Today’s post is really exciting because it’s on a product unlike any other currently in drugstores, at least that I’ve seen in the US and I am sure most would agree. That is the latest palette from Maybelline- THE NUDES palette. Cool name huh? I thought so, too. Even the packaging is really sleek and stands out against the usual cheap, small packaging of other eyeshadow products in drugstores. Just the overall presentation in a drugstore setting makes you want to have it because it’s the most glam thing there.
Now, I like pretty things just as much as the next girl but if it doesn’t do the job I need it to do- I’m tossing it or never getting it in the first place. Let’s see if THE NUDES really are just right or barely even there…
As you can see some eyeshadows are much more pigmented than others but keep in mind that this is meant to be a neutral/natural palette so the range of pigmentation is perfect for its purpose. If your looking for completely, full on power neutrals this isn’t for you unfortunately. But for people who don’t mind a bit of both worlds, this is a fabulous staple for any on the go gal.
The overall consistency is okay, but a bit chalky and inconsistent since some are also really nice and smooth- nothing you can’t work with though and isn’t that what beauty and makeup’s all about? The range of natural colors this palette includes is spot on with a black, brown, taupe and a few sparkling shades to add some sparkle and light.
