Reader Swatches: NEW Maybelline The Blushed Nudes Eyeshadow Palette

Remember back at the end of February when I showed you that sneak peek at the new The Blushed Nudes palette from Maybelline? Well guess what? It's here!

Many thanks to reader Malory Lyn (@missmalibu88 on Instagram) for this one. Malory Lyn spotted The Blushed Nudes at her local Walmart this week and kindly shared pics (and swatches) with us. Take a look!

NOTE: As I mentioned in my previous post, I believe that The Blushed Nudes is going to be a Walmart-exclusive, just like how The Brights palette is exclusive to Target, and The Smokes palette is exclusive to Walgreens (The Nudes palette is available everywhere).

(retail: $9.98 at Walmart, 0.34 oz)

Keep reading to see Malory Lyn's swatches...

I have to admit, I'm kind of bummed that the palette itself is not pink, as displayed in the Walmart listing!

Swatches by Malory Lyn (no primer)

Malory Lyn said that she quickly swatched these on bare skin for this pic (no primer). And just like the other palettes in this range, Malory Lyn said that some shades are nice, while others are not so nice. You can see that the lighter shades appear sheer and powdery in her pic above, but some of the deeper shades look smoother and more pigmented.

I see some potential lookalikes here as I'm looking at my Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. I can't wait to get this one and do a full comparison post (hopefully it pops up at my local Walmart soon--it is not yet available for purchase on the Walmart site, as of the time of this post).

Have YOU spotted this palette at your local Walmart yet? Thoughts?

Thanks again, Malory Lyn, for the great pics and swatches. I really appreciate it!

  1. Darn these Walmart-exclusive releases! I need to move somewhere with access to all drugstores to satisfy my limited edition/release makeup addiction. :)

  4. I told myself I wasn't going to buy this since the other three palettes are just ok, but now that I see an actual picture of it, I really want it. However, I'm going to be good and wait for your review and then make an informed decision!

  7. I've just quickly glanced at the swatches and while it's a pretty palette, I think the Wet n Wild Smoke palettes have it beat and were cheaper.

  8. Am I hallucinating or are the eyeshadow colors drastically different between the pink colored container and this one?

    3. Actually...I think it's the same colors, but not in the same positions?? Like, the reddish one in the top right corner here is in the bottom left corner in the Walmart pic (I'm looking at it through the Walnart app)...

  9. I love a good deal, but these looks very frosty. Are there any mattes? Thanks for sharing. It's good to see drugstore brands offering palettes and higher end looking products.

  13. Went to Walmart specifically for this and I'm so pleased! It's beautiful. Especially since I use a eyeshadow primer.(NYC City Proof 24hr) it's soooo much better than the original nude palette, which I have. The taupe purples are my favorite! And the rosy shades lol.

  14. I spotted the blushed nudes at my local wal mart! Thank goodness for this review! I have the nudes and am considering the blushed nudes since I like the nudes so far. :)
