Dust, my favourite colour in my Naked 3 palette, hit pan a while ago. Since then, it feels like it’s crumbling daily, along with my heart.

nude tude paletteI’ve been looking for a replacement, even though I was tempted to re-buy the Naked 3 just for this one shade that I love so much, but I saw this little palette on another blawwwwgggg and was like DING DING.

If naked ladies on a something isn’t going to sell me a product, then nothing is.

nude tude palette reviewThe Nude’tude palette by the Balm Cosmetics is a palette of 12 shimmery nudes, each with adorable names and it’s great for creating a natural look, or layering for something a little more sexy.

DSC_0182I’m really loving the two shades stubborn and stand-offish for a base, highlighting the centre of my eye with a bit of sassy and then adding a bit of silly or sexy to the outer corners.

The shadows all have great pigmentation and staying power – they even stayed put during a workout! That’s a win for me!

You can buy them for around £20-£25 each, which makes a great alternative to the Naked palettes if you’re wanting something a bit different and not as costly. I managed to bag mine for £15 from eBay – it was an ex-display model. The shadows were untouched, but the outer packaging did have some other make-up marks on them which were easily wiped off.

Gotta grab a bargain, right?

Have you tried any other products from the Balm Cosmetics?

I’m a bit intrigued now to try some other things by them!



  1. This palette is just gorgeous.. I love the cute packaging.. Really wish we had the balm products available in my country.

  2. It’s such a cute little palette! I wish I knew what I was doing with eyeshadow to be able to justify buying myself this, I want some naked ladies 🙁

  3. wow this one looks really cute ! I haven’t tried an of their products yet but you just got me inspired to go for a hunt on Ebay :))

  4. I’ve been hearing good things about the Balm’s eyeshadows but I’ve never tried them. This palette has many pretty and wearable colors.

  5. Really pretty palette and a great alternative to the Naked palettes as you mentioned! Liking the look you created, natural but with that little extra touch 🙂

  6. what a lovely palette! the nude design is adorable:)

    and you say these shades survive a workout…well, that’s impressive!

  7. Loving The Balm, I’ve tried their cheek & lip stains and it was a great, creamy blush that blended well and didn’t go all weird on my skin like creamy anything normally does! Really like the look of this palette, so many pretty nudes!

  10. I havent try any product from the brand thebalm
    This palette and one blush is in my wishlist forever now 🙂

  11. I’ve read a lot of good reviews on this palette but never thought of picking it up for try. Might give it a go soon, I really love how it looks on you.

  12. What a lovely palette really nice smokey shades. I often go for individual shades on their own but I like that in a palette you can mix shades Lucy x

  13. Lovely post! Such a stunning palette, I bought this back in November and I’m in love! My favourite shade has definitely got to be ‘Sexy!’ great review x

  14. i have this palette, and it is beautiful. You should definitely check out The Balm’s Mary Loumaniser it is such a pretty highlighter. Oneof the best in my opinion.

  15. I cannot get my hands on anything from the Balm! I need to be able to swatch something before I buy it so I don’t like buying makeup on the internet unless I know I love it?!
    I just need to find a superdrug that stocks it!
