I have to go back to school in just 5 days! And I have done very little back to school shopping whatsoever because my open is house is literally 2 days before school starts and that’s when we get our school supply lists.
Luckily for me, my beauty fairy godmother has been watching over me diligently, and put a little extra money in my pocket so that I may secure (FINALLY) the Maybelline Blushed Nudes palette. Obviously the original Maybelline Nudes palette was meant to be a dupe for the Urban Decay Naked palettes which have gained a bit of a cult following! However, $54 is not an amount I’m willing to pay for eyeshadow, so I got this instead. For $10, you get 12 stunning colors, some shimmery,some matte. The palette works as quartets, trios, and duos all in one grand package.
My favorite color so far is #12, which is like a black powder with pink shimmer pressed into it! The colors are really great for blending, and give a softer look than the “nudes” of the 1st palette. I got the Blushed Nudes because I’m generally skeptical of products advertised as “nude” since they’re generally marketed towards people with a fairer skin tone than I. The Blushed palette have more pinky tones that will actually show up on my skin, and I appreciated that.
Maybelline always has been an amazing drugstore brand that I will come back to again and again, and I highly recommend this palette for all skin tones!
When I finally decide to get some back to school shopping done, I’ll be sure to update you all!
