theBalm Nude'tude Eyeshadow Palette

If there's been one neutral shadow palette needed to complete my collection (for now), it's been theBalm's Nude'tude offering, and after months of lusting, it's finally slotted in-between the likes of my UD NAKED Palette, Charlotte Tilbury's The Dolce Vita and the rest. It's stepped in at the perfect time, whilst it's set to be a good all-rounder, something about it is just screaming autumn at me and for making up my daily face, I can say I haven't really put it down since picking it up. You're going to want to make note of this one - allow me to fill you in... 

Twelve shades make up the selection, housed in a sturdy cardboard compact complete with a full-sized mirror, double-ended shadow/liner brush and magnetic fastening. From whites and nudes to pinks and bronzed hues, each 'S'-worded shade gives the palette its name, from top and bottom, left to right; Sassy is a frosted, silvery white, the kind that works perfectly as an inner corner eye highlight to brighten, Snobby is a peachy gold and shimmery in finish which would also work well to add a little light to the eyes, Stubborn comes as a shimmery, rose pink, and Stand-offish a more golden-toned, shimmer laced pink, an UD 'Sin' sort of shade. Selfish is a shimmer, taupe-brown and Sultry is a matte, cool-toned light chocolate, the best kind of through-the-crease shade. Sophisticated is a dark brown with golden shimmer running through, Seductive a shimmery, golden bronze and Sexy, a matte, rust red-brown. Silly is a deep chocolate with golden flecks, Serious a matte black and Sleek a matte dark brown, all liner-like colours that add a level of definition. Texture wise, they're satin smooth and come with no fall-out, apply and blend in beautifully without smearing or fading after hours of wear, and it's so versatile, that that could be both day, night, casual or dressy - basically, nothing but good things come from this.

If you'd like to see this palette in action, you can view me using it here - simply one of the many combos that I've mustered up from it. Ringing in at around £30 here, it ticks both boxes for quality and quantity, so neutral shadow lovers listen up, this is one worth welcoming to that compact collection...
