TheBalm's Rockstar Balm Jovi Palette

I think makeup palettes are the greatest invention in the makeup world. Aside from them being uber convenient to lug around when you travel, they're made to complement each other inside that palette! You can create lots of looks with palettes like these, and you only have to buy one every now and then specially when the palette you buy contains blush and lipsticks already!

TheBalm's Rockstar Palette -Balm Jovi, PhP 2,695

(Click READ MORE to know more...)

TheBalm's Rockstar Balm Jovi Palette includes 12 very wearable and versatile shades, 1 highlighter, 1 blush, and 2 lipsticks. The eyeshadows can be mix-matched with each other and create seamless blends, or you can use each of them on their own for just a wash of color on your lids.


The highlighter or luminizer is gorgeous to use on your cheekbones to life them, on the apples of your cheeks to make them pop out, or use it to highlight your nose line! The blush is a beautiful, subtle peach pink shade that can suit both fair and dark skinned women. It's very versatile! The lippies are sheer so you can just top this on your favorite lippie, but not so sheer that you can't wear it alone.


I love the paper packaging. Just slide the sleeve off to the side and you will reveal the palette. The sleeve keeps the palette from opening up in your cosmetic case and damaging the products in it.


The cover is magnetized so it's protected from dust getting on the products, specially the lipsticks! Don't you just hate it when dust gets on potted lip products or your cream blushes? So the magnet keeps it from flapping and opening about.


As you can see, the palette is not that big, it's about the size of a half sheet of paper. It's actually quite compact for something that contains that many products. Although It's not like you can bring it with you in your purse for everyday use (but you can if you want), but it's thin enough to carry in your travel vanity kit along with your travel-sized makeup brushes.


I love that it's almost the same size as my Charm travel brushes! It can fit in my travel cosmetic case!


You can see that the eyeshadows are very compact. They may look small, but the shadows last a long time! It's more or less about 1g per eyeshadow, which is basically a lot already unless you tend to wear a lot of smokey eyes.


The 2 lippies in this palette are very versatile. They basically just give tint on your lips but with a little bit more coverage than just tint. They can go with either fair or dark skinned women so it can swing both ways.


The palette is very thin! I love how thin this palette is, it's not bulky or heavy to bring around because of the paper container. The packaging itself is made out of sturdy paper/cardboard. Recyclables! Yay!


Here are the swatches of each eyeshadow in the palette. These are just a single dip and swipe on the products, so they are very pigmented!


Blushes
Lipsticks
You will find on the bottom of the palette that there are look suggestions. I chose the very first suggested look on the illustration: 
Alice Cooper+Third Eye Blind+Don't You Want Me?+Milly
I am just in love with this look! If you skip the eyeliner, this look is very wearable during the day!


If you want a more dramatic look, just line your waterlines with black khol pencil!
