When it comes to makeup. I think it’s fair to say that I have an obsession with it. And my biggest obsession might be nude eyeshadow palettes. I’ve lost count of how many palettes I have. But 99% of them contain neutral colours. What can I say? I’m a sucker for a nude palette. And one of the newest palettes in my collection is this – the Maybelline 24k Nudes Palette. Now although this is a nude palette. It does also contain a few out there colours. Colours that I’m hoping will push me out of my comfort zone a little when it comes to eye makeup.
Now you may have seen that I picked this up in latest Boots Haul and seeing as it was on offer in Boots, I really couldn’t say no. I have one other nude palette from Maybelline, but the combination of metals, mattes and shimmers sold this one to me. I have to say the pigmentation is pretty impressive for a drugstore palette. And what I love about this, is that on the back of the palette there are instructions highlighting which colours go well together. You can split the shades into quads, trios or duos. Which is so useful! Honestly I can be really lazy at times, so it’s nice knowing I don’t have to think too much about which colours will work best together.
There are 12 shades in this palette and each colour is infused with metallic gold pigments for extra shimmer. There’s a pretty bright sparkly gold all the way through to a shimmery nude and some brighter colours in between. Including a beautiful aubergine shade and midnight blue. This palette is perfect for taking you through from day to night. Not only is the pigmentation impressive but the formula is incredibly creamy and buttery to use on your lids, and they blend like a dream.
The Maybelline 24K Nudes Palette costs £9.99 and you can pick it up at Boots.
