Several friends here have been raving about TheBalm’s Nude Tude palette and asked if I would be adding looks for it onto the site. With as many great things that I kept hearing about it, it was only natural for it to get its own post! 😉 After using it a few times this past week, honestly, I’m only semi-impressed by it.
What you see in the below swatches are how the eyeshadows SHOULD appear on the lid, and several of them do transfer well. However, there are a good many that lack great pigmentation and also had quite a bit of fallout during application and throughout the day. I was most least impressed with: Silly, Sleek, Selfish and Stubborn. Poor pigmentation, no real lasting power, quite disappointing. Despite those four, the other eyeshadows in the palette were pretty good and didn’t give me the troubles these four did.
Please note: You may notice in the below looks I’m favoring my right eye. I received a bug bite below my left ear that I appear to have had an allergic reaction to, which has in turn left that eye a tad irritated and swollen. So, I couldn’t create as many looks with this palette as I would’ve liked to today. As soon as it’s healed, I’ll be adding more to this post. All better! Thank you for the well wishes, everyone!
