Maybelline The Nudes Palette is here!

I have been coveting a nude / neutral palette for a long time. It has been *the* eyeshadow rage abroad ever since Urban Decay launched their Naked Palette. It is available in India in the grey market but the price is so prohibitive that I didn't think it was worth it.

Drugstore companies of course responded with their own versions - but that too were not available or launched in India. Our local companies like Lakme & Colorbar always seem to be a on trend trip of their own - and like eyebrows - felt this was a trend not worth responding to. And with Maybelline's history of late to never launches, The Nudes palette was something I put down on my - To Buy from Trip abroad list. I could have just gone to MAC or Inglot and got it custom made, but I'm one of those lazy girls who just wants a ready made palette.

Yesterday I stopped by the Maybelline counter to check out their new Colorshow lipstick launch. The counter had not yet recieved the full 32 shades and had like a very boring selection of 10 shades - most of them brown & purple.

I was about to walk away when the counter girl opened - what looked like a secret drawer at the bottom of the display - and there sat the tester for Maybelline The Nudes Eyeshadow Palette. I just stopped and stared for a minute unsure of what I was looking at. How is this here, and there hasn't been a peep from their PR on this? Did I miss it? Was I living under a rock? How did I not know this was here!

I quickly got rid of those thoughts, and did what any beauty blogger would do. I bought it instantly!!

Priced at Rs. 899/- for 12 eyeshadows - it was just hard to resist. (I got it at 10% off - just made the deal sweeter!)

And then of course I instagrammed about it:

I have had it for less than 24 hours, so I don't really have an holistic view of the product yet. I did use it last evening - I used the top row first shade as lid color, and the one to the right of it as crease - without any primer and it lasted okay for four to five hours.

I did realise that some of the colors they are not as smooth or uber pigmented as MAC or Inglot would be. But then I feel for the price - it is a good deal. The middle quad of shades are very pigmented & the colors are gorgeous.

There are tons of reviews online on the product already, so while I'm making up my mind about this, you can read those. I personal favourite is this one that has good swatches & a side by side comparison to UD Naked.

Now if I found out Maybelline has also launched the Blushed Nudes Palette, I'm gonna forgive them for all those 5 year late launches they have been subjecting us for the last few years!
