theBalm Meet Matt(e) Nude!


I love theBalm. No seriously, I do. Every single product from theBalm that I have tried, I have fallen utterly in makeup love with. I think their products are amazing quality, and I just wish they were would branch out into the UK so I could try every last one! Thankfully, there is a beauty website here in the UK which stocks theBalm, and that is Beauty Chamber! 


Back at the beginning of the year I bought the theBalm Meet Matt(e) palette, which I will be reviewing separately soon. The latest palette to come from theBalm is the Meet Matt(e) Nude palette. Twice the size, with a huge variety of shades, the entire palette is nude. I think this palette is a huge contender for the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette! When the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette came out, many people felt it didn't have a big enough shade range. Although it is a favourite everyday palette for me, there is no denying that theBalm Meet Matt(e) Nude palette ticks all the boxes the Naked Basics doesn't. With nine huge shades, at least double in size of those in the Naked Basics palette, the shade ranges in this palette are so vast, it could quite possibly work as the only palette you could ever need! 


What I love about theBalm shadows is the fact that they are just as good quality wise as Urban Decay. I find them so comparable, and considering Urban Decay is my favourite for shadows, that's saying something! The shades are soft, easy to blend, without any troublesome fallout. They are also super long lasting, easily lasting a whole day out. I find the shade range in this palette so vast you could use it for creating any look you could imagine, you can literally team any of the shades together to create anything from a subtle daytime look, to a more sophisticated evening eye or even a powerful and seductive nighttime eye. It's such a versatile palette and would make a great addition to any makeup collection! 


You can find theBalm Meet Matt(e) Nude palette on the Beauty Chamber website here and it costs £34. Will you be adding this palette to your collection?

    3. Unfortunately as theBalm is an American brand, you can't get theBalm on the UK high-street! So I stick to Beauty Chamber :) xo

    1. It works out at just £3.78 a shade, so I think it's pretty reasonably priced and it's a huge palette! :) xo

  3. Gosh the picture reminds me of arg from essex so much for some reason, these eyeshadows look fantastic but I still can't justify that price! :(

    1. It's actually quite a reasonable price when you think that a MAC shadow is £10+ for one single shadow. Palettes are often a far more cost-effective way of expanding your eyeshadow collection :) xo
