Maybelline New York The Rock Nudes Palette is a very basic palette, with average performance, at an affordable price. Even when I bought the palette, I wasn’t expecting a lot out of it, and it exactly what I was expecting from it.

So, about the palette, it comes in a tiny, plastic case, with a glass panel in the center. It has 12 shades in it- a mix of matte, satin, and metallic shades. All of the colors can be mixed and matched to create a variety of looks. Also, a description of how to mix and match is given on the back of the panel. The palette also has a tiny sponge-tip applicator, which I didn’t find useful, but you may.

Moving on to the shades, as I said, do not expect a lot. There are about 6 to 7 mattes, and the rest are shimmery shades. Most of them are smooth and soft, but some are chalky and gritty. Talking about the pigmentation, the darker shades are obviously better — the lighter shades, hardly visible. The application is not a problem, but blending them is a pain. They are very powdery, and I feel, their performance is terrible if you don’t use a primer beneath. Primer helps a lot in holding the color at a place and for them to stay put.

There’s also a lot of fallout. If you don’t use a primer, you can expect the shimmer to be all around your eyes and cheeks within a few hours. That also explains that these colors don’t ask very long. 4 to 5 is what is max.

If this is going to be your first palette, then probably you want to look for something else. Because it misses out on a lot of basic/transitional shades, but, again, if you own a lot of palettes, this will fit in well in your stash.

Perfect for parties and night outs.



Good pigmentation

Great for smokey eye



Lighter shades are not pigmented

Useless applicator

I own a lot of eyeshadow palettes, but most of them are nudes, neutral and warm colors that you can only use to create looks for work/college. I always had a hard time pulling off a smokey eye with the palettes I owned. So, just for the smokey looks, I got this palette, and I’m pretty contented.

Just like a breath of fresh air, this palette has changed the story of my eye makeup. I mostly only use the darker shades from the palette, and their pigmentation is pretty good. Even the white in the palette does a decent job of highlighting the inner corners of my eyes and the brows.

For me, at this price, I am pleased with the performance of the palette.

I wish the palette were as good as it looked.



Attractive packaging

Great shade range


No pigmentation

Doesn’t last long


First, why is this palette called ‘nudes palette?’ It’s nowhere close to being nude. All the whites, brights, and taupes are no way close to nudes. Anyway, I bought this palette because,

1. It was reasonable, and

2. It looked very attractive.

All the shades in the palette are so pretty and usable.

But, their performance disappointed me. 3 to 4 swipes are what you need for every color to show on your eye. The pigmentation is bad. And then, there are major fallout issues. They don’t stay in place, and if you dare to workout while wearing the eyeshadow, they disappear, leaving no trace behind.

Should have paid for half of the palette.



Easy to blend

Smooth application

Dark colors are pigmented


Uneven pigmentation

Some shades are chalky

I owned the 24K Nudes palette before this. And when I came to know about this, I thought it’s going to be great like the other one I had. But honestly, it’s not that great. I mean I won’t say it’ bad, but not all the colors are useable. Some just don’t show, how much ever you try.

I only use the darker colors from the palette to create a few looks for night-outs. Also, the palette is very tiny in size.

Is a primer needed with this Maybelline New York The Rock Nudes Palette?

Using a primer underneath will improve the pigmentation and staying power of all the shades in the palette. Primer will also prevent fallout of colors.
