The Balm Haul | First Impressions

I've recently branched out into international waters and added a new beauty brand to my collection - The Balm.
Mary-Lou Maniser has been on my makeup wishlist since I first started blogging and I finally whipped my bank card out and bought it - along with another product that just called my name...

Seriously how gorgeous are these products?

Mary-Lou Maniser has not been off my face since I bought it, it is the most highlighting powder I have ever used. Its a pale yellow toned champagne colour, slightly too dark for my pale complexion - however if applied with a fan brush and a light hand it blends into my skin seamlessly. This also looks amazing as an inner corner highlight to brighten up dark eyes.

I was suprised at the price of this product, some products are around the same price as MAC Cosmetics. I bought my Mary-Lou Maniser from Feel Unique for  £14 - original price £17.50 - I managed to bag mine during a flash sale.

The next thing I bought was the Nude'tude palette which is the most gorgeous everyday palette known to man - it also has some plum and burgandy colours which I love! If your subscribed to my YouTube channel you'll see a red toned colour used in pretty much every tutorial - I'm obsessed! 

This palette just spoke my language it has all the colours you could ever need for a day time glam look, or a night time blown out smokey eye. It has twelve shades, four matte the rest shimmer and frost finish. I haven't had chance to fully test this palette out, but I will be filming a tutorial using this palette very soon. I picked this up for £24 - original price £30.

If you're not a online shopper, fear not Urban Outfitters are official stockists so you can swatch to your hearts content.
