I've met Matt(e), and he was nude...

So there is a new man in my life! Matt(e)! Obviously, my Matt(e) is of the eyeshadow variety. I got this full sized palette with my Birchbox points, and I am absolutely LOVING it! The Meet Matt(e) Nude palette from The Balm is a collection of 9 creamy, matte eyeshadows. The colors range from varying shades of browns, to a grey/purple, to a flesh toned color. This kit also came with a full sized Put A Lid On It primer.

The Balm has amazing packaging, and I am huge fan of their products. This palette is adding to my already deep love of The Balm. I mean, how cute is that each shadow is named after a different Matt? Major props to their creative department, because they knock it out of the park!

Before I talk about the colors, I need to talk about the consistency. These shadows are so creamy, and not chalky like some matte eyeshadows can be. There is hardly any fall out from these shadows. They go on like a dream and blend beautifully. It is definitely my new favorite palette. The Put A Lid on It primer, is velvety smooth and holds my shadows in place. (As I've said earlier, I have oily lids, and so far no primer has been able to hold my shadows in place all day.) 

The Colors:

Matt Johnson is a blue toned grey
Matt Garcia is a brown with burgandy undertones
Matt Malloy is a classic white highlight
Matt Rosen is a lighter brown
Matt Wood is a classic dark brown
Matt Singh is a salmon color that is beautiful for blending
Matt Abdul is a light grey
Matt Lombardi is a light yellow that resembles a medium skin tone
Matt Hung is a deep grey with purple undertones

This is a palette where the colors are versatile, so you can create a neutral eye look one day and a soft smokey eye the next. If you are looking for a high quality, all matte eyeshadow palette,  I'd bet on this one. 

Have you tried the Meet Matt(e) Nude palette? Do you love all matte eyeshadows? I'd love to hear from you! Leave me a comment and let me know!
