My taste in eyeshadow is strictly tailored towards neutrals. So, when I see a new neutral palette that catches my eye I just have to buy it. I hadn’t heard much of the Balm cosmetics before I received a sample of their highlighting powder in my Birchbox. I was thoroughly impressed and figured the same would happen with the eyeshadow. The palette is only $36.00 and when you subscribe to their email list you’ll be sent a coupon for 10% off, making the palette only $32.00. I consider that a great deal compared to the Naked palettes that ring in at a whopping $54.00. You can buy the palette here. It comes in two versions, Naughty and Nice, and they are identical except for the inside packaging.
Here it is in comparison to the Naked 2 palette.
And some swatches…
The color payoff is excellent and there is minimal to no fall out. I love each of the shades, but my favorite is selfish. I can get many versatile looks out of this palette. Dare I say I use it even more than my Naked 2 palette? There are many options for day time and night time looks. There is also a great mixture of mattes and shimmers.
Price: $36.00 ($32.00 with coupon)
Brand: the Balm cosmetics
