This afternoon I’ve got theBalm Shady Lady and Shady Lady Vol. 2 swatches for ya! If interested in seeing swatches of Shady Lady Vol. 3, see here, I swatched it awhile ago.
the Shady Lady palettes all offer nine eyeshadow/liner shades enclosed in a cardboard palette with a large mirror inside. All have a different cute funky animal print on the outside. There is just one repeating shade in these two, which is great!
All swatches are done over a primer and I got great payoff. They feel soft, easy to apply and are pretty and shimmery (no mattes in these).
Caught In The Act Courtney, Shameless Shana, Luscious Lana, Jealous Jordana, Risque Renee
Caught In The Act Courtney is a brown base with gold and copper glitter.
Shameless Shana is a warm bronze/brown metallic.
Luscious Lana is a light rose pink shimmer
Jealous Jordana is a deep shimmery forest green.
Risque Renee is a deep greyed out navy blue shimmer.
Curvy Cami, Jet-Setting Jennifer, All About Alex, Easy Wheezie
Curvy Cami is an intense warm violet shimmer.
Jet-Setting Jennifer is a light yellow/gold metallic with a slight duochrome.
All About Alex is a medium mossy green metallic.
Easy Wheezie is a medium greyish blue metallic.
Caught In The Act Courtney, Feisty Felicia, Insane Jane, Bossy Bobbi, Makeout Mary
Caught In The Act Courtney (the only repeat of Vol. 1) is a brown base with gold and copper glitter.
Feisty Felicia is a deep purple with fuchsia glitter.
Insane Jane is a metallic taupe.
Bossy Bobbi is a medium muted blue metallic.
Makeout Mary is a medium olive green metallic.
Just This Once Jamie, Mischievous Marissa, Tempting Tara, Devilish Danielle
Just This Once Jamie is a light metallic mauve.
Mischievous Marissa is a tangerine/peach metallic.
Tempting Tara is a bright white shimmer.
Devilish Danielle is a pale peachy champagne shimmer.
Overall: I love both of these palettes because the pigment is there, the textures are really nice and soft and there is a nice variety of shades in each one. I think Vol. 1 appeals to me just a teeny bit more than Vol. 2 because of Jealous Jordana, Curvy Cami and Jet-Setting Jennifer.
Have you tried any of the Shady Lady Palettes? Which of the three is your favorite?
