It has been quite a while since Maybelline launched The Nudes eyeshadow palette in the Indian market. I heard a lot of mixed reviews about this and thought I’d give it a try! The palette has a lot of Earthy shades which are great for creating different
looks. There’s one shade for every mood!
 
 
The palette is available for INR 899 but you can always avail some discount. 
Starting off with the packaging the palette is made of plastic and is pretty sturdy which is suitable for travelling. It also comes with a sponge applicator which isn’t very useful. One more downside is that there is no mirror. About the shades, there
are 12 in total which include 7 metallic and 5 matte. 
 
The colours are fairly pigmented but  work better if used with a primer underneath. They are really long lasting and stay on for a good 3 – 4 hours.
The metallic shades are a little creamy and pigmented but the matte shades are more on the chalky side and are less pigmented. You will have to put on 2 – 3 coats for an opaque application. The colours are very easy to blend!
 
Here are some of the looks that i created using the product:

 

  For the first look, I’ve used only shade 7 on the whole eyelid and used shade 12 on the end and the crease! You can layer it up and intensify the look according to your preferences☺ Use a mascara and a winged eyeliner for a more detailed look.

 Here’s how it looks once finished:

 
 
For look 2, I’ve kept it really simple and something that you can wear for a day look! I’ve used shades 8, 9, 10 and blended all of them together just at the crease! For a more precised look, I’ve used tape so that i get a perfect wing and just topped it up with a mascara

Here’s the finished look:

 


To conclude, I would say that this palette is no doubt cheap and worth the money you spend but if you’re looking for a more luxurious and professional blend of shades then you could go for something on the higher end but, if you need a basic set of eye
shades, this is your go to palette. 
 
Pros: ✔
Great quality
Amazing shades to choose from
Suitable for all skin shades
Many looks can be created
Pretty affordable for the quantity 
Travel friendly
 
Cons: ❌
No mirror
Some shades are chalky
 
So to answer the question vain or gain? I’d definitely say GAIN!
