the Balm Cosmetics, NUDE’tude palette

January 6, 2014




Remember my Oct/Nov Most Wanted post? Well the Christmas Fairies a.k.a my lovely partner Brains (with absolutely zero, zilch, none, nil help from Gemma *ahem*) granted my wish and deposited this into my very safe and excited hands.




I’ve wanted the balm’s “NUDE ‘tude” palette for so long that I was so excited to try this out. With 12 beautiful neutral shades, it’s a palette for all occasions, quite literally.





Top from left to right: Sassy, Stubborn, Selfish, Sophisticated, Sexy, Serious

Bottom from left to right:  Snobby, Stand-Offish, Sultry, Seductive, Silly, Sleek

All the shades are so unique in colour, which is what I love the most. I have recently been using the MUA neutral palette as my primary eyeshadow but found some of the colours are a little samey. These however are absolutely perfect, my favourites are “Serious” a matte jet black colour and “Sexy” which is a matte brick red-brown which I can’t wait to try out for stage since I think it many compliment my hair beautifully.

This even comes with a hand actual eye shadow brush, rather than those silly little wands. Although I doubt I will be using the brush to apply, if ever left in a situation without any makeup brushes, I can certainly make do.

Honestly though, if you love neutrals – buy this. You can get them online from Feel Unique for £26 – and trust me when I say this is worth every single penny.

Totally hellbent for the most amazing spoils (and a thank you to Brains & Gemma)
