that said, the colors are not that opaque. You do have to layer a lot to get the color density you want. I also noticed huge dents in the colors, as well as, hitting the pan after several application. I can finish the palette pretty quick which can be a positive or negative depending on how you see it. Lastly, it lasted until I ate/drank. I have a tendency to wipe my mouth after each meal. That doesn't help with the lip product lasting long. It also did not dry out my lips. I didn't feel any dryness, as well as, I didn't see any white residue in the center of the lips.

Pros:
* No scent whatsoever.
* Small, sturdy, travel-friendly palette.
* Comes with a great, soft, good quality lip brush.
* Comes in creamy and matte form.
* Variety of colors in the nude family.
* Darker colors go on smoothly.
* Easy to apply.
* Does not tug on the lips.
* Light-weight.
* Not sticky at all.
* Comes with a highlight color.
* Great all year round.
* Goes well with natural to smokey makeup.
* Lasted until I ate/drank.
* Did not dry out my lips.

Cons:
* Scratches on the plastic top.
* Does not come with a mirror.
* Lighter colors are more patchy.
* Not that opaque.
* Hit pan after several application.

Would repurchase: Maybe.
