theBalm Meet Matt(e) Eyeshadow Palette Review + FOTD!

theBalm Meet Matte

An eyeshadow palette that will meet all of your matte needs. The nine shadows found in the compact palette (named after our favorite Matthews next door) can be combined to create a multitude of soft and wearable looks. In the daytime, choose more neutral shades to seamlessly blend, enhance your eyes and complement your complexion. In the evening, create a sultry, smoky eye by concentrating the velvety-rich colors at the lash line before blending towards the crease. Meet Matt(e)™ offers the best in matte color, versatility and convenience. The palette includes three vibrantly toned shadows to coordinate with your outfits and enhance your eyes, three dark, rich shades to create smoky looks or to be used as soft eyeliners and a mini double-sided eyeshadow/liner brush.

Everybody loves a matte eyeshadow palette for an everyday natural look, am I right? I am guilty of buying several palettes with neutral shades but I know that I will make the most use out of them. I love wearing eyeshadow shades like gold, brown, champagne, and the like. On some days, I experiment with bright or fun colors to make my eyes pop! I love to experiment with my look that is why I have tons of #selfie on my Instagram. Follow Me! :-)

Today, I will share my most recent eyeshadow palette called theBalm Meet Matt(e) Eyeshadow Palette. I’ve wanted this palette for years but I kept myself from buying it because it’s too pricey for me (back then!). My makeup artist used this palette when my husband and I had our engagement shoot, and I loved the look she did on me. So since Luxola has it on sale for Php 1,100+ (US $25), I took advantage and bought it (finally!). I searched but it seems like this palette is already discontinued, but there are still sellers at

Drugstore Finds: NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in CANNES!


Neither lipstick nor lip gloss, this matte lip cream is a new kind of lip color that goes on silky smooth and sets to a matte finish. Soft Matte Lip Cream is surprisingly durable and, unlike some matte lipstick formulas, also moisturizing.

I am on a drugstore brand kick lately so I am following up my last review with another one from NYX called NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Cannes. If you have read my last post, the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams were my first makeup from NYX, and since then, I fell in love with the brand. I collected different shades of this lip cream but the latest one that I bought was Cannes.

• What it is: Highly pigmented, matte lip cream
• What it does: Creates various matte lip looks
• Why we love it: Delightfully creamy and lightweight, our award-winning line just expanded with two captivating new shades.

Artist Tips/Suggested Use

• How to use: Apply directly to lips, or over lipstick. Apply with lip liner to define outline of lips.

Pinterest Made Me Do It! Vol. 1

Pinterest Made Me Do It Header!

Pinterest Made Me Do It is a series that I came up with to show how I recreate looks that I find at

Hi everyone! Today’s post is a new series on my blog, similar to a “Makeup of the Day” or “Eye of the Day” kind of post except that I will link or share the image to where I got inspiration from from! I love Pinterest because it allows me to quickly search for inspirations when I don’t know how to pair a certain lipstick to an eye look. I always go there for inspiration because there are tons of talented people out there! I also have different boards where I post different items, not just makeup! If you haven’t followed me yet, click HERE!

I thought of using my Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette for today’s look. I searched and saw the image below which is very easy to do, and perfect for day time or work.

I won’t be limiting myself by strictly copying the image because most of the time, I want to add something more, like maybe a cat eye liner, or a voluminous mascara, which I always love to do! So let me now show you my look!
