theBalm Nude ‘Tude Palette Swatches

    During their recent Hautelook event, I finally snagged the Nude ‘Tude Eyeshadow Palette from theBalm. I’ve had my eye on this palette for a veeeerrrry long time, and have fallen in love with every other product I have from theBalm. Running at $36 on their website, this could be a more affordable alternative to UD’s Naked Palette. However, I got it for only $19.99 during the Hautelook sale, so if you’re really determined to save money, I’d sign up and wait for their next event!

    There are two versions of this palette: Naughty (seen above) and Nice (the background of the pans is the same as the cover of the palette, for more modest makeup enthusiasts). The palette comes with 12 neutral eyeshadow shades, including shimmer, frost and matte finishes. These eyeshadows are SUPER soft and silky, and extremely blendable. They didn’t fall short of my high expectations.

    SophisticatedSophisticated: Deep brown with shimmer

    SexySexy: (my favorite shade) Chocolatey matte brown with bordeaux-red undertones.

    SillySilly: Chocolate brown with gold sparkles

    SleekSleek: A deep, matte brown (perfect for my eyebrows!)

    I am one million percent in love with this palette. The best part is, it’s pretty thin so it’s great for traveling. The range of shades is perfect to achieve any kind of look, whether it be a quick neutral day look or dramatic, sexy eyes. I would say, it’s totally worth it. Like I said, if $36 is still stretching it, wait until theBalm holds another Hautelook event, which is once every couple months, where this palette is $19.99.
