This palette is originally $36, and is well worth the money. Currently you can find it on Hautelook for 50% off, at $18
You can always find this palette on the company's website, www.TheBalm.com (witty!)
The Balm is a relatively new cosmetic company, and is 100% cruelty-free, and made in the USA.
All of these pictures are swatched over a primer, and done so with a clean, dry, flat eyeshadow brush.
Overall, I really love the texture of these eyeshadows. They are very VERY blendable and soft, similar to Urban Decay's shadows. Although they do blend a little sheer, when you pack the color on they are truly lovely. Since they are so soft, however, so I do recommend using a primer on your lids first.
This palette offers a variety of matte, almost-matte, and shimmery shades, but none are overly glittery or unwearable. The only color I wish was included was a really light brown, because that would make this the ultimate palette.
Sassy - An almost-matte, satin white. This is very opaque, and makes for a great highlight. It is not shimmery but catches the light in a gorgeous way.
Snobby - A slightly shimmery yellow-gold. It's very warm and pretty, and although it seems intimidating in the pan, can go over any eyeshadow and add a pretty metallic finish. It is lovely on it's own.
Stubborn - Another shadow with light shimmer, this is a light pink with really subtle blue undertones. This is also very opaque.
Stand-offish - This looks very similar in color to Stubborn in the pan, but on the skin it is a gloriously shimmery pink with gold undertones. It's just plain glamorous, but when blended too much it loses it's color and is just shimmer (on my skintone anyway)
Selfish - A shimmery taupe, with a gorgeous finish. Packed on it looks incredible, and when blended looks much more light.
Sultry - This is a matte, milk chocolate color with a bit of red in it. It really looks like a Hershey bar. It blends out beautifully, and when blended is just as opaque as when it is packed on.
Sophisticated - This is a much deeper brown, with almost a purple undertone. It's dark and delicious. Slightly shimmery.
Seductive - A medium-shade, shimmery brown with golden undertones. This is flawless.
Sexy - It's sexy. It's a deep matte plum, and is extremely pigmented and smooth.
Silly - A slightly darker plum with golden shimmer, but transfers to the skin as a more brownish shade of plum.
Serious - A pure, jet black that looks completely matte in the pan, but has just the slightest sparkle to it. It doesn't look cheap, and is a very rich color.
Sleek - A warm-toned charcoal, also matte. Very dense color.
Overall I really would rate this quite high. The packaging is adorable as well, and the palette itself is thin, and uses magnets to keep closed.
I really recommend trying it out! I would say that this palette is better for more dramatic, dark, or going-out looks, simply because most of the shades are on the dark side, and there isn't a good transitioning color.
If you've tried this palette, let me know what you think!
