Review: theBalm Nude'tude Palette

Hi  Beauties! I'm still obsessed with nude eye shadows and have been eyeing theBalm Nude'tude (11.08 g, $36) palette for sometime and I finally have it and have playing with it non stop. Before we go into the review I want to let you all know that I'm having giveaway and you can enter to win some goodies from here.

The packaging is nice and sleek (cardboard), and inside of it there is a shadow/liner brush (which is not on the picture) and a big mirror. Its very travel friendly palette and I took it with me when I went to Turkey. I like the selection on shadows in it and that there is matte and shimmery shadows. I feel like I don't have to take extra matte shadows, when I'm using this palette to create a great makeup looks. 

All together there is 12 shadows, 4 matte and 8 shimmery (not all totally shimmery, but there is some sheen to them). I have to say all the shadows are very pigmented and silky to the touch. I like how well they last and how easy it it to work with them. I can't say enough good things about this palette. I absolutely love it and was using it every day when I was on vacation <3

L to R: Sassy, Stubborn, Selfish, Sophisticated, Sexy, Serious

  • Sassy - is a white shimmery shadow. Its very silky and buttery to the touch and its a great shadows to use in the inner corner of the eye. Brightens everything up ;)
  • Stubborn - is a light pink shadow, with satin finish. I like to wear it all over the lid. Its just a pretty shade <3
  • Selfish - is brownish bronze shadow with satin finish. Its a lovely shadow and goes well together with Stubborn.
  • Sophisticated - is darker brown shade with bit of golden glitter in it. 
  • Sexy - is dark plummy red shadow, with matte finish. I like to do smokey eye with it.
  • Serious - is a black matte shade. I like that this palette includes a black shade. 
L to R: Snobby, Stand-Offish, Sultry, Seductive, Silly, Sleek

  • Snobby - is a golden yellow shadow with shimmer. Its a fun summer shade and I find it looks great when I'm a bit tanned.
  • Stand-Offish - is light pink shadow, with lot of sheen to it. Its my favorite shadow from this palette.
  • Sultry - is a matte brown shadow and its always good to have matte brown shadow in the palette.
  • Seductive - is a bronze shadow, with sheen to it. These kind of bronze shadows are my favorites to wear on summer time. 
  • Silly - is a dark brown shade, with glitter in it. Some reason I don't like this shadow that much, I think its due to the glitter.
  • Sleek - is dark brown matte shadow, which is another favorite. I would have never imaged that I would say it, but its true. I love to smokey it out on my lash line and in the outer V and in the crease. I just love this shade :)

Here is a makeup look I created using shadows from this palette. Hope you guys like it :) For this look I used: Stand-Offish, Seductive, Sultry and Sleek.

I'm loving this palette and if you are some one who loves nudes shadows as much I do, I highly recommend this palette, if you don't own it already.

Thanks for reading! :)
