If I hear about a new beauty product more than a few times, I’ll usually try it. This fall it seemed that every magazine I picked up mentioned The Nudes- 12 shadow palette by Maybelline. Ordinarily, I’m a higher end make up kind of gal, but I have no qualms about checking out cost effective alternatives. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by The Nudes palette. It comes with 12 gorgeous colors that can be worn lots of different ways to create daytime looks or even a smokey eye for evening. The colors blend and wear well, my shadow stayed put. I tried both a lighter look for day and a heavier look for evening. There is even a guide on the back of the package, kind of like a paint by number. It shows you how to customize the colors using them as duos, trios or quads. I definitely give The Nudes palette two thumbs up! And the best part? It retails for $10.00, now that’s HANTASTIC!
