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.

Close up of the shades with a flash
Here are the swatches of all the shades and my opinion:
I’ve been really excited about theBalm’s Nude Tude palette, so I was happy to get it to show you all.
This is how the package looks like, it’s very theBalm, retro photo and a cardboard packaging.
There is also a lovely and useful mirror inside. As you may remember, there are two variants of the design inside: naughty and nice. Luckily, I’ve got the naughty one which I absolutely love!
I am a big fan of Too Faced eye shadow palettes, so I was happy to see the brand new palette which is called Matte Eye Shadow Collection and which is exclusive to Sephora so far.
This palette contains nine wearable matte eye shadows, cards with makeup looks suggestions and brush. And this all comes in a beautiful package.
3 x 0.07 oz Eye Shadows in:
- Tufted Suede (soft tan)
- Velveteen Bunny (ivory)
- Fresh Linen (pale pink)
6 x 0.03 oz Eye Shadows in
- Chinchilla (light warm brown)
- Coffee Bean (dark brown)
- Pebbles (gray)
- London Fog (deep blue)
- Vintage Violet (violet mauve)
- Midnight (charcoal gray)
Now this palette looks like a must have and I really hope it will be available not only in the States later. But so far you get in only at Sephora for $36.
I’ve been really impressed by the Hourglass products lately but most of all I’ve been impressed with their eye shadows. They are, without a doubt, one of the best eye shadows that I have ever tried.
I am almost sure that I took the photos of the palette before I’ve started using it but unfortunately I can’t find them anywhere. So I am sorry that my eye shadows are a bit messy, I’ve been using them a lot and I also managed to drop them, which was horrible. But I am very impressed tat they didn’t fall apart completely as most eye shadows would.
First of all take a look at the gorgeous design, you can actually tell that it is a luxurious product. The colour of the package is beautiful plus it has a mirror and a 360° swivel lid. The brush which comes with the palette is not a complete rubbish as most similar brushes are. It can be actually used if you don’t have anything else around. I’ve used it myself and was surprised that it’s not bad at all!
But most important.What about the eye shadows themselves?
Today I would love to tell you about one of my favourite palettes which I’ve been using a lot. And it is Too Faced Natural Eye Palette which is a collection of neutral eye shadows.
Too Faced also has a Smoky and Naked Eyes palettes but I like this one the best and this is how it looks like.
You get 9 neutral eye shadows with different textures, eyeshadow brush and 3 eye charts which give you the idea of how you can use the shadows. Although there are many more ways to do it.
So here are the eye charts and I’ve tried them all and have to say that the final looks are beautiful and, what is important, you can never go wrong with neutral shades.
And this is the close-up of the shadows.
