Those who know The Balm products couldn't possibly pass by this palette. I’m ready to sing praises to The Balm not only for the great quality they offer but also for the fact that they are paraben and cruelty free. This is very important to me.
The design of this palette is like any other brand’s product. The palette is run in the pin-up style. The palette is made of a good quality thick carton. The case the palette was in has the same printing as the palette itself.
When you open the palette you can see 6 naked retro-divas and 12 refill pans that are censorship covers.
The palette closes with a magnet. Inside of it there’s a mirror and a brush. I liked the brush, but since I have too many of the same shaped brushes, I gave this one to my mum. She uses it to fill in her brows. With the Nude Tude palette you can do a daily make-up look, as well as make-up for an evening night out. The colors are versatile and will flatter any eye color. In the palette there are 4 matte colors, the rest are shimmery. I like the texture of shimmers more, as they are pleasant to the touch and have a beautiful finish. No cheap glitters, only a noble creamy cast.
The eyeshadows are easy to blend. They are also buildable in formula. Shimmers can be applied over mattes and vice versa. They don’t crease during the day, though SEXY, SLEEK and SERIOUS can crease by the end of the day. Some colors are dry and can be a tad dusty but I don’t find it an issue.
Let’s look at each color:
Sassy - white satin color with cool undertones (can be used as a highlighter)
Snobby - satin pale golden color with warm undertones (also can go as a highlighter)
Stubborn - satin soft pink color
Stand-offish - shimmer pinky-peachy color
Selfish - shimmer taupe color
Sultry - matte brown
Sophisticated - satin dark brown color
Seductive - shimmer brazen
Sexy - matte plum color that looks gorgeous on the green eyes
Silly - shimmer chocolate
Serious - matte black color
Sleek - matte dark gray-brown color
Recommend? Yes of course!
