the BALM -- SHADY LADY PALETTES


I always see this brand at Sephora, hiding in one corner. The counter is not as huge as NARS or Urban Decay, but the products look lovely and appealing. The packaging is sleek and 'Different'. I have only used one product from this brand. The blush in 'HOT MAMA'. The experience has been good so far.


Shady Lady eyeshadow palette

The eye shadow palettes look amazingly beautiful They are pigmented, as i have swatched them many times, but they are sparkly and shimmery. I shy away from such glittery stuff, but these are so beautiful and pigmented!! I would compare them to Galapagos from NARS...
I was chating with Xerin from Xinarox and even she said she liked it. Well, we all know she can create wonders with any kind of color and textures...lol!!

Tucked inside a leopard print package, you will find nine gorgeous shades:

Caught in the Act Courtney (rich brown with gold sparkle)
Shameless Shana (tahitian bronze)
Luscious Lani (icy pink champagne)
Jealous Jordana (rich shimmering green)
Risque Renee (dark navy blue sheen)
Curvy Cami (plum shimmer with gold flecks)
Jet-Setting Jennifer (pale gold shimmer)
All About Alex (olive shimmer)
Easy Wheezie (gunmetal gray shimmer)

These shadows can be used both as an eye shadow and an eye liner.


The Balm Shady Lady palette (Vol 2)

This is another new one and it has a cool packaging too. First one was Leopard print and this one is Zebra print.
The colors in this one are:

Sexy stacy
Feisty Felicia
Insane jane
Bossy Bobbi
Makeout mary
Just this once jamie
Mischievious Marissa
Tempting Tara
Devilish Danielle

Nine shades, just for approximately $40...Not bad at all!! That is just $4 a shadow!
have any one of you tried these palettes?? what do you think?
Please drop in some lines and share your thoughts on this cool stuff....

  3. Hi there,
    I have been using the volume one palette for several months and I absolutely love it. In terms of the texture of the eyeshadows, they are a bit on the soft side compared to mac eyeshadows, but I really don’t mind that. The colours I use most are Caught in the Act Courtney, Shameless Shana, Luscious Lani, and Jet-setting Jennifer. I love all of the other colours as well, but since I mostly use neutrals, those are the ones I use the most. I use them over a paint pot, and they literally last all day on my eyelids. I don’t mind the shimmer since I use matte eyeshadows in conjunction with these ones when creating a look. I love the colour selection in this palette compared to other palettes I have come across. All in all, I highly recommend this palette.
