I wasn’t huge on eyeshadow palettes or colourful shadows until pearlessence showed me theBalm Shady Lady Vol. 2. I was so in love with it that I decided I will get one for myself. I’m so thankful for Black Friday sales and a boyfriend who was in the States at the time, I was able to take advantage of the 30% off and got the Shady Lady Vol. 2 palette and the Nude ‘tude palette. Here’s some quick swatches for the Shady Lady Vol. 2 palette. Swatches for Nude ‘tude will be up soon!
I haven’t actually tried out the shadows so I cannot speak for its lasting powder and such. But upon swatching, they feel very soft and smooth, and the colour payoff is excellent for the darker colours and pretty good for the lighter shades.
The palette comes with 9 different shadows, they are all shimmery, some more than others (especially “Caught in the act Courtney”), and 5 of them can be used as liner as well.
See the swatches after the jump!
Left to Right: Devilish Danielle (shadow), Tempting Tara (Shadow), Mischievous Marissa (Shadow), Just This Once Jamie (Shadow), Makeout Mary (Shadow/Liner), Bossy Bobbi (Shadow/Liner)
My favourites are Makeout Mary and Bossy Bobbi, hopefully I will try out an eye look with shades from this palette sometime soon!
I will have a couple more palette swatches up in the near future so stay tuned!
Also, I have been obsessed with Pinterest for a while! It’s basically an online pin board, which is a glorified way to bookmark pictures, links, recipes, etc in my opinion. You can create different boards for different things. It’s such a great way to discover outfit ideas and great recipe and such! Check it out if you haven’t! Warning: It can be extremely addicting.
Have a fantastic weekend everyone! 🙂
NB: For all swatches, I swipe my finger on the shadow once, then swipe it on my arm twice.
