Today I have a good mood and I hope all of you share it :) To celebrate my good mood I want to tell you my opinions about a current obsession: theBalm Nude'tude palette. As an introduction, all I can say is : OMG, I am in love!
The shadows come in a sleek cardboard package. It feel sturdy, but in the same time lightweight, making it perfect for traveling. The palette comes with 12 shades and a double sided brush. Believe it or not, I actually used more than one time the liner part of the brush. This is a plus, as I'm never using the applicators that come with palettes.The palette also comes with a nice big sized mirror, but because of obvious reasons, I didn't include it in the picture.
I chose the Naughty version of this palette (which comes with the picture of the naked girls), but there is also a Nice version. The colors are the same, the only difference is the picture inside the palette
Here are the swatches, followed by what I like and I don't like about this palette...
+good lasting power with or without primer( with e.l.f. eyelid primer 10+; without primer around 5 hours without fading) ;
+buttery texture (though the matte shades can be a little chalky they are totally workable with);
+great choice of colors and textures(mattes, shimmery and glittery);
+lightweight and sturdy enough to travel with;
-even though the cardboard packaging is perfect for traveling, it gets dirty easy and it is pretty hard to clean. This can be a minus for a neat person;
-there can be some fallout with some of the glittery, but this can be easily solved but doing your eye makeup first and then your face.
Just to add: I am in love with this palette and I can't wait to get my hands on other theBalm products.
What do you think about this palette? What was your experience with theBalm makeup ?
