Maybelline The Blushed Nudes Palette

Maybelline-The-Blushed-Nudes-1

Hi guys! I’ve had the Maybelline The Blushed Nudes Palette for quite some time and I hadn’t got around to reviewing it yet. I wanted to use it more before reviewing and I never seemed to reach for it when doing my makeup so I kept putting it off. However, today I am ready to review it for you. I received this palette from Influenster for review purposes, however, as always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

The palette itself is a rosey neutral palette, quite similar to the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette. It contains twelve shadows, three of which are matte and the rest are shimmery.

For comparison, here is previous photos I’ve posted of the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette:

The two palettes are quite similar, however they are of course at very different price points so you can’t really expect them to be dupes. They most certainly are not. The shades in the palette are similar but that is where the comparison stops.

As you can see from my swatches, these shadows sheer out a lot. They are also a bit chalky in consistency. I thought they would be impossible to work with, but I found them relatively easy to work with. The darker shades definitely are easier to work with than the lighter shades. I always use a primer when applying eye makeup so it always wears consistently so I can’t really speak to wear time.

Here is a look that I did using the Maybelline The Blushed Nudes Palette:

Since the shadows don’t have names (why wouldn’t you name your shadows?!) I’ve done up this guide to show you which shades I used in this look:

So, while this isn’t my favourite palette in the world, I wouldn’t completely write it off. For the price (approx $14 CAD) it’s a decent palette. I found the best way to apply these shadows was to pack them on using a shader brush or a crease precision blender (Morphe E17). If you wanted a softer look, you could definitely blend them out and achieve that. While personally, I think I’ll stick to my Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette, if you’re looking to dabble into eye makeup, this might be a good place to start. It’s a good selection of shades, is inexpensive and since the shadows are a little more on the sheer-side you can really control the amount you are applying.

  1. Ah, this looks so meh! Do you have the CoverGirl Roses palette? I wonder how this Maybelline palette compares with that one…

      Yeah this palette isn’t that great that’s for sure! I don’t have the CoverGirl Roses palette but I feel like that might be the one Stashy raved about? Maybe I’m remembering wrong though!

      1. Yes yes, the CoverGirl ones are awesome! The Roses one is the one I raved about! 😀

          Yay! I got it right lol

  2. This palette looks like it’d be good for people who are just starting with makeup. It’s a great cheaper alternative to the Naked 3 for sure! I received the Maybelline Nudes palette from Rachael of Helpless Whilst Drying – still unopened, I need to get to it!

      Yeah I totally agree! Let me know what you think of the nudes one!!
