I’m a sucker for nude and neutral eye shadow palettes. In fact, I think I have about 6 or 7 of them in my makeup train case, yet I only use 4. One of them includes Maybelline’s The Nudes Palette, which comes in a sleek black packaging that caught my eye right away. I first saw it during the Maybelline x Greta’s Junkyard Dream Academy Workshop, and it was love at first sight.
The palette comes in 12 beautiful shades with a mix of mattes and metallics. My favorite shade would have to be the matte brown shade in the upper right corner (top, right-most). Another shade I really like is the light brown one (also matte) on the lower row, second to the left. It even comes with a guide on which colors to mix and match to create a certain look.
I’m not really a fan of the sponge brush that comes with the palette (it’s hard to use for blending), so I always use my own makeup brushes.
In terms of pigmentation, they’re not as pigmented as I hoped for it to be—but the good thing about it is that if you’re a beginner, it makes it easier to build up the color and blend. Still, I think the shades are all gorgeous and for Php 675, it’s a palette worth having. I’ve used it a few times already, and so far, the staying power is good plus it doesn’t crease.
Here are swatches of the different shades. They’re all so pretty, I swear!
What do you guys think? For those looking for a nude eye shadow palette that won’t hurt their wallet, I definitely recommend Maybelline’s The Nudes.
