theBalm Nude'Tude Review, Photos & Swatches

 ♡Nude'Tude Palette:
Price: $36
Availability: TheBalm.comhautelook
Weight: .09oz
How many shadows are included: 12
Extras: Dual-ended brush
Paraben and Cruelty Free: Yes   
Claims: "..These satiny smooth colors can be applied naturally, i.e. “let me slip into something more comfortable” or beautifully layered. The wide range gives you light highlighters as well as brazen bold shades that work to add definition and emphasis to your lids. Nude`tude allows you to dramatically dress up your eyes—if nothing else!"

theBalm's Nude'tude palette is made with beautiful eyeshadow colors that can be used to give nice (day time) looks and naughty (dramatic night) looks and everything in-between! The palette is slightly wide and long.  It includes 12 shadows that have adjectives as names.  Similar to their Meet Matt(e) Palette the packaging is made out of cardboard, flips open upward and contains a wide (useable) mirror inside right under the lid.  The shadows are soft and smooth which make them easy to blend. The darker colors do tend to have fallout when used so I recommend applying your concealer and foundation after the eye makeup.  The palette contains satin shadows and a few that look matte.  The palette also comes in two different versions Naughty (the one being shown now) and Nice.  Naughty is the one that shows the "nude" girls in the background and the nice one has a grey bedroom as a background.  I personally would have opted for the nice one =) but I received it as a gift from my friend Melissa & I love it.

  • Blendable
  • Good lasting power
  • Great & soft colors
  • Color payoff
  • Wide mirror
  • Can be used dry or wet
  • "matte" colors can be a bit chalky
  • 1-2 of the satin shadows come off as  shimmery
  • fallout

  The colors are beautiful, however, I wish there were a few more matte shadows.  There are about 3 matte's (not completely matte though) out of all 12 shadows.  The colors for me can be a bit too shimmery if I use only this palette on my eyes.  I think this palette goes well with the Meet Matt(e) Palette.  This is a so called dupe for Urban Decay's Naked palette.  Sadly, I do not own any of the naked palettes yet.  Still debating if I should get them or not.. I may just grab them to compare to this one =).  Without the comparison the shadows are great for every skin tone & the colors go from light to dark.  Just the right colors everyone should own in their make-up collection.  Although, I like to think that I am neither Selfish, Sultry or Stand-offish, those are my favorite shades out of the palette.

My dog decided to be nosy when I was snapping photos

What are your thoughts? Which version of the palette do you own?  Be sure to check out my review about the Meet Matt(e) Palette as well!


  1. I've had my eye on this palette for a while. I have both Naked palettes so im not sure if i really need this. New follower form the BrightSide Beauty Hop!
    If you get a chance stop on over and say hi!!

    1. I don't think you need this palette at all since they seem comparable but if you ever want to grab it just wait for it on hautelook. It goes for $18 instead of $36 on there.

      Don't you love that blog hop? haha I will certainly be dropping by!
