Affordable Smoky Eye: Featuring The Nudes Palette from Maybelline

I plan on getting plenty of use out of The Nudes Palette from Maybelline. A nude eyeshadow palette wouldn’t be complete without the colors to do a smoky eye. Here is a smoky eye look to try. I used the third quad in The Nudes Palette.

Mini Maybelline Haul from Rite Aid

I decided to take advantage of the 40% off Maybelline cosmetics this week. It also helped that I had three Maybelline coupons to use.

I already have my fair share of red lip colors. I saw the Burgundy Beauty Color Sensational® lipstick and decided to get it. This shade is perfect for Fall.

I am already a fan of Maybelline’s mascaras. They are my favorite drug store brand. I wanted to try out the Great Lash® Real Impact™ Mascara just to see how the formula is.

I was on the fence as to whether or not I was going to purchase the Nudes Palette. I already have nude eyeshadow palettes. Was having another palette going to be redundant? This palette being on sale and having a $2.00 off coupon helped in making my decision to purchase this palette.

The total price of this purchase after I used $5.50 in coupons was $9.17 (the price before the 7% sales tax was added).
