[REVIEW and SWATCH] The Balm Nude Tude Eyeshadow Palette (Multifunction)

I went through my National Examination!
The exam was waaaay harder from what we (me and my classmates) expected and I'm sure that the government increase the exam's difficulty standard. However, at last I did my best with God and didn't cheat on the test. I hope I pass with nice scores. :'D

Well anyway *cough* sorry for telling story pff :p
Let's move onto the review of this well-known The Balm Nude Tude Eyeshadow Palette!
Thank you Shoppinglust who kindly gave this palette to me ^~^
It was such a great Valentine Day to get this fabulous palette :'D

the colors are EXACTLY the same with the ads above. Might be a bit darker in real life, depending on the lighting 

This palette contains 12 beautiful shades of eyeshadows/liners like in the swatches below :
Don't you love the sexy design? :D
The packaging has strong magnet in it so it won't open without you knowing. :D
I took the picture above under flash. You can see the glitters on "Silly" and "Sophisticated" right?^^

Top row :
Sassy a semi-matte milky white eyeshadow. Contains very subtle shimmers. I love to use it on my waterline. When applied, like metalic white color, slightly has a hint of silver in it if you look closely.
Stubborn a semi-matte rosy pink eyeshadow.
Selfish a bit shimmery caramel brown
Sophisticated Shimmery dark coffee color with subtle gold glitters
Sexy Matte dark maroon color
Serious A deep matte black. (never used this even once thou before this review xD)

Bottom row :
Snobby Shimmery apricot color. When applied, looks like rose gold. Very beautiful color, can be used as highlighter too.
Stand-offish Very shimmery soft pink color.
Sultry Matte chocolate color
Seductive Shimmery coffee color
Silly Very dark copper (shimmery) that has 3 colors of subtle glitters in it. I think they are white, red, and gold glitters? Very unique! 
Sleek Matte and very dark brown

the back of packaging
And this is the brush :

The brush never falls--so far--and a high quality brush :D
The material of the hairs are like synthetic plastic that is very easy to clean. So don't worry if you want to use light color after using the brush with dark color. The particles of the eyeshadow are very easy to clean from the brush.^^
The left one is for blending the eyeshadow and the right one is like an angled-eyeliner brush. So we can use any shade as eyeliner with this brush. ^^

Pros :

  • Pigmented, high quality shadow even without eye primer
  • Comes with high quality eyeshadow and eyeliner brush
  • Nice and travel friendly packaging, also nice design
  • Comes with a mirror
  • Beautiful combination of shades
  • Very multifunctional. Can be used as eyeshadow, eyeliner or highlighter
  • Long lasting eye makeup. (I was out in humid day more than 4 hours and it's still there <3)
  • Not powdery
  • Creamy texture

Neutral :

  • Expiry date after opening : 12 months 

Cons :

  • Quiet expensive for me, here in Indonesia it is sold for about IDR 430.000? (around $43)

Buy? Yes! If my personal economic condition is stable again already xD I really fall in love how this product can be a highlighter, eyeshadow and eyeliner at once. I don't need to buy 2 eyeliners if I want black and brown eyeliner again. xD The color "SILLY", is very unique and capture my heart (lol!) because I've never seen such unique shade with glitters before. However, I think it's expensive for me. :( The shadows are only 11.08 gram in total and I can only use it in range 12 months. :( At last, I know now why lots of people are craving for this palette! The quality is sooo good compared to some other palettes. :D

That's all for today^^
Thank you for reading and God bless <3

ps : I will update the review if I feel something different / a change on me because of the product, whether it is positive or negative. So stay tune :D
And also, result in every person may vary because everyone has their own skin types :)

  9. This palette is really, really beautiful! *u* I want, in my country is for sale! but these palettes last long, should not overcome in 12 months, I would use after that time and believe me that many girls do it too, because otherwise would not make sense to spend so much money :/ I have Urban Decay Naked2 Palette and I think it has been more than 12 months, is still in good condition and still using it :)

    1. yeah i agree. I think i'll still use this xD
