the Balm Shady Lady Palette Vol.2 Review, Photos and Swatches

 the Balm Shady Lady Palette Vol. 2 (£38/ $39.50) is one of my favourites!

It comes in a Zebra palette with a nice mirror and nine eye shadows, some of them can be also used as the liners.

You get:

Caught in the Act Courtney , Feisty Felicia,  Insane Jane, Bossy Bobbi, Makeout Mary, Just this Once Jamie , Mischievous Marissa, Tempting Tara, and Devilish Danielle.

Here are the swatches of all the shades and my opinion:

I have to say that I am really pleased with these eye shadows. They are soft and pigmented, with a beautiful and rich colour pay-off. Very blendable  and long-lasting, they don’t crease or fade on me. I also really love the fact that you can use some of the eye shadows as eye liners.

You get a lovely selection of colours, they all are with a metallic finish and two (Caught in the Act Courtney and Feisty Felicia) have some glitter in it, too. Here is the photo which is out of focus, and which shows the glitter properly.

My favourite shades are:

  • Caught in the Act Courtney – beautiful dark brown with golden shimmer
  • Insane Jane – platinum taupe (is there such a shade or did I make that out?)
  • Makeout Mary – gorgeous golden lime green
  • Mischievous Marissa – warm peach

And here is the swatch of the eye shadows that can be used as the eye liners. Pretty, right?

These eye shadows are formulated without: Parabens, Sulfates, Synthetic Fragrances, Synthetic Dyes, Phthalates, GMOs, and Triclosan.

In my opinion, this is an amazing palette and is totally worth getting it! This is a LE, so get it now if you want before it’s sold out. There are also palettes Vol. 1 and Vol. 3 I really wish I could find Vol. 1 as it is gorgeous!

You can buy it from here.

    I thought I would comment because I was looking for swatches of all their palettes because for one day only on Friday, they’re having a 3 for 1 sale so you get all three palettes for the price of one. I really like your swatches, thanks for posting!
