When I first heard about Maybelline The Blushed Nudes palette, I was excited! This is the second palette from The Nudes palette collection. The first one came out in 2014. At the time of purchase, it was only available at Walmart. Now you can purchase at Target, ULTA, and even drugstores.

Thoughts: I'm a huge fan of Maybelline The Nudes palette. For that reason, I was extremely excited that they came out with another version.
Just like The Nudes palette, the dimension and style is the same. It comes with 12 eyeshadows. The Nudes were more golden brown, whereas, The Blushed Nudes is more on the rosy brown. It also doesn't come with a mirror.
Here's a closer look at the eyeshadows. It comes with different textures from semi-matte to metallic.

Unlike The Nudes palettes, this one comes with two applicators. In my case, it's useless since I use brushes.

Now for the swatches... It was taken on my hand with no primers.
This is the first three eyeshadows on the top row.

Now for looks I did with the palette...
Look #1:
I used the third eyeshadow from the left on the top row on the lid. Then the fifth color from the left on the top row on the outer half. Then I blended on the crease and outer v with the fourth color from the left on the bottom row. I also used CoverGirl Intensify Me! Liquid Liner in Intense Black.
Here's an overall look.
Look #2:
Sorry about the quality of this picture! I took several and this was the best one out of all of them. :X I used the first eyeshadow from the left on the bottom row on the lid. The second color from the left on the bottom row on the outer half. Then I blended on the crease and outer v with the fifth color from the left on the bottom row.
Here's an overall look.
Look #3:
I used the third eyeshadow from the left on the bottom row on the lid, and blended the crease and outer v with the fourth color from the left on the bottom row.
Here's an overall look.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all and just like The Nudes palette, it tells you which colors are best together. Of course, I don't follow the rules. I just mix whichever colors I like or think that will look good together. Secondly, I'm not too sure if it's my palette but I felt it was less pigmented than the first palette (The Nudes). From reading the comments on the website, it seems like I'm the only one who thinks that. :/ I had to swipe and press a lot on the eyes for it to show up. Other than that, it was easy to apply and blend. Third and this is personal, I'm glad it's not that rosy. I'm more a golden brown type of person. I found the colors decent but I still prefer the first palette. Lastly, it lasted all day on me. I read on the website some people found that it didn't last all day. I think they probably didn't use a primer or just my guess. I use primer with everything and they never fade within the day.

Pros:
* Versatile palette; from rosy to brown, light to smokey.
* Comes with a multiple textures; semi-matte to metallic.
* Travel-friendly.
* Easy to apply.
* Easy to blend.
* Does not fade.
* Does not crease.
* Long lasting.

Cons:
* Doesn't come with a mirror.
* Not extremely pigmented.

Would repurchase: No.

We need these palettes in Indonesia! :D Although the pigmentation of these eyeshadows is not very impressive.
