So, story time…
I’ve been stalking the Balm daily to see if they release anything new. I sweat that brand so hard. I was kinda hopeful they’d surprise us with a new blush like last year’s Down Boy but sadly no such luck.
However, good news, they do have a brand new palette and new cream shadows to enjoy.
This Fall I’m seeing two trends that keep popping up time and time again one of which is cream shadows. Alot of brands seem to be dancing to the tune of creamy shadows. Not sure why this is trending at the moment since I think most prefer powder over cream however it is an interesting development particularly for those who enjoy using cream as a base for powder.
Not to be outdone in the world of trends the Balm Batter Up Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow heads up the Balm Fall Collection 2010. It seems they embraced the packaging from the Overshadows but not nearly as cute since the girl featured is only a silhouette. Shades are limited but this isn’t anything new as the brand tends to do smaller releases and not huge ones. The release features a total of four shades which lean towards being more nude and natural.
- Base Hit Kit (soft golden glow)
- Grand Slam Pam (raisin shimmer)
- Home Plate Kate (hint of sheer rose)
- Triple Play Mae (warm shimmering mocha)
These are $18 each for 0.18 oz which is a deal compared to the much smaller Bare Escentuals Buxom Stay There Eyeshadow at $17 for 0.12 oz however variety could prevent you from indulging.
None the less I love the Balm so I might give one shade a try at the very least.
The Balm Balmbini: Babies of theBalm Face Palette ($28) could appeal to those who haven’t tried the brand before as it contains some popular items from the Balm for eyes, lips, and cheeks plus a face chart for reference.
With this one you’ll get:
- the Balm Downboy
- the Balm Hot Mama
- the Balm Mary-Lou Manizer
- the Balm ShadyLady in Insane Jane and Jealous Jordana
- Plus Special Edition Tinted Lipgloss and a built in mirror!
Cute eh? I have much of what’s in this palette but it’s a great one for those who don’t own any of these items.
