Mission #1 the perfect nudes for everyday. I spied a hugantic sale going down on Thebalm.com website in celebration of their new site design opening. I waited for this thing like a little girl awaits Christmas or her first tutu. It actually disturbed my sleep, because I stayed up thinking that when they said tomorrow, it meant anywhere from 1 am to when normal people are up. Alas, they had technical difficulties and kept putting it off until finally the official unveiling of the 50% off sale when I went mad and ninja'd the Naughty Nude palette into my cart. I got it for $22.95 including shipping! It certainly is a beauty. Similar in some ways to the Urban decay palette, but not many of the same shades. Regardless, I am ecstatic happy with my purchase and this will make a great every day palette for a long time to come.
There are plenty of mattes and lots of sheens, and they're nicely pigmented. I love this thing for everyday to night looks! There are so many smokey eye combos waiting for me to do!
So there you have it. The price was $18 plus 4.95 s/h. The regular retail price was $36!! Leaving a whopping $2.05 leftover. Hey, It could come in handy.
This blog post will "self instruct", now.
