The NUDES Palette, one of several ‘nude’ inspired eyeshadow palette that Maybelline launched last year but this palette is brand new here in Malaysia. Since last month (May’15) they are available in Malaysian store.
This palette is already hyped as a budget nude palette, also so many people compare this palette with Urban Deay’s Naked 2 palette. I won’t disagree, there are similarities in shade but I can’t really compare as I don’t own UD Naked 2 palette.
Maybelline The NUDES Palette comes with 12 different warm-bronzy nude-ish shade, in total 9.6g of product. The palette packaging is just a basic plastic shadow palette, nothing too fancy, there is also a sponge tip applicator.
The shade variety here in this palette is quite satisfactory, there is cream to black and delicate champagne to deep taupe. I also love the fact that all these shadow comes with variety of texture; there is matte, there is satin and there is couple of metallic shade.
Some eye shadows here in Maybelline The NUDES Palette are really pigmented and opaque without even primer but there are few that are not pigmented enough. While swatching I had to swipe black and the dark brown (last shade of both row) shade quite a few times to get the color. Where I expected the most pigmentation from those two dark colors.
Lighter shadows of this palette doesn’t really shows up against my skin tone, couple of them cause fall out and appears chalky aswell.
Now, the satin and metallic shades here are awesome in quality. They apply smoothly and appear with full opacity and give no fallout either. A big thumbs up for those shiny shade.
However, if you use a primer underneath then it is not difficult to work with Maybelline The NUDES Palette.
Overall, I like the selection of shades and variety of texture in this palette. You can create lot of different ‘nude-ish’ look with those 12 shadows. It could be the perfect nude palette if those shadows were a bit better in quality.
In my opinion, this is a palette for beginners. Perhaps, a good gift for your little sister who just started with makeup!
