I got this stunning silvery taupe shadow in the original Balmbini palette. It is only available in palettes - not on its own as a single eye shadow. As a result, I'm a bit "stingy" using it since I really don't want to use it up. TheBalm would be very smart, indeed, to add this to their line of regular eye shadows.
All About Alex is a richly pigmented dark greyed khaki. Makes a great smokey eye and is a beautiful autumn colour. Pairs well with golds and bronzed brown shades (like Patina) as well as with greys and more traditional taupes. Lots of product for the price, too. The colour and pigmentation put brands like MAC to shame. I'd never have even known about this brand or this colour were it not for Christine and the Tempalia blog.
