This past weekend was a Shopper’s Drug Mart Spend Your Points event, so I headed over to pick up some stocking stuffers and a little something for myself. I decided on the new Maybelline The Nudes eye shadow palette as it was the perfect selection of neutrals and only $15!
I had some time to swatch and play with it on Sunday and was really pleased with the results. The palette contains 12 shades of neutrals from matte beiges to bold browns and blacks, and shimmery shades in between. The options seem endless for looks you can create and I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the shadows. They blended super well and went on highly pigmented without falling onto my cheeks, and they lasted all day.
I went for a pretty basic look – the matte nude closest matching my skin tone (third one from the left, top row) as my base, a touch darker for the crease (second from the right, top row), dark shimmery brown on the outer corner (third from the right, bottom row) and a touch of the lightest shade on the inner corner and brow bone (top right). I blended together and had my look! I also finished off with some liner and my new mink Velour Lashes for the complete look.
Have you checked out the palette yet? What do you think of it?
