The Balm Review

A company that truly lives up to its name. You know (Bomb).  I'm very impressed with the products I picked out to review.  I'm a huge lover of matte cosmetics, so when I found that The Balm has an entire eyeshadow Palette devoted to matte colors I was over the moon. That was points enough.  The colors in their Meet Matt(e) palette are great, and as with any high quality eyeshadow only requires the smallest amount on your brush to get a great wash of color on your lids. I have used this palette everyday since it arrived. If you are a regular reader of my blog you will already know that I do not like spending a lot on makeup, but I do make exceptions or splurges when a product is worth it. This my friends is one of those products.

I also chose their Time Balm Primer. I chose this because I had yet to find a primer that worked with my oily skin and didn't cause breakouts. The Balm's primer was finally a success. It did a great job at mattifying  my oily skin, and only required the smallest amount for my whole face. I use less than a pea size amount everyday.
 Lastly, I chose The Balm's Time Balm cream foundation. I racked my brain and can't remember ever using a cream foundation, so I have nothing to compare it to. All I can say is I really like this foundation. It is versatile in that it can be as sheer or as full coverage as you like. It also works well as a concealer. I love that I can easily take the little compact with me and fully touch up my makeup anywhere. Love that.
The Balm has a lot of other products that I would really like to try, especially their cleansers and masks. So head on over to The Balm's website and check out these bomb products. www.thebalm.com

I usually only wear eyeliner and mascara and that usually last forever because now that I am home with the babies I don't wear make up everyday. I will have to check out the website for sure.
