InTruBeauty: the Balm NUDE'tude

the Balm NUDE'tude

I scored this little beauty on Hautelook and got a great price on this. It is about the same size as the Urban Decay Naked Palette. I believe I paid around $15-20, but I can't quite remember. I will be posting on my other the Balm palettes too as I am now only missing the Balm & the Beautiful to round out my collection. So you can see, I really love the Balm and their products! Their eyeshadows are highly pigmented and one of the most creamy of all the shadows I've tried. 

$36 retail,

I love the Feeling Naughty one design more, but I've been searching for this for so long at a cheaper price, that I just ordered it! So, I guess I'm Feeling Nice :) The same shadows are in both palettes, just one has the pin up design. 
Nice range of shimmery and matte. About 1/2 and 1/2

Stand-offish all over lid
Stubborn above the crease/ bring up to the brow as a highlight if you want
Schizo in outer V

Silly lining the upper and lower lash line on top of black eyeliner

I really like the color selection in this palette and the versatility. You can create a very natural neutral look or you can play around to create a more dramatic smokey look. 

Other products: 
Face: MAD Skincare tinted sunscreen
NARS liquid illuminator in Orgasm topped with powder Orgasm blush 
Lips: Revlon in Mauve 
Black eyeliner
Tarte concealer

I'm loving this Nude palette! There are many others out there including ones by Too Faced, Physician's Formula (see here),NYX and of course Urban Decay Naked and Naked 2. Which one is your favorite?

Yours in Beauty and Nudes,
