The Balm Balm Beach blush

In February’s Shop My Stash I selected a blush that I knew I would love but that, due to just having so many blushes in my collection, went a little bit forgotten. I think I have owned this for 2 years. No kidding. And this was my first time truly giving it a good shot….

The Balm Take Home The Bronze bronzer

Do you know what was one makeup product that surprised me? The one I am reviewing for you today: The Balm’s Take Home The Bronze. A good bronzer was difficult to find for me for a long time. Most were too orange, too muddy or just too dark. Even some cult favorites just didn’t work…

The Balm Nude Dude eyeshadow palette

Today we’re having a closer look at an eyeshadow palette that I have had in my collection for some time, but that I never got around to reviewing just yet. I am talking about The Balm’s Nude Dude eyeshadow palette. The Balm do some great eyeshadows and I think they are a very underrated brand….

The Balm Instain blush Lace

Bright pink blush? Not necessarily my favorite, however a blue toned pink blush can be a great color in the winter time if you’re fair skinned. If done right however, a bright pink blush can give that ‘just in from the cold kind of flush. While it may not be a look that everyone goes…

The Balm Meet Matt(e) Trimony

The Balm’s Meet Matte… line is one of the best eyeshadow palette collections if you are looking for a matte eyeshadow palette. There is a collection of three and today I am reviewing the second one for you. If this palette looks familiar to you, then that might be possible: I talked about it in…

The Balm Nude Beach

If there is one brand that is heavily underrated, it is The Balm. All of the products I have tried by them are great, including their eyeshadow palettes. Whether it is a matte palette, or one in their Nude range, I have liked every single palette by The Balm so far. What do I think…

The Balm Balm Desert bronzer

Is it a blush? Is it a bronzer? This product by The Balm promises to be both. Depending on your complexion this can also work as both. On my fair skin, this is more of a bronzer than anything else, which is why this review will be focusing on using this product as such. So…

The Balm Meet Matt(e) Nude

Lately I finally committed to trying some matte eyeshadow palettes. I love my shimmers, but a good matte is a must have of course as well. A palette that I have had for a while, but that I had never gotten round to reviewing is The Balm’s Meet Matte Nude. This palette is much raved…

The Balm Instain Blush Houndstooth

My love for dusty rose blushes is no secret. It is my favorite blush color to wear year round, but mainly during fall and winter. This season I have a new favorite: The Balm’s Instain blush in Houndstooth. I had tried one of these blushes before, but never really got into them. And then I…

Which warm neutral palette should you buy?

Eyeshadow palettes: my main make up love. I already showed you my full collection earlier this year, but I wanted to do a more in-depth series. This gives me the chance to discuss even some of the older palettes that have become staples in the makeup world. When should you buy which one? What does…

The Balm Nude Tude

The Balm just released their third and newest eyeshadow palette: Nude Beach and I am way behind and hadn’t even gotten round to reviewing the first one. In a moment of, well better late than never, I decided to still post about this palette that most people are on the fence about. With so many…

The Balm Hot Mama

So you want to be a Hot Mama? You have to hand it to make up brand The Balm: there product names are about as witty as it gets. Pair that off with some retro looking packaging and you have a combination that sells. I had tried a few of their products before, but not…

Italy beauty haul: Sephora, Kiko & more

Haul time! Last week I showed you what I packed when I went to Rome, today I’m showing you the bits I brought home. Be aware: I shopped to my heart’s content. Why? Because Italy has Sephora, which means instant access to brands I can only dream of getting my hands on. So that is…

The Balm Time Balm Skin Clarifier

You will probably know The Balm from their make up. Some of their eyeshadow palettes and also their Mary Lou-Manizer highlighter are some cult products in the beauty community. But did you know they do skincare too? I didn’t. Until I found this Time Balm White Tea Sunflower Skin Clarifier. An interesting product that I…

The Balm Balm Voyage eyeshadow, lip & cheek palette

I’m feeling summer is a great way of catching up on long overdue reviews. Where I posted a mascara review last week, today I’m bringing you a review of The Balm’s Balm Voyage palette. I picked up this palette in Barcelona. I walked into Primor, which is the Spanish version of a high end drugstore…

30 Day Make Up Challenge #18: Extreme

For this rendition of the 30 Day Make Up Challenge, I decided to think outside of my comfort zone. I decided to pile on the make up and even though this may not be very extreme for some people, it is for me. I often only have 15 minutes, if that, when I do my…

The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer highlighter

Highlighter. Never a make up product I cared for much. Until last year. I bought a pretty one from Dior in spring, and a little bit later I bought a stunning highlight by MUA. But both products were trumped the minute I placed my brush in The Balm’s Mary-Lou Manizer. I had heard many good…

Make up confidential tag

  *Raises hand* I hereby confess that I am a make up addict. But if you’ve been following this space, this shouldn’t come as a surprise to you. I buy, use and enjoy make up more than the average person. This has led to an extensive, yet evergrowing collection. I like to try new things,…
