It’s been a month since the new Maybelline eye-shadow palette called ‘The Nudes Palette’ is in town and its been available in the stores since a week now! I finally managed to get my hands on it!!
About 2 months back I accidentally stumbled upon it while I was surfing the net and since then, have been counting days for its launch in India.
After a very long I have come across a really attractive, handy packaging for eye-shadow palettes. It’s sleek and compact enough, almost the size of my palm. It has a plastic body so you don’t really have to be extra careful handling it. It’s absolutely travel friendly and can slip in conveniently in your sling bag. It comes with a little sponge brush. Many of you might just toss it away… but, this can be helpful in smudging the shadow on the lash lines. While playing with eye-shadows, a blending brush is a must. I wish there was one in this palette too. It would have added on to its completeness.
I found all the shades from the nudes palette really smooth and appropriately pigmented. It easily glides on to the eyelids and there isn’t much problem of eye-shadow fall off. It doesn’t even crease and the application remains the same throughout the time.
It stayed for about 8 hours on my eye Lids (with primer). And approximately for about 5-6 hours without primer. I would recommend that you use an eyeshadow primer as it not only makes the shadow last longer but also make the colour stick to the lids better.
13 Looks in one palette
The best thing about most of the Maybelline eyeshadow palettes is that it comes with a little lookup guide at the back. So even if you are a new bee in the world of makeup and don’t know which color combinations to go for or which shade to apply where, the guide at the back will come to your rescue!!
The shades can be worn as duos, trios or quads depending upon the occasion and the kind of intensity you want. I am so thrilled and excited to try all the 13 looks that can be created with this 1 single palette.
Since its new and hot selling, its availability is a little limited. Its out of stock most of the times. You can find it in Lifestyle, Shoppers Stop, New U stores or even online at nykaa.com.
Rating 4.75/5 Highly Recommended
Why it couldn’t make 5/5?
The absence of a blending brush makes the pallet incomplete, for every application I have to reach out to my eyeshadow brush. Even while travelling I need to make sure I carry a separate eyeshadow brush, without which the application is not possible for me. Maybe they should have put a brush like the one un urban decay eyeshadow palette 2 & 3 which had a blending brush on one end and an application brush on the other.
