The Balm Nude Eyeshadow Palette Volume 2 and Mr Write (Now) Crayon Eyeliner Pencils Swatches

Hi lovelies,

In this post, I am going to share swatches of The Balm Nude Eyeshadow Palette in Volume 2 and The Balm Mr Write (Now) Crayon Eyeliner Pencils.

Starting first with the Eyeshadow Palette.



There are a total of 12 colours in this palette and I love that the colours belong to the same colour family which make them complement one another perfectly well.

The palette comes in a slim packaging and the colours have been arranged in ascending tones to create different looks for different occasions. This is a good palette for beginners to try blending technique! 


Here are the swatches of all the eyeshadow colours in this palette.

(Left to right: Fearless, Fabulous, Flawless, Faithful, Firm, Fit, Flirty, Feisty, Friendly, Funny, Fierce, Fine)

(Left to right: Fearless, Fabulous, Flawless, Faithful, Firm, Fit)

Fearless: Use as a base colour over the eyelid or to lighten the shade over the eyelid area.
Fabulous: Use as a highlight to brighten up the eye or apply on the inner corner of the eye.
Flawless: Normal brown shade for the natural day time look.
Faithful: Light brown colour with shimmers. Great to be used with Flawless for a brighter eye look. 
Firm: Close to the shade of Flawless but with shimmers added.
Fit: This is a golden bronze shade. I don't usually use this shade as an eyeshadow but a bronzer. ^_^

(Left to right: Fit, Flirty, Feisty, Friendly, Funny, Fierce, Fine)

Flirty: Appears to be a Plum colour with gentle shimmers. This is a popular colour that never goes out of season. It is like neutral brown shade but adds a 'pop' to the appearance of the eye. 
Feisty: This is a pinkish purple shade. Not an easy colour that I can control but when apply lightly to the eyelid, it adds a little more vibrancy to the eye makeup.
Friendly: This is a dark brownish-black shade, a little close to charcoal shade but great in creating the smokey eye effect yet not too dark.
Funny: This is a darker shimmery brown shade but I'm not good at using or blending this shade as it makes my eyes appear swollen.
Fierce: This is a dark olive shade closer to ashy tone, a popular colour for Fall/winter season.
Fine: Dark, ashy brown shade but with minimal shimmers for easier wear.

My rating: 4.5/5

Next up is the Mr Write (Now) Crayon Eyeliner Pencils. I have them in 8 different shades.

(Left to right: Black, Dark Grey, Deep Purple, Dark Brown, Bronze, Navy Blue, Nude, Olive Green)


This crayon eyeliner comes in a thin, sleek packaging and comes with a sharpener at the back.


This is the total length of the eyeliner, which is good to last me a long time.


Here are the swatches of the eyeliners.

(Left to right: Black, Dark Grey, Deep Purple, Dark Brown, Bronze, Navy Blue, Nude, Olive Green)

These eyeliners remain intact even when I placed them under running water, the eyeliners did not smudge at all. I also love the shades of the eyeliners, very wearable but the only thing that troubles me is that the eyeliner is a little dry, so it takes some efforts to apply the eyeliner over the lash line.



My rating: 3/5
