Maybelline you got it right with the Blushed Nudes! (Review and Swatches)


Rose Gold makes for stunning jewellery and beautiful makeup. The Maybelline The Blushed Nudes® palette is soft and shimmery and totes feminine. Touted as the perfect Spring palette, I beg to differ. I believe that while some shades trend for a particular season, often based on fashion, weather, there are no rules. I love rocking an orange lippie in winter, true story. I also believe that make up should make you feel good and you should do you, boo . . .

The packaging on this palette is gorgeous, with a metallic rose gold finish on the cover. The name of the palette is written in the signature font of the other the Nudes palettes.

I am in love with every shade in this palette. I love the khaki green as well. That is a beautiful accent colour and I envision an emerald smoky eye, you can never go wrong with a bejewelled shade and a nude lip, really.

Like the other palettes in this franchise, The Blushed Nudes® eyeshadow palette features 12 shades eye makeup looks.

The colours are infused with rose gold pigments and range from beiges, sands to bronzes and taupes. This a beautiful palette that can be used to create a myriad of sexy, sultry, feminine and neutral everyday looks.

Like the Maybelline The Rock Nudes™ palette, there are instructions on how to co-ordinate the shades by breaking them up into quads, trios and duos.

Overall Thoughts

I love this palette. The shades, the quality . . . I love everything about it . . . except the brush.

This is a great eyeshadow palette to own.  Used over a MAC paint pot or NYX Jumbo eye pencil in a rosy, golden or similar shade to your lid colour, you will be dazzling your way through life!

This is a must-have . . . and yes my brown girls, we can rock pink and pastels, true story . . . so don’t box yourself in . . . and think that all you can wear is burgundy and gold!

Where to buy: Selected Clicks and Dischem stores and Maybelline counters across the country

Price: R250
