Not only does The Balm have amazing packaging that’s a throwback to the days of squeaky clean beach fun but their products are excellent quality. I have to admit I was drawn to the colorful and creative packaging of this all-in-one-palette, but I was pleasantly surprised when I realized how amazing the makeup really is. Here is a look I put together using this palette alone. I combined the color with some brand new Palladio lipstick. Enjoy!

This palette is great to take with you when travelling (hence the name being a play on Bon Voyage!) but it only has one matte color, so you may need additional colors for a more well-rounded look.

This look is a bit intense for the daytime (but feel free to throw the rules out the window, say “Fuck it!” and wear whatever you want). There is a wide range of colors that will help you create anything from muted to extreme looks.

Disclaimer: I used a primer with these swatches so that the colors would POP!

This lip cream is without a doubt some of the best that I’ve ever used. The only downside is that they advertise it as a matte lip cream. It’s not completely matte and definitely gives off a slight shimmer. That’s OK with me. As much as I love matte colors, the over-powering drying effect is something I can do without. I am more concerned with comfort while wearing rather than finish and staying power.
