The Balm: Shady Lady Palette


I'll just be honest, usually small palettes like this (think the ones by Urban Decay) usually disappoint me. They usually only have a few colors I like and I almost always find myself having to reach for other eye shadows to round it out...like a good highlight and a good dark shade. This one seriously has it all. All of the colors are amazingly pigmented as well. While there is a great range of different colors included in the palette, they actually could all pair and combine really nicely to create a countless amount of looks. The palette contains 9 colors--6 eye shadows and 3 shadow/liners. I also absolutely love the packaging. Not just the cutesy leopard print, but I love how small and sleek it is. It's very portable (especially with the giant mirror inside). The fact that they've wasted no space on awkward, useless applicators that would just go into the trash is also a plus. And because good ingredients are always a plus in my book, I've got to mention the fact that it earned Sephora's "Natural Seal".

OH, and did I mention all shadows in the palette can be used wet or dry??




You can get this limited edition (Sephora exclusive) palette for $38 at sephora.com

  6. Thanks for review this Tif! All the reviews on Sephora said these weren't very pigmented and I was iffy about this brand. Now I'll have to check them out next time I am at Sephora!

  9. Hiiii
    I've just found you at you tube, OMG it's amazing everything you do, I just loved it. I'm brasilian, so many things you use we just don't find it easier, and when we can find it's so expensive that buying it isn't a good ideia, I most use thigs like avon [this I'm sure you know] and some other nacional products, put usually they are a little expensive too [for us of course, because for you, samething that cost 1 for us cost 10 times more], but I trie. I'd like to add that the blue make green eyes apears more green. I do want to contact you, if you have MSN please add me-> bihpink@hotmail.com <- if you don't you can just write to me, I'll be really pleased. Thanks for the atention and sorry for the mistakes.

  15. I was wondering if anyone has tried The Balm Concealer. I recently bought it and it goes on great for skin with a few wrinkles around the eyes (very creamy and not cakey) however, it causes my mascara to smear under my eyes. Was considering the powderflauge by benefits. Anyone else tried this product?
