Maybelline The Nudes Eye Shadow Palette Review & Swatches

Maybelline's The Nudes Eyeshadow Palette is a great deal. I picked mine up from Walgreens, after reading Ashley's (my beauty blog buddy) blog posts here and here (Ashley Sue Makeup Blog). Love brown eye shadows? This palette reminds me of a box of assorted chocolates. There's dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and cream colors. There are taupes and a gold. There's also black (it's just not jet black). You get 12 shades in an assortment of mattes and shimmers. A double-ended sponge applicator is included and your eye shadows peek at you from the palette's clear window. Packaging is very sleek and fits comfortably in the palm of your hand. Both lighter and darker colors are buildable. These eye shadows look better ON than swatched (for some strange reason). Google this palette. They're like that dress you see on a hanger in a store and say hmmm. Then someone encourages you to try it on, and you say WOW it looks so much better on than hanging on the hanger. Same for this palette my friends.

This pallete has amazing shades and yes, those colors looks much better when you showed how they look on your hand than they're swatched.

I like the comparison to clothes, I get that! :) I guess makeup is even trickier as it can all depend on the way you apply it too. Someone like myself would never get the same result as someone as talented as you! :)

Hope you have a great weekend ahead Kim - and I'd love if you did a beauty inventory post, what a great idea! :)

This is one of my favorite drugstore palettes and it was cost friendly lol! I used this for my holiday makeup looks and it's a great palette to have. I want the Smokes Palette, but I can never find it in stores lol!

To be honest, I like nude colours and I think I am going to like this palette! Thanks for the tip! I am not a fan of Maybelline comsetics, but I believe this is good.


Lilli said...

I'm glad you like this Kim, and thanks for the little shout out hehe!!! This is a good palette, not the best out there but awesome for everyday wear!

I like how you compared the shades in this palette to a box of assorted chocolates Kim. It does look like a good neutral palette and I can see it being a great addition especially if you can get it sale haha. Happy weekend!

Cee said...

I've read a lot about this palette, but you're totally right, Kim, it lacks hanger appeal. I read so much about it that I went to buy it, but was disappointed with what I saw in the store and decided note to. The truth is, I don't need anymore eyeshadow but I think this could be great for travel, so I'm keeping it in mind.


I think I would get this strictly for the row #2 options, the colours are lovely, although they definitely could have done something wonderful with the packing presentation. Happy weekend. <3

Sara Gerard said...

Each pallet you post gets better, and better! I think that this one would be perfect for me! I am almost done with my grey one, my brown one is half used, and I have a purple one I just started. I think this one has ALL of the great neutral shades!

Shireen L. Platt said...

Oh you naughty, naughty girl, why are you tempting me with this? LOL!
I've seen Ashley post and had managed to refrain myself from buying it and now here you are waving the bloody palette in my face. Haha! Now I definitely MUST pick this up next month. Great review, Kim!

It looks good, but not as much as the chocolate bar!
