Maybelline New York The Nudes Palette | Review

Maybelline New York

Hello my beauties! Couple of weeks back I got my hands on this gorgeous Maybelline New York The Nudes Palette and today I am going to share my views on the same with you guys. 

I am a fan of nude, gold-y, copper, bronzy eyeshadows. This palette has a very good balance of all such colours.

My Experience with Maybelline New York The Nudes Palette

This is a great drugstore option if you are a beginner or if you want to try out just for the sake of trying. It has 12 shades, a good mix of mattes, satins and shimmery shades. I'll be honest with you guys, I had huge expectations from this one as Maybelline has rarely disappointed me. This one comes in a regular lid packaging with a sponge applicator. The shades have a mixed response on me, some are very good and some are not even average.

What I like about Maybelline New York The Nudes Palette

  1. It is a basic nude palette that you can't go wrong with it, specially if you do not own a palette with nude eyeshadows.
  2. It has the perfect balance of subtle and dramatic eyeshadows, a mix of shimmers, satins, and few mattes.
  3. It comes in a very compact and light weight plastic case with a see through lid.
  4. It is travelling friendly.
  5. All these hues will look flattering on anybody as these are quite the classic shades with no over the top experimental shades; has a range of normal everyday neutrals to bold smokey shades.
  6. It is quite an affordable palette.
  7. It has a how-to guide at the back of the palette for beginners.
  8. It comes with a slightly longer sponge tip applicator.
  9. Pigmentation is good for some and bad for some, some colours showed on my skin nicely and some didn't at all.
  10. Longevity with primer underneath is good, about 5-6 hours.

What I don't like about Maybelline New York The Nudes Palette

  1. As I said not all very pigmented; #12 was not the darkest black that I'd like, few more were there that didn't show up much and I had to apply multiple times, meh.
  2. The texture of #1 is very dry/chalky on me.
  3. I'd have liked if this palette came with a mirror.
  4. These are not very blendable, again it's a mix. Some blend nicely and some just sit there and do not blend.
  5. These don't stay as long without a primer underneath.

It is a good palette if you do not own a neutral palette.

Price: Varies between $10-15.  Available at: Amazon, Nykaa
