Aloha World! Now, unlike the title says, I'm not actually moving to Hawaii. Instead, I've got a FOTD for you using all of the contents of this face palette from The Balm!
I debated sharing this new palette with you all in my "new in" post yesterday, but wanted to give it it's own special little place on my blog. I found this palette in Kohls, while I was totally NOT makeup shopping. I walked by it a couple times, as it sat somewhere in the jewelry and skincare, and didn't look like a necklace or anything I'd remotely be interested in. Truth be told I thought it was a package of printed tissues. Upon further investigation I found that what I had discovered was actually a face palette from The BALM. WHAT? I have been drooling through their website but had NO IDEA they sold products in stores.
The first thing I have to comment on is the packaging. It's too cute for words, to be honest. I love things disguised as something they are not (think pens that look like nail polish or erasers that look like food!?!) and the fact that this is a driver's license face palette kind of makes me really happy. Bonus; her name is one of those pun-names... Anita Newcar? HAH. Only thing I don't like? The price! $15.99 each, for four pans of pigment. Yikes.
When you open up the palette you will find highlight, lid and crease/liner eyeshadows, alone with a rosy-pink blush. There is also a large and convenient mirror, perfect for touch-ups on the road. In my FOTD today I have used all four of these pigments so you can get an idea of what just a few colors can do for you.
