"How you doin?" Mr. Matt(e) Nude... and where have you been all my life? Meet Matt(e)s my new friend! This dude has so much swag with his perfectly rich, highly pigmented, not your average size shadow palette, you'll want to make him your friend too! WHEW! This guy has the cutest names to his shadows too! Click on the photo and take a look at the names... Matt Johnson, Matt Garcia, Matt Malloy, Matt Wood etc. Umm how cute is that? I have quickly become a fan of theBalm products after placing my first order on Hautelook earlier this year! Click here and read my review on theBalm's bronzer in Bahama Mama. Moving on...
So where can you find this Matt(e) guy? Hautelook for starters, they have flash sales every few months or so and I snagged this guy for about $20 bucks. Other places... Amazon, theBalm, some Walgreens.
Meet Matt(e) Nude Retails for $42.00

As a matt(e)r of fact, this palette is versatile enough to wear day and night, as liners and as all-over colors...the whole 9 yards! With so many guys to choose from, you're sure to find your perfect shade, no matt(e)r what!

You still with me? What do you think? I thought so... LOL. Lets talk bullet points? Si? ok
- Pigmentation: Super rich, vibrant!
- Longevity: DEAD ON! Literally. LOL it stays on ALL DAY. It maintains its richness throughout the day with no problems (with eye primer).
- Texture/Application: RICH, concentrated, soft. The shadows (just like any other) have MINOR/TINY fall out. Nothing drastic at all. Applies like butter! Smooth, easy with great blendability.
The palette is versatile and a companion to many shadows/palettes you may already own. I love the secure packaging it comes in. Heavy duty cardboard, giant mirror with a magnetic closure. I'm a bargain shopper and while the shadows and the brand are TOP-NOTCH, I wouldn't pay the full price. Why? Well, because you're given options, either through HauteLook or the theBalm's site when they offer random steals and deals! If you're looking for a new brand to try, with great quality... I say give this "Guy" a try!!
Make it a skinPOREfection day!
