The Balm Haul



Over the last few weeks I have fallen in love with The Balm, an absolutely gorgeous brand with amazing products! I've collected a few of their products (mostly at the same time) and wanted to share this "haul" with you!



The first product, which in my opinion is the most creative, is the Meet Matt(e) Palette! It's filled with gorgeous matted shades, all named after gorgeous Matts! I am especially fond of Matt Smith, although that may be because I'm obsessed with Doctor Who



So. Many. Matts!



My next product to show you is Cabana Boy, a beautiful and rich blush that I have absolutely fallen in love with! This is my go-to blush every day, as it's so pigmented and has amazing staying power!
At first I thought the colour was a little bit daring, which is probably why I picked it, but it's actually turned out to be very compatible and versatile!



"So many men, so little time..." So true!



Next up was actually a gift with purchase during a promotion happening at David Jones! Spend a certain amount of money and you receive the Balmbini Volume 2 palette absolutely free! This was a deal I definitely could not pass up! It has some gorgeous colours and is a handy little kit to keep around!



Do I spy my name in there? Jinxy Jasmyne, yes I do! 



Last but certainly not least is the much lusted after (at least, for me it is) Nude Tude palette! I ordered this from Ozsale.com for a measly $18, which was amazing at the time, but unfortunately due to poor shipping quality, the mirror came smashed! I was shattered! I couldn't bear to even put it in my pretty photos!

I was a bit sad to see that even though this was being shipped from the good old United States, it was the "safe" version of the palette, meaning there were no sexy ladies! No matter, at least the colours are still amazing!



Loving the names!

So, after buying all of these products, I can safely say that I am now officially addicted the The Balm products! I can't get enough of their cute packaging and amazing quality cosmetics! 
Rest assured I'll never buy from Ozsale.com again, but I will be okay with splurging and paying (gasp) full prize for something I know won't show up broken!

I was lucky, some girls I heard received the make-up all smashed and ruined, so at least my actual make-up was in tact!

So what do you think of my haul? Are you as in love with The Balm as I am? Do you have a favourite product, or one that you would love to try?

If you'd like me to do a full review with swatches, let me know, I'm more than happy to oblige!

  7. That sucks about Ozsale! You'd think they would've put a bit more thought and care into the packaging and delivery. But at least it was only $18! I only have one thebalm product (the highlighter) but I'd love to try their blushes and eyeshadow palettes.

    1. I really thought they would. Most of the other stuff I'd received at least came in sturdier cardboard packages, but this one was in like a crappy thin plastic package :(
      You should try more though, the blushes are amazing! :)
