What? Weekly Favorite two weeks in a row? Whoop whoop. This one’s been a no brainer for the last few weeks since I have used it every single day since I got it. It’s TheBalm’s Meet Matte Trimony Eye Shadow Palette.
As with ALL my TheBalm purchases I ordered this during one of the Hautelook sales. It usually runs around $42 on TheBalm’s website or Kohls but I got mine for $21 during the sale. Seriously, if you are wanting any items from TheBalm, wait for a Hautelook sale. Unlike most other brands, they usually have their full range of products on sale.
As the name implies, this is all matte palette with 9 shades in the pink, purple & brown tones. The palette itself comes in a cardboard packaging and is about the size of a palm. It also has a decent sized mirror.
Why I Love It?
+ I’ve used every single shade in the palette except the bubble gum pink. You can do a soft, daytime look or a super smokey eye with the selection of shades.
+ There are warm and cool toned shadows in here. I’m usually drawn to warmer shades but it’s nice to have a palette with both, specially for the fall and winter months.
+ The quality of the eye shadows is really good. They are super pigmented, blend really nicely and have very little fall out. The purple and black shadows are particularly impressive. Most purple and black eye shadows I’ve had aren’t very pigmented and they tend to be chalky. These are great!
+ This is a pretty travel friendly palette. It’s thin, compact and has a mirror. Also, TheBalm packaging and names are so clever and cute. I can’t even deal, his teeth are sparkling haha.
+ The brand is paraben and cruelty free.
What I don’t Like?
+ This is ridiculous but the only thing I don’t like is that all the eye shadows are matte. Yes, I am well aware the palette is called Meet Matt(e). I also knew they were all matte before I got it. I just wish there was one little shimmer in here. Preferably in the spot where the bubble gum pink shade is 😉
Other than that this is a great palette. I like it so much that I haven’t touched my beloved TooFaced Chocolate Bar palette. Also, if you get it during one of the sales for $21, each eye shadow comes out to be less than $3.
