theBalm Nude’tude Palette Review + Swatches + GIVEAWAY!

Eyeshadow palettes are my addiction. I’m always on the hunt to try new brands, color palettes and textures. Lately, I’ve gone crazy over eyeshadow palettes by theBalm Cosmetics. They are high quality, with great pigmentation, at a reasonably price.

One of my favorites is their NUDE’tude palette. A beautiful assortment of neutral colors, with more versatility than some of the other popular neutral palettes.
