Ya gotta love The Balm Cosmetics and their unique packaging! 😉 I’ll admit I was a little … okay, a LOT hesitant to try the Nude Dude eyeshadow palette after my experience with the original Nude Tude palette. The Nude Tude palette didn’t have as much pigmentation as I would have liked and I felt like the colors ran together after wearing a look all day. I didn’t want to prejudge this palette, so I kept an open mind and after using it for the past month, I feel like The Balm did a much better job with this palette.
The color range is very good and they are not so similar to one another that you end up with one muddy look at the end of the day. The pigmentation of each of these is excellent, also. I didn’t feel the need to wet the eyeshadow before application ONCE and I barely had to load the brush at all to get the true color onto my lids. I didn’t experience any fallout with these eyeshadows, except for the initial application part (I am rather messy with eyeshadow though!), nor did I see any creasing after extended periods of time.
Overall, this is one I feel is worth trying. If, unlike me, you really like the original Nude Tude, I have no doubts you will LOVE Nude Dude! Haha … I just can’t get over my love for the name!
- Flirty (on lid, below crease)
- Feisty (crease and smudge out lower lashline)
- Friendly (outer v, into outer crease and line upper and lower lashline)
- Fearless (blend out crease)
I have both the “Nude Tude” & “Nude Dude”. I really like them both. I like that the light shades in this palette are matte unlike in the “Nude Tude” palette.
Your looks never cease to amaze me Zabrina! All of these looks are great! I have both of the palettes and really enjoy them very much. But I think I like the second one better.
