I’ve always been so curious about The Balm eyeshadows but just have never wanted to buy their big eyeshadow palettes in order to try them. So when I saw this smokey eye palette trio called Smoke Balm ($12), I jumped on it.
There are two versions sold exclusively at Kohl’s, set one and set two. Set One is more of your true smokey eye based around blacks and grays. I went with Set Two which included a dark forest green shimmer, medium matte brown and a shimmery champagne.
I’ve heard so many people rave about The Balm eyeshadows and I can see why they are so popular. These three shades are all very pigmented and soft and creamy. The eyeshadows blend easily and I get great color payoff with very little effort.
I have to say that for the price you get a really great quality palette. I love how small and convenient it is for travel. The lid has a magnetic closure so it won’t make a mess in your makeup bag. Plus you get a nice size mirror in the lid.
I highly recommend this eyeshadow trio. Thinking ahead a few months, this would make an awesome stocking stuffer. Plus the packaging is adorable as is the usual with all The Balm products.
