I was really excited to get my hands on Maybelline's The Rock Nudes Palette! I found this at my local Walmart for $9.98. If you follow my blog, you probably have noticed that I'm a major fan of these palettes, so I just felt it was appropriate to add this to the collection to make it complete lol. I know some of you wanted me to review this palette, so let's get the review started!

I can say that Maybelline came up with a really good theme for this palette with The Rock Nudes. The navy and black shades really give this palette life with it's edginess. This palette truly has all the shades to bring out your inner Rockstar. Since this palette does have a lot of darker shades, I think that Maybelline should have released this palette during the Fall when most makeup lovers like to wear darker eye makeup. As a makeup lover myself, I'll wear dark eyeshadow anytime of year though!
Out of all the Maybelline Nude Palette Collection this one has the best sponge application brush. I typically don't use the application brush in thee palettes, but this one works pretty well. I also like how it's easy to blend the shades in the palette, and fallout is minor.
The major complaint I have with this palette is the lack of pigmentation with the some of lighter glittery shades. As for the darker shades, the pigmentation is alright. It's a shame because those glittery shades were some of the shades that drew me to wanting this palette. Even with using m NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil in white and the NYX Eyeshadow Base in White, the glittery shades still didn't really show up all that well. I tried using a wet brush and that helped the shades show up more including the glitter shades. I have to be completely honest here, this palette isn't a must have.
I'm glad that I have this palette in my collection,
but I wish the performance was better. I'm going to continue use this palette and I love the colors, but the pigmentation isn't all that great.
