Maybelline 'The Nudes' Eyeshadow Palette Review, Swatch, FOTD, EOTD

Maybelline 'The Nudes' Eyeshadow Palette Review, Swatch, FOTD, EOTD


Hi guys!

Remember how we Indian girls used to cry complaining that there is not enough budget option in Indian beauty market when it comes to neutral eye-shadows? All our prayers were answered when Maybelline launched their Nudes palette couple of months back. I got it immediately after it came to the market (click here to see my entire haul) and have been trying it out ever since!

What I think about it

Packaging:

Like usual eyeshadow palettes! Though sturdy and functional, nothing fancy! It comes with a dual tip sponge applicator which is useless. There is no mirror attached with the packaging which is not an issue for me, but might be a con for some.

Texture, Shades & Pigmentations:

There are total 12 shades arranged in 2 rows having 6 shades in each. As the name says, it is a gorgeous neutral palette with lovely hues of flesh toned nudes, shimmery browns, Shiny golds, matte grays and black.

Top row swatches !!

In the top row, there are total 4 matte shades (2nd, 3rd, 5th and 6th )and 2 shimmery shades (1st and 4th). Most of the matte shades are light ones and have poor pigmentation. In the hand swatch you can see they hardly show up. But the first color in the row (extreme left one) is decently pigmented (being shimmery) and can be a gorgeous shade for highlight. The fourth shade (from the left) is the most pigmented one in the row and a stunning golden brown shade (my favorite in the entire palette). The 6th  shade is very good for filling up eyebrows!

Bottom row swatches !!

In the bottom row, there are 2 matte shades (2nd and 6th) and 4 shimmery shades (1st, 3rd, 4th and 5th).  All 6 shades are more pigmented compared to the top row shadows and shimmery ones have better color pay off. The 6th shade looks like a matte black but it is bit less pigmented and comes out to be a grey shade instead of strong black (disappointment!). The 3rd shade is a shimmery golden shadow and my favorite in the row!

I like the shimmery shades more as they have buttery texture, glides smoothly, stay longer and delivers better color pay off! Matte shades lack pigmentation and powdery in texture!

I have used the 4th shade from the left in the top row all over my lids! It is my favorite shade in the lot and resembles a very famous MAC eyeshadow Bronze! I have also used a matte brown shade (2nd from the left in the bottom row)  to blend into the crease and  a darker chocolate brown shade (the 4th shade from the left in the bottom row) in the outer corner!

Final Words
This palette has become my everyday essential! I am a newbie with eye-shadows and it is always safe to start with nudes. After all, it is hard to go wrong with classic neutrals.

I totally recommend this palette! It is the best you can get for the price!

Where to Buy? Amazon and Flipkart (currently on discount!!)

Rating: 4.5/5 (wish the matte shades were little more pigmented)
