I just adore palettes, any sort of palette, eyeshadow, lipstick, blush, etc. A bunch of colors in one spot, yes please!
So when I received this over the top cute retro packaged How 'Bout Them Apples? Cheek & Lip Palette from theBalm, $32, I couldn't WAIT to tear it open and try it out! The first thing that struck me was how super thin this palette is. It's like a flip book with one of the best and clearest large mirrors inside so you can see your entire face! Why do I think this is a big deal? Have you ever gotten a mirror included in a palette that is so tiny you can only see one feature at a time?? Yeh, aggravating. This thing fits nicely in my purse without taking up a bunch of room.
Here is a looksy of the inside and all of the yummy apple themed shades that truly work on your lips and/or your cheeks!
I do have 2 favorites out of the bunch though, "Crisp" and "Caramel." Here is a look at both.
First, is "CRISP" which reminds me almost of a cream-like Nar's "Orgasm" shade. It's more peachy or apricot (than apple-ha!) with a slight golden shimmer to it. It gives a glowing cheeky look to the skin and looks oh so girly.
Second is "CARAMEL" which looks very brown in the palette but once it's on, it's a beautiful warm neutral nude shade. It made my lips look like a more healthy version of their original color (with zero shimmer) and these creams are very smooth and balm like. I absolutely LOVE the way all of them feel on the cheeks and lips, with zero stickiness and melt right into your skin.
I am so impressed with these multitasking colors of How 'Bout Them Apples?, $32, that this palette will be front and center in my makeup routine every day. I got a few more products from this company that I cannot wait to share with you very soon!
Have you ever tried any theBalm products before?
