As you'll know from some of my posts over the past few months I've become a little bit obsessed with theBalm. You can check out my posts here and here. A few days ago, when I was wandering around my local TK Maxx store and found this palette I was over the moon. I was even more excited when I remembered I had a £20 voucher and so this was a real treat after what wasn't (at the time) a great day as it was only £16.99. (It retails for £37.50)
This palette includes 9 eyeshadows, a highlighter, bronzer, 2 blushes and 2 lip and cheek creams. What I love about this palette is that it doesn't fall under your typical nude eyeshadow palette. There's a green shade (Bienvenido) and a blue shade (Welkom) and a dark black shimmery shade (Failte) included in the palette as well as some more wearable shades.

This palette differs from the original as it has 3 less eyeshadows but the second version has gained a highlighter, bronzer and two blush shades. My favourite eyeshadow shades are Willkommen, Bienvenido, Bienvenue and Failte.

The highlighter in the palette is (in my opinion) exactly the same as the Mary Lou Manizer so this palette is a great option for getting ready on the go. What I really love about this palette is that there's a matte bronzer and the shade is gorgeous against my skin tone.
Overall I really like this palette. I think it's great for when you're on the go and don't have much time to do your make-up. It's also a really slim palette too so it won't take up too much space in your bag!
