athejournalist asked: Hello :) I have green eyes and fair skin, which palette should I buy? Naked 1, Naked 2 or Nude 'Tude? Thanks <3

Hi Hon!  Well, since they are all neutral palettes, they will all work about the same for you… and for everyone else for that matter!  The Balm Nude’Tude palette is significantly cheaper, but otherwise they are all the same, but different.. if you understand what I mean, haha!  They are all neutral palettes with 12 different colors that can be combined in infinite ways without ever clashing with one another.  The Naked palette runs more warm-toned, the Naked 2 cool-toned, and the Nude’Tude palette has a pretty good mix of warm and cool tones.  The Nude’Tude palette also branches out more from the metallic-brown-taupes that you find mostly in the Naked palettes… for instance a plummy wine color, and a yellow-gold.

image

TheBalm Nude’Tude Palette - $36

image

Urban Decay Naked Palette - $48

image

Urban Decay Naked 2 palette - $48

My best advice is to pick whatever one *speaks to you*.  Sometimes seeing them all side by side will help you figure that out. They will all look good on you, so I can’t be the one to tell you which to get ;)

theBalm Blushes in Down Boy, Hot Mama and Frat Boy. These are so pigmented and the packaging is to die for! I totally recommend them :)

kayyyyydf asked: Hi just found this blog, and absolutely love all your advice/opinions i am a huge fan of bronzers, and shimmers, what would you say has the best color/glow to it? what is your favorite bronzer? also do you have any favorite gradual tanning lotions or self tanners?

Hello, thank you!

If you like a shimmery bronzer, then baked bronzers are definitely the way to go.  They have a gorgeous sheen that is finely milled and not chunky or glittery - they look natural, but still glow.  

image

Hard Candy So Baked Bronzer in Heatwave - $8

image

Milani TanTastic Baked Bronzer in Sun Glow - $8

image

Lorac Tantalizer Baked Bronzer - $32

I also really like these shimmery, but not “baked” options:

image

The Balm Betty Lou-Manizer - $24

image

Physician’s Formula Shimmer Strips Bronzer - $8

I have a bronzer addiction too, and I don’t think I could pick just one bronzer as my favorite!!

As for a gradual self tanner, I think that my favorite easily-accessed one is Jergen’s Natural Glow.  It gives the best color without streaking terribly, and it also provides moisture.  I just hate the smell of it.. mostly because it’s a memory triggering scent for me haha.  

I also love Banana Boat Summer Color - I can’t find it year round, but that might just be because I live in NY and the demand isn’t there in the winter.

But my favorite tanning lotion that I’ve used is Color Couture!  I was sent their products a few months ago and I fell in love.  St. Tropez is also very good, if a little bit pricey!  :)

fantasized-perfection asked: Hey, theBalm is on sale on HauteLook and I was wondering what the best products to buy would be for someone with really light cool toned skin?

I absolutely LOVE The Balm - their packaging, their colors, and the quality of course.

All of the eyeshadow palettes would work for you - since they’re mostly neutral colors, anyone can pull them off.  I love all of the ones that are on there right now… the Nude’Tude palette is one of my special favorites, and the new Meet Matt(e) Nude palette looks really great (I have the original one).  The Shady Lady palettes are also exceptional… I couldn’t pick one ;)

image

The Balm Shady Lady Vol. 1 palette - originally $39.50, on sale for $19.50

image

The Balm Nude’Tude Palette - originally $36, on sale for $18

Their glosses are very nice - sheerly tinted and very hydrating.  Their lipsticks aren’t my favorite because of the scent, but otherwise they’re very beautiful as well.

I love their cheek products most, I think - particularly the blushes (Down Boy is a gorgeous pink,  Frat Boy a poppin’ coral!) and the Mary Lou-Manizer Highlighter… it’s my FAVORITE ALL TIME love love love

image

The Balm Balm Shelter Tinted Gloss - originally $19, on sale for $9.50

image

The Balm Mary Lou-Manizer - originally $24, on sale for $12

Happy shopping!  ;)

jediqueen77 asked: Where can I find Balm products seen them on your posts

I adore products from The Balm… they’re fantastic quality, and the packaging is very cute.  The Balm is probably one of my favorite brands!

Their website, where you can find all of their products, is TheBalm.com (witty, I know)

You can also find them at Sephora.com and in some stores.

I get most of my products from Hautelook.. they feature The Balm quite often, and you can get sale items for 50-75% off!

(Picture is of some of my own products from The Balm!)
