Old Birthday Haul

3 years ago

Hi everyone! I know this is really late, but here is what I received from my family for my birthday. Two of the items are from theBalm and the third item is from the Pantone collection from Sephora. The color of the year is emerald, so this palette of course features a little green.

Here`s what I got:
theBalm Nude `tude eyeshadow palette ($36): This is yet another brand`s take on a nude/neutral palette as made famous by Urban Decay. This one features a nice mix of shimmer and matte shades and the packaging is very thin. As you may notice, the inside packaging is a tad racy, with the pans of shadows being placed on the private areas. This is the `naughty` version of the palette. If that makes you or the person you may be gifting this to uncomfortable, there is a `nice` version of the palette which features the same shades but without the ladies on the packaging.

theBalm Bahama Mama bronzer ($20): Bronzers are something I`m always looking for because a lot of ones on the market right now, especially at the drugstore level, are orange-toned and/or contain shimmer in them which is not exactly ideal for a natural tan or contour. This is a pretty neutral brown and is completely matte, which makes it a great bronzer and contour if you`re light-medium like me.

Pantone eyeshadow trio in `Elemental` (originally $26, now on sale for $13): This is actually what my sister got me and I`m really happy she got this one because it was the piece of the emerald collection I really wanted and felt was the most wearable. It comes in clean white packaging with a magnetic lid and the bottom swings out to reveal a mirror. The three shades are a light green with some shimmer and glitter, a frosty light gold and a matte tan shade.

Thanks for reading!
