theBalm Shady Lady Vol. 1
theBalm Shady Lady Vol. 1 ($39.50, 9 x 0.067, theBalm) is a 9-pan eyeshadow palette with beautiful multi-chromatic shades. The palette is a thin, study, hard cardboard square with a magnetic closure and full-sized mirror. I did a look using this palette here.
Caught in the Act Courtney is a cool medium-dark brown with multi-chromatic shimmer and superfine micro glitter. It has a smooth but thin and dry texture with low, build-able pigmentation. It can also be found in theBalm's Shady Lady Vol. 2.
Shameless Shana is a warm medium orangey copper brown with a frost finish. It has a soft, smooth, and dense texture with great pigmentation.
Luscious Lani is a warm light pinky beige with a frost finish. It has a soft, smooth, dense texture and great pigmentation.
Jealous Jordana is a neutral darkened forest green with green shimmer and a frost finish. It has a soft, smooth, dense texture with great pigmentation. I love using this as a liner!
Risqué Renee is a cool grayed medium-dark blue with a soft shimmer sheen. It has an almost matte finish, actually. It has a soft, smooth, yet thin texture with medium, build-able pigmentation. I found that it applied slightly unevenly.
Curvy Cami is a warm medium red-based purple with multi-chromatic shimmer finish. It has a slightly dry and crumbly texture with medium, build-able pigmentation. I found that it applied a bit unevenly.
Jet-Setting Jennifer is a warm muted yellow gold with a slight pale copper flash. It has a metallic finish. It has a soft, smooth, dense texture with excellent pigmentation. It's easily my favorite shade!
All About Alex is a cool medium olive-gold with a slight metallic finish. It has a soft, smooth, dense texture with excellent pigmentation. It's one of the most unique shades I've come across.
Easy Wheezie is a cool medium purple-toned gunmetal silver with a metallic finish. It has a soft, smooth, thin texture with great pigmentation.
I absolutely LOVE theBalm products, especially when I can snag them for 40%-60% off at TJ Maxx, which is where I found this guy for $12.00! If you can't find them at your TJ Maxx for such a crazy discounted price, you can still purchase them on theBalm's website for full price.
The value here is outrageous: full-sized shadows are $16.00 for 0.12 oz ($133.33/oz.) whereas this palette has half-sized shadows at $65.83/oz. Vol.1 is definitely my favorite one because it includes most of the permanent shades that I wanted to try all in one palette. If only Mischievous Marissa was in this one!
