    {Review} Nude Tude Eyeshadow Palette from The Balm

    Good day my lovelies! I hope you are all having a good week and we are downhill to the weekend. Today I’m reviewing something from my Birthday Haul. The Nude Tude Eyeshadow Palette from The Balm. I really love all the shades from this palette and it shot to my top 5 palette list after just one time of use.

    About The Nude Tude Eyeshadow Palette

    This amazing palette consists of 12 beautiful shadows that make wearing nudes sexy! These satiny smooth colors can be applied naturally or beautifully layered. The wide range gives you light highlighters as well as brazen bold shades that work to add definition and emphasis to your lids. This is also one of The Balm’s best sellers I can see why.

    Packaging

    The palette is made from a really sturdy thick cardboard with a magnet that holds the lid closed. It comes inside a sleeve and just adds a little something extra and protects the palette from scratches. When you open the palette you are greeted with a really tongue in the cheek illustration that is really clever play on the palette’s name. The palette also houses a really nicely sized mirror.

    Formula & Swatches

    The Nude Tude eyeshadow shades are really soft and transfers easily from the palette to your brush or finger. Some of the shades has a bit of a kick up but nothing too insane. I found the shades easy to blend and the colour selection is perfect for a natural to a nude smokey look. The balance of colours and shade types is really well thought out. I also like the grouping of the shades.

    Eyeshadow Look

    I created this gorgeous look using the Nude Tude Eyeshadow Palette. I used the put a lid on it eyeshadow primer to prime my lids. The look lasted until I decided to remove the makeup! The lighter shades really work well as an inner corner and brow bone highlight.
