Maybelline Blushed Nudes palette

I know a lot of beauty gurus aren’t a fan of this palette and I understand why. The pigmentation isn’t amazing, and the sadhows don’t have the softest of finishes. But when you’re looking for easy makeup looks, this palette is kind of perfect. Lazy girls, this is a drug store item for us!
