Birchbox Breakdown

Some girls feel naked without a coat of lip gloss, but we refuse to step outside without wearing a touch of eye makeup. Happily, TheBalm®’s gorgeous shadow palette is there for us whenever we need it. With twelve shades ranging from a shimmery taupe to a midnight black, it’s easy to experiment with an infinite spectrum of looks.

How it Works

Each palette comes with a whopping twelve shadows that can be worn alone or layered for sultry effects, plus a two-sided brush that’s perfect for contouring. All the neutral shades work in harmony, so you never have to worry about matching colors.

How to Use

Sweep the shadow onto your lids with the brush. Mix and match the different shades depending on your mood. One of our favorite combos: a wash of Snobby (a gorgeous sand) all over our lids, followed by a touch of Sassy (a cool white) just below our brow bones.

These eyeshadow shade are so perfect for summer such a variety of colors. The colors are buildable, go on smoothly, long wearing and just pretty.

Easy "Nude Look" Palette
Purchased

This palette is pretty perfect for creating an essentially matte (or shimmery) nude look for day time. Plus, you can always darken it up for a look more suitable for nighttime. I am pleased with my order & cannot wait to try out more of the items/products from The Balm :) Especially more of the "raved about" makeup that is frequently featured on youtube.

A must have

I love the neutrals with a touch of shimmer. Whether you use just one color or a combination this palette never looks overdone.

The Balm- Nude Tude
Purchased

I haven't purchased a palette in a very long time and this brand is new to me. The colors are very rich. I like that there is a mix of matt's and metalics. The metalics are not overbearing (minus 1 color called silly- it's a litte too glittery on it's own but blended with other colors it's nice). I really like every color and the feel is like satin. It doesn't crease with time and holds all day. I also received a free sample with purchase of How about them apples in apple pie. This is the cutest little thing and I love the color. It's just the right amount of pinkish red.

Great palette!
Purchased

This is a great palette. When I travel I only have to take this and I'm covered for eye makeup. Some of the colors are too dark to use as eye shadow but I've been able to use the darker shades as eyeliner. Love the package - very cute.

Love almost every color

I really love the formula of these shadows. They are very high quality. I also think the packaging is super cute. I like almost every color but the two lightest ones. That is just personal preference though. I don't care for white shadow. The only reason I'm taking off a point is that the brush it comes with is horrifically awful. I wasn't expecting to use it anyways but it is probably the worst brush I've ever gotten with a product. I don't even think I could make it work in an emergency.

Not that impressed
Purchased

I bought this palette based on all of the fantastic reviews... and who can say no to a neutral palette? We all have at least 5.... LOL... I find that these colors are not that pigmented and don't feel buttery smooth like my other palettes. I am not sad that I got it but it is not my go-to and will hardly be used. I would say get the Coastal Scents Revealed one or the Stilla "in the know" over this.

So excited to use this!
Purchased

I've been wanting a good eyeshadow palette for a long time!! These shadows are beautifully pigmented and not too crumbly. The packaging is cute- I just wish Birchbox offered the other version of the packaging with the cute ladies on it. I almost didn't buy it because I've been wanting the other version for a while- but the shadow is the same so I sucked it up.

Love Hate Relationship

I love this palette because the shades are amazing but the staying power is not so great. Also I have to pack on for some shade because they go on shear.

LOVE!!!

I LOVE this palette! I have used every color, and they are all great. Very pigmented but still very blendable. Packaging couldn't be cuter and very easy to travel with.
