theBalm Hawaii Driver License Face Palette

A picture of the theBalm Hawaii Driver License Face Palette
Over the past few weeks I have really loved quick and easy looks. I don’t have the time to sit and indulge in applying makeup like I used to, and sometimes there’s nothing better than a simple look with products applied in the right way to enhance your features, instead of going overboard with a million products.

I'm such a big fan of theBalm, whose products are as pigmented and long-lasting as any of the high-end favourites in my stash, with amazing packaging to boot! I've recently been completely besotted with the theBalm Hawaii Driver License Face Palette* £9.87, which covers eyes and cheeks in one handy compact palette. Designed to look like a driver’s license for ‘Anita Newcar’, it’s incredibly slim with a sturdy magnetic close and even has a pretty big mirror, making makeup on the go a breeze.

The cheek products include a blush shade and a highlighter shade, which can also double up as a shadow. The blush is a delightful cool toned pink with blue undertones that applied subtly gives a nice flush to the cheeks, but with a bit more oomph it can be built up for quite the pop of colour. The highlight shade is one of the paler highlight shades I've tried, but it works really well on both my brow bone and cheekbones for a subtle highlight, whilst also being really lovely for in the inner corner.

The two shadows are spot-on for this time of year. The lighter of the two is a stunning taupe with shimmer finish that I adore for a wash of colour over the lid, whilst the darker shade is a deep aubergine with matte finish that doubles up as a liner, and compliments a look well when blended through the crease.

All shades are incredibly pigmented, just like all theBalm products, and the longevity is fantastic – no budging or smudging with the shadows, even when using as a liner. The blush is a little more daring than I usually go for in the colder months, but a shade I know I’ll be getting even more use out of once summer comes around. Compared to the highly coveted theBalm highlighters, the highlight shade in Hawaii Driver License is very subtle and a perfect go-to highlight for everyday looks. Basically, I’m obsessed.

If you’re looking for a palette which covers eyes and cheeks in one, give this one a try – you might even fall in love with it as much as me!
