Hello beauty nerds! Maybelline came out with “The Rock Nudes” palette after “The Nudes” and “The Blushed Nudes” for those who love sophisticated and mysterious looks. The palette aims to create style statements with classy, edgy and daring looks. Well, let’s see if it’s really worth the hype!

Packaging : The eyeshadows come in a black packaging. When opened, it reveals the 12 shades and a nice, dual-ended brush that solves the need to carry around brushes. It doesn’t come with a mirror, though. The packaging is travel friendly and the palette can be carried anywhere.


Shades : The shades are very edgy, bold and daring, if you ask me. They can be used to create gothic looks which look super mysterious. A few shades are matte while some are shimmery with tiny particles and some are glittery shades. It can used to create formal looks too. You can use these as duos, trios or quads.

Pigmentation : The shades are highly pigmented. These metallic shades provide opaque colour with just a single swipe.

Texture : The eye shadows are smooth in texture, however the white shade can be quite chalky, for some reason. They glide easily on the eyes and are smooth and creamy. It is very easy to blend all the shades. They feel quite lightweight when applied. They don’t crease or settle into fine lines.

Staying power : The staying power is about 5-6 hours, which you can easily prolong with a primer. They work well without a primer too but in case you need these to stay without budging at all, try them with it.



Pros :

  • Highly pigmented.
  • They don’t crease or settle into lines.
  • Matte, Metallic and Shimmery shades in one palette.
  • Staying power is excellent
  • Comes with a dual ended brush.


  • It doesn’t come with a mirror.
  • Some shades are chalky.


Verdict : A

Price : 925 Rs for 9 g

Recommendation : The Maybelline Rock Nudes Palette is a lovely palette for those who love to take their eye makeup game up a notch. You can easily make your eyes pop and create drama with these 12 shades. I totally recommend it to those who love dark, bold colors.
