I hope to put together a fun giveaway as a thank you to you all :-) Not sure when I can do it, I am going to be doing a lot of traveling in September, but hopefully before too long. So be on the lookout for that. :-)
Love you all!
I purchased the products with my personal funds.
About The Balm's Nude 'Tude Eyeshadow Palette
Retail Price: $36
This amazing palette consists of 12 beautiful shadows that make wearing nudes sexy! These satiny smooth colors can be applied naturally, i.e. “let me slip into something more comfortable” or beautifully layered.
The wide range gives you light highlighters as well as brazen bold shades that work to add definition and emphasis to your lids. Nude`tude allows you to dramatically dress up your eyes—if nothing else!
There are 2 different types of palettes you can get: the 'Naughty' or the 'Nice' palette. BOTH VERSIONS OF THE NUDE`TUDE PALETTE CONTAIN THE SAME EYESHADOW COLORS.
First Impression & Packaging...
First off, let me start by saying that I purchased the 'Nice' version of this palette. :-) The neutral colors in this palette really attracted me, as did the pretty shimmery finish of the shadows. Not all of the shadows are full of shimmer, but I'll get into that in a minute. The palette itself is beautifully packaged and has a magnetic closure. I love the look of it!
All of the shadows are really smooth and have nice pigmentation. As you can see from my swatches (and these swatches are without any primer underneath them), they are pretty pigmented. With a primer underneath, these colors really pop and show up well on your eyelid.
I like that all of the colors are natural -- hence the name of the palette, Nude'tude (As if that's not obvious, Katie, really...) Personally, while I love adding shimmer or color to my look, I still stay in the safety of the more natural colors like the pinks, browns, and greens. Nude'tude gives me all those colors in beautiful pigmentation, making this aspect a major like for me.

While I am glad that I own this palette, I don't think I would consider it a 'must have' to add to your collection. If you want a palette with neutral colors and don't want to spend $50+ on any of the Naked, then I would definitely recommend you purchase this palette instead. But if you already have one of those palettes -- or have a bunch of smaller neutral palettes from the drugstore (like the ones from Physicians Formula or Wet n Wild) -- then I don't think this palette is a must for your collection.

Question for My Readers: If you were to purchase this palette, which one would you want to buy the most -- the 'Naughty' or 'Nice' palette? Why?
