theBalm - The Muppet Show palette



I placed my first ever purchase from theBalm just about two weeks for the highly anticipated "The Muppet Show: Cast Your Shadow" face palette. This limited edition palette contains 16 eye shadows/liners, 2 lip/cheek stains, 1 lip gloss and an applicator brush. Each color has a Muppet-themed name (such as "Wocka Wocka" & "Great Gonzo") and the packaging is super cute. theBalm's Facebook page noted that a set could be reserved by your email address. Since there was such a limited amount being offered at one per household, I sent my email address and figured if I missed out, it wouldn't be such a big deal. I was one of the lucky ones and based on the superb reviews from makeup bloggers that I follow, I placed my order. Considering the amount of items in this palette, the $44.50 price wasn't so bad.


Great interior packaging surrounds a good sized mirror

I swatched the colors on my hands to check on the color pay-off and I think they are really nice. They seem to have good pigment and I think they will be long-lasting once I actually do put them to use. It's also a great palette to travel with because you really have all you need in one case and there are enough colors for different looks.

Looks like you can still purchase "The Muppet Show" palette here.
Have you purchased from theBalm before?

I have never purchased from theBalm before, though I am not much of a make-up gal anyways. These palette colors looks like a lot of fun. I am taking the kids to see the Muppets movie when it comes out ;)
