Today I'll be reviewing The Balm Nude Tude Palette.
This palette is thin and has a magnetic closure and a mirror on the inside lid. For reference it's about the size of Lorac's Pro Palettes. I love the cute artwork.
This palette contains 12 shadows in a mix of mattes, shimmers, and the colors are mostly neutral.
|L-R: Sassy, Stubborn, Selfish, Sophisticated, Sexy, Serious|
|L-R: Snobby, Stand-Offish, Sultry, Seductive, Silly, Sleek|
The quality of the shadows are pretty good and all of the glittery shades have great pigmentation. Stand-Offish is gorgeous and is super pigmented on the eyes. The other shadows are good and buttery but do have some fallout if you don't tap off the excess on your brush before applying it to your eyes.
I will admit, I don't often reach for this palette because I have most of these shades in other palettes. Also, I wish that this palette contained one or two matte lighter colors to wear on the browbone. In fact, there really isn't a browbone color in the entire palette unless you want to use the stark white shade (Sassy) or shimmery yellow (Snobby).
Overall, I would say that The Balm Nude Tude Palette is more of a "nice to have" and not really a "must-have". This palette retails for $36 and can be purchased on The Balm site and at Kohl's. Also, a few times a year The Balm has a flash sale on Hautelook where everything is 50% off. You can sign up for Hautelook and get their email notifications of all their flash sales HERE.
Do you have this palette? What do you think of it?
