Beauty: Bon Jovi Palette

 photo 2014-05-02190138_zpsea48f22e.jpgI was waiting to photograph this all term – right the way from Christmas through to Easter! I first read about it on Tattooed Tealady and knew it would make a perfect present for my sister (who loves all kinds of rock-style music – she’s into more recent bands for my eighties taste though!). After conferring with my mum it become the first piece of proper makeup my sister has ever owned, and she loves it!

The shadows are so buttery soft, and well pigmented. From a beginners point of view they are also easy to apply as mistakes blend out well! I must say that I personally felt the pans were a little small for the price, and I know this is something that is said of a lot of theBalm’s products.

And there’s some lip shades too. These feel a little sticky, but they are lovely just not to my taste)

Have you tried any products from theBalm?
