Ode To The Neutral Eye...
|The Balm Meet Matt(e) Nude Eyeshadow Palette|
Hello lover... was my first thought when running across this palette recently...matte and neutral...yes please! I found this bad boy on Hautelook.com last month. This palette usually retails for $42, but I got this handsome man for $20 which makes the deal that much sweeter.
I have used this palette in a couple of my Makeup Daily posts, and its quickly becoming a staple item in my collection. I've worn it completely on its own and in addition to some of my favorite eye looks and either way, I adore it.
The texture of these shadows is amazing...rich, buttery, and as pigmented as you can get...and the best part...there is almost no fall out to mention...which is a problem I've encountered with many matte shadow formulations...high end or drugstore.
