theBalm's Meet Matt(e) Nude Palette - Review & Swatches:

"Don't let the physical world dictate who you are and how you act, open your mind to something greater and as a result you will always find peace within your heart."

- Jonathan Kuiper

Hello lovelies! How are you? I took a little break from blogging for my birthday but I'm back with a bunch of reviews! Today's is all about theBalm's Meet Matt(e) Nude palette, an all matte palette with beautiful every day shades. My good friend Amanda surprised me with this and I've grabbed for it with almost every single eyeshadow look since!

IMG_3644This palette kind of goes hand in hand with the original Meet Matt(e) palette.. I suppose you could say it's Part 2...

IMG_3564The size of this palette is much larger than the original and the pans are HUGE!

IMG_3571Every shade is matte, which I absolutely love. You can create so many looks with this alone or use it as a companion palette when you need those essential blending and crease shades.


IMG_4034The first three shades are:

Matt Johnson - A deep grey toned navy.

Matt Garcia - A gorgeous warm reddish brown... Probably my favorite in this palette.

Matt Malloy - A pure white. This can be a little bit powdery but not too bad.

IMG_3569The three middle shades:


Matt Rosen - A warm chestnut brown. Another favorite! Gorgeous for the crease.

Matt Wood - A deep bark brown, the darkest shade in the palette other than Matt Johnson.

Matt Singh- A beautiful pale pink, I love this for a blending shade!

IMG_3570The last three shades:


Matt Abdul - A true cool grey.

Matt Lombardi - A pale yellow.

Matt Hung - This shade is pretty unique, it has an almost purple-grey tint to it. It needs to be built up a little but it's beautiful.


The pigmentation in this palette is fantastic and I absolutely love how large the pans are. This is a great palette for every day wear, to mix and match with other palettes and it's also great for travel. The wear-time on these shadows is great as well! Loving this! <3

Meet Matt(e) Nude is regularly $42 but you can find theBalm on Hautelook all the time and get amazing deals on their palettes so keep your eyes open!!
