The Good
Um...did you see my swatches above with no primer? The pigmentation is insane.
The colors are wearable. You can go from day to night, sweet to sexy, and anything in between.
A nice mixture of finishes...matte, metallic, satin, shimmery. You name it, this palette has it.
The packaging! I'm a sucker for pin-up girls. They're too cute.
The price-- $36 for 12 awesome eyeshadows in an adorable palette? I think that's pretty good!

The Bad
Buy it. Now. ;)

This palette has been a favorite of mine since I got it around Christmastime. I use it nearly everyday. To me it's better than all of the "naked" and "nude" palettes out right now. If you're not keen on the suggestive pin-up girl packaging that I'm in love with, theBalm does offer a different version of this palette with the same colors...just without the toplessness and such.

I totally recommend picking up this palette if you like it too!

Do you like the colors in this palette? What are your thoughts?


  1. Ive never really looked at this palette, I somehow had got it in my head that it was all really sparkly shades. Definitely going to pick it up now, the pigmentation is immense! Xx

  2. I love this palette. I think im gonna break down and get it next time its on hautelook lol

  3. Love the look of this, the shadows are so pigmented and the packaging is sooooo damn cute xx

  4. I already have too many Naked pallettes, but this is a great option if you don't have some others! Thanks for sharing!


  5. I love the packaging and this palette is gorgeous!

  8. This is such a gorgeous palette. There are so many great palette like this out there right now. The Balm does such a great job on their products. From what I can tell, this product isn't an exception. Thanks for the review!
