I received this palette in the mail yesterday. I was lucky enough to win this from their daily twitter giveaway.
I must say, it only took them a week to get it shipped to me, which to me, is quick considering that's processing and everyday, and it was shipped from the West Coast to me on the East coast.

The Balm
So far, I'm in love with this palette. So, let's go over what it includes.

It has 12 eyeshadows and a brush.The palette also has a nice mirror.
It's also a cardboard palette, with a magnetic lid. I think it's sturdy enough for travel, and it's a nice size as well.
The eyeshadows are all nicely pigmented and buttery.
4 of these are matte, those are Sultry, Sexy, Serious and Sleek. The rest are all shimmer-y and/or glittery.
I didn't have any issues with any of these! They all went on wonderfully, and blended so easily. Fall out hasn't been an issue with these as of yet, and I have tried all of the dark colors so far.

This is my first palette from The Balm, and my first time using their eyeshadows, and I am impressed.
These eyeshadows remind me a lot of Urban Decay eyeshadows, because they're so smooth, pigmented and easy to work with. I'd go so far as to say this may be a nice alternative to the Naked Palette. I don't have one to compare, but I'm perfectly happy with this.

Here are some swatches. These are in natural light, and without primer.

I absolutely love this palette, and I can see myself using this a ton. It retails for $36 at, and it's definitely worth every penny. I haven't tried the brush out yet, but I don't think I'll be using it much. However, if I use it and like it, I'll make sure to let you guys know.

If you want me to, I can try to post some looks using this palette, if you'd like to see that.
Also, let me know when I should start posting Holiday looks. Thanksgiving is this week, so I feel that maybe after that?

Let me know any post suggestions you have!

I almost forgot, but I think I'm going to start doing mini flash giveaways, where I'm going to use a website such as to pick a winner from the comments on a post. That way I can reward people who are actually reading and commenting on my posts, not just the people who are following me just to enter my giveaways.

Don't forget to enter my MAC giveaway! It ends soon. MAC Giveaway!

Thanks for reading my post! I'll have more up soon!
I'm going tomorrow to see Breaking Dawn Part 2, so I'll probably post my FOTD when I get home!
