This is part two of our review of theBalm Balm Voyage Makeup Palette ($42.50 for 1.21 oz.), so if you missed the first part, check out this post.

A1 is a soft, pink-tinged mauve with a frosted finish. It had nice pigmentation, and it was soft and buttery to the touch, so it applied smoothly and evenly. Urban Decay Bordello is pinker. MAC Circa Plum is darker, purpler. Giorgio Armani #27 is darker. See comparison swatches.

B1 is a light beige with neutral-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color payoff, but the texture was so soft that it turned a bit powdery. Urban Decay Bleach is yellower. LORAC Cream is pinker. theBalm Matt Smith is a touch cooler-toned. theBalm Adagio is also a bit cooler-toned. Urban Decay Anonymous is satiny. Urban Decay Walk of Shame is similar. See comparison swatches.

C1 is a soft, light-medium yellow gold with a frosted finish. It had decent pigmentation but was somewhat powdery. Illamasqua Precipice is a cream product. Disney Sand in the Glass is darker. Urban Decay Vanilla is lighter. MAC Nylon is more frosted. Chanel Pearl River #2 is similar. See comparison swatches.

D1 is a yellow gold with a frosted sheen. It had so-so color payoff, though the texture felt soft, finely-milled, and smooth. NYX Hot Yellow is lighter. NARS Goldfinger is similar. MAC Gorgeous Gold is also similar. bareMinerals Standing O is lighter. Inglot #403 is darker. See comparison swatches.

Second Officer is a cool-toned, blue-based muted red with a satin finish. On cheeks, as it tends to be applied more lightly, it turns to a pinkish-red coloring, and then on lids, it is more opaque and bolder. It lasted for five and a half hours on lips but was quite drying, while it lasted for eight hours well as a blush. MAC Keep It Casual is not as cool-toned. See comparison swatches.

First Officer is a medium-dark, peachy orange with a satin finish. It wore well for four and a half hours on lips but was drying, and then it wore well for almost eight hours on cheeks. Chanel Preesage is lighter. MAC Out for Fun is similar. Illamasqua Rude is lighter. See comparison swatches.

Captain is a plummy pink with a satin finish and cool undertones. It had full color coverage when applied to lips, but once again, it was drying when worn, though it lasted for five hours. As a blush, it wore well for eight hours. Illamasqua Peaked is lighter, more plum. Chanel Fantastic is brighter. Illamasqua Seduce is more plum. See comparison swatches.
