today I have a quick review about Maybelline New York’s The Nudes palette.
I recently bought the palette for around 10 euro, because I love brown eye shadows and because I wanted to see how well pigmented they are.
The package is super sleek and simple, which I love. I don’t use the applicator though, I always use eye shadow brushes from Shiseido.
In general I gotta say I don’t wear make-up on a regular basis anymore, so I only tried only a few looks within the past 3 weeks, but I am very happy with this palette.
It has a great concept, which arranged the 12 colors in particular order so that you can apply them as followed:
I always use a primer, which is what I recommend for using these shadows as well, but as you can see on the picture with the swatches, they mostly work well without an eye base as well.
At the top you see the colors with primer, on the bottom I applied without a primer.
The light tones are perfect for me since I have very pale skin. I also love that there is a mix of nudes, matte, shimmers and slight glitters. I can’t even pick a favorite because I really like the bronze tones, the dark browns and the light nudes. Only the black could be of a better quality if you ask me. I am not sure how it will turn out on the lid, but while swatching it seemed a bit chalky.
What do you say? Would you buy the palette? Could this be a good alternative to the NAKED palettes by Urban Decay? I couldn’t say, because I don’t own them^^
I would love to read you opinion. Please let me know in the comments below.
today I have a little different HAULy friday for you.
As you might know I am currently sick. My throat hurts, the nose ist running and I have headaches. DM is not only a great store for nail polishes, they also sell several health related things, so that’s what I bought.
nose cream with Camomile
tissues with Calendula
several drops for my hurting throat and some tea.
as well as hot lemon, acerola and ginger with honey. the one in the box is not from DM but from Japan.
While I was there I also saw the new Maybelline Colorshow Nail art pens. DM currently has a great offer. if you buy one Colorshow polish (1,95 euro) you get one of the nail pens (4,95 euro) for free!!!
I boguht 8 polishes and got 8 nail pens for less then 14 euro. In my DM they sell the Colorshow polishes for 1,75 euro. What a great deal!!
On the picture you only see four of the pens though I got eight, two of each color (white, silver, turquoise, gold/bronze)
