Maybelline New York the Rock Nudes Palette First Impression

Maybelline The Rock Nudes

How is everybody doing today?

I'm doing a first impression today on the Maybelline New York the Rock Nudes, which was a palette I got for my sister as we build her makeup collection so she can have smokey eyes. This is part of Maybelline's Spring 2016 collection. This palette cost $10 at Walmart but that might vary depending on your location and store. Like the other two palette each shade is just a number 1 - 12 rather than individually named.

Compared to the other nude palettes that we got, this one wasn't as pigmented. Plus one shade in this palette that I'm really disappointed in is the blue shade (second to last shade in the top row). It didn't come out blue but rather a blue tinted gray. Also they weren't as easy to blend or put onto my arm as I had to build them up to get several of the shades to even show.

For someone just starting out and wanted a nude smoky eye, this isn't the palette I would go for as it takes a lot of work just to build up color. Especially if you don't use a primer first.

What do you guys think of the Maybelline New York the Rock Nudes pallete?
