Throwbacks to Mary Anne’s videos: contouring and highlighting with the Anastasia Contour Palette, and an easy daytime glam makeup look, featuring The Nudes eyeshadow palette by Maybelline.
Do you want to learn some face contouring tricks, a simple smokey eye, plus an easy daytime glam makeup look? This is for you! I posted a couple of new videos on my CruzTube channel, and I would love for you to check them out! They feature my Filipina cousin, Mary Anne, who visited me last week from San Francisco. She is naturally beautiful, and it was so much fun to get to feature her “guest face.”
She requested a video doing an easy daytime glam look, as well as a smokey eye look for evening.

I’ll be coming out soon with a video featuring her teenage daughter, Leanna, who also happens to be my goddaughter! Stay tuned and subscribe to my channel so you don’t miss it. 🙂 Thanks for watching, see you in the next video!
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. 🙂

Hey there, beauty junkies! I review and swatch Maybelline’s The Nudes palette in this new CruzTube video. The website dares you to go nude, with this reason:
Why You’ll Love It
I purchased my palette for only $9.98 (not including tax) at Walmart, and I think that’s a STEAL! Watch the video for my full review.
I heart this palette for the price and compact size! The shades are buttery smooth, buildable and blendable. 🙂 There’s also brilliance in the way the back of the packaging lists ways you can combine the shadows, so it’s great for beginners who are looking for easy eye combos and simple methods (the back also shows where to place the shadows on your eye).
It lacks a good champage-colored inner-eye highlighter color, in my opinion. The two lightest shimmery shades don’t show up enough on their own in my inner eye corner. That’s a minor flaw, one that I’m willing to give it a freebie pass on, since this palette gives you so much bang for your buck, it can’t be beat!
Today and yesterday I’ve been rocking some new clothes I bought online for sale at Old Navy. They did take about 9-10 days to get to me, unfortunately, but I was just glad to get them finally.
