My new buys for January

I’m a girl who loves to stick to what she knows and I think some times I should be a little bit more adventurous and try some thing new. Maybe I should have added this to my Goals For 2016. So this month I have purchased a couple of item’s which I spotted while watching You Tube videos and thought I’d give them a whirl.

The Balm, I know they are nothing new on the scene but they are certainly new to my make up bag.  I love the pin up branding and this is what first drew my attention find out more about their other products.

The first product I purchased of their is the Nude Dude eyeshadow palette vol 2. The palette comes with a mixture of matt and shimmer shade which apply beautiful. I found after a bit more usage that the pigment in the shimmer shades stand out a lot more if you apply them with your finger. The shadows are very long lasting and I was really impressed with the finish.

I also bought the Bahama Mama bronzer as my current one had a warm tint to it and I loved the mat finish to this one. The bronzer blends beautifully and worked really well with the Mary-Lou Manizer luminzer. I think this would work well with any skin tone and any blusher combo.

I am really happy with these new additions to my make up bag and will certainly be keep my eye’s and ears open for any new products with bring out this spring. Do you use TheBalm? What products of their do you enjoy the most?

  1. I like theBalm! I have a mini from an Ipsy Bag so I have been looking to possibly buy this palette. I do wear a lot of these colors so I think it would be a good buy. I could also dual use them as bronzers and highlighters.
