The Balm is the BOMB!

It isn’t often that I find a new brand where I pretty much like everything.  But, I’m here to tell you, The Balm is one of those brands.

With kitschy (and frankly, catchy) marketing such as The Muppet’s palette, a forthcoming Bon Jovi offering and names like Betty Lou-manizer, the San Francisco based company offers fun, functional makeup for a reasonable price.

Founder Marissa Shipman started The Balm when she was unable to find simple products that she could add to her beauty routine.  As it often is, necessity is the mother of invention, and Marissa headed off to the library – ok fine, Amazon.com, to get some instruction on making her own makeup, and a beautiful idea was born.

Packed full of skin pleasing ingredients and no parabens, these are some colors that pack a punch.  So far, I’ve tried about 5 eye palettes and love each one.  I also have Time Balm, a face primer packed full of natural ingredients which I will review very soon for you lovely ladies.

The eyeshadows are creamy, and highly pigmented.  They have minimal fallout, and stay put.  The high impact pigments of the colors lets you use some double duty as liners, which is a great deal since you can tuck these beautiful palettes in your purse for touch ups and overnights.

The Balm often has great deals online, but you can also find them on Soap.com, DermStore.com, Beauty.com and several retail outlets.  A not so well kept secret is taht if you scour local TJ Maxx and Marshall’s stores, you can often find past season merchandise for bargain basement prices.

Reviews on Time Blam, Nude Tude, and Meet Matte coming soon!
