Following on from my review of their Master Sculpt Contouring Palette I thought I’d bring you my thoughts on the Maybelline The Nudes Palette, which I bought at the same time. The Nudes Palette costs £9.99 & Superdrug had a promotional 2 for £10 offer on all Maybelline cosmetics, so I effectively got the Contour Palette for 1p! Get ready for lots of pics!
Firstly, I have to say just how impressed I am with the formula of these shadows! Particularly, though not exclusively, the shimmer shades They have the same smooth, buttery formula as Urban Decay’s shadows – which I LOVE!!!! They are also very pigmented & blend beautifully! The shade range is good, with 5 matte & 7 shimmer shades.
As well as the swatches, I wanted to create an eye look for you all. I’ve numbered the shades so you can see which I used.
1. On the brow bone & down into the crease to help blending (I’ve found this to be a really good tip)
2. On the lid, all the way up to the crease
3. 3/4 of the way into the crease
4. 1/2 of the way into the crease, outer ‘V’ & lower lash line
5. Upper lash line
6. Inner corner of the eye
I have to say, this has been the best drugstore palette I’ve ever used – no creasing or fading at all! I did use my Urban Decay Primer Potion, but I’ve had drugstore eyeshadows fade & crease even with this applied as a base!
I hope this post has been useful for you & that if you want to get your hands on it Superdrug still have their 2 for £10 offer on.
Do let me know what your favourite shades are from the Maybelline The Nudes palette are & if there are any drugstore eyeshadow palettes I NEED to get my hands on!
