It seems that everyone brand has a nude or natural eyeshadow palette, but for a mass brand to put out a nude palette with 12 shades is a pretty huge deal. When I saw pictures of the Maybelline The Nudes Eyeshadow Palette popping up last month, I knew I had to find it. I was shocked to find it at my local CVS/pharmacy not long after and I snatched up all three that they had and I am so glad that I did. This is a great palette for the price.
For under $15.00 (I paid $13.49, but I've read that others are finding it for just $9.99), twelve eyeshadows in natural shades of this quality is amazing. The shades range from a satin vanilla to matte black and most of them pack a lot of pigment. I like the range of taupes and the two metallics are perfect.
To get the best wear and blendability of the shadows in the Maybelline The Nudes palette, you need to wear an eye primer with the shadows. I highly recommend either this one or this, my favorite eye primer. These will make application easier, help the shadows blend out more and ensure longer wear.
Look for the Maybelline The Nudes Eyeshadow Palette at your favorite drugstore or mass retailer for $9.99 - $14.99 now.
