The £10 Eyeshadow Palette You NEED in Your Collection: The Maybelline Blushed Nudes Palette


With Christmas just around the corner, chances are last minute Christmas posts are populating your feed right about now so to give you a chance to read something other than that, I thought I'd talk about my latest purchase, an eyeshadow palette. I know what you're thinking, another nude palette?! I totally hear you. My make-up stash contains nothing but nude shadows but there is just something about them because I'm always drawn to a new one  despite having similar shades already (yes I have my eyes on the Gwen Stefani palette at the moment too). I resisted purchasing this for quite a few weeks but finally gave in when I swatched it and needless to say, I fell in love with the shades and thus decided it simply had to be mine. 

The Blushed Nudes Palette holds a combination of 12 shades ranging from rosy pinks to mauve-toned taupes and is quite clearly very similar to the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette, which happens to be my favourite palette of all time. You will agree with me that almost always the quality of the Nakeds is unbeatable, and with this palette the story isn't any different. However, even though the shadow quality doesn't live up to the Naked 3, amongst Maybelline's latest releases this palette wins it for me. 


While this contains only one matte shadow (first row 5th shade from left to right), the mix of shimmery shades more than make up for it. The shadows don't contain names so it wouldn't be easy for me to describe what each shade looks like, but what I can say is that nearly all of them are smooth and buttery, and despite having a little fall-out, they apply and blend well and are pigmented given the drugstore nature. The shades also work well when layered yielding a nice colour-payoff and as with any other shadow, their pigmentation and durability can be prolonged with a quality eyeshadow primer. I have worn these for around 8 hours and the colours were very much still vibrant at the end of the day thanks to the UD eye primer. The only problematic shadow for me would be the last one, a deep plum which looks much more shimmery on the pan than when worn on the lids; a drawback I am willing to overlook given the £10 price tag.

Top Row (L to R)

 Bottom Row (L to R)

Overall, I find this to be an incredibly affordable palette with a great mix of shadows not often seen in the drugstore world. They are ideal to add a bit of variety to everyday make-up looks as I don't want to be using my Naked 3 for work for example. This is a great alternative for that or if you are looking for a cheaper UD dupe. Additionally, it makes a great last minute Christmas stocking filler for the beauty lover in your life (or you!); available here for £9.99.

What do you think of these shades? Have anything similar in your collection already? 
Let me know below!
Thanks for reading beauties and Merry Christmas!

  1. You can never have too many nude eyeshadows and for the price, this is so worth it. I love a good nude, so I will have to try it myself

  2. Great review Pam! I saw this in a US drugstore haul and really wanted it a while back. But I just didn't know where to purchase it from at the time. I'm probably going to get it now, you've definitely made me want to buy it again.:D

  17. Hi, dear Pam! What for a hectic "bimester", now soon coming to an end, can't wait :) I loooved this palette and for such a great price! I wasn't very keen of nude palettes, but this one has that light pink eye shadow and it is such a huge plus for me! I hope you have a very beautiful Christmas time with your family, and I am very glad that we got to "know" each other this year!

  31. I'm really liking the bottom row of the palette. I've never worn maybelline, I usually use too faced. However, I want to add that I love your profile display picture on the right hand side of the page.

  43. Agreed, the Naked palette's quality is tough to beat. But for a drugstore brand, it looks like Maybelline did a great job! I've heard so much about this one too, thanks for sharing your opinion on it! :D

    The colours look so pretty! I feel like everyone is in love with nude palettes at the moment, I mean, is there even anything better than them? Have a good day lovely!
