Makeup Review


2017bullet journalsetup (2).jpg

My mum gifted this palette to me after I had surgery and it’s so cute I just had to review it! This is my first The Balm product but I would really like some more…


The palette comes with 9 shades – three matte and six shimmer. The palette has this cute flip-down section which spells the pans out as ‘eat your heart out’ which is sooo sweet and matches the quirky packaging, which is based on a restaurant menu. Luckily you can flip this down to get to the pans easier!

The shades are as follows:

Bruce Shetta – a pinky cream matte
Mac Encheese – a dark lavender matte
Ray Sinbread – a cool-toned muted brown matte
Tate R. Tots – a cool-toned rose-gold shimmer
Rock Road-Icecream – dark lavender shimmer with brown-grey undertones
Chris P. Bacon – a bright burnt orange shimmer
Hal Apeno-Poppers – a light taupe with very slight shimmer (looks matte)
Artie Chokedip – a muted medium blue-grey with slight shimmer (looks matte)
Alfred O’Pasta – a deep blue-grey shimmer


I found the shadows really easy to swatch but quite difficult to blend on the eye. They weren’t very pigmented and required a lot of work, but looked nice in the end. The shimmers were better applied with a finger.

What did you think of the palette? If you have any palette recommendations please let me know because I collect them and love to write reviews on them! If you’ve seen a palette in my collection (click here to see my entire collection) that you want me to review, let me know and I’ll definitely do that!

  1. I’ve heard this isn’t one of the best offerings from The Balm, I have the Meet Matt(e) Hughes Palette and love it, it blends so easily & the colours in it are gorgeous. But I’m tempted by this cause it’s so cute.

      1. It’s a pity when companies like this are inconsistent in their formula’s. I’ve seen it as well with Too Faced. And it’s not like this brands are cheap! I expect it more from drugstore brands but oddly enough they are the ones who have upped their games!
