Nude' tude Palette

I thought Urban Decay were the king of pigmented eye shadows but i have to say the Balm are really giving them a run for their money and on top of that their packaging is just incredible. I decided i wanted a new eye shadow palette because, come on a girl can never have too many!

So if you follow me on twitter you will have seen i was torn between this one and the Too Faced Chocolate bon bon palette. Although i can imagine that one also had great eye shadows and super cute packaging this palette is everything i wanted and more, so in the end I decided on this Nude' tude Palette. I love theBalm they are such a fun brand and i love how all their products are themed and have really cool names.
The shades in this palette are just gorgeous, i mean look at the range they have!
And they shade names are just so cute all of them are beginning with S so they are all related. There isnt much more you need in a palette. I thought instead of just swatching them i would show you some eye looks i put together just using just the shades in this palette and underneath them ill explain what shade i used on what part of my eye.

LOOK 1- Brown Smokey Eye

I covered my lid with Sultry, then used the shade Sleek on the outer corner of my eye and blended it into the crease. On my inner corner of my eye i used Seductive then on the centre i used Silly to give the look even more brown layers. 

LOOK 2 Deep Pink and Gold Shimmer

I covered my lid with Stubborn, then put Sexy on my outer corner and again blended into my crease. For that pinky golden shimmer i added Stand- Offish to my lid and placed it lightly so to get that full coverage and high pigmentation out of the shadow. Then i took a liner brush and took the shade Serious across my lash line to create a liner effect. To highlight the inner corner of my eyes and my brow bone i used the white shade Sassy. 

Overall Thoughts
I love this palette so much, its got such an incredible range of shades in and as you can see they are so pigmented so a little goes along way. This palette will become one that i use every day and i would highly recommend it to anyone who is on the look out for a new palette that is really high quality
