Wow. Wasn't that a mouth-full? Sorry that I've been MIA for the past couple of days but school work has taken its toll on me and now it's officially the holidays! Can't wait for the fun times to begin! Now straight to the review!
I have been wanting to try out theBalm products for the longest time ever since I saw their Cast Your Shadow Face Palette (Muppets Collection), I knew I had to try some stuff out. I was window shopping in one of Australia's leading department stores, David Jones and I saw a theBalm stand and I freaked! I was there for probably half an hour before I realised there was a promotion: I would receive the Balmbini palette FOR FREE if I purchase something over $27.95.
First of all, I need to express how much I love the packaging. They are just so eye-catching and beautiful. Secondly, I have to say that this was quite a good powder but I probably won't purchase it again. It does everything it says: it removes shine while mattifying the face. It is translucent so it would suit a lot of skin tones. I just don't think it was worth $27.95 and I personally prefer my Rimmel Stay Matte Powder but I'll definitely finish it regardless.
Balmbini Volume 2 Palette
I wanted to try this palette out as soon as I received it since I've heard a lot of great things and also IT'S FREE. The palette had everything I wanted in a palette. It consisted of:
- matte black shadow/liner
- pearlescent beige highlighter/shadow
- orangey-coppery shadow
- toned down teal shadow with silver shimmer
- medium-toned purple with silver shimmer
- bright pinky-red lip/cheek cream
- pinky-nude lip gloss
Overall, I would say that theBalm is not just a brand of good packaging. They have great products on offer and I can't wait to try out more. If you live in Australia, you should definitely head over to David Jones and check out this promotion. I think it is still going on now, and even if it isn't, you should still check it out regardless!
Which products from theBalm would you request for me to try out? Hope you had a lovely day. x
