As a regular ritual, I was browsing through MAYBELLINE new launches, as soon as the page loaded… there it was! right at the TOP! The Blushed Nudes Palette!
What?!?! I have been wanting to own this since I had purchased The Maybelline Nudes Palette , and while browsing through it’s reviews had a glimpse of this pretty pink little palette. Since then I have been checking out the stores but every time returned with disappointment!!
Finally it has arrived in India! “I got to have it right NOW” was all my mind was repeating!
What happened next?
I immediately called my dear partner in crime (my husband 😀) and he took me straight to the mall in the evening in search of it … But nowhere was it seen!

The good weather tempted me to skip work! While I was admiring the weather with a cup of coffee and still dreaming about the palette which shall be arriving soon ….maybe next week… My phone notified me in no time that it was already out for delivery and shall be reaching the very same day!
wait a minute… I was..but not very happy to learn this as it was to arrive at my office address! which meant another day without it!

The first thought that came to my mind as I woke up, was all about my reunion with my palette (YES! I am so guilty of being obsessed with makeup!!)
..and the story continues..
I rushed to office and found the NYKAA parcel shining on my desk which was unboxed in no time!
In my hand was the eye-shadow palette of my dreams! Well after a good quality (NOT quantity) time spent admiring those beautiful shades, and imagining how beautifully they can be wore… I quickly resumed to work! After all I have to stay committed to by B.Tech Degree!
My mommy-in-law called and I couldn’t help myself describing and illustrating my new possession…
My mommy called and the whole story was repeated again!
The day went by beautifully with the ‘The Blushed Nudes Palette’ safely kept in my bag right next to me…
And here I am to share my review with you all!
The Blushed Nudes Palette Review
It’s comes in an exact case as the Maybelline Nudes Pallete, which is 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. The brush that comes has an applicator at one end, somewhat a pencil brush at the other very useful for 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.
It also comes with a colour combination manual at the back, I didn’t find the combinations practically fit for application, I’d rather choose my own fusion.
All the shades from the palette really are smooth but I am not very happy with the pigmentation part, the colour needs to be built up, the best way I use to do this is by using MAC Fix+ on the brush prior application. 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.
Why it couldn’t make 5/5?
- I wish he brush provided would have had a proper blending brush to one side.
- Most of the shaded look similar on application
- The colour intensity needs to be built up.
