In my April beauty favourites I promised to swatch theBalm’s Meet Matt(e) Trimony Matte Eyeshadow Palette. I actually really like theBalm eye shadows (nude Tude and Shady Lady Palette Vol.2 , and this one was not an exception.
My friend was actually clearing out her collection, and passed this onto me. While not all shades look good on my complexion, some of them I adore, and use a lot. My personal favourites are: Matt Rossi (cool toned taupe) and Matt Kumar (warm-toned reddish brown).
As it is always with theBalm eye shadows they are very smooth and soft, their mattes are some of the best on the market, they are not at all chalky or dusty, you can see how pigmented they are, too, on the swatches below. Gorgeous, right?
One more thing which I really like is a huge mirror which is brilliant for travelling (I’ve lost my favourite middle-sized mirror from shu uemura).
I would definitely recommend these matte eye shadows, there are several different colour variations to choose from, so there is something for everyone. And I kind of want the other palettes, not like I need them…
