Let get this week started!
So about a week ago…lol… I posted a 1st impression/demo video on the new(er) Maybelline Blushed Nudes Palette – CLICK HERE https://youtu.be/_8K2ANQaRpg. This is the fraternal twin to their original The Nudes palette. I was/am not a big fan of the original Nude palette – I will link video here https://youtu.be/4xUiI_gpIV8 but I am still on the fence about this palette, I like it but I do not love it. With that said let’s get into the swatches! I used my Too Faced Original Primer for the arm swatches. Pardon the background, hehehehe 😉
Pros – Beautiful shades, cool tones, shades 7-12 are highly pigmented, not too much fall out, descent wear time
Cons – There is only 1 matte shade, shades 1- 6 do not have great pigmentation, if you do not like shimmer/frosted/satin eyeshadow you will not be a fan of this palette 😦
My favorite shades in the palette are 4,5,6, 9, & 12 – they are beautiful on the eyelid and I did notice that 4-6 applied better with my fingertip than a brush but you have to apply a lot of product to get the full effect.
Overall I like this palette better than the original Nudes just because the pigmentation is slightly better than the 1st one. I still have to dig into the shadow itself to get any color from the top row but the bottom row is gorgeous if you like grey, pink, sliver, or purple tones. 🙂
I hope you enjoyed the swatches! Let me know if you have tried this product I would love to hear your thoughts.
