I mentioned in a recent video the story about how I met Marissa Shipman, CEO of theBalm. If you haven’t checked that video out, please do. It’ll go great with this post.
I basically wanted to publish a post with detailed pictures of all the products I received from theBalm. I haven’t tried all of the products yet so this is not a full review.
Cute little card from Marissa…
I am in love with all 3 blushes so far… They are amazing quality, super pigmented and very silky in texture.

Mary-Lou Manizer is an amazing powder luminizer in a compact form. I even used it as an eyeshadow in this look. This product is just as pigmented and silky as their blushes. I’m very impressed.
Their packaging is just adorable…

Their eyeshadow palettes are also amazing!!! I feel like a broken record but again the shadows are very blendable and silky AND pigmented.

I have only used the Balm Shelter once so I don’t really want to review it quite yet. First impressions? A little heavier and more of a matte finish than your average tinted moisturizer.

I have not used the primer yet but it definitely feels similar to Smashbox Photo Finish Primer so I’m assuming this is a silicone based primer as well. Smells nice as do all theBalm products.

The Time Balm concealer I haven’t used yet but I’ve gotten some good feedback on it since I posted my video. It looks like a heavy duty concealer so I will keep you posted on this.

Not quite sure if this is an effective plumper (I’m probably not the best tester for that) but I do love it as a gloss. It smells divine (I’m thinking chocolate pudding), has a mild tingling effect and is a nice nude color.
Cocoa My Coconut Lip Swatch
I have not used Staniac yet but it reminds me of Benetint although this seems to be more of a gel.
Stay tuned for the reviews on these products!!!
