I remembered being over enthusiast with this Mini Nude Eyeshadow which I received in my April Ipsy Glam bag. Some of you might probably have received it too and in different shades. I got mine in Flirty which I’m very excited about. This shade is close to irridescent purple toned and the shimmer is just glorious. If you love shimmery finish eyeshadow and haven’t pick up any Urban Decay or Coastal Scents eyeshadow palette then you will like palette.
Well, in case you want to know if I have the theBalm Nude ‘tude original eyeshadow palette. The answer is yes and I also did a review on it my previous post. Here is the link in case you want to go back to read it 🙂 I love the rich pigmentation on theBalm makeup lines and especially the Nude ‘tude eyeshadow palette. And I love it. I also did a review recently on the Shady Lady eyeshadow palette which I was totally floored
Okay, I’m not doing a whole Nude Dude eyeshadow palette but just one Flirty Dude I got from my Ipsy bag. When I first touched the texture of this mini Nude Dude eyeshadow,I do feels that the formula is a little dryish and the texture solid-hard on pan. It doesn’t have a soft or smooth creamy texture on it. Honestly, I was a little disappointed to say the least having high expectation on theBalm . Anyways, I continued to go a head to try it and I’m not impressed at all.
I noticed that this shade has a high amount of glitter that may be accountable for the rough texture but the real surprise is the beautiful shimmery finish when I did the color swatch.
No doubt, on swatch it looks creamy and offers shimmery finish appearance but as far as the pigmentation goes, I’ll have to say low-average pigmentation. I still need to give credit for it does blend well on crease and I didn’t noticed any fallout. Yes!
I can’t tell if it’s only my sample that feels chalky but in terms of the shade I’m liking it. I learned that sometimes some eyeshadows perform beautifully on swatches but lousy on lids and vice versa. When I applied this Flirty shade on my crease, I’m impressed that there weren’t any fallout given the chalky texture I mentioned earlier.
I anted to mention that this Flirty shadow has a good staying power and it continues to stay put for several hours.
To sum up, I really like the shade and if only theBalm can improve on their pigmentation on this Flirty Dude to be more pigmented and less glittery, I’m sure it will melt many girls hearts. But judging from so many eyeshadow palette lines by theBalm, I believe they’re on the right track.
I love theBalm makeup brand and if you want to try an eyeshadow palette, may I suggest getting Nude ‘tude the original palette. I’m relating this to one of the Disney films where the first movie “The Lion King” in my opinion is better than the sequel. You get my point, right!
So, that’s it on my review and I hope you find it interesting. Until next time, stay beautiful!
What do you think of the Nude Dude regular size eyeshadow palette?
