The Balm - Balm Jovi Rockstar Face Palette

Balm Jovi Palette Cover

Hey guys!
This post is long over due!
Sorry in Advance for the weird lighting in the picture, Such a dark rainy day today!

 I'm going to be talking about my newest palette!  I recieved it as a gift from the lovely Shelby over at Shelbys Life.

 She was lucky enough to take part in the buy one get one 50% off sale that our local Rexall store had on all "The Balm" products and decided to share the love!!

I'm pretty sure I almost cried when I received this palette! Its just so cool!
Anyone who knows me knows I'm a sucker for puns.

All the shadow colours can be used wet or dry and the lip colours can apparently also double as a cheek colour.
The entire palette is also Talc and Paraben-free

I'm just absolutely in love with the shade names and the colours. You'll see what I mean in just a second!

Each colour's name is based on different bands from its own "era".

There are 3 different music era categories with four 10.8g shadows in each.
The palette also contains;
a 2.8g face highlighter, a 2.8g blush and
then there are two 4g lip colours.

The first set of shadows are your Heavy Metal colours, which are shimmery metallics.
 Ready for the names?

  1. Metal-ica- a shimmery silver 
  2. Iron Main-in -  a shimmery gold 
  3. Lead Zeppelin - a shimmery Lead (my favourite)
  4. Alice Copper - a shimmery Copper 
The Heavy Metals are by far my favourite set of 4.

The next set of 4 are your Classical colours! These are all your neutral matte colours which I found fitting because they are your foundation, your basics and your old faithfuls.
They are:

  1. Adagio -  Beige Matte 
  2. Allegro - Brown Matte
  3. Moderato - Dark purple matte 
  4. Presto - Deeper Brown Matte
The final Era is Alternative, They are all gorgeous colours.
This era contains

  1. Blink 1982 -Light Mauve Shimmer 
  2. The Stroke - Deep Navy Shimmer 
  3. REM- Lilac Shimmer 
  4. Third Eye Blinded - Light Peach Shimmer
Your Highlighter is called "Solid Gold" in its own category of Disco Disco.
Your Blush is called "Don't you want me?" in the Category POP! POP!

The really exciting thing about the blush is that it is actually a small version The Balms "Fratboy" Blush which I also wanted to try at some point!

Last but not least you have the Lip Sync and Playback section which contains your two lip colours

  1. Milly- Nude Lip
  2. Vanilly -Berry Red Lip
All the colours are so soft and pigmented.

They honestly feel like silk on your eyelids!

I feel like The Balm is really stepping up their game and will soon become an even bigger beauty favourite for a lot of people in the near future.

I will at some point upload a look with this palette once I play with it a bit more and find one I love!!

Thanks for reading!
