We've seen prestige brands with nude palettes reach cult-status left and right, but sometimes we need to give our wallets a little breather. It got us thinking that there has to be a nude palette on the market that's budget-friendly without sacrificing quality results. So, we combed through thousands of reviews on Influenster to find a seriously game-changing palette with over 1,600 reviews and a 4-star ranking. Enter: Maybelline's The Nudes.
What it is: Maybelline Expert Wear Eyeshadow Palette-The Nudes ($11.99)
Why it’s a hit: This 12-shade collection is an Influenster favorite because of its ability to create infinite looks with sultry sands, beiges, bronzes, and taupes. The range of colors makes it versatile enough to sport a classic daytime look, or something more smokey at night. Additionally, it's crease-free formula makes it a total win!
What Influensters are saying:
“Everyone needs a nude eye-shadow palette to add to their makeup collection and this is mine! It's the perfect color scheme for when I want a neutral yet flashy look for a nice day look and can change it up by adding a more intense shade for night time. It is also a double duty for my eyelids and eye brows. Since I've never been able to find a brow pencil that doesn't make me look like I drew them on with a permanent marker, shadow powder is the perfect alternative to that drawn on mess. I'm in love with this product! Well done Maybelline! Well done!”- Missy C.
“I bought this on a whim while I was at Target shortly after it came out and I can honestly say it was one of the best $10 I've ever spent. I reach for this almost every time I put my makeup on for work since the colors work so well for natural looks. There's also a nice balance of matte and shimmer shades so you can go lowkey or amp it up a little bit depending on your mood or the occasion. The shades have good pigmentation and blend easily. You really can't get a much better deal for the money you're spending.”- Elsa B.
“If you are on a budget and want an everyday eye shadow palette this is the one you should get. It is so cheap and so good that you can make so many different looks with just 12 nude colors. I love this palette but I do have to say that the eyeshadows are as pigmented as I would want them to be, but just a little tip is to pray your brush with some make up setting spray, or even a spray bottle of water so the shadows appear more pigmented. Although you can make so many different looks by an everyday nude look or a smokey look by night. If you are wanting to buy this palette make sure to find Maybelline coupons in your newspaper because you can get this palette as low as 8 dollars at your local Walmart!! That is like buying a mascara! I highly suggest buying this palette, especially if you are a beginner and just trying out makeup for the first time!!”- Hope V.
