REVIEW // The Balm - Nude Tude Eyeshadow Palette ♥

It seems ever since the popularity of the Urban Decay Naked palettes the world and his wife have been having a pop at creating their own versions. I am fairly new to theBalm but while I was having a browse on Feel Unique I came across some of their products and this eyeshadow palette really stood out to me.

The eyeshadows are homed inside a magnetic cardboard palette which feels really sturdy, I wouldn't worry if I accidentally dropped this or would I have any concerns about carrying it around in my handbag. The packaging is so lovely with a gorgeous vintage feel about it. The palette is held in a card sleeve which mimics all the same detailing as the actual palette itself. The palette also contains a double ended shadow/liner brush and a mirror that runs the length of the palette. I purchased Nude Tude for £26.50 off of Feel Unique which I don't feel is too expensive bearing in mind you get 12 shadows and a double ended brush.

Look how fun this palette is. I love the 1940s pin up vibe it's giving off, it's such a gorgeous addition to anyones make-up bag.

Sassy - highly pigmented frosted white.
Stubborn - pinky peach satin.
Selfish - satin taupe.
Sophisticated - bronze/brown with golden micro-glitters.
Sexy - matte burgundy.
Serious - Matte black.

Snobby - Frosted champagne gold.
Standoffish - frosted peachy/beige.
Sultry - Matte brown (tan).
Seductive - satin bronze.
Silly - deep matte brown with golden and red micro-glitters.
sleek - deep chocolate matte brown.

As you can see from my swatches the eyeshadows are wonderfully pigmented. They are really buttery in consistency which in turn makes them a pleasure to work with, they blend effortlessly leaving behind a gorgeous polished look. After not really hearing much about this palette actually nothing at all, I have been left feeling very impressed and would highly recommend it to my fellow nude lovers out there :)

Do you own this palette or any other products from theBalm? If so I would love to hear your thoughts. comment below or you can find me on Twitter over at @Tiffsbeautyboxx. Thank you for reading lovelies, see you soon.

Lots of love xxx
