TheBalm Nude 'Tude Eyeshadow Palette

Tuesday, 12 August 2014

Hey Dolls.
Today I'm going to be talking about a palette that hasn't been in my life long but has certainly made it's way to the top of my favourite things to pat, blend & smudge onto my lids.

The packaging is incredible! It's sleek, sturdy & features a magnetic closure that keeps the eyeshadows safe & sound while your not using it. The palette has a decently sized mirror & comes with a double ended brush.

The palette contains 12 beautiful eyeshadows:

Top Row:
Sassy - Frosted White
Stubborn - Frosted Medium Pink
Selfish - Frosted Taupe
Sophisticated - Shimmery Chocolate Brown
Sexy - Matte Burgundy
Serious - Matte Black

Bottom Row:
Snobby - Shimmery Yellow-Gold
Stand-offish - Frosted Light Pink
Sultry - Satin Medium Brown
Seductive - Frosted/Satin Golden Bronze
Silly - Glittery Coppery Brown
Sleek - Matte Dark Brown

Does anyone else love how all the shades begin with S?

My favourite combination of eyeshadows from this palette has to be Selfish patted onto the lid, a little bit of Sultry or Sophisticated blended into the crease & Silly smudged into the bottom lashline. 

The palette is incredibly diverse, there is a shade for every possible need. You have shades to highlight with, blend into the crease, smudge into the lashlines etc. You can create a multitude of looks for both day & night without switching to another palette. When it comes to the finishes, there is one to suit everyone. From mattes to shimmers to satins to shades that are packed full of glitter. It may just be the perfect palette.

The quality of the eyeshadows is phenomenal. They are buttery soft, easy to apply/blend, has minimal fall out & lasts all day without creasing or fading. The pigmentation is incredible for each & every shade, even without a primer to intensify them.

All in all, I adore this palette. The quality & shade selection is incredible. I am also quite surprised that the shadows lasted a decent amount of time on my eyelids before the oil took over. That being said, I do recommend that you always use a primer. It not only prolongs the wear of the eyeshadows but in some cases it can make them look more intense. 

Are you a fan of TheBalm? What is your favourite palette?
