I received the Balm Nude 'tude palette in the mail a few days ago and it was just love at first sight!
I've been eying this palette for quite sometime now and I finally gave in and I'm ever so happy that I did. The eye shadows are soft and have great color payoff. I have applied a few of the shadows using a primer and a few without and it appears I really do not need the primer.
I really love my neutrals, so this palette was an obvious must for me. I do wish the palette was half shimmer and half matte but I'm not complaining. There are four mattes and 'Silly' is more of a chunky glitter shadow, you will get some fallout with this shade.
The palette comes with a large mirror and a brush. I haven't used the brush that it came with but it is double ended and seems very convenient. The packaging is hard cardboard material and I'm sure most of you are careful- but I just wanted to mention it's not something to just throw in a makeup bag. Overall, I just cannot really say enough about the beautiful pigmented colors and I wish I had bought it sooner. I also love the brands theme!
Here are the swatches in natural light but taken with flash:
