The Nudes


I have finally got around to sharing this little beauty that I’ve been sitting on for a short time now. It is the new Maybelline The Nudes Palette. Maybelline launched this Palette in Fall 2014 but because New Zealand is so awesome it has only arrived on the stands now with a pretty “New” banner flaunted everywhere.




Being a beauty blogger you’d think my palette collection would be quite extensive, however, I can now add this with my lonely Naked 2 (seem to be drawn to the raunchy names, huh)- I’ve definitely added a few palettes to my wish list to help that collection along!

I was extremely excited about this Palette as golds and nudes are well up my alley (and even more excited for the Blushed Nudes which I’m not sure has hit the shelves in NZ yet).

The tones are well thought out and the pigments are amazing, you do not need much to cover your lid and make those eyes pop, applying these with a primer or wet brush makes them stand out much, much more and the colour payoff is incredible and so far the fallout hasn’t been too troublesome. I use this palette as a go-to for work as the colours are easily classic, but also perfect for a classy night out.

I brought this in NZ for only $32.00 (a little less than the price of one lonely MAC eyeshadow for comparison) so you really get a winner with these 12 shades. There is so much you can do with this palette and it is so handy for travelling as the colour combinations and look choices are endless. The size is perfect for your makeup bag and whether you’re feeling confident or not this palette is the one for you.



  • I’ve heard such good things about this palette, such a great range of shades to take you from day to night. It looks perfect for travelling.

      It is! It’s so compact and the colours are so highly pigmented it will also last you ages! It’s one of my favourites in my makeup stash!

  • I’ve such rave reviews of this – the colours are gorgeous! I hope you have fun playing around with it chick. I think it’s available in the UK too so I’ll have to try and add it to my collection 🙂 x
