Just how much does Maybelline’s new eyeshadow palette, The Blushed Nudes, compare to Urban Decay’s Naked 3 palette? Watch my comparison review to find out!
I did my right eye with Naked 3 and my left eye with The Blushed Nudes, so you be the judge of how well they compare. I show swatches of both palettes near the end.
The Blushed Nudes:
*Pretty range of colors
*Pinks and rose-toned shadows are stylish right now
*Way more powdery, so there was more fallout than the Naked 3 palette
*You have to use more pressure when digging in to these shadows and applying them to achieve a similar look as Naked 3
*Legendary for the texture and consistency of the shadows– creamy and highly blendable
*Excellent color payoff
*Will last a long time (I suspect, based on my experience with my Naked 2 palette– still haven’t hit pan although I use it regularly)
*High-end price tag may not be worth it for some people
*Many of the shades are remarkably similar, like, why even bother having two of these shadows? I would have preferred a wider range of colors
My preference is for Naked 3 for the quality, but The Blushed Nudes for the price. My wallet just can’t justify the higher price tag, even for the better Naked 3 shadows. I personally think my eyes looked nearly identical at the end, so what’s the point of paying more?! Save the extra $44, people!!! Just go with The Blushed Nudes, LOL. 🙂

So many people have been posting on Facebook about Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes by Younique, that I went ahead and bought some of my own and did this video review about a $5.95 version of fiber lashes.
#ObsessionAlert — I am loving this brush, which has saved me so much time in my daily beauty routine. The more quickly I can get out of the door with a full face of makeup, the better! This brush truly helps with that.
–Replaces multiple makeup brushes. It claims to replace up to nine brushes plus a beauty blender, but I use it mostly for foundation, powder, blush, contour and highlighter.
–Goat hair bristles (cashmere) are unique in that the products simply slide off the hair and you can transition seamlessly between cream to powder products, and vice versa!
–It’s so big, it puts the products on your face more quickly since it covers more surface area at once.
–The magic is that it gives you an airbrushed look!
–The price is higher than I’m accustomed to paying. I paid $49 without tax for this brush at Sephora, but I found it HERE ON QVC for $39! You also get a Shimmer Skin Perfector Deluxe Sample if you buy it there.
–The bristles come off regularly. A bit annoying, but nothing I can’t handle for the high-quality output of this bad boy!!
