theBalm Nude 'tude' Eyeshadow Palette


I took some swatches which I've added below. Some shadows are better than others but overall they feel soft and creamy. I think this is a great palette for any Nude lover, I've been using this palette daily. My favourite shadow is Selfish, I love how well they all work together. Stubborn is a great shadow to use if you want to soften any harsh edges.

 1. Sassy / 2. Stubborn / 3. Selfish / 4. Sophisticated / 5. Snobby / 6. Stand-offish / 7. Sultry / 8. Seductive.



9. Sexy / 10. Serious / 11. Silly / 12. Sleek  


To create the look below I used Sassy in the tear duct area as the highlight and softly on the brow bone. I then used Stand-offish on the lid and buffed into the crease. To add a little depth I added Sultry which is the perfect matte brown, I placed this on the outer corner of the eye and blended it into the socket. Finally I added Sophisticated on top of Sultry to intensify the look. All these eye shadows blended so well together. To finish off the look I used the double ended brush which comes in the palette. Using the eye liner end I used Silly as a top and lower eye liner.

I'm a big fan of the brand theBalm, I've been trying out a couple their products and today I want to share with you my thoughts on the Nude 'tude Eyeshadow Palette*. There's 12 eyeshadows to help you create a daytime or evening look. This palette is a must for any Nude fans and great for Autumn/Winter. The palette is very versatile thanks to the 4 base shadows which are the lighter shades and the other 8 darker shades are great for a smokey more intense look. Perfect for parties! The cardboard packaging may put some people off but I like it, I love the sexy retro pin-up ladies and the names of the shadows, very quirky.
The palette is a nice size, it contains a generous sized mirror and a double ended brush. I'm normally dubious of the brushes/applicators which normally come with palettes but I have to say this one is actually good. I use the eyeliner end to add the darker shadows as eye liners and it works really well. I like to wear a top liner but sometimes I find it looks a little too much especially if you're trying to create a natural look, so using an eyeshadow works well. The palette is nice and slimline, it has a magnetic fastening. The other theBalm eyeshadow palette which has caught my eye is the Shady Lady Zebra Eyeshadow Palette. Has anyone tried this one? The shadows look so pretty.

Keep a look out for my next theBalm review featuring the Mary Lou Manizer Highlighter!
