Okay, cheesy opening lines aside, I’m loving these ‘Nude ‘Tude eye shadows by The Balm! There are 12 shades in this palette. Each shade has a smooth, buttery consistency, and amazing color payoff with very little fall out. The palette offers a great mix of satin, matte, and shimmer finishes. My personal favorite in this palette is the shade Stubborn. It’s a gorgeous pale pink and champagne color with lavender flecks offering a satin finish. I feel as though the shade Sultry is a great matte light brown transition shade. This seems like it’s a great palette for doing neutral everyday looks, as well as doing fun and funky looks for a night out. The palette comes with a shadow/liner brush! It comes in nicely decorated cardboard packaging, has a magnetic closure, and a giant mirror.
I also have, in my hot little hands, The Balm’s Mary-Lou Manizer highlighter, shimmer, and eye shadow. Can I just say, “Oh my gosh!” What a beautiful highlighter! The best way I know how to describe it is: a neutral golden/champagne shade with gold and light pink shimmer flecks within it. Such a beautiful way to highlight the cheekbones, and the high planes of the face. I am so in love with it! It’s very pigmented too, which means a little bit goes a long way. It also means you will have it forever!
