Me and a great nude palette have had a long love affair. I’m not a colour phobe by any means, but nude is classic. The perfect ‘no make-up, make-up’ if you like. And let me tell you , every gal needs a fabulous nude palette in her reserve. I’ll be perfectly honest, for the past couple of years, you could barely prise the Urban Decay Naked Palette out of my Kung Fu grip, but The Nudes Palette by Maybelline is a worthy dupe contender – for half the money.
Let’s discuss what’s to love about this bad boy… At just £9.99 The Nudes Palette by Maybelline is a great choice if you’re looking for an everyday eye-shadow palette, that won’t make your wallet weep. With a great range of colours to choose from, you can use the eye-shadows to create a natural or smoky look, as your mode dictates. Day time and night time looks are all covered here and they’re not ultra sparkly – unlike some other nude palettes in the beauty game.
The not so great? The pigment of the shadows aren’t as intense as other higher end brands, so it’s important to use an eye primer to keep your shadow on for as long as possible. This will also help to intensify the colours, keeping you looking like your hot-self all day long.
Overall this is a great budget buy that will take you from day to night with ease. It’s a hard working, versatile palette that will allow you to create a multitude of looks, while still hanging on to some of your pennies. Score.
