Must-Have Monday: Meet Matt(e) Nude eyeshadow palette

It’s Monday! The last full week before Thanksgiving. I have a feeling this will be a loooong week. I’m hoping that a busy schedule will make it fly by.

This week’s Must-Have Monday item is the Meet Matt(e) Nude eyeshadow palette from The Balm. This is the only product from the brand that I own.


Cost & Where to Buy: I paid about $22 for this on Hautelook. (Haven’t joined Hautelook? What are you waiting for? It’s a site with greatly discounted name brand clothing, shoes, accessories, home decor, and beauty items. Want to join? Use my link!) The normal price is $42 online. Sephora and Ulta do carry this brand, but I have not looked for it in stores.

Why is it a Must-Have? Well, why is it NOT a must-have. First of all, the shadows are quality. Not flaky, they last all day, a little bit goes a long way, and the colors are pigmented. I’ve been loving a natural look lately and Matt Singh, Matt Lombardi, and Matt Hung are perfect. I have noticed that they shadows don’t go on well with my finger. I’ve been using an e.l.f. eyeshadow brush and a Sephora crease brush to apply them.

The bottom line: Matte eyeshadows rock, and this palette gives you a great bang for your buck. There is a nice variety of natural shades to help accomplish most looks with just one palette. For more photos, check out Beauty and the Sweets (where I stole the photo).

Have you tried products from The Balm? If so, what do you love? I’m looking forward to trying more of their products.
