Balm Jovi Makeup Palette
£34 (or $40...stupid mark ups!)
Anyone who knows me in real life knows I have a massive soft spot for Bon Jovi
Forever being my favourite band (alongside Avenged Sevenfold FYI)
When I saw this palette pop on my instagram feed a little while ago I knew it had to be mine
Bon Jovi/Rock music references combined with makeup is my idea of heaven!
I'd never tried anything from the brand 'The Balm' having only admired from afar
So I figured this pretty little palette was as good an introduction to the brand as any
When we were in New York I had been tempted by other bits and pieces from them but I'd run out of money and my Mum doesn't quite understand the amount of money I'm willing to splash on makeup
I love the packaging of this palette
It's very slim and sleek but still has a fun design
I love how the front looks like a poster to a festival with the guitar and name
Unlike a lot of palettes around this one doesn't just have a range of eyeshadows but also a highlighter, a blusher and two lipsticks
I'm not a huge fan of having cream products, like the lipsticks, in the same packaging as powder products especially with no form of barrier to stop fallout from the powders ending up in the creams
But being that I'm not a massive lipstick wearer this didn't put me off
Also the fact you cant take the lipstick out with you to top during the day unless you lug the whole palette around with you or depot the lip colours
Other than that this little beauty is amazing
All the colours are so pigmented and there are such a range of different shades
You can do pretty much any eye look you fancy
I like the fact all the colours lean towards the neutral spectrum but you can easily smoke them out
The shade names are really clever and cute too...Blink 1982, The Stroke, Iron Maid-in, Alice Copper
Just a really thought out palette which definitely stood out to me!
The staying power is fantastic too and I really recommend this palette.
Have you tried any The Balm products?
I'm going to have to pick up some more goodies!
