This is the first makeup look of 2018. Because it was the first makeup of the year, I wanted to kick off this year’s makeup look with a good smokey eye with a pop of color. Thanks to The Balm Cosmetics for sending me their NEW Meet Matt(e) Shmaker.® eyeshadow palette, I was able to create this Emerald Smokey eye look.
Not only did they send me their NEW eyeshadow but they also sent me their matte liquid eyeliner which I became obsessed with immediately because I love a good black matte liquid eyeliner. But I’m not here to talk about the eyeliner but about the eyeshadow palette.
This new eyeshadow palette contains 6 matte and 6 shimmery shadows. When swatching the eyeshadows I noticed that the shimmery colors feel buttery. They’re very pigmented. What I do love about this palette is that there’s a variety of colors. You have your warm colors and then you have the bold colors. I love when palettes give me a variety of colors to play with.
Emerald Green Eye Look
My overall opinion of this palette is that it’s worth the purchase. You can create so many different eye looks whether it’s for the day or night. On the package, it indicates you can create bold or romantic looks with it.
