I have been wanting to try out a palette from the Balm for quite awhile as I’ve seen some rave reviews. I decided to go with their Nude’Tude palette as the colour selection is just gorgeous and I love the mix of matte and sparkly shades. The shadows are super pigmentation and I’m so pleased with my choice as I already love this palette after only one use!
There are 12 shades in total all starting with an s and all fabulously named. There are four light shades including two pretty pinks, four brown shades and four dark shades, some of which are matte and some of which are sparkly.
Like any good pallette the selection is really varied meaning lots of different looks and colour combos can be created. There is also the all important matte black which is really pigmented and great for smoking out the lash line.
As soon as this arrived I was eager to get stuck in and play around with the lovely different shades, of course after I took lots of pictures of it in all its untouched glory for Instagram – got to have your priorities straight after all!
It came free with a little eyelid primer, Put A Lid On It, which was a nice siprise and works a treat as the eyeshadow has not budged since I applied it hours ago.
As soon as I opened the pallete the shade Sexy caught my eye straight away so I decided to create a look using predominately it aswell as some of the browns and I loved how it turned out.
If you are interested in how I created the above eye look below are the six steps, hope you like it and find it easy to follow.
Step 1: Apply ‘Sultry’ all over primed lids.
Step 2: Taking ‘Sexy’ on a flat eyeshadow brush apply to the socket line.
Step 3: Using something with a flat edge create a wing with shade ‘Sexy’.
Step 4: Pop ‘Seductive’ on the centre of the lid.
Step 5: Using the same flat edge and taking the shade ‘Sexy’ apply under the lower water line and extend to the outer v.
Step 6: Apply ‘Sassy’ to the inner corner of the eyes to add a pop of highlight and finish the look with lots of liner and lashes.
The shadows are so pretty and pigmented and are fantastic for blending, I am so glad I went with this palette and can’t wait to use it a lot more!
Have you tried this palette or any others from The Balm before?
