Heyya~
First of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR GUYS!! I hope you can achieve whatever dreams you have this year or at least make a great progress of it! :D
    Anyway, it’s been a quite long time since i review about beauty stuff, so many things to do, that i dont really have time to take pictures, editing or make a long post. Anyway i have a time now (still busy with my thesis and research though, but i need a break!).
    Now i want to review about The Balm Nude ‘tude Eyeshadow Palette. I won the palette from a makeup contest held by Pygmalion Land- http://www.pygmalionland.com/ (visit her web, she has an awesome one!) and sponsored by The Balm ID.
    Hehehe im proudly say that i won the first place. Quite a shock actually, it was my first time participating on a makeup contest and i won! Sooo happy! More happy that i won this super awesome gift, The Balm Nude ‘tude palette and The Balm Instain - Swiss dot (i’ll try to review it as soon as possible).
—Okaaayy, let’s start!

    Overall, i like this palette so much! Pigmented well and the shades are pretty! As you can see in the swatches, i didnt use any base and the colors really came out well.
    Some of the shades are glittery (sassy, stubborn, selfish, sophisticated, snobby, stand-offish, seductive and silly) and some are not (sexy, serious, sleek, and sultry). You can use it for natural daily look, or smoky sexy party look. It has all the colors you can use to make the looks!
    Anyway even though it pigmented well and have a nice colors, i think it quite powdery. But it doesnt really bother me.
    As for the brush, it’s quite thick and soft. I used it a few times and it’s quite good, but i prefer using my eyeshadow brush, im used to it. The packaging is also adorable! Look vintage, simple and sexy! I like nice packaging, plus it has this HUGE mirror, hahhaa make me easier to use it while im outside and very handy for traveling.  I can just bring this makeup palette if im out of town and i think it would cover my need to look pretty all the time! :D
Pro:
+ nice choice of neutral shades
+ pigmented
+ big mirror
+ quite easy to carry
+ nice brush
+ cute packaging
Cons:
- quite pricey for me
- a bit powdery
- i wish it would last longer that 12 months :(
Overall Rating: 4/5 

    So, if you guys have this on your wishlist or not sure yet, i recommend this cute neutral eyeshadow palette and yes, go buy it! Hehehe ;)
Here’s some pic of me using shades from this palette :D
