The Balm Nude'Tude Eyeshadow Palette; The Round Up

So about a month ago now I started talking to a lovely girl from a facebook group called Sarah who's youtube channel is makeupbysaz and her tutorial's are perfect and she is such a lovely girl, go check out her channel!
 We were discussing doing a collaboration video and we decided to do one with the same eye-shadow palette so we chose the balm's nude tude palette! I actually didn't previously own this eye-shadow palette but had been lusting after it for a while so I went ahead and bought it from

First Set Of Swatches:
Sassy, Snobby, Stubborn & Stand-Offish

This is that typical gorgeous champagne shimmery shadow that seems to be a beauty blogger staple. This shadow would be perfect if the shadow was just a tad bit buttery. I also found that when blending around it, even if you're blending brush just touched it a tid bit the glitter/shimmer would completely dissipate of the top. However; if you apply a bit more or even foil the shadow the shimmer does stay on.

I think I prefer this to stand-offish as this is a pinky version of that. It has a nicer buttery texture too - easy to blend and to work with - I love this eye-shadow. I tried this out on a different day to when I filmed the tutorial and I wished I had that instead.

This shadow looks like a pale gold-y shade in the pan but it is a lot more vibrant when swatched. I think this would be beautiful with a tiny bit placed in the inner corner of the eye to make your eyes pop! This shade is the perfect texture, not too powdery and easy to blend - score.

An extremely frosty white shadow - perfect for highlighting the brow bone and inner corner (just use a tiny amount!) this eye-shadow is extremely pigmented.

Seductive, Sultry, Sophisticated, Selfish

I love this shade, its almost like a darker mac woodwinked! Guarantee will suit any eye colour, skin colour - beautiful. 

This is a good transition shade - almost matte brown. Easy to blend out colours with a fluffy brush.

This is one of those colours that is perfect for amping up your look - without giving it too much drama. The pigmentation is decent although I wish the shimmer would pay off a wee bit more.

A satin taupe dupe? Maybe.. This actually makes a lovely all over lid colour!

From Left to Right;
Serious, Sleek, Silly, Sexy

Perfect heavily pigmented matte black shade, little bit tough but is possible to blend (probably just because of the matte formula) - apart from that they really hit the nail on the head with this shade.

A nice dark brown shade,  good pigmentation, lovely texture - nothing to complain about here. Lovely shadow.

Ooooh this is beautiful! I love the gold shimmer inside this brown shadow - really makes your eyes pop!

My favourite shadow out of the palette - I'm pretty sure I don't own an eyeshadow of this shade - it's like a matte burgundy/maroon kind of colour - will probably reach for this palette just for this shade!

Overall, I really do like this palette - a perfect little travel palette that you can create neutral combinations or full blown smokey ones! 

Here is the round up of the look I created with this palette:
(Yes I'm aware I have a bit of make-up in my hair, plus my roots desperately needed doing at this stage)
