TheBalm Meet Matte(e) Nude Eyeshadow Palette - Swatched
I heard great things about this palette before seeing it come up on Hautelook for half price about a year or so ago. The palette normally retails for $42, but if you are interested I would wait for one of Thebalm's 50% off sales or for it to return to Hautelook, which it frequently does. Considering that so many eyeshadow palettes either lack matte shades all together or they are limited, I thought this was a good way to get into wearing matte shadows. This is an especially good value at $21 when you get it for half off. I find that the colors show up well on me without needing to use a white or beige base. I can barely stand using an eyeshadow primer, so I don't ever see myself adding another base on top of my primer to get another color to show up.
I sometimes feel like Matt Rosen and Matt Garcia are difficult to blend. However, I consider myself a beginner at eyeshadow, so I'm not entirely sure whether the problem is the colors or the brush I'm using, or my overall technique.
If you have this palette, how do you feel it performs for you? Let me know in the comment section below.
