Antipodean Beauties – Pop of Colour

Antipodean Beauties Banner

 

I’ve been missing out challenges lately. BAD!  Sorry!  This week, however, I present to you..

Pop of Colour

 

Instead of one pop of colour, I thought I should do a look with a variety of colours that are nice and bright.  Why do one colour when you can have a few, right?  The colours I used were mainly blue and purple.

 

Well, here it is..

TheBalm Nude Tude Palette

I’ve been doing a couple of looks using TheBalm’s Nude Tude Eyeshadow Palette.  Here are a few: Eyeliner Art look and the Summer look I’ve been loving this palette as it has a couple of matte and shimmer eyeshadows.  All the colours are in the Nude range – browns/pinks (with one yellow/gold eyeshadow).  Pigmentation of the eyeshadows in this palette is fantastic, although it does become powdery when you dip your brush into it.   This can get a little annoying as it can make your palette quite messy (you’ll see from the picture below).   You can do a daytime look and build on top of that and create a night time look. I lean more towards the shimmers because I have got monolids.  Monolids can tend to look a bit “flat” and shimmers help with creating a bit more dimension than matte eyeshadows.

The names for the eyeshadows are fantastic.  I think the names for all the products from this brand are pretty cool.  It’s definitely different to the usual “Raspberry colour” or “Shocking Pink” .  This palette comes with a brush which, I must say is pretty useless.  I do not like the brush at all and feels quite “plastic”.  There is a nice big mirror that comes with this palette, which is awesome for looking at yourself! (LOL! what else would you do with a mirror!)

Picture time!

Swatches on my hand was with only one swipe. Also note the eyeshadow has “spilled” all over the palette

Conclusion:

I love this palette!  This palette can pull of a day look and a night look.  Currently, it is my go-to palette for most of my looks. Comparatively to Urban Decay, this eyeshadow palette is slightly more expensive (Urban Decay comes with 1.3g for each eyeshadow while the eyeshadow in this palette is roughly 0.92g each).

Price:

AUD$49.95

Where to buy:

I bought this online, direct from the US website but you can buy this from David Jones

Would you get a palette like this?
