theBalm - Balmbini - Babies of theBalm face palette
I am in love with theBalm. What a cute palette! And great quality too!
The product comes with a large built-in mirror, and separated by two magnetic-flap compartments - one for eyeshadows/blushes and the second for lipstick/gloss. As you can see, the amount of product provided is very generous for the price of $28 USD.
CONTENT:The palette is Made in U.S.A. - hurray! - it includes some of theBalm's best-selling and popular products.
Down Boy shadow/blush - 3.5 g / 0.12 oz - this blush is a pretty matte pink perfect for the apples of my cheeks. It looks natural when you don't over do it. It's also soft and easy to apply.

Hot Mama shadow/blush - 2.8 g / 0.13 oz - this blush reminds me of Orgasm by NARS. It's peachy pink with a subtle highlighting effect. I find it to be perfect for spring/summer, and especially on bronzed skin - it looks stunning!

Mary-Lou Manizer the Illuminizer - 1.5 g / 0.05 oz - is versatile silky smooth pressed powder that can be used as a highlighter to add a subtle glow or as a shadow. I think it's a must have for fair or slightly bronzed skin.
Shady Lady eyeshadow in Insane Jane and Jealous Jordana - each 4.2 g / 0.15 oz - these shadows are buttery smooth, highly pigmented, long-lasting, and blend easily! I am in love!

Lipstick in Wanted - 2.6 g / 0.09 oz - is perfect for an everyday look. It's sheer cherry red, highly pigmented, moisturizing, smells good and tastes delicious! yumm
Special Edition Tinted gloss - 3.1 g / 0.11 oz - is moisturizing and not very sticky. I use it as a lipbalm.
Overall, I am very happy with the quality of this palette and the fact that the majority of products are parabens and talc free. I hope it won't be discontinued. It is perfect for everyday/office look, and I can easily pack it in my purse!
Lasting Power: 5/5
