My mum gifted this palette to me after I had surgery and it’s so cute I just had to review it! This is my first The Balm product but I would really like some more…
The palette comes with 9 shades – three matte and six shimmer. The palette has this cute flip-down section which spells the pans out as ‘eat your heart out’ which is sooo sweet and matches the quirky packaging, which is based on a restaurant menu. Luckily you can flip this down to get to the pans easier!
The shades are as follows:
Bruce Shetta – a pinky cream matte
Mac Encheese – a dark lavender matte
Ray Sinbread – a cool-toned muted brown matte
Tate R. Tots – a cool-toned rose-gold shimmer
Rock Road-Icecream – dark lavender shimmer with brown-grey undertones
Chris P. Bacon – a bright burnt orange shimmer
Hal Apeno-Poppers – a light taupe with very slight shimmer (looks matte)
Artie Chokedip – a muted medium blue-grey with slight shimmer (looks matte)
Alfred O’Pasta – a deep blue-grey shimmer
I found the shadows really easy to swatch but quite difficult to blend on the eye. They weren’t very pigmented and required a lot of work, but looked nice in the end. The shimmers were better applied with a finger.
