I’ve kind of moved out of my shimmer phase and I’m really obsessed with eyeshadow palettes, especially matte eyeshadow palettes, at the moment. When emilynoel83 reviewed theBalm’s new Meet Matt(e) Nude palette in a video, I knew it had to be mine! I bought it off of Hautelook when they were featuring theBalm products for half off.
Like the previous palette, all of the shades in the Meet Matt(e) Nude palette are matte except more neutral. It contains mostly grays and browns with a few lighter all over (or highlight) shades, and lacks the greenish and bluish shades found in the original Meet Matt(e).
Overall, I’m impressed. All of the shades have great pigmentation. They’re not chalky or overly soft and crumbly/powdery. I like the color selection and the variety of warm and cool neutral shades.
Note: In the swatch photos below Matt Abdul and Matt Hung look similar but in person Matt Hung has more of a purple tone to it.
