Now that I finally got my hands on Maybelline The Blushed Nudes Palette (thanks to my wonderful mama) I can share my thoughts about the palette. I think it's kind of funny that everyone else was able to find these palettes except me! If it's a beauty product out there I can usually find it! Now on the review!
Swatches with Flash
Swatches without Flash
- Small and convenient
- Decent Pigmentation (for the darker shades and a
few of the light shades)
- Budget Friendly
- Easy to blend
- Gorgeous shimmer and matte shades
- 2 sponge application brushes in this palette that
- Minor Fallout
- Lacks Pigmentation (for some of the light shades)
- No Mirror
This palette also has a small amount of fallout and the colors are so easy to blend. That is a major plus because I hate eyeshadow palettes that have a lot of fallout. I really have a love for this palette, but the pigmentation could be better quality. The darker shades show up well. Some of the lighter shades show up, but just like the other three Maybelline palettes I reviewed, you should use a really good eyeshadow primer. So far the only eyeshadow primers I find that works well with these palettes are the NYX Eyeshadow Base in White, and the NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil in Milk. Using white eyeshadow bases helps bring these colors out well. The color fading isn't too much of an issue for me, it's primarily the some of light shades that can have some fading after about three hours. I really love the colors in this palette and they're so shimmery with the exception for a few matte shades which I also like. I definitely can see the resemblance between this palette and the Naked 3 palette, some of the colors are similar. I think Maybelline did an excellent job with color selection for The Blushed Nudes Palette and even if you don't like this palette, it only runs about $10.00. This palette has a few cons, but overall I was really pleased with this palette. I didn't get a chance to write the details for my makeup look using this palette for this post, but I will have that up for my next post!
Now that I have all four palettes, you can check out my other reviews in the links below
