Maybelline 24K Nudes Review

8 May

Press Sample

Maybelline is one of the drugstore brands that I just started using. The first product that I tried by them is their Big Shot Mascara which I also got from Influenster. This time around I received their brand new 24K Nudes eye shadow palette to review and they even threw in their Lasting Drama Eye Pencil and their The Falsies Push Up Angel Masara for a complete eye look.

The palette is one that beckons me because I am a natural look girl at heart and because I love shimmer in all forms. I can’t tell you how many palettes I own which are some version of a natural palette but there’s always room for more because I like to use each one for something else and because there are so many natural shades.


Maybelline 24K Palette Review

The Maybelline 24K Nudes palette has 12 colors which are all infused with metallic gold colors. Basically they combined natural and shimmer which are two of my favorite eye shadow themes. Since I prefer the natural look the palette is ideal for me because it gives me the natural colors that I like to use but it dresses them up a little bit. As far as daytime looks I love the colors and would even wear them for a casual night out. They’re so simple though that if I really wanted to dress up and go more dramatic then I would probably use one of my other natural but shimmery palettes.

The first batch of swatches of shadows are done without the use of primer so that you see what they look like naturally. As you can see the colors are very soft but what the images don’t show very well is the tiny specks of gold in each color. The specks are more apparent in the nude colors that the darker ones but overall you do get a touch of gold in each and every shade. When wearing the shadows though I don’t recommend wearing them without primer because they fade very quickly but that’s been the case with every single shadow that I’ve ever tried so far so no surprise there. Besides, it’s also a good idea to use primer to fill in all of those lines on the eyelid.

This second group of swatches is done with the help of my all-time favorite primer, Smashbox Photo Finish 24 Hour Shadow Primer which I love because it really makes your color pop. As you can see the colors are brighter, more intense and a little more shimmery. It’s a fantastic grouping of nude shades that can go from day to night.


The Maybelline 24K palette is one that every girl should have. It’s a palette that will look good on all skin tones, is easy to use and is travel friendly. If all of that doesn’t sell you then maybe the fact that it’s a drugstore brand that sells for under $12 will interest you. Whatever you’re reason for opting to try it, I think that it’s worth the purchase and I myself would buy it in the future.

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers

    Impressive looking swatches. They definitely are more pigmented than I would have thought, and it’s a nice collection of neutrals. I’m a fan of Maybelline!

    I love that you got this trio of goodies from Influenster. I usually get offered deodorant! I’ve seen the Maybelline palette many times and wondered about it. I’m glad to see the swatches.
