Hello beauties!

During the Christmas period I bought quite a lot of make up – which I'm taking my time to review (but don't worry, I will at some point!). And one of the items I got is this nice eyeshadow palette from a brand called The Balm.

I always wanted to get my hands on this brand as I've been hearing very nice reviews – and let's be honest, the packaging is amazing and i'm a sucker for nice, cute packaging ;_; So when I found this cute shadow palette in offer I couldn't resist myself.

First of all let's talk about the number of shadows and the variety of colours. It has a total of 12 shadows: 6 matte and 6 shimmer. I have to say I like the colour combination, it's very versatile and it allows you to create both day-to-day and dramatic / night looks. Something to point out is that it comes with a dark green matte & shimmer tone which is not very common and I find quite original and out of the ordinary. Also it comes with a nice mirror, which always comes in very handy!

The look I decided to do was inspired by the Ariana Grande positions album (obviously it didn't came out exactly as I was planning to, but I was quite happy with the final result though). Basically my idea was to create a cut crease using nude tones! The tones that I used were very pigmented, i noticed quite a lot of fall-out when picking the shadow but as I always say – that's not really a problem to me. 
They were easy to blend and build up, which was exactly what I was expecting!

In conclusion I'm very happy with the purchase, the eyeshadow palette has good quality and a variety of original and versatile tones, which allows you to play with it and create nice and beautiful looks!
