The Balm Meet Matt(e) Shmaker Eyeshadow Palette
The latest from The Balm is the Meet Matt(e) Shmaker Eyeshadow Palette. The Balm Nude Tude Palette was one of my first ever palettes so I was very excited when they sent this along! I've always been a fan of their shadow formula, it's nicely pigmented but not over the top making it easy to work with. The mattes especially blend like a dream. See it in action on my YouTube channel in my most recent Get Ready with Me video

The Balm Meet Matte Shmaker Palette features 12 shadows, 6 matte and 6 shimmers that are "perfectly paired". I really do enjoy the shade range, it's unique but doesn't feel unapproachable. Very easy to achieve an all matte look, something more simple and daytime or you can also create a really beautiful smokier look. I find the shimmery shades aren't a "BAM" metallic formula that we have become accustomed to, but that's okay with me. It's nice to have options and variety, not everyone wants something so bright and shiny on their eyes. If you'd like to amp up the color use a sticky base, wet your brush or go in with your fingers to build pigment.

This palette retails for $29.50 USD which is definitely on the more affordable side of high end palettes for sure. Getting your hands on it in Canada can be tricky, but Rexall, London Drugs and Nail Polish Canada all sell The Balm, not sure if the palette has launched there yet. You can order directly from The Balm but shipping can be quite pricey. I also love that the packaging is not super bulky but as always, it's super cute!

Overall, I'm really enjoying this palette. I think if the colours were speaking to you and you were debating it, go for it!
