A Closer Look: Maybelline The Nudes Eyeshadow Palette

Maybelline Nudes Palette

Maybelline released the Nudes Palette this past Summer. I didn’t immediately jump at the opportunity to purchase this palette. I already have nude eyeshadow palettes: Naked, Naked2, Naked Basics, Nude’tude. I bought this palette when it was 40% off at Rite Aid. I also used a $2.00 off coupon.

The Nudes Palette comes with twelve eyeshadows. I think it’s clever how the eyeshadows in this palette are grouped together. When you look at the palette there are three quads, four trios, and six duos. Thirteen looks can easily be created just by how the eyeshadows are grouped together. The Maybelline website does explain how to create thirteen different looks. This is great for beginners. Those of us who are more experienced the possibilities are endless.

The Nudes Palette has a nice balance of matte and shimmer eyeshadows. Two of the colors came across really sheer on me when I swatched them. My skin tone is darker though. I can’t wait to play with this palette. 🙂
