I know this one is not a new product. Most of the bloggers have used it, loved it and recommended it. I had the Maybelline The Nudes eyeshadow palette on my list for a while now, just took me a little longer to give in to it. I don't use eyeshadows on a regular basis, and while I do buy some singles every once in a while, nothing is better than a palette. It has many colors and finishes in one compact place and you can easily carry them around while on the go.
My first palette was gifted to me by Smriti. The Accessorize Lovely Day one, and it takes care of the times I need some color. The next one I bought was the Makeup Revolution Iconic 3, which is a pretty neutral one but has cool toned shades. I also love the Sleek Oh So Special palette. What was lacking in my stash now were neutral warm browns that could be used whenever. After some thougt, I zero-ed in on The Nude Palette and it fits perfectly.
The palette is quite compact overall, I would loved it to have a mirror and a better applicator. There are instructions on the back guiding you on how you can use the shades as quads, trios or duos.
I have swatched the colors into sixes horizontally (top and bottom row). Take a look below :)
The palette features a good mix of satin and matte shades all of which work really well on Indian skintones. While all the 12 aren't perfect especially the matte black (no 12) being a total disappointment, lacking in pigmentation and being chalky, I am quite pleased with the others. The satin finishes are an absolute delight to use. As you can probably see in the swatches below, these are very well pigmented and go on super smooth.
Now, I know this is essentially an eyeshadow palette, but you can definitely multitask with it.
I like using the 2 matte brows (No. 6 and 8) to fill in my brows and I sometimes use No 1 as a highligter. My favourite shades would be 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 10 (4 and 10 are so so gorgeous).

Overall, it is a decent neutral platte, considering the severe lack of them in the Indian drugstore. I like that it has both satin and matte shades. I like that I can use the colors for different purposes. I like that I can just take this one along while travelling and it can see me through everyday wear as well as occasions. Of course, there are better ones out there from different brands, but this is probably the best you can get at the drugstore here.
