Drugstore Palette Thunderdome: Cast Your Vote Now!

Sent for review. Affiliate links. 

I'm picky with my palettes. I don't buy a lot of drugstore palettes because I've been burned too many times. But now there are two nude palettes available at your local Target. And they are both kind of great. Two palettes enter, one palette leaves! Which one do you choose?

Maybelline The Nudes on the left, Sonia Kashuk Eye Couture Shimmer on the right.
Nude Palette Number One: Sonia Kashuk Eye Couture Eye on Neutral Shimmer Palette. This palette contains twelve beautiful shades that all contain shimmer. Each shade is neutral enough to swing both ways and all shadows glide on like butter. 

With a primer, they wear as well as anything by Urban Decay and they don't get muddy when you blend. This palette runs the gamut between browns, golds and greys, like a good nude palette should. 

Pick it up for $20 at Target.

Nude Palette Number Two: Maybelline The Nudes. This palette also contains twelve lovely shades that range from almost white, to brown and all the way to black, with a mix of shimmering and matte shades of everything in-between. I was wow'd by how well these shadows wore over 12 hours (with a primer). They gave a lighter, less pigmented look than I expected, but that isn't a bad thing if you are trying to do a no-makeup look. 

This palette retails for $8.99 and is available anywhere Maybelline is sold. 

Which palette do you prefer? All shimmer and more pigment or a lighter blend of shimmer and matte?

  1. I would take shimmer and full pigment any day. The Maybelline palette seems to have pretty weak colors that don't seem like they would stay on someone as oily as me. Also Sonia Kashuk's packaging is more appealing to me. Squares are an aesthetically pleasing shape!
