Maybelline Nudes of New York Palette (Swatches)

Maybelline’s newest addition to their eyeshadow palette family, Nudes of New York, brings us a formula update.  If you are familiar with the Expert Wear Quads or the 12-pan palettes (nudes, blushed nudes, 24K nudes) then this will be quite a different experience.

The matte eyeshadows in this palette are very powdery, I’d say they are comparable to how Anastasia Beverly Hills (ABH) eyeshadow palettes behave.  They are not as pigmented as ABH shadows, that is just to give you a point of reference for the formula.  The powder kick-up is not my favorite type of formula, but a lot of people do prefer that these days.  The shimmers are not as loose as the mattes, but they still give good pigmentation.

I didn’t have any issues with fall out on my face because I’m careful with loose formulas. I just, in general, don’t like powdery shadows.  I like harder pressed formulas like Mac and Make Up For Ever (MUFE).  Sometimes Urban Decay, L’oreal, and Nars also have a firmer press on their shadows as well.  Despite that personal pet peeve, I think that the shadows work well and I always like how my looks turn out with this palette.  I think that if you are careful about the excess powder, these shadows are easy to use and blend.

You can find the Maybelline Nudes of New York Palette at Target for $11.99.
