Is this not the coolest, brightest, most fun palette you ever did lay your eyes upon? I am utterly in love with this Balm Jovi Rockstar Palette from theBalm. Out of all of my makeup products, this is the most eye-catching. Just looking at it cheers me up. I have most of my palettes in a drawer, but this one just has to stay out on my dresser because it makes me smile just to see it there in all of it's colourful glory! (Hence all the photos in this post, I just adore the look of this palette!) My very first theBalm product, and one which has definitely got me hooked.

theBalm is a brand I hear a lot about but mainly from watching some of my favourite American and Canadian beauty gurus over on YouTube. I rarely see them mentioned by British beauty gurus on YouTube nor do I ever really see them on the blogs I read. So I used to believe that theBalm was actually impossible to find here in the UK. Oh how I was wrong. One of my favourite websites for finding hard-to-find-in-the-UK-products, Beauty Chamber, stocks theBalm!!

The Balm Jovi Rockstar Palette is the perfect palette for an every day look, or a night time look. It has eye-shadows, a highlighter, a blusher and two lip colours. It's compact, very slim and comes with a huge mirror, too! There is a seperate flap which covers the lip colours, to keep them protected when you aren't using them, and the top flap has a magnetic placement which keeps the palette shut and damage free. theBalm products are talc and paraben free and it's a glamorous palette for any one of any age. It's just a super mood-lifting and amazing quality palette with all the variety you could ever want in a palette!

There are 12 eye-shadows in this palette. Four are metallic shimmer shades, four are matte and four are shimmer shades. Each has a dreamy formulation which applies effortlessly to the lid, blends beautifully and lasts all day long. And I mean, all day long. I adore the variety of shades and think they are perfect for not only any time of day or night but also for any time of year. The shades are versatile to create looks the entire year round! I've not experienced any fallout when using them. I am really impressed with both the formula and the pigmentation and I definitely want to get my hands on some more of theBalm eye-shadow palettes as I think they are fantastic quality!

The highlighter and blusher have the same beautiful formula and pigmentation of the eye-shadows and I adore the highlighter for highlighting my cheekbones and also my brow bone. The blush is one I think will be better in the warmer months as for Autumn, it's quite pale. But it's also perfect for a minimal makeup daytime look! The blusher and highlighter are both huge as well and I know they will last a long time! Another plus to this palette!

I love that all the shades in the palette are named after bands with a play on names. Including some of my favourite bands. Metal-ica for Metallica, Iron Maid-in for Iron Maiden and Blink 1982 for Blink 182! The very bottom flap of the palette which covers the lip shades also has eye-shadow combination ideas which I think is fab! It's great for if you are new to combining more than one shade on the eye or if you just want some ideas of how to use the colours together! You can see a huge amount of detail has gone in to the presentation of this palette and it definitely takes 1st place as my most beautiful and lovely palette! 

The lip shades are just as impressive. Milly is a very pale nude shade which doesn't hold much pigmentation at all but it's great to finish off a smokey eye look. Vanilly on the other hand is a super pigmented vivid red shade. Both feel silky soft on my lips and have a beautiful glossy finish.

If you hadn't already gathered, I am in love with this palette. I think it is utterly fantastic and of amazing quality! You can find it over on the Beauty Chamber website, here, and it costs an amazingly reasonable £34. Add this to your Christmas wish lists girls - Because this palette is quite possibly the best palette I have in my collection, and you all need it in your collection!
