TheBalm Shady Lady Palette: The "Bomb" for Creating Looks from the Neutral to the More Dramatic

Allow me to introduce you to TheBalm and their Shady Lady palette, consisting of nine beautiful and long-lasting colors that can be used to create looks from the day-time natural eye to the more dramatic eye that is appropriate for night-time. These shadows can all be used wet or dry. When used wet, they act as great bases (for other shadows) as well as eyeliners.

The shadows are all very nicely pigmented, feel extremely soft to the touch, and can be combined in many different ways to achieve a range of looks. This Sephora-exclusive, limited edition palette has also earned Sephora's "natural" seal of distinction.

Housed in the very adorable and compact leopard-print package, you will find the following colors, three of which are brand new shades:

*Caught in the Act Courtney - a rich brown with gold sparkle

Shameless Shana - tahitian bronze

Luscious Lani - icy pink champagne

*Jealous Jordana - rich shimmering green

*Risque Renee - dark navy blue sheen

Curvy Cami - plum shimmer with gold flecks

Jet-Setting Jennifer - pale gold shimmer

All About Alex - olive shimmer

Easy Wheezie - gunmetal grey shimmer

Note: The colors marked with the (*) are specifically designated as shadow/liners

How cute are those names? They all feature girl's first names with fun adjectives to describe each one!

And without further ado......the shadows in all of their glory!
And finally, what post would be complete without swatches?

The Shady Lady palette can be purchased at Sephora stores or online at, and it retails for $38. I was lucky enough, however, to snatch up this beauty at the Make Up Show for $20 :-) That, my cosmetics-loving friends, is a steal! I really do think, though, that $38 is very reasonable for nine extremely versatile colors (it averages out to a little over $4 per shadow)! If I were you, I'd go check out this shadow palette before it's gone!
