Maybelline The Nudes Palette

Maybelline The Nudes Palette

The new Maybelline The Nudes Palette is a collection of 12 eyeshadow colors in both matte & shimmery beiges, tans, creams & a black. Included is a double ended eyeshadow brush. Available almost everywhere for around $12, this palette is essential in every woman’s makeup collection!

On a side note:

If you think you’re tired of nude palettes (OMG, what’s wrong with you?! LOL), Maybelline also offers a companion palette called Maybelline The Smokes Palette for the same price & it is equally as stunning. 😉

Anywho! My biggest disappointment in the Coastal Scents Revealed 2 Palette was that the colors didn’t transfer well to my skin, even with a primer. The beautiful color in the palette seemed seriously muted when worn. That issue is totally not present in Maybelline’s The Nudes! One swipe & the color on my lids looks exactly like the color in the palette. I mean, that right there was enough to win me over, but there’s more!

I’ve found that wear time is amazing, even without a primer. 12+ hours & it looked just as amazing as when I first put it on! Adding a primer, I’d imagine these eyeshadows wouldn’t budge for days (useful if you got stranded on a desert island for the weekend, but still wanted to look amazing when you were rescued).

Plus, it’s easy to find! No waiting lists, no searching the internet, no 50 mile drive to the mall. No expensive shipping fees.

I’m frugal. I don’t buy $60 eyeshadow quads. I mean, I wish I could, but I can’t. So when I find a product like this I get excited! At ~$1.00 per color, this is totally affordable on any budget…plus it looks just as amazeballs as those snooty palettes that cost an arm & a leg! Win-win, baby! 😀

Overall, Maybelline’s The Nudes Palette gets two big thumbs up from me! If you don’t have it yet, you need to run to Walgreen’s ASAP; you won’t regret it!

July BIRCHBOX Preview

I’m late getting my BIRCHBOX this month, so here’s the preview:

BIRCHBOX sneak peek

Not really too excited about much other than the Coastal Scents Revealed 2 Palette Sample. I’ve already got the Whish Shave Cream in a full size, but I guess having an extra isn’t so bad.

Maybe they’ll mess up again & send me an awesome box by accident. Please? 😛

I was supposed to be able to choose an item, but never could. Same thing happened for August, too, so that’s kind of a bummer. I would have loved to get the August box with the Benefit Push-up Liner

Anyway, review when it gets here! I hope after trying the products I’ll actually like them.
