SWATCHES: theBalm "Nude 'Tude Palette"

I purchased from theBalm the Nude 'Tude Palette for 50% off retail price for only $18 when they had their new website promotional deal.

I really wanted a nice neutral and nude color palette similar to Urban Decay's Naked palettes, and I saw that this was on sale, so I thought that it'll be a good purchase.

The palette comes in a box that you just need to slip out.

There are two styles of packaging: "Naughty" or "Nice." You can probably tell that I got the "Naughty" packaging. All the colors on both palettes are the same, but the packaging is different. The "Nice" was out of stock, so "Naughty" it was!


Surprisingly these are very small shadow tins or pots or whatever you want to call them, but I do love the colors!

Swatches with light on: Sassy, Stubborn, Selfish, Sophisticated, Sexy, Serious, Snobby, Stand-offish, Sultry, Seductive Silly, Sleek

Swatches in a darker/white setting

Swatches in a darker/yellow setting: Sassy, Stubborn, Selfish, Sophisticated, Sexy, Serious, Snobby, Stand-offish, Sultry, Seductive Silly, Sleek

These shadows are very pigmented, and are very pretty. I don't think they're necessarily worth $36 regular price especially with too much packaging and too little product, but the colors are fantastic and of great quality. The palette comes with a brush which I think is cheap, but at least it came with some kind of brush!

If you do decide to purchase this palette, I recommend purchasing it at Nordstrom since they have free shipping and returns, whereas you'll have to pay at least $6 or so for shipping at theBalm.
