Unbelieveably, the Maybelline Rock Nudes Palette launched in the US last year – I’ve seen reviews from 2015 which just goes to show how out of step products can sometimes be in global markets. However, it’s worth the wait if you’re edging for a dark smoky eye with a smattering of shimmer. I particularly like the shimmer shot black.
This is Row 1.
And this is Row 2. These pictures aren’t showing how shimmery the shimmers are but they really glimmer in the light. It’s such an easy wear palette and a shake up of the usual beige-led line up. Maybelline palette are usually around the £10 mark which seems good value to me. The one thing I don’t like about these palettes (this is the latest in a series of ‘nude’ palettes) is that the colours are all flush in the pans with no lip around the squares of colour so there is very little separation from one shade to another. It’s very easy to knock a bit of one colour into another. Texture wise, they’re wonderful – very, very smooth and in the swatches I used the sponge applicator with just one swipe of each colour.
The Maybelline Rock Nudes Palette should be launching in around August time – towards the end, so it looks like a good palette to kick of autumn with.
