Hi loves! Hope Monday has been good you guys :) Today's post is on Maybelline The Blushed Nudes Palette (9.6 g), which contains gorgeous pinkish nude shades <3
The palette comes in a metallic pink compact, which has a partly clear lid on it. I like I'm able to see what shadows I own. The palette contains a little brush and 12 eye shadows (11 is shimmery and 1 is matte).
You can mix and mach the shadows, which I have been doing most times when I have used this palette. The shadows can be used as duos, trios or as quads. I like that aspect of the design, its easy to go for the shadows they have put together.
The formula of the shadows feel buttery to the touch and these blend out easily, I would go say even too well (I don't like I need go in again and reapply). These are pigmented, which you can see for yourself down below. I feel the intensity of the shadows don't translate to the eye looks. I'm not sure if you guys know what I'm talking about, but the palette is missing bit of intensity for me when it comes using these shadows on lid. As you can see when these are swatched they do have intensity to them, but it disappears once I start blending everything together.
With these shadows I definitely need to wear primer underneath, otherwise these will crease on me. If I use a primer these last all day with out creasing.
Its nice to see eye shadow palettes in drugstore and this one is okay and I'm glad I picked it up to try. I can't really compare it with the high end palettes I own, because there is 2 different levels and this one doesn't come close close to the performance of my high end palettes.
Have you tried any of the Maybelline palettes?
Thanks for reading! xo's
