Beauty Bandit: Smoke Balm Review, Photo & Swatches



the balm Smoke Balm

I love the balm products, so happy I ordered this one. Love the color in this trio palette. Easy to travel with or drop in a purse.


the Balm Smoke Balm Eyeshadow Palette are a new trio of eyeshadow in smoky shades. Housed in the Balm’s traditional vintage pin up style compacts each trio looks like they contain full size shadows.


The Smoke Balm has two separate palettes, but they are only named by “Set One” & “Set Two”. The one with the grey packaging is Set One, and the one with the green is Set Two. Each palette has three eyeshadow shades.

The palette I got is Set One.


The best part is that each palette is a mere US$12. This is also packaged in cardboard packaging with the design on the sleeve exactly like the design on the product itself.

These aren’t available on the Balm’s site and appear to be exclusive to Kohls, feelunique or Amazon online.


I’m quite curious to indulge because the Balm has some of the softest, buttery formulations ever.The shimmery Flame was pigmented and a little goes a long way.

These were swatches with my fingers on bare arm. The picture was taken in night light, I apologized for the lighting.

Left to Right:
Blaze: Black with silver glitter
Spark: Matte grey-taupe
Flame: Shimmery pearl

Very handy essential palette. Good quality and wonderful for those just starting out in makeup. Packaging is super cute and functional. Really really like this.

What do you think about these Smoke Balm palettes?

Thanks so much for taking the time to read and hope to see you again in the next one 🙂

    The eyeshadows are very big, but it’s not very versatile since it only has 3 colors to work with.

    I love the look of the packaging but I am not feeling the colors on this palette personally! But I glad that you love them! 🙂



  6. I bought this trio at Kohls awhile ago and then never tried it….mainly because I was having a hard time coming up with what to do with the three shades. I’d love to see what you come up with! But yes, it will be great for traveling and who doesn’t love theBalm’s packaging?!?!
