Seven Days of Nude’tude!!! Day::1


For the next seven days you will see seven different looks I’ve created with theBalm’s Nude’Tude palette.  This is one of my all-time favorite palettes and I don’t think it gets nearly enough love and recognition. After I created this look I thought it looked like something Lilly Collins might wear.  Let me know if you agree!

Haul from the Balm



I don’t have that many products to share but I guess three would be considered a haul?  Whats the magic number for a haul? I don’t know… I was first introudcted to the Balm through Birchbox, with a sample of the Mary-Lou Manizer which I love. The products from the Balm are long wearing and a little goes a long way.  I still have my samples of the Mary-Lou Manizer and the Hot Mama Blush  from about a year ago and have yet to hit pan on them.


The place with the best prices on the Balm products I have found is Amazon. I bought CabanaBoy blush/shadow,  Bahama Mama Bronzer/Shadow &/Contour Powder and the Nude’ Tude eye shadow Palette through Tophatter.  I got a deal on the bronzer which retails for $20.00, on Amazon it is $15.29 and I paid $14.00 with Tophatter.  CabanaBoy retails for $21.00, on Amazon it is $16.50 and I paid $18.00 so I lost on that one. Nude’ tude retails on the Balm site for $36.00, on Amazon retails for $22.99, I paid $22.00 on Tophatter. Can I get a holler for saving 99 cents?!
