theBalm Meet Matt(e) Eyeshadow Palette

TheBalm proudly introduces Meet Matt(e), a shadow palette that will meet all of your matte needs! The nine shadows found in this compact palette (named after our favorite Matthews next door) can be combined to create a multitude of soft and wearable looks. In the daytime, choose more neutral shades to seamlessly blend together, enhance your eyes, and compliment your complexion. In the evening, create a sultry, smoky eye by concentrating the velvety, rich colors at the lash line and blend towards the crease. Meet Matt(e) offers the best in matte color, versatility, and convenience.

Meet Matt(e) is the perfect portable size. This palette can be easily tucked into a makeup bag for the gym, in the top drawer of your desk, or even the tiniest evening clutch. You can take him anywhere!

They had some blushes, the highlighter/bronzer duo, the Shady Lady #2, and Shady Lady #3 at my TJMaxx. Check it before purchase. Some of the palettes and sets had broken mirrors and/or broken shadow.

I need this one. I was looking through all of the palette’s that I do have an I have very few good mattes. Christine how does this brand usually apply with their matte shades? Thank you.

YES YES YES! Am I the only one tired with shimmer palettes? Matte needs to make a come back or something, because if you work corporate, shimmer has no place there. And I love they didn’t include a white shade as highlighter but a skin toned shade instead.

Christine, do you have a recommendation for matte palettes? 🙂

The colors aren’t crazy exciting, but I love the general idea. There really needs to be more matte palettes (especially with bright, fun colors). I am crossing my fingers and hoping Urban Decay makes an awesome matte palette one day.

I don’t put too hope for that. especially when they just put all the matte eyeshadow singles on sale for super cheap. It might take a while then

I posted a few days ago about theBalm Shady Lady II & III. This palette is also available at both TJ Maxx & Marshall’s in Michigan (as of Aug 10th, 2011). So check yours out…A great price – $16.99. I love the other palettes! Peace!

I love TheBalm’s eyeshadows and wish more were available here (the Sephora near me doesn’t carry it at all and the drugstore near my school carries a limited collection – they had The Balmbini but have never had any of the Shady Lady palettes). I discovered the line thanks to you and this site, Christine. Such clever names and packaging, as always (when I just saw the titled, I thought it was going to be a mattifying powder!)

Kirsten Avatar

I work at Marshalls and occasionally we get theBalm products. It never sells though because people where I live have no idea what Sephora or theBalm is. We just got this in for $16.99, and I’m definitely going to pick it up.

I love the Balm for their packaging but I’ve never bought any of their products because I already had so many things that were similar… But honestly I LOVE the idea behind this palette! It’s really cute, and despite the fact they ditched the pinup/animal print packaging (which I’m usually a total sucker for), I absolutely love it. Matte eyeshadows look so nice on.

LM Avatar

their shades look rather basic but they really aren’t. often I’ll have two shadows side by side and both look similar but when I swatch thebalm it looks 100x prettier. and the texture and pigmentation is better than UD, MAC, etc.

Michelle Avatar

OMG! Not only do I love theBalm, but my bf is named Matt and he kinda looks like the guy on the front. Haha. Enough of a reason for me to purchase!

A Matt(e) palette! The colours aren’t inspiring but I love mattes.
I’m going to wait until I see the swatches. Christine, are you going to be able to do swatches for us?

Kat Avatar

I have the Shady Lady 2 palette and I love it, so I’m excited for this! Especially since I have so few matte eyeshadows.
Will there be a review on this?

stacey Avatar

matte shadows are not my cup of tea…..actually I look tired in flat colored shadows….that said….neither is a pic of a caricature of a male that epitomize something of the American ’50- ’60s on my makeup…I already own the Balm’s Cabana Boy for its pigmented blush…needs to stay gender neutral.

artemis Avatar

i love how the matt smith is a nude 🙂 like smith is a common name….and ramirez is olive, like their skintone, chung is pale and pink, like asians like their make-up :)) matt mcdonald is a bold american loool rant
fun idea but that guy’s eyebrows are HUGE

They have this palette at TJ Maxx for I believe 12-16 dollars, just saw it today, I didn’t know it was new, I thought it was a past collection, now I will go and buy it..LOL it sure beats paying full price, so ladies if there is a TJ Maxx close to you grab yours while you still can. =-)

i just bought mine from marshalla for $17. i hate buying any type of beauty product from marshalls and tj maxx because everyone rips it open and sticks their fingers in all of the products. i double checked mine before i bought it to make sure it wasn’t too abused and i was pretty lucky that it was in good condition. i noticed on the sephora website that a lot of thebalm products are not in stock. and now with thebalm being sold at discounted prices at marshalls and tj maxx i bet that sephora wont be carying thebalm in the future…..
