The Maybelline Blushed Nudes Eyeshadow Palette* is relatively new to us Australian’s and it’s quite exciting because we rarely get pretty looking eyeshadow palettes in the drugstore. Today, I wanted to do a swatch and review post so you can decide whether this palette is for you.
The Maybelline Blushed Nudes Palette* comes with 12 shades. They majority of them have shimmer, whilst a couple are matte. All of the shades look stunning in the pan and most of them swatch lovely too.
However, there are three shades in the top row of this palette that are a little gritty and provide less colour pay off. They are the 2nd, 3rd and 4th colours. The colour I find the most difficult is the silvery, grey shade which as you can see barely shows up on my skin.
When it comes to the bottom row, I personally think that it is almost impossible to flaw. I love all of the colours and the shades are quite smooth. They are also pretty easy to blend. I especially like the first bronzey shade and second last, shimmery maroon shade.
Using this palette to do a complete look is achievable. I like to use the last shade on the top row all over the lid, the second shadow on the second row in my crease and the last shadow on the bottom row to darken up the look. The first shadow in the first row is used right at the end to define underneath my brow and I am all set to go.
Even though I think that some of the shades aren’t as pigmented as they should be, I still believe that this palette is pretty good. In Australia, this palette is priced at $25 and it’s pretty accessible. If you’re someone who loves to create cool toned makeup looks and wants to try a warmer palette, I think it’s worth a shot. 9/12 shades are beautiful, so I don’t really think that you could go wrong.
If you’ve been a reader of my blog for a while, you would’ve seen my review on the original Maybelline Nudes Eyeshadow Palette. You can read that review here. Comparing the two palettes, I think the Blushed Nudes palette is much nicer overall, has less fall out and the shades blend easier.
