A Must-Have Eyeshadow Palette♥

theBalm cosmetics are a brand that I just kept hearing more and more of. I had seen their NUDE'dude and NUDE'tude palettes all over YouTube, and being an eyeshadow lover that I am, had made up my mind that I wanted to try one of the palettes. Whilst I was on holidays, obviously doing some shopping, I spied theBalm's palettes. I picked up the nude dude and left the shop after buying it. Course, I was delighted with my purchase and couldn't wait to try it out!

I felt I'd get more wear out of this palette rather than the nude tude, but honestly, I think I'd use both! Although it isn't all that clear from the photo, the packaging both looks and feels sleek. When I was holding it in the store, I knew it felt sturdy and wouldn't get damaged travelling home (luckily, it never!) I just could tell it was going to be a new love, as well as look fantastic sitting with my other palettes.

I, personally, find the packaging to be quirky and unique. None of my other palettes have designs behind the shadows like this one. I was pleased to see that it came with an actual brush, and none of those sponge applicators (Literally despise those!) which was an added bonus. In actual fact, I use the brush quite often as it's pretty good! Another great thing about the packaging is that there's a huge mirror! It comes in very handy, and is large too!


There's 12 eyeshadows in total, with a mixture of mattes and shimmers. Every single colour is HIGHLY pigmented, and I cannot express that enough! A range of different eye looks can be created, from natural, soft looks to dark, smoky looks. Lately, I've been loving golds, and have been reaching for this palette a lot. In all honesty, I don't think I could say I have a favourite shade, simply because there's such a wide variety to choose from.

I don't own any Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes (they retail at £38 each) and I do have the dupes, yet I've been reaching for this much more. It retails at £30 however, I only paid €19,95 from Primor for it! I'd say this is a palette every eyeshadow lover should own, as you can either wear minimal looks or go all out for it, with this one palette!

Do you own this palette? And what's your thoughts on it?

  13. The colours in this palette look right up my street. It sounds fab too, I can't be doing with poorly pigmented eyeshadows. I'm not keen on the packaging, it'd be nice if it looked a little sleeker but I understand they wanted to stand out from the crowd.
