Here are the swatches of the new theBalm Balm Voyage Holiday Face Palette. If you need information about the price, availability, ingredients, and photos of the packaging please refer to Part 1.
Overall, this appears to be another great palette from theBalm. The textures of these shadows aren’t quite as buttery soft as some of their previous palettes — only the glittery C4 shade felt noticeably dry to me — but they aren’t stiff/hard by any means and still swatched nicely without the aid of a primer.
For the most part all of the shadows had good to excellent pigmentation with the exception of A2, B2, B3, and D1 which were decent but applied sheerer than the rest.
The only matte shades in the palette are B1, B3, C2 and C3. The rest have varying levels of sheen, shimmer and frost.
All three lip/cheek colors in the Balm Voyage palette are shimmer-free and feel considerably drier/stiffer in the pans compared to the wetter, creamier formulas of the NYX Rouge Cream Cheek and Stila Convertible Color blushes. However, they all have really good pigmentation especially First Officer, the orange shade.
