GOLD DUST + The Nudes by Maybelline (First Impressions)

So I read about this Maybelline Palette.. The Nudes online about a month and a half ago. And have been on the hunt for one ever since. 
For a while I had been eyeing it up at a local CVS, and then it came... the 25% off coupon. 
I rushed to CVS, turned the corner where the Maybelline display was... and there it was. 
An empty display. 

Then I went to Walgreens. No luck. 
Then Walmart. No luck. 
And then Target. And there it was. Cheaper here than the 3 stores I had visited. 
Needless to say I was happy. So happy I actually squealed a little bit. 
I'm not lying. 
My boyfriend thought and still thinks that I am completely out of my mind because of how excited I get over makeup & a good deal. 
But there it was at Target for $9.99

10 nude eyeshadows. 
Shimmer, matte, metallic, and satin. 
Basically everything you'd want in a nude palette without paying too much for quality. I'm really impressed, and considering I'm not a person who loves drugstore products, that's saying something. 
Something else I feel worth noting about The Nudes is the matte black shadow, I don't think I've ever seen a drugstore brand come out with a decent black shadow. 
And by decent, I mean easy to blend, true black color without a ridiculous amount of fallout. The black in the palette gave me no fallout. As in 0 eyeshadow on my face. 
Even with my bhcosmetics palettes, I have to be careful with some of the darker shadows just to ensure I avoid a lot of fallout. 

But if you're just getting into makeup, and looking for an easy everyday, going out palette I highly suggest The Nudes by Maybelline. 

1. Revlon Colorstay Liquid Foundation in Caramel
2. Revlon Photoready Liquid Foundation in Caramel (used as concealer)
3. Anasatasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Chocolate
4. Too Faced Shadow Insurance
5. Maybelline The Nudes Palette
6. NYC Liquid Eyeliner in Black
7. L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black
8. NARS Powder Blush in Dolce Vita 

That's not an eye booger. I swear. 
Thank you a ton for stopping by!
