Hello Sunshines ^_^
How are you?
Autumn is officially here,so what a better timing to make a review of an eyeshadow palette,which people maybe going a little bit of crazy about it.The Nudes palette by Maybelline seems to have everything.The colors,make it a staple for everyone,younger or older,pretty easy to use,no matter if you are more classic or daring with your makeup,and all these in really affordable price,as a drugstore product.But let's see it a little bit closer...
I like the packaging,because it's not too big,not too small,perfect for travelling.It's black,sleek,lightweight,close really well and i like the simplicity of this palette.When it's closed,you can see all the colors,which is a plus for me because this way i tend to use it more.
The eyeshadows doesn't have a name so we will work with the picture above,with the numbers.As you can tell,even thought the palette it's with neutral colors there is a variety on it.All of them it's pretty pigmented (In the photos below i didn't use any primer underneath) and it's very easy to blend them.You can find lighter and darker colors and also,there is different textures and finishes,matte and shimmery ones.So this palette as you can tell has your back whenever you will need it.
In the first photo you can see the swatches of the eyeshadows in the first row.The lightest one,in the palette looks like a shimmery beige color but when i swatch it,at least in my skin tone,leaves those light gold shimmer,and not so much color.I still like it and it looks so good on the inner corner of your eyes.You have a matte beige (3),a shimmer brown (4),a brownish taupe color (6) perfect for blending color on the crease.Also i can't even describe to you what a velvety finish,the matte shades (3,5,6) have.
In the second photo,there is the eyeshadows in the second row.Here you can find more deep,darker colors,like this brown with green kind of undertones (8),a beautiful shimmery gold (9),a shimmery deep brown with purple undertones? (10) and last but least a matte black (12),which complete the palette perfectly.
I'm almost done with the review.But because i believe that sometimes little details can make the difference,Maybelline leave instructions in the back of the palette which show you how you can use it.So if you are a beginner or you are just too busy and on hurry,or for whatever reason you can't decide what look are you will be going to do,this thing will come on handy.
Also for the first time i think that you can actually use the brush that included on the palette,especially the pointy one,it's perfect if you want to smudge your eyeliner or if you want to apply eyeshadow close to your lashlines .
And here is two looks that i create with this palette,one everyday look and one other more dramatic,night out look...
Do you ever try this palette?Let me know what you think in the comments below ^_^
p.s Are you interested to see maybe a tutorial on the looks??Maybe a video??Let me know :)
Hope you like it
Keep Smile :)
