Hello!! A month or so ago I heard that Maybelline was coming out with a new Palette called 'The Nudes'. I knew right away I wanted this palette for a few reasons. #1. I'm a sucker for neutral palettes, #2. I've never tried any Maybelline eyeshadows before, but always wanted to because they are quite raved about for a drugstore eye shadow, and #3. I haven't really seen Maybelline come out with a palette other than the quads and trios they have. So naturally I was really curious and drawn to this palette.
I actually found mine at a local target, which was weird to me because the target by my house rarely gets newer makeup in right away. I have also heard this can be found at Walgreens if you are interested.
This palette has a range of 12 beautiful colors, both matte and shimmer (5 matte, 7 shimmer). This has both cool and warm tones, and the browns are more on the taupe side which I absolutely love.
Here are all the swatches. The first 6 being the top row, and the last 6 are the bottom. These are swatched with no primer underneath.
-First I want to say that the color pay off for these is much better on the eyes than they are swatched. When I swatched them they seemed kind of chalky and not as pigmented as I hoped. So my first initial reaction was a little disappointed, but when I put them on my eyes I totally changed my mind.
-Since I never tired any maybelline shadows before, and since they are really talked about in the beauty community, I kind of had high expectations for this palettes. I don't think my expectations were totally met, but I wasn't totally disappointed either.
-I think this is a really great palette for the drugstore. The pigmentation isn't the greatest, but it isn't bad. It's certainly not a Naked or Lorac Pro Palette, but I'm still really enjoying it! It's definitely one of the better drugstore palettes that I have tried!
-The shadows look really pretty on the eyes and I'm super happy with the looks that I have been doing. I especially love all of the matte brown colors. The are so great for transition and blending shades. I have been using this a ton since I bought it.
This is a palette that I think is worth checking out if you can find it! I will be doing a look with this palette in a drugstore FOTD post very soon!
