MY TAKE ON THEBALM SMOKE BALM EYE SHADOW PALETTE
Packaging: The 3 eyeshadows come in a carton magnetic case characteristic of TheBalm pressed products. It is tiny, comes with a mirror and is travel friendly. No applicator is provided.
Texture: The eyeshadows are very soft and blend well with the skin. They adhere properly to the lids and there is minimal or no fallout.
Shade: There are 2 shades in the palette for creating a smokey eye look and a highlighter for highlighting the brow bones and inner corner of the eyes. The darkest shade is black with blue undertones and subtle shimmer while the other shade is matte grey. The highlighter is champagne in colour with subtle shimmer just like the Mary Lou Manizer.
How I use and staying power: I love smokey eye look and have tried it a lot of times earlier too. There are 2 ways to create a smokey eye- by creating a gradient shade from one corner of the eye to the other and another way is to create a dark to light gradient from lids to brows. I prefer the latter since it is easy to create and looks stunning. You can simply draw a broad and bold eyeliner using the darkest shade and add another layer on top using the light shade which is grey. Simply blend the 2 layers together using a brush and use the highlighter to highlight the brow bone and inner corners of your eyes- You are done!
The eye shadows have great pigmentation, Have negligible fallout and stay literally all day long without fading. Blending the eyeshadows is easy since they have a powder texture that mix well with each other and blend flawlessly with the skin. The shimmer in darkest shade is subtle and adds glow to your lids. I love the way how TheBalm has created this palette with 2 shades that are perfect for making a smokey eye look. Overall, a great palette especially for beginners who can now easily create smokey eye looks!
