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.
These colors are great nudes, but my eyelids are too oily because this creases badly (even with an eyelid primer). Shame because it was so expensive.
The colors are very nice, however the packaging is not the packaging advertised on the website. I specifically ordered this because of the adorable pinup girl packaging. The palette I received does NOT have pinup girls on it.
It's not that this isn't a good palette. It's just nothing "special". I end up reaching for my UD Naked palettes more than this one. I think the layout of the shadows throw me off a bit because they are skewed. I keep wanting to straighten them out. LOL!
I was a little disappointed that MOST of the colors were shimmery. I go to naturals to look...well...natural. Shimmer isn't natural. They also accentuate every wrinkle which at my age I'd prefer not to do. The colors are beautiful, I just can't use most of them.
I bought this because I was looking for an alternative to my go-to neutral palettes from UD. I wanted a matte alternative. The colors are richly pigmented with not a lot of fall-out vs my UD palettes. Overall I really like this palette and plan to try more items from this brand.
I had high expectations for this. I got it and it was fairly small in size and it does not compare to the Nude palates. if you are use to the Nude shadows don't try it.
The colors are so so shimmery that I regret buying it. The only shades I end up using are the medium brown and black. They are a nice pseudo creamy consistency. Other than that, the eye shadows don't blend very easily and have significant fallout.
Truly a lovely palette, but regrettably I ended up returning as the shadow colors leaned a bit too far warm for my cool tone skin.
TheBalm does have clever packaging & it would have been an adorable palette to have if only for collectable reasons, but I really want a neutral/nude palette that I can utilize all the colors instead of maybe 1 or 2.
I bought this after being really impressed with thBalm's blush staying power. But when using shadow as a liner, I end up with some transfer to my upper lids and under my eyes. Even with a good primer. It's disappointing but I still love the product. Colors and versatility are amazing.
I don't like the brush that comes with it, it flings the power everywhere. I am going to have to get the foam applicators and see if I like the shadow more. I really like the presentation and palette and colors. The darks are really dark, which would work if it wasn't so messy.
