Quick Swatches: Maybelline The Blushed Nudes


Maybelline The Blushed Nudes  (2)

Maybelline added a new palette to their collection, The Blushed Nudes. This palette joins The Nudes and The Brights (which I never found) to create a solid trio of eyeshadow palettes to create eye looks for less. I wanted to share swatches of the palette to help you decide if it is worth a trip!

The Blushed Nudes is a 12 pan palette with a mixture of rose toned shadows, metallic shades and taupes. There is also a mixture of finishes: matte, satin and metallic. The mattes perform the worst in the palette, the metallic and satin shades perform the best. I found that picking with shades with the applicator that comes in the palette works best.

At first swatch you will assume this palette will swatch horribly, but what I did was, I loosened each shade up a bit with my index finger. This allowed for more intense pigmentation.

    I don’t wear makeup often , but I think I’d try this palette so it won’t feel like a complete waste of money if I hardly touch it.


  2. Joanne T Ferguson

    I don’t wear makeup often either but love the palette as it does have quite a variety of options!


  3. AJ @ NutriFitMama

    I think this is a gorgeous palette- pretty colors that I would actually wear.


  4. Sage & Simple

    Those are totally my colors! I haven’t bought an eyeshadow palette in years. I hope this one is available in Europe at a decent price point. I want to play 🙂

    That palette looks really lovely, I have quite a penchant for eyeshadows, I have so many! When swatched some of the shades look similar to the Urban Decay Naked palette I think.


  6. Liz Mays

    I really like the darker pink colors. I haven’t tried this palette but it looks great.


  7. Amanda Simkin

    Nudes are so flattering on everyone and are appropriate for all occasions. Love how you line all of the colors up on your skin…makes sense and also makes a fun photo!


  8. Liz Leiro (CaliforniaPretty)

    This looks like a nice almost-dupe for the Naked 3 palette 🙂 I’ve been in love with Makeup Geek eyeshadow as of late, but in a pinch this might be something to try!

      Makeup Geek has some AMAZING colors!

    I was just about to say what @lizleirocaliforniapretty:disqus said. 🙂 Looks just like the naked 3 palette. If you don’t loosen it up.. does it now show up well?


    1. GlitteryGlossy

      Correct. It’s just best to do it for better pigmentation. Just wiggle your finger over every color just a bit when you get it home. It will work well

  13. Reginia Cordell

    I recently grabbed one of the other nude palettes that I saw via Youtube. I’d love the have the blush palette for summer.


  14. Rebecca Swenor

    This is awesome indeed . I am going to Walmart tomorrow so I will have to pick one of these up for sure. I love the colors and the way you showed them. Thanks for sharing.

    I’ve heard this pallet is awesome! I really need to try it and see if it measures up to my UD nakeds!


  16. Kristen

    I just started getting serious about wearing eye shadow again. I would love to try all these colors!!


  17. Beyond Beauty Lounge

    I never found the brights either, but swatches that I saw of it were not good. I grabbed this one a few weeks ago and I like it.


  18. Penny Struebig

    Oh my — I love these colors! And at $9.99 so affordable. I’ll be checking this out for sure.

    Very pretty colors. My favorites are the nudes! I’m always drawn to those.
