Among the new Love In collections that NYX Cosmetics has recently released are the 22 Love In Rio palettes for only $6 each.

These are currently available on NYX's and on ULTA's website and should be in ULTA stores now or within the next few weeks. Right now NYX is on Buy 1, Get 1 50% off at ULTA plus there's a $3.50 off $10 coupon which means you can get four of these babies for only $14.48 before any applicable tax.


I was sent two of the new Love In Rio palettes - Escape with Rico and Caipirinhas on the Beach. I have already used Escape with Rico twice. At this time I only own these two Love in Rio palettes so only Escape with Rico and Caipirinhas on the Beach swatches and pics are my own, the other images are from NYX Cosmetics.

My thoughts

I really like Escape with Rico and found all three colors to be flattering on my skin. I also like but haven't used on myself Caipirinhas on the Beach. The colors in both palettes I have are well pigmented, smooth and not chalky at all.

My only disappointment with the Loves in Rio palettes is that there are too many brown variations with a few very similar to each other with slight variations. The palettes that call to me are En Fuego and Life Is A Cha Cha. I actually wish that one of the brown palettes had a deep lush forest green but there is always the Love in Paris and Love in Florence palettes that do have lush deep forest greens.

Over all, I like these trio shadow palettes and plan on picking up a couple more at my local Ulta during the BOGO sale.
