So awhile ago I was looking into a neutral eyeshadow palette, but the one I had my eye on, no pun intended, was running for over $50! Um no thank you. I just couldn't imagine spending that much on an eyeshadow palette that, let's be honest, I would realistically use only three to four colors. Or you buy the singles that clutter your already overfilled makeup bag, and who wants that? Not me. So while I was making my weekly mommy trip to Target, I spotted this beauty from the corner of my eye (again no pun intended)! At first I thought.. great let's see how much this price markup is gonna be! And to my surprise it was only $9!!! So, I thought what the hey, let's give it a try! Well I did, and let me say it is by far more than a win in my book! Introducing The Nudes eyeshadow palette by Maybelline.
This 12 color eyeshadow palette is a real stunner and for multiple reasons. Not only do you get a variety of colors all in beautiful neutral tones, but you get an eyeshadow palette that you will ACTUALLY use. I literally have used every color, not all at once of course, but I can honestly say they all look gorgeous when applied no matter what eye color you have. Another reason why I love this palette is how lightweight and compact it is. It's great because it won't bulk up and weigh down your already overfilled makeup bag.
So a little about the actual shadows. When applied wet, the gold shimmer color looks fantastic when brushed over your lid! I like to use the deep browns in the crease of my eye for a more dramatic look. The light shimmer is used for under my brow, and the black is great as a substitute for your eyeliner. I even love the taupe dark brown as a filler for brows!
Overall, this palette has gone above and beyond my expectations, and I believe it will be your new favorite as well. Have you tried this or any similar products you would like to share? Let me know in the comments section.
