SOO I got my hands on The Blushed Nudes Palette. Let me just tell you, this is my favorite palette from the line! I personally am a big nudes and rose gold eye makeup fan. It is a perfect everyday look that I believe looks great on every skin tone. Here is a review and some swatches on why this is a “HIT!” Also is this $9.99 dupe to $50 Urban Decay Palette 3?
The quality of the shadows are very similar to the other palettes, but for some reason I think the shimmer shades are so much more pigmented in The Blushed Nudes and The Nudes. The gold and pink rose gold are my favorite shades to use. The silver satin-like shades are sheer but do a great job on the eyelid. I usually prefer more mattes in a palette for transitioning and deepening an eye look, but all the shimmers and satins are great for a spring/summer look.
As you can see here by the swatches, the white and lightest silver shade do not really show up very well, while the more deep and brighter shimmers stand out. The last shade on the bottom right, is a deep purple with small pink shimmer in it, I love this shade. It is dark but can bring out a rose gold eye look at the same time.
If you are able to find this palette at Walmart then take the chance!
I do not own the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette but I have swatched it in stores so many times, and have used friend’s palette to know the shades are so similar. The quality of The Blushed Nudes, is drugstore. Nothing as marvelous as the Naked 3, but if you want those Rose Gold and Dusty Pinks, The Blushed Nudes is a buy for you.
From this picture you can see the similarities in shades!
Here is a great post from Karima, who shows, explains, and demonstrates the Naked 3 Palette since I do not own it.
