theBalm Eyeshadow Swatches

Yesterday I posted a giveaway for a Hot Ticket nail polish and Balm Shelter lip gloss that were a part of my Black Tie Kit that I recently bought, and today I bring you swatches of the other items.

  • Shady Lady Eyeshadow in Caught in the Act Courtney and Shameless Shana
  • Overshadow Shimmery Mineral Shadow in No Money, No Honey
  • Hot Mama! Shadow and Blush

I've been wearing all of these for the past few days and I love them all.  I've only used Hot Mama! as a blush, but it's a gorgeous pink/peach color that would look great on the eyes as well.  Just a light dusting along my cheekbones is enough; the color payoff is quite nice.


I'm really loving the Overshadow Mineral Shadow because it's so glittery and gorgeous.  It's definitely a "fun" shade, a light gold. I like to use it along my brow bone and in the inner corners of my eyes.  It's in one of those jars that has the three small holes inside, though, which I think are messy and kind of annoying.  I'd prefer the pressed format, but I guess most mineral products aren't packaged that way.



Lastly, the Shady Lady shadows.  Caught in the Act Courtney (top) is a deep, warm brown with flecks of gold glitter, and Shameless Shana (bottom) is a rust-brown/gold shimmer.  I like both of them because they're appropriate enough for work, but they're still really fun to wear.  Since they came in a set that was meant to be used all together, they obviously layer perfectly over each other.


Bottom Line: I'm so glad I was able to snag this kit for only $13 (at Marshalls), because I think theBalm products are excellent.  I'm happy with the color payoff on the shadows, and they have pretty good staying power -- although I've only worn them with eyeshadow primer, so I'm not sure how long they last without.

    1. Haha I hear you on that, my "to buy" list is miles long. Slowly but surely I hope to try everything I want to; I hope you get the chance, too!

      If you have a Marshalls near you I'd suggest checking them out, chances are they'll have some TheBalm products that are deeply discounted.

  3. These are just beautiful. We don't have a Marshalls near us. We don't have anything near us come to think of it lol. If I am ever in an area that does have a Marshalls I'm going to check their eyeshadows out. I love pretty shadows.

    1. I've heard that their sister store, TJ Maxx, has some TheBalm products too. Not sure if that one might be a little closer to you, but either way I hope you get to check them out sometime because you can find some really great deals.
