Swatch: theBalms NUDE'tude palette

Since this palette came out in 2011 (?) it became needle in my eye. Its so gorgeous and pretty and cute and quite expensive.
I was searching the net so see if it still was on the market, but I couldn't find it (maybe I didn't search that well) but I was able to find it on eBay. I wasn't gonna buy it. Just look at it and sigh about the cost of it. Then boyfriend said "Buy it. We can afford it." Aaaand so I did. I do think the palette was more expensive on eBay, but as I said, I couldn't find it anywhere else (of course ou can find it on theBalms homepage when I looked just moment ago).
So. This is my first product from theBalm. And I bet it wont be the last. The packaging is stunning with them naked ladies, and the eyeshadows are divine!

Sedan den här paletten kom ut under 2011 (?) så hade den blivit en nål i ögat på mig. Den är så snygg och fin och söt och aningens dyr. 
Jag letade på nätet för att se om den fortfarande fanns att köpa, men jag kunde inte hitta den (Kanske sökte jag inte så bra) men jag hittade den till slut på eBay. Jag hade inte tänkt köpa den. Bara titta lite och sucka över priset. Sedan sa pojkvännen "Köp den. Vi har råd." Ooooch så gjorde jag det. Jag tror att den var lite dyrare på eBay, men som jag sa, jag kunde inte hitta den någon annanstans (självklart kan man hitta den på theBalms hemsida när jag kikade alldeles nyss)
Så. Det här är min första produkt ifrån theBalm. Och jag slår vad om att det inte blir den sista. Förpackningen är ursnygg med de nakna damerna, och ögonskuggorna är gudomliga!





 Swatches in different lights.. Sowweh.
All shadows are swatched on NYX HD Eyeshadoe Base at the top, and on bare skin lower down


As you can see, all the shadows are really pigmented, even the lighter ones!

Sassy: Frosted white. I dont like frosty shadows that much, but this one is easy to dilute.
Snobby: Yellow/Peachy colour with golden shimmer
Stubborn: Seems darker in the pan, but is a light glowy pink. One of the least pigmented ones.
Stand-offish: Very frosted nude colour. Really easy to work with. 
Selfish: Shimmery taupe. Smooth as butter.
Sultry: Warm, medium brown, matte and fabulous!

Sophisticated: Dark brown on the colder side.Golden shimmer in it.
Seductive: Bronzed medium brown. Previously named Schitzo
Sexy: A purple based matte brown. Great texture.
Silly: Redbased brown, filled with copper flakes and sparkles. Sooo pretty! Not that great texture.
Serious: Matte black. Smooth. Yummy.
Sleek: Dark brown. Matte.

All the mattes in this palette are wonderful. Easy to work with and pigmented as hell. No patchyness here!
The duobrush that comes with the palette is not that horrible, works fine in a pinch. 
Im so glad I bought this palette :D Its large and in charge. And pretty as all hell.
It also comes in a palette without the naked ladies, but with the same shadows.

  1. Jag älskar the Balm! Har inte den här paletten men flera andra och satsar på att komplettera med denna framöver:) färgerna ser jättefina ut och de verkar ha bra kvalitet, synd bara att det inte ingår en matt highlighter...

  2. Wow! I was worried this palette would be too similar to the Urban Decay Naked palettes but I can see that it's not.
