Maybelline The Blushed Nudes Expert Wear Shadow Palette At Walmart

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.


So today I reviewed the Maybelline the Smokes Eyeshadow Palette and I, well, to put it kindly, I hated it! So why in the world do I have a lemming for this Maybelline The Blushed Nudes Expert Wear Shadow Palette which is lurking on the site at the moment?

Do I need it?

Hell no!

Do I want it?

Hell yes!

It’s likely as dry and as dense as the Smokes and the Nudes Palette that I already own which makes me question my lemming sanity.

Ah the life of a makeup junkie.

One can hope that the Blushed Nudes proves better than what I’ve seen so far from these palettes.


Might this change my (our) mind?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Hello there! Thanks for sharing! I haven’t come across it until your post. Unfortunately it’s sold out on Walmart’s website but cannot find it at either cvs or Target. Do you know where else I can find it?

    • Isabella Muse

      i think it’s exclusively at walmart carolina I haven’t yet seen it anywhere else. from my understand walmart got the blushed nudes, target the brights, walgreens the smokes, and everywhere got the nudes! if I see it elsewhere I’ll yell 🙂

  • Carol G

    Muse, I feel the exact same way! I have all three of these palettes, so naturally I want this one too. Even though the other three are certainly nothing to write home about, when I saw this I was pretty excited. I guess I just always feel like I’m missing out on something if I don’t get it. Especially when it is “exclusive” to certain stores. I don’t know, I guess I just need makeup therapy!

  • Sarah

    I actually liked Maybellines The Nudes pallet and would love to have this, but I don’t shop at Walmart for ethical reasons. I’ve worked retail for years and they are the worst of the worst. Too, bad because I really wanted this palette because I love rosy nudes.

    • Majick

      RESPECT! Sarah, I don’t shop at Walmart either. (also ethical)

  • Angel

    Ah, the definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Well add me to the Insanity Club as I want this too! It’s soooo pretty!! And I really, really do not need this! Especially if it performs as badly as you fear.

    The junkie in me needed a fix today. I went to Walgreen’s and bought those two new Jordana lip stain chubby pencils you reviewed, plus two of their new matte lipsticks, also Jordana Sedona Red lip pencil and that new Wet n Wild concealer. OH and the only Color Tattoo in Black Orchid in the store. Got the last one, so lucky. It’s beyond gorgeous. I tested everything as soon as I got home. Definitely got my fix today LOL! And you’re my pusher 😜

    • Isabella Muse

      haha angel story of my life 🙂 sounds like a GREAT haul to me!

  • Christina D.

    Be strong, my sista! Yes, it looks lovely, akin to UD Naked 3 or Lorac Unzipped, but no — it’s Maybelline. They are toying with our emotions but you know what they say: fool me once, shame on you…fool me twice, shame on me.

  • barbara

    This looks lovely, and since I do own the other 2 I might as well get this too, even though they are not great, they are only 10 bucks. And did I see you say, Walmart Carolina???? oh, lucky for me as I am in SC…yayayayayya

  • Mary Beth Dearmon

    This looks so beautiful! I REALLY hope the quality is better than the others 🙂

  • Janessa

    I don’t own any of the Maybelline, but man you’re making me want this one real bad!! haha! I have such a hard time resisting Pinky-taupey-plum ANYTHING! Please follow up and let us know if you get it and how it is!

  • Majick

    The colors look really pretty – I hope this works for everyone who indulges.

  • Lacy

    I don’t have any of the new maybelline palettes but I REALLY want this one even tho they haven’t gotten the best reviews. But hey for $10 bucks, I’ll try it!

    If i order it online when it becomes available does that still count as shopping at walmart? I also try to NEVER shop there.

  • Jenna

    I think I’m one of the only people who actually like the Maybelline Nudes palette. I picked it up for $6 and while its not department store quality I was pleasantly suprised and reach for it quite often. I’d love if I could get the blush one for the same price 😛

  • Jennie

    This palette IS NOT yet available at or in stores. It is however coming soon 😉 As my local store has put up new shelving and promotions up today 🙂

    • maryann

      I just was at my local walmart today in NY and this palette is out on shelves at least in my neck of the woods it is. I wanted to buy it as I am a palette junkie but stopped myself because I have UD Naked 3 not to mention 1 and 2. I also have coastal scents palette that resembles UD Naked 3. I have the Nudes and the smokes (Maybelline) and they are ok but this one is sure catching my eye…hopefully I will stay strong and pass this one up.

  • Claudia

    I’ve got it! I’ve got it!!! Even though I’m also one of those who wasn’t madly convinced about the quality of the original Nudes Palette, I couldn’t help myself when I saw it at Walmart (Ok, I drove there mainly because I hoped they had it in stock!) The colors truly are beautiful, alas, the quality seems to be the same. I think it’s a tad better (I’m gonna be honest, it could be wishful thinking!), at least I felt so with two of the colors, but the color payoff isn’t really good, which is a shame.
    Would I buy it again?
    I’m a simply nuts?
    But what can I say, after all, you can make any eyeshadow work and I think I will use this quite often, just because it combines a bunch of colors that go well together and the Palette is nice and small for traveling.

    • Isabella Muse

      lol sounds promising to me I’ll try it Claudia 🙂 based your mini review

  • Heather

    I picked this up today on the off chance it will be good, I do not have any of the other Maybelline palettes. It looks really pretty in the packaging so I just couldn’t resist. I’m waiting for a more thorough review before I crack it open, just in case! I do love the size, it’s so nice and compact.

  • Dani

    After weeks of hesitation, I finally gave in & picked this up yesterday. I bought The Nudes and used it once, but I’m hoping it had more to do with the shades in it (which aren’t ones I often reach for). This palette, even if it takes work to get color payoff, might be more worth it to me because the shades are ones I cannot get enough of! I’ll be trying it out today, so we’ll see!
