Get that Natural Makeup Look with Maybelline The Blushed Nudes and Lip Flush

Beauty 9 Comments

Natural Makeup look is what most people aim for, especially to those who are new to makeup application and just wanted to take everything gradually. I also have clients, even brides, who want their makeup to be flawless, their skin but better, natural but enhanced. To achieve this, you don’t actually need to own tons of eyeshadow palettes. You can start with a palette with rose tones, nudes, and neutrals like Maybelline The Blushed Nudes palette.

For me, the Blushed Nudes is a nice dupe for Urban Decay Naked 3! Of course the quality will be different. It’s 600+ compared to almost 3k+. The colors are somewhat close, very beautiful for brides or anyone who just wants a flushed look, best when partnered with Maybelline Lip Flush for natural healthy-looking lips to jive with the whole makeup.

I’m so in love with the rose gold packaging with a clear lid where you can see all the colors in the palette. The selection is pretty and multi-functional.

3 Maybelline Blushed Nudes Swatches Review -

Most of the shades here are satin and shimmer.

4 Maybelline Blushed Nudes Swatches Review -

You can have as many combinations as you can. Go for Duos, Trios, or Quads.

I remember I have Urban Decay Naked 3 in my Makeup Artist Kit (yes I separate makeups that are for my clients alone). So here I got 6 shades from The Blushed Nudes close to Naked 3.

Left (The Blushed Nudes) – Right (Urban Decay Naked 3)

The other six colors, they are lighter and I can’t find their similar shade in Naked 3.

The names of the shades/colors in The Blushed Nudes are at the back of the box. However, I just don’t get the pattern like, which is which. I tried to check if the first 6 (left to right) are the names for the top row but it’s not, so I’ll name them to the best of my abilities based on how close the colors are shown in the box comparing each with the palette.

Pigmentation. The dark colors are very easy to work with. The color is visible to the eyelid even without primer. For the lighter colors, you need to put more layer to make them more vibrant.

Top Row: Left to Right
Shiver, Lingerie, Flushed, Brick, Angel, OxBlood

Second Row: Left to Right
Smokey Taupe, Chocolate, Burning, Mocha, Concrete, After Hours

Texture. They are not as creamy as you wish but they aren’t too chalky neither which is good since light colors and shimmer ones tend to be powdery. There’s a little fallout but honestly, I haven’t found any eyeshadow palette, even UD or Lorac that doesn’t fallout even a little, except for my Viseart palette.

Mostly shimmer with a few satin (Silver, Concrete, and Chocolate).  I didn’t use eye shadow primer but the colors are visible, what more with primer underneath. You can use them alone, your eye makeup will still last pretty much around 6 hours on vwards, as long as you don’t get too sweaty nor oily. I noticed minimal fading after 5 hours of wearing. Creasing will depend on your eye primer and concealer used as base.

To finish the natural makeup look, pair your makeup with Maybelline Lip Flush. The tube isn’t your ordinary Maybelline lipstick packaging. Lip flush is housed in a slimmer, sleek tube that feels classy. The color of the cap indicates the shade of the lipstick. I find it easier to choose what I wanna wear for the day.

I have 3 shades! PK01, PK03 and RD01. Very easy to memorize! PK for pink shade and RD for reds.

These are classified as moisturizing lipsticks but for me, they appear and feel more like lip butters because of the consistency, pigmentation, quality, and packaging.

11 Maybelline Lip Flush Swatches Review -

Maybelline Lip Flush are glossy/shiny like lip butters.

TIP: Exfoliate first with a lip scrub, I’m using one from Ellana Minerals. If you don’t have any, you can use a toothbush or wet wipes. Just a light scrub-a-dub-dub will do. It is very important that your lips are moisturized as it feels uneasy when you put on Lip Flush on top of your cracked, dry lips.

12 Maybelline Lip Flush Swatches Review -

PK01 is a light/nude rose color. It complements medium to fair skin tone.

13 Maybelline Lip Flush Swatches Review -

PK03 is very close to PK01. PK03 is just darker and mauvey-shhhh that can be your My Lips But Better shade.

14 Maybelline Lip Flush Swatches Review -

Go red with RD01. It’s a nice lip color for day to night.
Not the red shade that yells attention to people in the streets. 😀

The Office Look

(I used only two colors Flushed as base and brick on the corners
4. Maybelline Lip Flush in PK 03 on the lips.

When I had a regular office job, I wanted my makeup to be super simple and natural. This is exactly how I want to look like in the office. For days when I feel gloomy, I play with my makeup and wear more colors.

The Party Look
1. Maybelline Dream Satin Foundation B2
2. Hyper Sharp Blackest Black for eyeliner (apply thinly)
3. I added a pair of false lashes.

I’m really not a party girl but this will be the simple look I’d love to wear when given the chance to party!

TIP #2: For the Maybelline lip flush, it’ll pronounce dry parts of your lips upon application, even the cracks (yikes)! Leave it for about 1-2 minutes and you’ll noticed your lips feel more hydrated. You’ll notice dry patches are less visible.

  2. Love the shade of the palette 🙂 <3 I really want to get one but I just use up my money from online shopping lol. Too bad they have their sale when I was at the mall with my mom. They sell if for 499 and I am tempted to get one lol. Their palette is a must have hehe 🙂 Love the shade of the lippies but RD01 will be the lipstick that I will go for hehe 🙂 It looks good on you too Ms. Gen 🙂 ♥

  3. Super in love with seeing eye shadow palettes everywhere, unfortunately, I don’t know how to use them! 🙁
    Nude palettes are “in”, but how I wish I will learn to do the blending. No matter how much I watch Youtube videos of eye shadow tutorials, I just can’t do it. Haha. Sad 🙁

  4. Love the new palette of Maybelline! It looks very classy and elegant, the shades are very beautiful that can be use for a day to night look. 🙂 I swatched it at the store and the consistency is creamy and feels quite expensive for a drugstore brand. Hope it stays well on oily lids too. <3 Love all the looks that you did especially the work/ office look.

  5. I have PK03 and I wear it almost everyday since I purchase it. Planning to get all the shades that fit my skintone when I haved saved enough. This is really a good lipstick to achieve the no makeup makeup look. Hopefully I could get the nudes palette soon too. Ipon ipon pa! 🙂
    RD 01 looks good on you Genzel! <3
