I recently bought this nice palette from Maybelline at Kruidvat. I was looking for a palette with nude colors, which was payable as I first wanted to try how the colors would suit me. This palette is perfect for that, it is small, simple, has 12 different colors, both matte and shimmers, and only costs €15,99. Today, I will be reviewing it for you.
This palette is part of the fixed range of Maybelline, and they aim that you can make 13 (!) different looks with it. On the back there has been made a drawing where the different colors are divided into different styles, using two, three, or four colors. As well it comes with a small eye shadow applicator, just in case you did not owned any. Everything together makes the palette perfectly beginner friendly and easy to use.
This is the first row with eye shadows. I like the highlighting color (1), which is perfect to use in your inner corner. Furthermore, I prefer to use these colors to blend in my crease, as it will lighten up the look a bit. The other three colors are perfect for the whole eyelid, as they are quite pigmented and easy to blend. The first row could be described as soft and friendly.
This is the second row of the palette. These colors are more pigmented than the colors on the row above, and contains a beautiful highlighting color as well (9). I prefer this row, as I use 7, 8, 9 and 10 a lot. In total, the palette is complete with different shades and coverage.
For this look I have been using:
Whole moving eyelid – 7
Half moving eyelid – 6
Outer V – 10
Blending in crease – 2
Inner corner – 1
Next to inner corner and lower lashline – 9
KIKO Ultimate Pen Long Wear Eyeliner
Maybelline Colossal Volum’ Express Waterproof Mascara
So all things together, I have been enjoying this palette quite a lot. There are still new looks I discover every time I am using this palette, and I think it is really friendly to use, even for me, and I am like a noob in using eye shadows. But yes, this palette is helping me with that and the colors are good pigmented and blendable. It contains 12 different colors, which is just as much as a Naked palette, so for me this will do.
