My Experience with “The Nudes” Palette from brand Maybelline-

As the name suggest “The Nudes” we can expect all the shades which are of that ranges covering almost all skin tone from cool to warm and neutrals. As we all know this palette was released long back and still available in stores maybe the choices of shades they made to create this palette . As I always wanted to try my hands on Smokey eyelook so this was a great palette for me as a beginner.

This palette comes in black color sleek style packaging with 12 shades given in the pan with a transparent lid and name mentioned on top which really looks good. Back side of palette mentions all the packaging and ingredients detail. They have also mentioned instruction and showed ways how the palette can be used which I felt is of great help atleast for a beginner like me or for those who are trying to create different looks. When I opened the palette. I was pleased to see few matte shades and few silky and shimmery shades for creating various eyelook. This palette also provides with 2 sided sponge applicator to apply eyeshadow on eyes but when I bought this palette the applicator was missing inspite of buying sealed one. Horrible! I wish they would have provided mirror on the opposite side of eyeshadows so that it becomes easy for touch-ups . Also it would have been of much help if they would have named the shades for easy reference.

The texture of eyeshadow is creamy, soft and blendable except 2-3 shades which are really hard to work on eyes i.e shade 5 and 6 specially for my skin tone. This palette provides variety of brown and beige shades with given gold, silver and black shades. I really loved golden color in palette as its nicely pigmented and wished they would have done same for black eyeshadow. Even I liked few satin shades in brown which give nice color and easily blendable. The Pigmentation and longevity are a big issue. There are 2 shades which are chalky i.e. shade 1 and 11 and difficult to blend plus there is a fallout when shimmery shades are applied on lid so would recommend doing your face makeup after your eyes.

Coming to the application side- I had to apply eyeshadow 4-5 times to get that color on my lids even after applying primer/ concealer which is a big job to do. Also, I have noticed that eyeshadow start fading away after 3 hour or so; so, be ready for touch-ups or set it with makeup setting spray. I hope they have seriously paid attention on the pigmentation side which is so disappointing. This palette can be used for daily wear as its very low pigmented and minival coverage of eye shadow wont show much in day time.

I have swatched all the shades of this palette from top to bottom and from left to right-

Overall, It’s a good palette for the beginners to play with the Smokey eye look by using different shades to create. Also compared to other palette its reasonable which provides 8 shades. Though Maybelline has came with other range of palette too, but I didn’t purchase as I was not satisfied with the current one.
