PERFECT palette for everyday wear!

I have this palette, I bought this on sale at overstock a while back. I use this almost daily, these shades are super wearable, super pigmented, little to no fall out, long wearing, easy to blend and the perfect matte neutrals. I highly recommend this palette! The packaging is adorable and so funny!

Holy Grail Palette

Love the mattes in this palette as it gives me color intensity without the shimmer of other palettes. I love to mix it up however I have used this palette everyday for the past 2 years. Everytime I thjnk I'll try something else I go back to matte nude since it's so natural.

LOVE TheBalm!!

I didn't purchase Meet Matte Nude through Birchbox, but I wish I had so that I could have gotten the Put A Lid On It in addition to the palette! TheBalm has the best products.....there is not a TheBalm product I have been disappointed in. The colors in this palette are matte (hence the name), vibrant and can be used for day or night time. Also, I'm a sucker for packaging. The names of the colors are somewhat seductive and I can't help but find it amusing! There is minimal fall-out and the colors blend so well. This palette is suitable for any skin tone/color. I will continue to purchase this brand. Thank you, Birchbox, for selling the best products ever! I highly recommend this palette!

Amazing palette
Purchased

I am really loving this palette! Using the primer is a must as the eyeshadow stays on all day and does not crease. The actual product was much bigger with more product than I expected so it made for an even sweeter purchase. Happy customer!

A must have palette.
Purchased

I love my neutals, shimmers, and bright colors, however, this palette made me fall in love with mattes. When I first saw it, the colors looked dark but when you swatch it, it's surprisenly pigmented with beautifuk, rich colors. you get a lot of eyeshadow with this too. It's huge! Plus you get a full size eye primer for only 6 dollars more than the actual retail cost of the palette. You can't beat that deal.

A great duo at a great price!
Purchased

I had wanted to get just the palette, but at the last minute went with the duo and am so happy that I did. I love the Meet Matte Nude palette so much and the primer works wonders with the eye shadows in this palette and all my other eye shadows. Buying them together is not only a great deal, but saves you A LOT of money!

just ok
Purchased

I have all the other nude eyeshadows and love them. I liked the idea of a matte shadow for day wear, but it's very powdery and doesn't go on well.
