Maybelline The Nudes Pallete Review

Hello Everyone! 


I've been a fan of Maybelline eyeshadows for years, so naturally when their brand released the Nudes palette I had to have it! I originally wanted to do a series of all palettes released so far, but I can't find two of them (The Brights and The Smokes)! That's why it took me so long to get this post up. Everytime I check the stores they're sold at, no luck. I haven't completely given up my search for the other palettes, but at least my mom was able to find this palette soon after it was released last year.


- Small and convenient 
- Decent Pigmentation 
- Budget Friendly 
- Easy to blend
- Gorgeous matte and shimmer  

- A few shades fade quickly or lack  
- No Mirror
- Sponge application brush isn't all that good 

Overall Thoughts

Maybelline has done it again for me, I love this palette! The colors are pretty and easy to blend. I like how I can use either MAC's Paint Pot in Painterly or NYX White Eyeshadow Base and the colors show up well. I've only had issues with two of the lightest shades that were either lacking pigmentation or hard to work with. This is a good palette to have in a makeup collection and I like how I can throw it my makeup bag as well. This palette retails for $9.99 and my mom purchased this for me at Walmart.

Side Note: Whose watching Mad Men Series finale tomorrow night?? I can't believe it's almost over. I'm still shocked by last weeks episode! I'm curious of how the show will end its run!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

That's too bad you still can't find the smokes or the brights! I might have to keep an eye out for your at my stores! I don't see them much though lol! Have you got the new the bushed palette yet? It's pink toned and looks exactly like the naked 3

I just got this palette, and I'm really surprised by how much I really like it. I've heard mixed reviews on this, but I think it's really great too. I was finally able to get my hands on the Blushed Nudes palette a couple of days ago, and I think that is going to be a nice palette too. I'm really impressed with what Maybelline has done in putting these palettes together.

Thanks Ashley! That would be great, but haven't given up on finding these palettes lol! I know those palettes are still selling out quickly and it seems to take forever for stores to restock. I've seen them online, but some of the prices are ridiculous! I don't have the blushed palette, but I agree it does look exactly like Naked 3. I would to try it!

I heard mixed reviews too, but I really like this palette. The complaint I hear the most is lack of pigmentation. I find that using NYX Eyeshadow Base in white helps bring out the colors more than using my MAC Painterly. Maybelline is one of my favorite drugstore brands. I have so many of their eyeshadows quads!

Love the shades in this palettes. I haven't seen The Brights and The Smokes palettes in stores either. Nice review!

Pilar said...

Thanks! I wish stores would restock those palettes more often!

I own this one and I was impressed with it. I definitely agree with your assessment Pilar. For the price, you really get a lot. I think they're either coming out with a Blushes one or it's already out. You should see the colors in it. So beautiful. Haven't seen them swatched though.

Pilar said...

Thanks Kim! I agree you can't beat the price. Most of the Maybelline eyeshdows I have are good quality. I saw the Blushed palette around social media! The colors are so pretty! The searches are pretty too from what I've seen it reminds me of the Naked 3 palette.
