The Nudes by Maybelline is a 12 shade palette and was released before The Blushed Nudes which you may have read on my previous post but if not catch it here (Maybelline: The Blushed Nudes Edition). Just like its partner it comes in sleek packaging with an open window showcasing the shades.
Although I prefer the pink packaging of The Blushed Nudes, I do think that the black stands out for the classic nude shades housed inside. Although the majority of the shades are shimmery there are also a few mattes.
This palette allows you to create great smokey eyes as well as simply keeping your eyes natural if you want to go for bold lips. I love the pigmentation Maybelline offers without the use of eye primers, the colours are easy to blend and last quite well.
Although again it isn’t the greatest photo to go by I have tried to include some swatches so you can gather some idea as to how the shades look, but believe me they are a lot nicer in person!
The price of this palette retails at £9.99 but quite often enough you can find it on offer, especially in Asda! Seems random I know but they tend to have a variety of offers on their stands, currently you can get the Super Stay (Better Skin) foundation for £6 so it might be worth given them a browse.
Thanks for reading! 🙂
As you may have seen from a previous post I absolutely love Maybelline so when I saw their latest Nudes palette I simply had to get it. This palette is different to your everyday nudes collection you may have, its ‘blushed’ so comes in a great array of pinks and peaches rather than your normal brown/bronze shades.
One of the things I love about this product is its girly packaging, I love the metallic pink case its housed in, the other Nudes palette they have comes in your standard black packaging.
You get 12 gorgeous shades which are all shimmery, this is my favourite palette at the moment and costs only £9.99. I don’t use eye primers but have found that these eye shadows last brilliantly throughout the day and they also blend well together.
I don’t use the brush which is provided as I prefer to use a No7 eye brush I received in a free gift promotion they had at Christmas….
I’ve tried my best to swatch these for you, apologies if the quality isn’t the best I’ve never actually done it before and only have access to an Iphone camera. The first shade I did swatch is rather pale so you may not notice it.
As you can see there’s some lovely shades ranging from light to dark, I particularly love the peachy bronze shades and the pale pinks. I haven’t actually used all of the shades myself so I cant wait to see what different looks come out of them.
The palette is great for the daytime and with different shades to mix and match you cant really go wrong.
For me this set is definitely a stand out product and teamed with their Lash Sensational Mascara makes the perfect eye look.
Do you love the nudes look?
