Maybelline ‘the nudes’ palette review

Since I’m really into drugstore makeup at the minute, I wanted to find an eyeshadow palette that had the same quality as my Naked 2 palette, which I wear almost every day, but at a cheaper price. Maybelline is probably one of if not my most favourite makeup brand at the drugstore and I’m always impressed by the quality of their products, so when I came across the Maybelline ‘the nudes’ palette I knew I had to try it.

The palette contains twelve different colours, some matte and some shimmery, similarly to the Naked palettes by Urban Decay. In fact I think I prefer this to my Naked 2 palette because the colours in this one tend to be more pigmented, which was what I was looking for. The palette also has some really light shades, almost white, that are great for highlighting the brow bone or inner corners of your eyes. It has a really pretty golden colour which I think might be one of my favourites. I was also surprised with some of the colours when I used them as I didn’t think they’d suit me or I’d like them but it turned out that I loved them.

I especially love how on the back of the packaging, it shows different ways to use the colours in the palette to create several makeup looks, explaining where on the eyelid to put each eye shadow. This is so handy if you’re just starting to use makeup, or even if you just find using eye shadows difficult.

I’m amazed at how many times I’ve reached for the Maybelline ‘the nudes’ palette over my Naked 2 palette, which I absolutely adore still.

Overall, I’m super impressed with this palette as I didn’t think the quality would be as high as it actually is. If you want to try out one of the Naked palettes but are on a budget, or even if you’re a beginner to makeup, I’d definitely recommend you pick up this palette. It has the same quality as a Naked palette but for a fraction of the price. It retails in Boots and Superdrug for £9.99.
