Maybelline The Graffiti Nudes Eyeshadow Palette - Photos and Swatches

July 14, 2016

Maybelline has a new eyeshadow palette that is only available at Ulta called The Graffiti Nudes. It comes with 12 eyeshadows and it has a good mix of neutral shades and bright colors. These eyeshadow palettes from Maybelline can be hit or miss, so I was curious to see how pigmented the shadows are and how easy they were to work with. See swatches and more on my thoughts below!

More information about the Maybelline The Graffiti Nudes Eyeshadow Palette:
Tailored in technicolor, Maybelline's bright bold shadow palette, The Graffiti Nudes Eyeshadow Palette, features a range of 12 street art inspired shades from fierce fuchsia to trippy teal to bring out your inner urban artist. Dare to get the Graffiti Nudes look!

Since I did the swatches with 2 rows, let me first talk about the top row. The last two shades in the top row were the stand out shades and were the easiest to work with. The purple and blue shades needed to be built up more. The black eyeshadow was a bit chalky and not the best black shadow I've used. The first shade is nice, but nothing really unique. I feel like I have that shade in many other palettes. 

The bottom row also has a few really nice eyeshadows that worked well and were pigmented. The bright blue, copper, and pink eyeshadows all were good. The first, third, and last shades were shimmery and not very buildable. I really had trouble with the last and first shadows since they weren't pigmented much at all. 

There are shadows in this palette that are a miss, but also some that are pigmented and they blend well. So for me, about half of the palette is good quality and the other half is just okay. Remember that this palette is only $10 which is not bad for 12 eyeshadows. Let me know your thoughts on this! Will you try or will you skip?

Maybelline The Graffiti Nudes Eyeshadow Palette retails for $9.99 and can be found exclusively at Ulta. This is limited edition and in stores on July 31st.

  1. I'm totally skipping. This isn't something that can be a stand alone palette, and why are there so many highlight shades that all look so similar? Oy vey, Maybelline.
