theBalm NUDE’tude Palette- Swatches, Review

A few weeks ago I got this palette in the mail, and based on the name and exterior packaging, I just assumed it would be a neutral-colored palette similar in style to Urban Decay’s Naked Palette. While, yes, it is a neutral palette, what I wasn’t expecting was the risqué inside packaging.. that was definitely a surprise!

So you can see, the girls inside were not expected :) I guess that is sort of the norm with theBalm though, to have a bit of an unexpected twist with their products! Overall this is a really pretty well-rounded neutral palette. The packaging is practical and super thin, and has a nice sized mirror so it would work well to travel with or keep in a purse for touchups. I like that it isn’t overwhelmingly shimmery but has a nice balance of shimmer and matte.

This palette is available for $36 on theBalm’s website, and can be purchased “naughty”, with the girls, or “nice” without the girls.

    I really like that they offer it without the girls, the colors are really nice, and I would buy it, but with my little brother, who gets into my things, the girls wouldnt be a good option, so I definatley appricate that they have it without them. It was a cute idea anyways though! ;)

    Haha! I just got my Naughty version yesterday! I bought it during their Black Friday 40% off sale.

    I just ADORE the packaging! My favorite shades are Stand-offish, Selfish, and Sexy.

    The palette is definitely on the warmer side, whereas UD’s Naked palette is more cool-toned.

    I got the “nice” version during the black Friday sale for 40% off. I really like the palette and definitely think it was worth the money!

    Haha I actually love this! I would definitely get it naughty, that’s half the fun! Is The Balm available at Sephora, by chance?

    @aforapple: FIRST thing I noticed, (other than the fact that they were naked). I totally would love some color in the palette, since it seems flattering for ALL skin tones. but eh, what are you gonna do. :P

    I was really surprised by the “brush” that’s included in this set. Granted, it’s significantly cheaper than the naked palette, but they could have at least thrown in a useful brush.
